Cloud-computing giants and phone companies have decided they need each other to drive the market for 5G business services.
Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Corp. have all signed partnerships with telcos in recent months as they seek new opportunities amid slowing growth in demand for data storage. Telcos, including AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., are also looking to revive flagging revenue while tapping into cloud computing's ability to make super-fast 5G networks more efficient and cheaper to run.
"The cloud companies need to reinvent themselves," said Omdia analyst Vlad Galabov.
"Communications service providers have the same thing — everyone has a mobile phone, a network — so both have saturation."
The parties are working together to bring computing functions such as data processing onto the 5G network, closer to where data is generated. This system, known as multi-access edge computing, or MEC, enables partners to offer enterprise services such as real-time analytics, manufacturing automation and live product tracking.
Teaming up is a great strategy right now in all industries. If you're needing a solid telecommunications partner to work with in your business, we are excited to collaborate!

Have you noticed how it seems like your phone and online platforms are reading your mind? Every click and view is providing information to Artificial Intelligence, that's not really "mind" reading, but rather, it's reading through "mined" data to predict if you need food delivered to your office right now, or if you're ready to buy that new espresso maker.
Technology has barely scratched the surface of what is to come in intuiting what your customers need before they even know they need it.
Review your company's first impression online and through the phone--are you making it easy for customers to get their needs met? We can help.

Workplace rules and expectations have made a huge shift in the last few years. As your team ventures back into the workplace, now is a good time to review if a BYOD policy is the best option for your company!
Workplace rules and expectations have made a huge shift in the last few years. As your team ventures back into the workplace, now is a good time to review if BYOD is the best way to do it.
As we explore BYOD policies, keep in mind that Bring Your Own Device refers to laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Any wifi or cellular enabled device used for work will fall into this discussion.
Studies indicate that your team will see an increase in productivity when using their own devices on the job. There's something about having all the settings and preferences right at your fingertips, and even that friendly wallpaper of your cat, to speed up tedious tasks.
Employees also share that their job satisfaction increases, and that means they stick around at their favorite job for longer. Unifying communications into one phone (instead of a work phone, cell phone, home phone) reduces stress and increases productivity!
For Employers, enjoy a decrease in costs for providing hardware: computers, phones, etc. We recommend using apps like RingCentral, Teams or any other VOIP provider for employee work phone calls and communication.
Be prepared for the disadvantages of BYOD:
At Simplified Communications, we strive to find ways to simplify your workplace. BYOD is one solution to consider! Need help implementing a BYOD culture?

Today will be remembered as the day the internet broke -- before swiftly being fixed again. On Tuesday morning, websites including Amazon, Reddit, Spotify, Ebay, Twitch, Pinterest and, unfortunately, CNET went offline due to a major outage at a service called Fastly. Everywhere you looked, there were 503 errors and people complaining they couldn't access key services and news outlets, demonstrating just how much of the internet relies on this largely unheard-of cloud computing service.
At around 2:58 a.m. PT, Fastly's status update page noted an error, saying "we're currently investigating potential impact to performance with our CDN [content delivery network] services." Shortly thereafter, reports emerged on Twitter of major news publications including the BBC, CNN and The New York Times being offline. Twitter itself was still running, although the server that hosted its emojis went down, leading to some odd-looking tweets.
