Harnham launch their new wimbledon office | Harnham Recruitment post
Harnham, the world’s biggest Data and Analytics recruitment business has launched its new state of the art Wimbledon headquarters. David Farmer, Senior Partner of Harnham was joined by Ann Swain, CEO of APSCo to officially open the sales floor and bring in an exciting new chapter to Harnham’s story.”This is a very important day for Harnham. I’ve seen this organisation flourish over recent years and to see David and the team move into this fantastic space is befitting of their skill and dedication to both the recruitment and data industries,” said Ann.With capacity to grow headcount in the new Wimbledon office from 65 to 100, Harnham have set the foundations for significant growth across their UK and European markets. Outside of Europe Harnham have two established offices in San Francisco and New York. David comments that the Wimbledon office will act as the blueprint for future international expansion. “Harnham has seen positive year on year growth which has triggered our UK expansion and we expect to be at 130 staff globally by the end of the year, but this is just the start. We have just begun our growth strategy in our New York and San Francisco offices which will triple headcount in the US over the next two years”.
The fully renovated space was designed and built by local office build company ODB Group. The office combines cutting edge open plan design with integrated technology all set against an innovative and exciting brand that has been core to Harnham’s success. Learning & Development will remain key to Harnham’s growth strategy so two purpose-built training rooms have been constructed. The result is an environment that promotes Harnham’s culture of collaboration and support whilst using technology to aid productivity.Keeping their head office in Wimbledon will also help ensure Harnham retains its unique culture in a period of growth. Since the company opened in 2006, Harnham’s headquarters have been based in several offices all within a few hundred yards of Wimbledon Station. This has allowed the business to weave itself into the fabric of the town supporting local businesses and charities such as the Wimbledon Foodbank where every employee spent a day working over the festive period. October 2017 was a particular highlight as Harnham was awarded ‘Employer of the Year’ and ‘Best Enterprising Business’ at the Merton Business Awards.
Could Mobile Gaming Help Us Solve Real World Problems? | Harnham US Recruitment post
From Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar’s Twitch play Among Us to Fortnite helping kids get into college, the mobile gaming industry has leapt into the new decade with gusto. It doesn’t hurt to have a few well-known names behind it, too. But it’s what AOC and Oman accomplished -normalcy – that begs the question. Could mobile gaming help us solve real world problems? A Cultural Beginning Cultural institutions, such as museums, have had a rough go of it this year. But innovation, creativity, and collaboration have come together to offer opportunities to get a bird’s eye view of the art world. Whether you play Occupy White Walls to create your own gallery bring real art into your gaming world through the Getty Museum and Nintendo’s Animal Crossing collaboration.Just a few ways these could be jumping off points to discussion for problem-solving include:Opportunities abound to host audiences from around the world without a head count capA chat function to discuss what you see, what you like, what you don’t, and what you’d like to seeCultural institutions become more open allowing anyone and everyone into its virtual wallsPerhaps even simulations and to imagine what-if scenarios for the rest of usGames could host exhibitions such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium of California who’s partnered with Animal Crossing and a fossil expert form the Field Museum in Chicago who hosts virtual tours through TwitchGames give us the opportunity to imagine what’s possible. And these games are bringing real life events and activities straight to your fingertips in mobile gaming.Ad-Tech and Analytics are In the GameSince social distancing has become the norm, gaming has exploded. Once all the numbers are in, mobile game downloads are expected to see a nearly 40% increase in 2020 from 2019.No business who sees the potential here is standing by, the least of which is advertising. If you remember cable TV or maybe still have one, the free channels were often supported by commercials. In some television shows, products were given strategic placement. Okay, so it’s probably still happening today, but now we’re used to it.Skip ahead a few generations. Hello, Ready Player One fans, and advertisers have a new platform. Or at least, they’re working on it. There are still a few kinks to work out. Some game developers are designing games to help allow advertisers to fit seamlessly into games. The audience of one engagement of TV has moved to a community engagement of many in the gaming world. Over two and half billion people are gamers across demographics of age and location. Social media still has the highest ad buys from television, but gaming is quickly catching up. As advertisers and businesses get in the game, it’s estimated there will be a monumental shift in the collective.Games have always served as a device to teach. Chess and checkers teach strategy. Monopoly teaches business and banking. Life teaches us to follow different paths and see what happens (not so different from Second Life). So, what could games teach us now with its ever increasing role in bringing groups together for engagement, community, and discussion?What role will you play in the coming year?If you’re interested in Data & Analytics, Harnham may have a role for you.

What’s Ahead for 6G: What You Need to Know
The world of technology never ceases to amaze us while advancing every other year. And we’re on it again – the sixth-generation cellular network is already creating a buzz among tech industry leaders, governments, and headlines. Of course, 6G’s predecessor, 5G, is only at the initial stages of being rolled out in most parts of the world. So, why is the industry talking about 6G this fast, considering that 5G (the fastest wireless network to date) implementation is still new? This article explores just that.
6G is a cellular technology that could provide faster speeds and low latency wireless communications. It would use ultra-high frequencies to achieve this. 5G development saw the introduction of millimeter waves (MM), but 6G will further explore the use of waves with a wavelength less than a millimeter and frequencies of up to 1 THz compared to about 95 GHz used in 5G technology.
How Does 6G Differ from 5G?
Previously, we’ve talked about how 5G will transform smart cities, autonomous cars, decentralized networks (e.g., blockchain), and drones. With speeds of up to 1 Tbps and latency of less than a microsecond, 6G will enhance these applications in addition to revolutionizing communications, Virtual Reality (VR), and AI. Mobile edge computing (MEC) will also be much more seamless with 6G deployment. Another reason why 6G is everyone’s hype is its ability to send and receive frequencies at the same time without the need to split channels, as in 5G.
When to Expect a Functional 6G Wireless Network
The sixth-generation cellular technology is way away in years. We can expect the rollout for commercial use late this decade. Massive deployment may not happen until at least 2020. The infrastructure, electronics, and standards for 6G are yet to be defined or even invented. Nevertheless, various tech-savvy companies and government agencies have started research. Many of them are investing millions of dollars towards the same.
Who is on it?
Earlier in October 2020, a Washington-based group known as the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions formed a “Next G Alliance”. Companies such as AT&T, Facebook, T-Mobile, Qualcomm, US Inc., and South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics are part of the alliance which aims to advance research and rollout of 6G.
Another name for the 6G development is Optipulse. According to the company, they are using a miniature chip, which is much faster at sending wireless data than 5G RF emitters. Optipulse has so far tested this technology and proven it to work up to 25 Gbps error-free.
The creator of massive MIMO, Tom Marzetta, currently works as the director of NYU Wireless. He is shaping the firm towards innovating the infrastructure needed for 6G. While acknowledging various design challenges, Tom is steering 6G research at NYU wireless. “We’re doing both experimental and theoretical 6G research.” He says that they’re working on the terahertz spectrum, which has a wavelength equal to one-tenth of that of a 5G millimeter wave.
Future for 6G
Remember that about a decade ago when B4G (Beyond 4G) was a common phrase? These were the initial stages of research on 5G. Today, you can now easily buy a 5G mobile phone, though it seemed mind-blowing then. We can view the B5G with the same lens in that we’re still at the early research work on 6G.
However, there are challenges ahead. Inventing semiconductors that process data at that frequency will prove challenging. Also, there are concerns about sub-millimeter waves. These include being tampered with or obstructed by water molecules in the atmosphere.
Can you imagine downloading 142 hours of Netflix movies in a matter of seconds? 6G has the potential to reach such unparalleled speeds.
