 Finally, we are seeing the marriage between voice and data. The surge in online conferencing solutions (10x in the pandemic) has fundamentally changed the way we work. We discuss basic features and functionality of different online conferencing solutions; security and the panel will share real world MSP experiences in the communications revolution. Also expect this lecture to almost be a capstone that integrates the leadership, security, devices and productivity/collaboration “legs of the remote worker stool” as a communication infrastructure foundation.

The coronavirus COVID-19 matter is possibly the ultimate Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scenario (in many cases). In this panel discussion, we review the role of BYOD in terms of reliability, quality assurance and productivity.

Next we visit with a not-for-profit about where to recycle and redeploy all of the used computer equipment that is caused both by a refresh and literally a quick trip to your business mini-storage (and that of your clients) to gather surplus equipment to re-deploy to those in need in a kind way!

Bonus – we will do some geeking such as what is the proper way to implement a Remote Management and Monitoring tool to make your support for remote workers possible?
