Intelligent office members in the Tysons, Reston, and Arlington areas are in for an extreme Internet upgrade. 100mbps dedicated symmetrical fiber Internet is now available! With the upgrade, Internet speed, efficiency, reliability, and overall capabilities will improve drastically.
Gone are the days of slow and unreliable Internet connection. Intelligent Office’s upgraded Internet will increase productivity and pace, along with general workplace morale.
What is 100mbps dedicated symmetrical fiber Internet?
At 100mbps high-speed data transfer, the upgraded Internet is designed to support larger numbers of simultaneous users where access to the Internet is mission critical. Unlike broadband, which is shared bandwidth; a dedicated fiber circuit comes from the ISP backbone directly into Intelligent Office locations. Since the bandwidth is no longer being shared with other users, reliability is enhanced and speeds are much more consistent.Symmetrical Internet refers to identical connection and speed for downloading and uploading information (100/100mbps). This ensures better video quality, smoother Skype sessions, and faster file uploading, among other things. Cooper transport is the most common way to deliver Internet. Telephone lines or cable connections are less reliable and not as scalable as fiber based Internet. While fiber may be more expensive, its advantages for businesses and first-class service make it the medium of choice for Intelligent Office. 100mbps dedicated symmetrical fiber Internet will be an extremely beneficial upgrade for Intelligent Office workers.
To learn more about the new Internet upgrade or to rent office space in our Tysons, Reston, or Arlington locations, call Intelligent Office today.

The virtual workplace is now more the norm than the exception. Technology such as Skype and GoToMeeting and free conference calls allows employers to provide workers with a flexible schedule where they don't all have to be under the same roof.
For the employee, the virtual work life creates room for a better work-life balance. For the employer, it broadens the pool of qualified employees since location is no longer a hindrance or a cost factor when hiring for a position. If that person is the right person for the job, then working remotely could be the perfect fit.

The idea that the office is a specific place where our professional lives happen is becoming less universal, and less important. These days many knowledge workers can be productive anywhere, thanks to smarter, more numerous mobile devices, faster network access, and a growing number of online collaboration tools. Telecommuting is no longer merely something that the phone company is trying to sell you. And wherever the office may be, wider and better use of social networks, data analytics, and smart technologies such as voice recognition could be poised to increase productivity dramatically—meaning that both real and virtual offices may have fewer people in them.
Virtual offices continue to prove themselves as models of efficiency in the workplace. Employers are finding that virtual offices offer both expected and unexpected cost savings to the bottom line, while allowing valued employees the flexibility they want and need for a healthy life and work balance.
1. You need to improve your professional image
You’re on a shoestring budget, you haven’t got an established client list yet, and you’re operating out of your spare bedroom. But a few small details can actually help you to project a professional image – and getting the right business address is one of them.
Renting a virtual office means you won’t need to have your business correspondence sent to 53 Suburbia Avenue. And you can keep it a secret that you’re working in your PJs from the comfort of your spare room.
There will come a time in your business when you feel plagued with the never ending amount of tasks and projects required to successfully operate your company. In a state of overwhelm, there is simply too much for one person to achieve while remaining efficient, effective and balanced. You may find that you have numerous responsibilities to complete but not enough hours in the day.
A number of experts give us insight into whether or not the concept of working remotely has been a success and where problems have arisen.
Four reasons why you don't need to spend on setting up a traditional office to recruit staff.
If you're taking on more work than you can handle as a sole trader, one of the biggest costs involved in starting up a business is that of setting up an office.
But now you don't need to. With rental fees for office space as well as the equipment for employees – not to mention the expense of paying the bills – it might make sense to implement a virtual office.
