On collaboration’s demand on the network and how partners to capitalize on these new customer needs
[Collaboration] does create a network need. We’ve seen customers really begin to ramp their Wi-Fi 6 infrastructures. I think a big opportunity for our partners is this next generation Wi-Fi 6 and candidly, helping rationalize between what are the private 5G use cases and where Wi-Fi 6 the best solution. That’s where partners can play a big role.
Secondly, it’s every conference room is going to have to be equipped with high-end video conferencing. That’s an opportunity, particularly when you look at the safety features that we can have as we return to work, where these things can sense how many people are in a room and can actually provide alerts around social distancing requirements in a given conference room. Those kinds of things are super important.
I think as people go back to the office, the other opportunity we’re going to see is that as the Wi-Fi 6 networks begin to get loaded with traffic, it’s going to put a load on the underlying switching infrastructure in a campus that is supporting all that Wi-Fi traffic. We think that’ll be the next phase that’ll be an opportunity for our partners. And clearly, that’s all balanced with all companies trying to rationalize and think through what their footprint going to look like as you try to deal with this new hybrid work model.
