We would like to take a minute to remember those lost and impacted by the events that occurred on 9/11. Remembering a tragedy is never easy, but knowing the memory will live on for generations can bring strength. We would also like to thank the brave men and women who over the past years have defended our country in harsh and lonely environments. Your sacrifices will also never be forgotten. We are very proud to say we have supported service men and women in Kuwait and Iraq and continue now in the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).
The past week saw two business titans, Richard Branson and Elon Musk, announce that their respective space companies were planning to deliver internet service via satellite. We applaud their vision of using satellites to bring the internet to underserved areas of the world. Satellites are an excellent choice for beaming signals to locations that have little or no infrastructure. Rural parts of the U.S., however, are better served by focusing on a simpler and more cost-effective communication technology – wireless.
In his State of the Union address on Jan. 20, 2015, President Obama spoke of the need to build the fastest internet networks "so that the next generation of digital innovators and entrepreneurs have the platform to keep reshaping our world." We believe it is wireless connectivity, not satellite, that holds the greatest potential to fulfill this need quickly, reliably and cost-efficiently.
The financial and technological health of a wireless network installation project depends, to a large extent, on the quality of its RFP. Well-constructed RFPs are usually clear about their goals and explicit in their specifications. On the other hand, an RFP that is ambiguous or skips over critical information invariably falls prey to change orders and overruns of time and budget.
Companies of all sizes have long reaped the benefits of the networked workplace – increased employee communication, collaboration and productivity. Many of those networks are going wireless. This trend will only accelerate as employees become more mobile, data streams grow larger and businesses need communication channels to be ubiquitous.
Many companies are realizing that their legacy wired networks cannot keep up with the explosive rise in network usage and complexity. Rather than try to switch wholesale from wired to wireless, they see the advantages in maintaining some combination of wired and wireless networks. They rely on these networks for a growing number of needs, from giving employees access to business applications to facilitating operations.
On this Veterans Day, RESOLUTE Partners would like to express our sincere thanks to you and your families for your dedication, service and sacrifice.
Good to see today’s announcement that Scotland is rolling out free public access Wi-Fi hot spots in government buildings in cities such as Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Perth.
Across the globe, access to the Internet from virtually anywhere has become a major priority for governments striving to improve the quality of life and encourage economic development. Once the core infrastructure, fiber backbone or wireless connectivity, is in place the installation and activation of “hot spots” such as those planned for Scotland can take place quickly.
