Over the past two years, remote work has evolved from a trend talked about by many but tried by few into the only way to work. For some, the arrangement has worked so well that there’s no going back.

Having promised that the UK would be enjoying a fully fibre optic network by 2025, the UK government now seems likely to fail.

The futurist vision of the next decade is grand. From brain-computer interfaces that blend human insight and machine-driven analytics to simulations you can experience through all five senses, every year reality seems to get closer to the realm of science fiction.

At home, you can often simply plug in a router to enjoy the benefits of excellent Wi-Fi coverage. In the workplace, however, things become a little more complicated.
The first thing you need to do is clarify what constitutes a successful Wi-Fi deployment. Every organisation is different, and what works well for the superstore down the road might not be appropriate for the college around the corner, or the factory in the next street.
