2021 Technology Trends

2021 is here and with it, new opportunities for growth and trends among a variety of industries. As we saw in 2020 with the onset of COVID19, life can change quickly and the businesses that innovate and adapt are best positioned to survive and thrive. Learn about what is ahead for this new year, and how Vision Net will power what is ahead.

Remote work and learning | Even after schools and businesses re-open to in-person work and learning, many parents, teachers, employees and employers will prefer to continue remote operations. Vision Net’s business solutions, including our Work Anywhere Suite, supports adaptable and flexible options so that schools, businesses, and organizations have the tools they need to be successful. According to a survey by Intermedia, 57% of small to medium-sized business owners said they will continue to offer remote work options into 2021. This means that you may need to invest in additional technology and software solutions to ensure that your employees can telework. Vision Net’s network of professionals can help you find the best solution for your business’ budget and needs.

Videoconferencing | This area rapidly grew during the pandemic and shows no signs of slowing down. Microsoft Teams, Zoom and other videoconferencing are industry standards. Videoconferencing tools help remote teams engage, track workflow, and maintain productivity. With Vision Net’s Microsoft Teams platforms, your employees can create a virtual office that replicates working together in person, supported by our robust and reliable network to ensure output and communication is uninterrupted.

Telehealth and telemedicine rapidly expand | The health care industry has shown its flexibility in providing care during the pandemic. A decade in the making, telemedicine has provided advanced medical technology to patients in rural areas. 2020 showed that telemedicine is an adaptable and viable option to in-person office visits and consultations. Many private and public practices have implemented telehealth options such as doctor-patient video chats, AI-based diagnostics, and no-contact-based medication delivery. Patient visits need to remain confidential and secure, and Vision Net’s security tools will keep all telehealth interactions secure and in compliance of HIPPA regulations.

5G | Demand for high-speed internet and a shift toward well-connected homes, smart cities, and autonomous mobility have pushed the advancement of 5G technology, a trend that will accelerate in 2021. This year, Vision Net will continue our investment in our robust and redundant fiber network along with the network upgrades to bring 5G to the region. Along with our partners, we are committed to ensuring businesses, communities, and our clients have the connectivity options they need.

Whatever 2021 brings, Vision Net has the resources and solutions to support your network, your business, and your success. Learn more on how Vision Net can help make 2021 an amazing year for your growth.
