The value of connectivity in work from home
“The work from home trend brings significant challenges to residential connectivity and remote collaboration of business teams. SMB and enterprise companies don’t have the same visibility or control over the quality of internet connectivity for their remote employees. To help with maintaining business continuity and work productivity in this new era of remote working, ASSIA invented new ways of measuring, monitoring, and optimizing internet connectivity for remote teams.
John Cioffi, CEO and Founder, ASSIA
“As the pandemic restrictions ease, we expect 160M work from home employees to continue in this new normal and create average annual savings of $10,000 per worker for their companies. Based on our analysis of connectivity issues during the pandemic, 15% of the work from home population will need significantly better connectivity solutions and up to half of the population will benefit from work productivity gains through a better connection even if they are not experiencing significant interruptions on a daily basis. The long-term sustainability of this new normal working trend will very much depend on addressing the unresolved needs of teleworkers.”
Tuncay Cil, Chief Strategy Officer, ASSIA
“Lumen Technologies (formerly CenturyLink) observed a significant increase in internet traffic beginning in March due to more people working from home. I believe this trend will continue at higher than pre-pandemic levels. We are exploring the unique opportunities associated with providing necessary tools for long-term work from home needs.”
Glenn Garbelman, VP Access Architecture & Engineering, Lumen Technologies (formerly CenturyLink)
“An hour of poor connectivity for an employee working from home can significantly impact their productivity and performance. Providing employees with resilient, high performance connectivity, without interference from spouses working from home and children connecting to school or watching on-line content, and end-to-end, secure connections to company applications, is essential to maintaining business continuity and empowering them to do their best work.”
Chalan Aras, Vice President, Products, Citrix
