Here are 3 Benefits of Having a Powerful Wireless Network
The average technology user finds wireless connectivity practically a necessity. The second the Wi-Fi drops out and is unusable, panic ensues. The same can be said for any business that relies on it. In particular, organizations that depend on wireless connectivity can’t even function without it. We’ll walk you through ways your organization can benefit from a strong wireless network.
A More Flexible Workplace
Think about the devices that your organization uses to get most of its work done. The offices of yesteryear may have needed a wired connection to the Internet in order to function, but this isn’t necessarily the case anymore. These days, flexibility is king. Employees like the option to use a laptop or mobile device to get work done, so if you have a lot of them who do so, your workplace should reflect this. A strong wireless connection can enable your team to be even more productive in your workplace, giving them more options and empowering them to get the most out of their work day.
Uptime is Maximized
Everyone knows the annoyance of losing an Internet signal when it matters most. Businesses that seriously need the connection (which, let’s face it, is all of them) need to guarantee they stay connected to the Internet in any way they can. Let’s imagine, for instance, a business that uses a cloud-based productivity suite. If their connection to the Internet is lost, they are unable to get work done. This grinds productivity to a halt, and workers will be paid to sit around and wait for the Internet to be restored. If you have a backup Internet connection--which many businesses do--you can make sure this doesn’t happen, but the fact remains that downtime caused by a lost Internet connection can be a major annoyance, if not a detriment.
Distance from the Router Won’t Matter (As Much)
Big offices often require multiple routers in order to provide the same level of wireless access to all. A solid connection will generally be closer to the source, but if it’s powerful enough, distance won’t be as much of an issue, and interference can be minimized as a result. Of course, this doesn’t solve all problems associated with interference, but it can reduce it.
