We have all become accustomed to wireless communications, due to the evolution of cellphones and mobile data services. What most people are not aware of, however, is that wireless technology will play an even bigger role in future communications. Technology has made wireless communication faster, cheaper and more reliable. This holds some amazing advantages for traditional computer networks and the integration of different technical systems.
With the implementation of cellphone technology over the past 19 years, people have become accustomed to communicating on the move. They have become used to going places and being able to be connected without restrictions.
Wireless technology has come a long way. It never used to be ‘big’ in the office environment. Cast your mind back to the little routers we used to install … routers with limited access, area-wise. Nowadays, wireless applications lend themselves to office use, with wireless technology incorporating data use as well as telephony.
The Trunuty team predicts that the ‘merging’ of cellphones and office telephones is imminent. Soon there won’t be a physical ‘office telephone’ anymore, and all communication will be done via cellphones, with people being able to make extension calls from their cellphones, or transferring office calls to employees working on sites and at other venues.
Google recently offered wireless internet to certain areas. They are positioning themselves to offer this service to the entire world, free of charge. If they’re setting this precedent, then free wireless is where the future is at. That means we’ll be able to connect to the internet wherever we wish, and to phone whomever we want, at ridiculously cheap calling and connectivity rates.
Trunuty has personally installed ‘free’ Wi-Fi for several clients to date. This involves clients logging on to the relevant Wi-Fi spectrum free of charge, but being regularly exposed to various advertisements, so technically the ‘free’ Wi-Fi is part of a bigger marketing campaign.
It’s vital for businesses to ‘future-proof’ their companies by considering moving over to wireless technology. This includes consultation with companies who are geared to provide you with the right equipment to meet your needs. Trunuty offers this service, and all our new PABX systems come with mobile wireless licences already loaded onto them.
The progression to total wireless technology is inevitable. Are you ready for it?
