How digitally savvy would you say your office is? We understand how busy things can get when you’re running a small business. So, every little bit of extra help you can get will always go a long way.
Agency life is just, different. At any given moment, you might see a copywriter or art director in the wild, riding a bike or skateboard while simultaneously chatting about their next deadline. If you were to stop by for a visit or to say hello, you could be greeted by the President or possibly a German Shepard.” You just never know. This and other things like agency wide meetings with tacos and the occasional Ping-Pong championship bracket all makes advertising life – unique. But what makes advertising very similar to other businesses is their need for reliable technology and Internet.
2020 is a time for technology & innovation. New and emerging technology trends have the capacity to change our lives, improving the way we live, work and even do business.
Our Cincinnati Bell team recently attended the CES Conference, an annual trade show organized by the Consumer Technology Association, where we got an inside look at the emerging technology for the upcoming year.
What exactly is Fiber Optic Technology?
Fiber optic technology is the future of communications. When we talk about “fiber”, envision it as plastic smaller than a human hair or strand of glass in which data can be transmitted through light waves. Each individual stand of fiber is capable of transferring thousands of phone calls and emails simultaneously. Bundle them together into a fiber cable and that capacity skyrockets into the millions. Considering the traditional copper cables found in most homes and businesses are only capable of providing a fraction of this bandwidth, it’s not hard to see why everyone is insisting on fiber.
No matter what business you are in, connectivity is crucial to how you get things done, communicate to your customers and market your business. As a small-business owner, choosing a good Internet speed is essential for everyday tasks like downloading files, uploading data, operating point of sales systems, and video conferencing. It’s important to ensure you have the fastest Internet speed to keep your business running seamlessly. To ensure the seamless connection, you need to make sure your bandwidth & Internet are being utilized properly and there are no underlying issues.
Your business’s LinkedIn profile can be a first impression in the professional world, so it’s important that it is always up-to-date and represents your small business both personally and professionally. Whether it’s using a picture to show your creative side or constructing a headline that perfectly illustrates your image, your LinkedIn can show off your company’s brand personality.

What is Smart City? Imagine a city where all children have equal access to Internet resources to learn, where adults can access online job training and other necessary resources. A city where everyone is connected to the safety and health resources that can improve quality of life. Cincinnati Bell has implemented a variety of Smart City initiatives to bring free Wi-Fi to cities, venues, and campuses. While each opportunity is different, the process is similar. Build a foundation of fiber and Wi-Fi, then prioritize and implement the Smart City technologies critical to those needs.
