Last August, Cincinnati Bell and the Oregon District Business Association announced that Cincinnati Bell and multiple partners donated the upfront investments to deploy Smart City Solutions in the Oregon District. Cincinnati Bell Technicians have been installing fiber to provide free public Wi-Fi, as well as analytics and engagement software to support local businesses and drive economic development.
The City of Wyoming is proud to announce a partnership with Cincinnati Bell to realize a “Smart City” vision and bring free public Wi-Fi to Wyoming as part of a broader effort to ignite economic growth. In partnership with Wyoming, Cincinnati Bell has installed a Smart City solution with Wi-Fi coverage in the central business district, the village green, and Crescent Park. The community may log on through a splash page at “Wyoming Free Wi-Fi.” This economic development project will allow Wyoming to connect with, engage, and inform visitors and residents; drive more activity and visits; and ultimately help the local business community thrive. Wyoming is the first small city in Hamilton County to implement a Smart City solution. The City is partnering with Cincinnati Bell, which has implemented other Smart City solutions in the region and has invested approximately $1 billion into its Greater Cincinnati fiber network. Cincinnati Bell will leverage this unique expertise to help the City of Wyoming Smart City vision.
Security and technology are now more important than ever to support a remote business. Having those two key roles working together is critical to mobilize a work-from-home plan. Constant communication, strategic planning, and prioritization are needed to keep your business functional. As we have started to get used to our new normal working through this pandemic, here are a few things to keep in mind to mitigate security risk and become fully functional when remote.
We are all in this together. As individuals, families, and businesses have all had to adjust quickly and cope with the effects of Covid-19, the impact has been hard on our world and community, to say the least. Essentially, life as we know it has changed dramatically in less than a month’s time, making it nearly impossible to find one individual in our community that has not been impacted. At Cincinnati Bell, we want you to know that we’re here for you and are working hard to find ways to help.
The “office” environment has changed dramatically in a very short time due to COVID-19. Most businesses had to quickly adapt to shifting their workforce immediately and have their employees start working remotely. With such a sudden change, this left many businesses asking themselves if their employees have the right tools to stay productive while remote.
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.
