Discover how a POYNTING antenna boosted home office productivity for a POYNTING employee with reliable and high-speed internet connectivity. The solution helped to eliminate buffering during virtual meetings, as Yolande discovered first-hand.
In today’s world, working from home has become increasingly common. However, one of the biggest challenges for remote workers is to have a reliable internet connection. Poor connectivity can disrupt virtual meetings, hinder productivity and can be a major source of frustration. This is where a POYNTING antenna that improves your broadband signal in homes, can help.One such example is Yolande Rautenbach, a key employee at POYNTING, who faced similar issues. Yolande follows a hybrid work model where she works from home most days of the week. Her residence in Elarduspark, Pretoria, South Africa, had poor signal and connectivity, making it difficult for her to work efficiently
She was relying on a small dongle (Vodafone R207 3G Mobile WiFi Hotspot) to connect to Vodacom. As the saying goes, “the shoemaker’s children go barefoot,” Yolande did not have a decent router or antenna. After a frustrating day of disastrous meetings, Yolande decided to get a POYNTING antenna installed.
By moving the antenna outdoors, there will be a significant improvement in signal strength. Outdoor antennas have a much better line of sight to the cellular tower, and therefore can receive stronger signals. Additionally, outdoor antennas are not subjected to interference from walls or other obstructions, which can degrade the signal quality.
IntetoConnect (our partner in South Africa) arranged for an installation team to install a HUAWEI B535-933 Router and an XPOL-6 antenna. Mogomotsi Malatji and the team from Re-Atlegile Services completed a neat and professional installation in less than 2 hours!
The installation of these devices led to an impressive improvement in signal connectivity for Yolande. She went from 4.75 Mbps download speed with the dongle to an impressive 121.37 Mbps download speed with the HUAWEI router and outdoor POYNTING antenna. The difference was astounding.
No longer does she have to struggle with buffering during virtual meetings or face the frustration of lost connectivity. With a POYNTING solution, she can now work efficiently and productively from home. This is a testament to the effectiveness of POYNTING Antenna’s technology and the importance of having a reliable internet connection, especially for remote workers.
