Vodafone Qatar has equipped their employees with the tools needed to work remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mahday Saad Al Hebabi, Business Services Director, Vodafone Qatar, said Vodafone Qatar has empowered their employees to work from the safety of their own homes as part of their Business Continuity planning. Communication and connectivity – especially now when virtual connections are taking the place of face-to-face dialogue – have never been more important.
He said that many businesses have welcomed this chance to flex the backbone technologies they have in place, such as Unified Communications (UCs), Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and cloud capabilities, to enable remote working and studying.
Mahday Saad Al Hebabi added: “For our part, Vodafone Qatar is supporting our customers across all sectors to put the right technology in place. Vodafone IP-VPN lets workers connect to cloud apps via the office network, while our cloud services and co-location services offer the level of security they need. In turn, GigaHome and 5G MiFi hotspots lets individuals rely on our seamless connectivity to deliver on work and academic responsibilities in their homes.
“The coronavirus situation highlights the need to accelerate the development of technology infrastructure that supports alternative types of working and learning.”
