What are the benefits of wireless networks?
For modern businesses, it’s essential to be able to operate with agility. A wireless network is a powerful tool that increases the speed and performance of connections between your employees. They have a number of key business advantages over wired networks.
Increased efficiency and mobility
Users can remain online even when switching between wireless-enabled devices, e.g., from laptop to mobile device they remain connected.
Access from anywhere
Wireless networks enable your users to securely access real-time information from anywhere, anytime, on any device.
Even though the initial investment is higher, the total cost of ownership over time is lower.
Offer secure network access to guest users such as, customers or business partners, while keeping your network applications and resources protected.
Expandability and scalability
Easily update your wireless network to meet new configurations and scale up or down as business needs change.
Installation is quick and simple
With minimal hardware and no wires or cables, wireless networks are easy to install and can be set up in a fraction of the time.
Wired vs wireless network infrastructure
As the name suggests, wireless and wired networks differ in how the user’s device connects to the corporate network. In a wired network, information and data flows through cables. The cables connect to an Ethernet port on the network switch or router at one end, and to an interface card in the end device at the other end.
In a wireless network, information and data flows via radio waves. These signals travel between the end device and the wireless access point, which is connected to the network. This enables users to move, untethered to cables or wires. A wireless network is not completely cloud-based, it still requires hardware components such as switches, to support the wireless access points.
