How Edge Devices can shape future work environment in the post pandemic era?
The world is changing, the business operation is changing, and the method of work is changing for many people amid the storm of the coronavirus. A question is, will people and corporation resume the old ways (“the good olde days”) once crisis is over? At the beginning, the corporations and people were struggling to cope with these changes; however, it is likely that a “new norm” will be formed after three or four months’ chaotic operations. Regardless how companies are coping with these changes, the term “remote” seems to be the magic word for individuals to develop new routines to maintain “social distancing” and comply with the “shelter in place” city ordinances.
We can probably find a silver lining in the cloud through new Edge Devices, though. In order to have this "remote operation mode" to be more tolerable and efficient, new edge devices such as glasses with Intelligent AR capability and advanced multimedia web-meeting consoles, will certainly change the practices on shopping from home (go to a “virtual Mall”) and working from home especially when these can be supported by reliable adequate last-mile connectivity.
