4 Remote Network Components to Support Remote and Hybrid Teams
Experts agree that even after the pandemic is just a bad memory, remote work will be a permanent part of the modern workforce. Some companies may have a completely remote workforce, while most companies will probably opt for a hybrid workforce. Either way, the challenge is going to be supporting the needs of workers, regardless of where they are located.
There are four remote network components that help accomplish that goal.
Your first task is to ensure that employees can easily access the applications they use and communicate with coworkers, customers, vendors, and other third parties. The network you use to connect your employees must work the same for those in your office and those working from a home office.
Software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) is becoming the most popular network solution for hybrid workforces. It helps you overcome the challenges of using an internet connection for critical business applications. You can increase your bandwidth with widely available and low-cost broadband and let the software that drives the network take care of routing traffic to leverage all your capacity.
With Momentum’s SD-WAN, hardware requirements are simplified, costs are decreased, and you can build a zero-trust network to improve cyber security. In addition, you’ll be working with an award-winning provider.

Traditional telephone systems can’t support today’s workforce. Cloud-based voice solutions can meet your voice needs while giving you more functionality, greater scalability, lower costs, and applications that can improve employee productivity.
Momentum’s Voice solutions are customizable and let you conduct video calls and integrate voice with unified communication systems. The network is geo-redundant to give you extreme reliability with measurable voice quality.
In today’s new workforce models, you need to focus on providing services to every user, regardless of the device they are using. Momentum Mobility lets desktop and smartphone users communicate with ease, whether they’re using desktop platforms like Windows and Mac or smartphones running iOS and Android.
Hybrid workforces don’t have the luxury of running to the office down the hall to get a question answered or to gather coworkers in a room for an impromptu meeting. The key to collaboration in a hybrid environment is using tools like web and audio conferencing along with voice capabilities.
For many companies, Microsoft Teams is their go-to collaboration tool. Momentum’s Voice-Enabled Microsoft Teams capability delivers a fresh user experience that incorporates voice into a Teams environment.
