Advantages of WiFi-Wireless Fidelity for Business Offices

– WiFi (an abbreviation of Wireless Fidelity) and wireline networks are not as you would guess; opposites in tech, but rather work together to enhance business communications.  In 2016 Boulder Phone wants to make sure you have the best choices, improved services, and cutting edge technologies that increase your profits, reduce your costs, and improve business results across your company.  Here are some thoughts we have to help you with business WiFi:

WiFi Access Point

WiFi Access Point

Convenience
– WiFi allows users to roam the business and access network resources from nearly anywhere.  WiFi connects computers, video, security devices, mobile phones and many other devices across the workplace.  With the increasing saturation of laptop-style computers and mobile phones, this is particularly relevant as controlled guest access is simple to manage.
Mobility
– With the emergence of public WiFi networks, users can access the internet outside their normal work environment. Most chain coffee shops, for example, offer their customers a WiFi connection to the internet at little or no cost.
Productivity
– For a business, this implies that everyone can be more productive and focus on the assigned task regardless of location.  Users connected to WiFi maintain a wide range of speeds as they move from place to place. With increased bandwidth and the right tools on the Internet, staff can collaborate and be engaged much more quickly.
Deployment
– The installation of WiFi requires little more than a single access point (AP) or antenna connected via a data cable to the business router/switch. Using power over ethernet (PoE) eliminates the need for an associated power plug.  WiFI networks can scale rapidly for growing businesses, disasters, temp work space and other business conditions without additional wiring, conduit and other issues.
One of the advantages of combined WiFi and wired cable networks is the coverage they offer across the business premises.  A combo-WiFi-wire network allows a business to move walls, desks, users, printers, video and other devices at a reduced cost (depending on what you do).
Need for Speed
– The speed on most wireless networks (typically 1-54 Mbps) is usually less than wired networks (100Mbps up to several gigabits per second (Gbps)). However, with combo WiFi and wireline networks you can get whatever speed you need whenever you need it.
Cost
– WiFi cost/benefit weighs wireline cabling and endpoint costs against WiFi AP and associated endpoint costs (e.g. wireless camers vs. wired cameras) WiFi and wireline cabling work well together to help you grow, change and adapt your business, bandwidth, and office conditions at an effective price point.  Each alone has its benefits and challenges, however combo-WiFi and wireline networks give you the best of all business communication now and in the future.
