5G, the next generation of cell networks, is set to launch in the US this year, and it promises to make remote work much easier. With speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G and designed to accommodate more devices than ever before, the network may make it feasible to work from any place there is a signal.

FREMONT, CA: Remote work is now more practical and popular than ever before, thanks to new technologies and devices. Around 70 percent of the world's professionals now work at least some of the time remotely, with some even going so far as to become digital nomads, living an on-the-go working lifestyle with no fixed residence. On the other hand, remote technologies are unknowingly being adopted by static, office-bound teams, exposing more firms to a distributed future. Here are six distant technologies that are changing the way we operate that one should look into.

5G

5G, the next generation of cell networks, is set to launch in the US this year, and it promises to make remote work much easier. With speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G and designed to accommodate more devices than ever before, the network may make it feasible to work from any place there is a signal.

A fast, consistent connection is essential for remote working, especially with CPU-intensive video communication tools. Whereas distant work locations were previously limited by Wi-Fi or ethernet connectivity, 5G will help to extend prospective employment sites, creating additional chances for distributed working.

VR and IM Communication

Video conferencing solutions like Zoom, as well as corporate instant message programs like Slack and Twist, are assisting in the remonetization of ordinary team collaboration. They provide a low-cost, simple option for dispersed teams wishing to simulate an in-person synchronous experience.

Virtual reality has already shown promise in taking this to the next level. While many VR meeting solutions are still in development, they give a good picture of how virtualized meeting rooms might look. VR is set to be a strong new advancement for fully remote company teams searching for a more personal and authentic conference call experience.
