Welcome to the final episode in this series focused on the real-world networking challenges faced by businesses of today and the future.
This year has been an incredibly difficult one, but Episode 12 of the Switched On Thinking Podcast explores the many positives that we can take away from 2020.
Our demands on technology have dramatically increased in the last 12 months. That’s only going to continue in 2021. Host Neil C. Hughes is joined once again by our first ever guest, Richard Jonker, vice president of SMB product line management at NETGEAR, to discuss the trends that Richard has observed and what makes him not only hopeful but quite excited about the next year ahead.
In this podcast, Richard says that he expects more from Zoom’s beta features, such as 3d video conferencing and AR. He and Neil discuss how Snap Chat and Pokémon Go have helped to remove the barriers towards it. AR’s success is down to bandwidth, Richard explains, and NETGEAR is excited to contribute to resolving the issue of computing power on the edge.
“It’s one of the things that people have been craving, this internet bandwidth,” Richard says. We’re all familiar with those household arguments because someone is trying to work while another is studying, and another is gaming. “That doesn’t require a normal home network though; that requires a business-grade network.”
