Frontier® BYOD Solutions
Control costs & maximize productivity while keeping your company data safe
BYOD in the Work Environment
As employees increasingly use their own mobile devices to access work-related emails, spreadsheets, and other company files, they are driving the need for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) solutions. In fact, the number of employee-owned smartphones and tablets used in the workplace has reached 350 million.
Establishing an effective Wi-Fi and BYOD policy requires businesses to focus on bandwidth needs and security concerns without hindering employee productivity and customer satisfaction. In addition to convenience, there are several benefits to a BYOD-enabled workplace.
- Enhanced productivity with easier access and increased bandwidth
- Higher sales revenues due to greater network reliability
- Reduced technology costs and need for IT support services
BYOD by Industry
- Health Care
BYOD has become an integral part of the health care industry. With Frontier's scalable, affordable solutions, medical professionals can more effectively monitor patients and provide higher quality care with EMS mobility, telemedicine, and multiple wireless data diagnostic and real-time critical care monitoring applications. Hospitals and other medical facilities can ensure HIPAA compliance while also providing patients and visitors access to guest networks.
In today's retail spaces, employers understand the connection between BYOD and employee productivity and customer satisfaction. Shoppers are empowered by using their smartphones and iPads in-store to check prices, read product reviews, and purchase items online. Employees use mobile devices to handle business tasks, communicate with management, and conduct point-of-sale transactions.
The BYOD trend facilitates collaboration and interactivity in classrooms everywhere, increasing student engagement and contributing to a better overall learning experience. Students use their own laptops, smartphones, and tablets to conduct research, collaborate on assignments, take notes, and more. Frontier's Managed Wi-Fi solution supports online learning, telepresence, and SMART boards. While educators and students are using personal mobile devices, schools are controlling technology costs.
State and local government agencies and public safety organizations are reducing capital and operational costs—and saving taxpayer dollars—with the implementation of BYOD and Wi-Fi connectivity. With Frontier's secure, scalable solutions, government employees can use their own mobile devices to maximize productivity and more efficiently respond to requests.
