Every minute counts in business and wireless networking is a powerful tool for boosting productivity and encouraging information sharing. With untethered access to documents, emails, applications and other network resources, employees can roam where they need to and have constant access to the tools required to do their jobs.
What is Wireless?
A wireless local area network (WLAN) uses radio waves to connect devices such as laptops, SmartPhones, and Tablets to the Internet and to your business network and its applications. When you connect a device to a Wi-Fi hotspot at a Cafe, Hotel, Airport Lounge, or other public places, you’re connecting to that business’s wireless network.
Why is Wireless (Wi-Fi) so useful and now been rolled out to many businesses?
- Convenience. Access your network resources from any location within your wireless network’s coverage area or from any Wi-Fi hotspot
- Mobility. You’re no longer tied to your desk, as you were with a wired connection. You and your employees can go online in conference room meetings, for example
- Productivity. Wireless access to the Internet and to your company’s key applications and resources helps your staff get the job done and encourages collaboration
- Easy setup. You don’t have to string cables, so installation can be quick and cost-effective
- Expandable. You can easily expand wireless networks with existing equipment, while a wired network might require additional wiring
