The Vision for the Home Office of the Future

With home and hybrid working becoming the norm for SMBs, in Episode 2 of Switched On Thinking, NETGEAR’s Product Line Manager Doug Cheung joins our host Neil C Hughes to explore the ins and outs of…

  • What the future of the home office will look like
  • The Work-Life Boundary
  • Working from home securely and safely
  • The magic of WiFi and creating a seamlessly connected world
  • Empowering employees and businesses to boost productivity

Productivity, Security, and Education from the Home Office of the Future

Episode 2’s topics include the importance of what Doug calls the “work-life boundary,” and the importance of separating work from home, both in terms of life and WiFi network efficiency.

Security is also a major topic, highlighting the importance of robust protections against cyber-criminals, which are increasingly targeting home workers as the weakest point of entry into corporate networks.

“As workforces transform from office to home or hybrid working models, we need to look at the speed, efficiency, and security of our home networks, and create clear boundaries between home and work, both in terms of life and how we implement WiFi technology,” said Cheung. “At NETGEAR, our aim is to make all WiFi-connected technology work together to fundamentally improve productivity, communication efficiency, and ultimately make employees happier. I thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to discuss these important topics on the podcast with Neil.”

Doug doesn’t just touch on working from home during his chat with Neil; he also discusses the importance of how an improved WiFi solution can benefit education at home. Finally, Doug looks towards the future of WiFi and wireless communications including WiFi 6 and 5G, and how NETGEAR is at the forefront of creating a world that is seamlessly connected.

Now more than ever, working from home is the norm, and establishing the ‘work-life boundary’ that Doug references is a challenge we all face. Have you segmented a little of your WiFi just for work purposes to ensure you can video conference without interruption? Listen to the show for more ways to better manage your WiFi and keep it secure.
