It’s no secret that the internet has become integral to running today’s businesses. However, you may not know about the tools that can complement your business internet to optimize performance and ensure smooth operations.
By some estimates, internet users create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. Much of this is generated by Internet of Things (IoT) devices. In fact, researchers are predicting that the global IoT end-user market will grow from $212 billion to $1.6 trillion between 2019 and 2025.
Businesses are increasingly turning to IoT technology for everything from managing supply chains and making driverless deliveries to tracking worker productivity and monitoring patient health virtually.
But as more organizations incorporate IoT into their business strategies, it’s important to look beyond simply connecting to the internet and consider the tools that can enhance the user experience and optimize operational efficiency.
Implementing Smart Business Internet Solutions
In this era of “smart” everything, businesses have the opportunity to combine technologies to create exceptional user experiences for customers and employees.
Here are five tools you should add to your smart business internet offerings:
Business Internet Backup
So many business functions are reliant on internet access, so an emergency internet backup plan is crucial.
Natural disasters, like typhoons, power fluctuations, and even human error can cause a power outage. To ensure your business stays connected and operational in a crisis, you need a reliable backup solution that is not only wireless but also utilizes high-speed internet.
There is a dichotomy in many of today’s workplaces: Our teams have never been more connected or more geographically distributed.
This new way of working relies on the cloud to support collaboration and productivity. Investing in a secure, cloud-based platform will allow team members to share important documents, access business applications, and communicate ideas easily and securely from any location.
Providing entertainment in lobbies and common areas is an easy way to improve the customer experience.
But you don’t have to settle for the cheapest, most basic option. A cost-effective, feature-rich solution like dTV+ lets you select and stream HD content or tune into local channels so visitors and customers can enjoy a variety of programming, including news, sports and even music.
The days of communicating solely by telephone are long gone. Today’s businesses must be accessible to clients and employees across multiple channels.

Automated Air Filtration
As employees begin returning to the office, it’s important to maintain a healthy work environment.
Installing an automated air filtration system such as Aura Air will reduce the risk of airborne illness. Aura Air uses smart sensors to constantly adjust and optimize performance, removing up to 99.9% of viruses, bacteria, and allergens in the air.
