In less than a decade, wireless LANs have evolved from a niche technology useable
only by a few specialized applications to the default media of choice for millions of
businesses and consumers. And WLANs continue to evolve. The latest generation of
high-speed wireless LAN technology, based on the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Draft 802.11n standard, are now becoming available.

How a 5G coronavirus conspiracy spread across Europe

Article | April 16, 2020

At about 9.30pm on Easter Monday, in the small Dutch town of Almere near Amsterdam, the fire brigade was called to put out a blaze at a large telecoms mast—the second fire of its kind that night in the area. Though neither of the Almere towers were equipped with any of the latest 5G telecoms equipment—in fact one was designed only for use by the emergency services—authorities soon concluded that the fires were perpetrated by vandals acting in the name of an unusual theory: that 5G networks have contributed to the coronavirus pandemic.

Meet Delta Sharing: Access more data with secure, open source data sharing

Article | May 26, 2021

If we’ve learned anything in the past year, it’s how much our progress hinges on the ability to share and collaborate around data.During the pandemic, we watched as scientists from around the world raced to develop COVID-19 vaccines in record time. A process that typically takes 10 to 15 years took less than a year—due in part to global collaboration and data sharing. As we transition to the post-COVID-19 era, the “need for speed has never been greater,” says McKinsey. The organizations that will thrive in this new economy will facilitate collaboration, empower individuals and teams, and build impactful partnerships. That success requires shifting from the traditional “don’t share data unless” mindset to a data-sharing mindset grounded in a solid foundation of technology, data-driven culture, and processes.

Recognizing Virtual Meeting Fatigue and What You Can Do About It

Article | May 20, 2021

I’m a new-ish remote worker and, although I love 99% of everything associated with it, lately, after every virtual meeting I have, I’m feeling exhausted and drained. And not in the normal, everyday work exhausted and drained kind of way. It’s a peculiar combination of eye strain, headaches, and general malaise that I really only experience after a long day of virtual meetings. I was curious if others were feeling the same so I did a completely non-scientific study of my remote work friends to see how they’ve been feeling. Turns out, I’m not alone. Workers everywhere are going through a huge transition as the work from anywhere model has accelerated at breakneck speed since the pandemic. Although some parts of the world are slowly returning to a new normal, many employers, including Tangoe, have made the decision to keep the work from anywhere model while some organizations are electing to use a hybrid model of partly remote, partly in-office.
