Bringing the wonders of fibre to your estate

Residential Estate Security Handbook 2020 IT infrastructure

The Hi-Tech Security Solutions Residential Security Conference in Durban was a magnificent event where Vox showcased its visitor management solution. The response was overwhelming, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the Hi-Tech Security Solutions team and all the delegates who took time to engage with us.

To summarise, Vox has expanded the cloud-based visitor management solution to cater specifically for the needs of small multi-dwelling unit estates and large residential estates. This ‘guardless’ offering enables people to more securely control access into their complexes. To cater for the trying and tumultuous times we find ourselves in, we have extended the solution to incorporate various frictionless access control options.

Speaking of which, as the current times force more of us to work and study from home, it is essential to delve deeper into the capabilities of whether organisations can deliver on the requirements our new digitally driven environment requires. Vox prides itself as a leader in this space with our comprehensive approach built on the pillars of communication, access to information and connectivity, ensuring that all elements needed for people to work optimally from home are in place.

Underpinning this is the expected increase in demand for fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) installations. Employees need faster and more stable Internet connectivity if they are to be productive. To simplify the process, Vox is selling FTTH bundles directly to the corporation, meaning the company can provide fibre access to its employees, giving them a reliable foundation on which to access cloud-based solutions. Included in the offering is our Vox Vobi mobile softphone app which empowers users to make and receive calls from their mobile phones over the Vox network.

To complement this, Vox also provides complete managed IT support, so all the hardware needs of employees are taken care of when working from their home offices. Next on the list should be optimising productivity. The Microsoft 365 line of subscription services is a case in point. Apart from its original applications, it has recently added Microsoft Teams – an integrated collaboration platform that incorporates chat, video, and audio meetings, file storage, shared files, calendars and apps, and collaborative editing. Through these, Microsoft 365 delivers a comprehensive value proposition for the digital workforce. But this means little if its deployment is not done correctly.

Vox can assist in every step of the deployment and supplements that with extensive online training.

Remote working will be part of the new normal as the business landscape evolves. How prepared the organisation will be to deal with it is dependent on the steps it takes today.
