Suddenly, Zoom is easy, isn’t it?
Because it’s easy, I think that if it can be used anywhere, it will expand further.
First of all, the system environment required to use Zoom again is as follows.
- Internet connection-wired or wireless broadband (3G or 4G / LTE)
- Speakers and Microphones-Built-in, USB Plugin, or Wireless Bluetooth
- Webcam or HD webcam-Built-in or USB plug-in
or HD cam or HD camcorder with video capture card
So, you can see that you can have a Zoom meeting anywhere if you have a laptop and an internet environment.
Regarding the PC, if it is the current PC specifications, it will work without problems.
So what’s the problem here?
Yes, there is not always an internet environment in that place.
Internet environment for using Zoom
So what kind of internet environment do you need to use Zoom?
The official website of Zoom says as follows.
- For one-on-one video calls: 600 kbps (up / down) for high-quality video, 1.2 Mbps (up / down) for HD video
- For group video calls: 600kbps / 1.2Mbps for high quality video (up / down) For gallery view: 1.5Mbps / 1.5Mbps (up / down)
- For screen sharing only (no video thumbnails): 50-75kbps
- For screen sharing with video thumbnails: 50-150kbps
- For Audio VoiP: 60-80kbps
I’m sure there are many people who don’t understand even if they show this much, but in reality, the hurdles for the Internet environment required for Zoom are not that high.
Zoom works without any problems even if you use the carrier’s mobile device for tethering or pocket Wi-Fi.
If you don’t have Wi-Fi on site, you’ll be using these options.
Meeting anywhere with pocket Wi-Fi
I mentioned earlier that you have the option of tethering or pocket Wi-Fi on your mobile device, but my personal recommendation is to have a portable and unlimited pocket Wi-Fi.
Now, even if you can use it as much as you want, the price is much cheaper.
If you subscribe to WiMAX or other pocket Wi-Fi, you can use it for about 3,000 yen (monthly).
Recommended Wi-Fi environment
My personal recommendation is ” Wi-Fi at any time “.
By the way, the main thing I use right now is Wi-Fi at all times.
Now that Jiro Sato is appointed to do a TV commercial, some of you may have heard of it.
At any given time, Wi-Fi has the following features:
The benefits of Wi-Fi at any time
- There is really no communication limit ← Important here
- Necessary and sufficient speed
- Monthly fee is cheap * 3,480 yen (excluding tax) ~
- Wider coverage area
The benefits are very easy to understand.
There are no communication restrictions.
WiMAX, which is famous, is said to have unlimited communication, but in reality, if you use 10GB or more in 3 days, communication restrictions will be applied during times when it is easy to get crowded.
When I took WiMAX for a family trip, the communication was restricted the next night. Lol
In other words, it is not strictly unlimited and unlimited.
However, there are no communication restrictions on Wi-Fi at any time.
I actually had a meeting on youtube and Zoom and tried to use about 5GB in a day for several days, but there are no particular restrictions.
And at that time, I saw a lot of youtube, but it was a speed that I did not feel stress.
And it’s a charge.
This isn’t that much different from other companies, but it’s always good to have Wi-Fi tied up for two years, which is shorter than WiMAX’s three years (and communication charges increase in the third year).
However, as with other companies, the price will increase after the discount period, so I think it is best to cancel and re-contract in the two-year contract renewal month.
Disadvantages of Wi-Fi at any time
- It’s a little difficult to understand because the rental device doesn’t have an LCD screen.
- Not as fast as WiMAX
- Since there are almost no choices of equipment, the terminal is a little large
- Equipment is rented only and must be returned when canceled
Speaking of disadvantages, it looks like this.
Personally, I don’t think there is any problem in using it.
The LCD screen should be there at the time of the first setting, and you don’t have to worry about the amount of communication, so you don’t have to worry about how much G is left.
That’s why even if there is a liquid crystal, I rarely see it.
In terms of speed, Wi-Fi has a maximum downlink speed of 150 Mbps and a maximum uplink speed of 50 Mbps.
This is a bit slower than WiMAX, but it’s not a problem for normal use.
Wi-Fi uses cloud SIM at all times.
The feature of cloud SIM is that it is not necessary to insert a SIM card into the main body, and Wi-Fi will always connect to the optimum LTE line from the major carriers (docomo, au, Softbank). That you are.
Therefore, the communication speed is inferior to WiMAX.
But there are also good things.
Since it uses the communication lines of major carriers, it can be used in a wider range than WiMAX.
You may like or dislike returning the device.
People who are fragile should be careful.
If you have already subscribed to Pocket Wi-Fi and are using it, you may be familiar with the freedom when you are released from the carrier’s communication restrictions.
At any time I introduced, you can use the communication network of 3 carriers with Wi-Fi, so can you communicate a little? Even if you plan to go to a suspicious area, it’s nice to be able to bring it with relative peace of mind.
In addition, there are no communication restrictions for individuals who are doing business, so depending on the form of the office, you can do heavy work all day without worrying about communication charges without having to draw a fixed internet line.
Exactly at any time.
If you can start a business with Zoom, you want to do work regardless of location.
Bring your laptop and get the best performance in an environment where you can easily work.
