Recognizing Virtual Meeting Fatigue and What You Can Do About It

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.

QUANTUM CRYPTOGRAPHY: HOW QUANTUM COMPUTING WILL HELP SECURE 5G NETWORKS?

Article | February 25, 2020

Quantum Computing is the use of quantum-mechanical phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computation. Quantum computers perform calculations based on the probability of an object’s state before it is measured – instead of just 1s or 0s – which means they have the potential to process more data compared to classical computers. A quantum computer works with particles that can be in superposition. Observing the market trends we can say that quantum computing will change our computer architecture, IT architecture, and even corporate structure.

How a modern data stack is unlocking agility across the retail industry

Article | May 19, 2021

In today’s shop-from-anywhere world, the model for success continues to change. Tried and true techniques are becoming obsolete as consumer expectations evolve, demand volatility rises, and supply chain disruptions become more frequent. Retailers are also dealing with online shopping surges that add new complexities to existing data strategies due to an influx of raw, unprepped, and largely underutilized data.

NOT SO FAST: HOW CORONAVIRUS IS DELAYING THE 5G ROLLOUT

Article | April 20, 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been relentlessly spreading across the world. Countless events, both international and domestic, big and small, have been either postponed or canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. This was supposed to be the year the 5G network rollout would make the technology mainstream and widely available. But the much-anticipated rollout of the lightning-quick 5G network may now be in the slow lane. Because of the increasing spread of the disease in many European countries, various 5G network spectrum regulators have postponed the long-awaited auction of the 5G spectrum. These auctions were crucial for network providers to launch or expand the already existing 5G network systems.

Demand for compute remains strong in 1Q21

Article | May 20, 2021

Demand for data center compute continues to be strong and we believe 1Q21 would have been even stronger had it not been for the semiconductor supply shortage. We learned from vendors that the flow of server CPUs out of TSMC and Intel’s fabs was steady in 1Q21 but supply of other components necessary to build a server was tight, including power semis, BMC and PCB substrate.
