In a world that is continuously advancing, the old must inevitably make way for the new. While important foundations exist in the past, these can be built upon and improved to gain increased benefits and ongoing evolution. The increasing acceptance of wireless networking worldwide has introduced an entirely fresh set of ideas and products that can enhance businesses’ efficiency and flexibility, and ultimately their profitability and performance.
Key benefits and solutions to pre-existing drawbacks include:
- SCALABILITY: Positioning the numerous wires required to connect computers and machines and concealing them has been a consistent traditional issue. Complicating it further was the need to add more wires and allocate more space when the business expanded or new employees arrived. With wireless networking this is no longer an issue; there are no limits to how big a company can grow as the wireless network is easily capable of growing with it. This facilitation can redirect business decision makers’ thoughts and time to more important matters as they comfortably manoeuvre their way through the workplace.
- CONVENIENCE: Wireless networks have upgraded users’ accessibility to their workstations and information. A user is now able to use numerous devices to enter into the network from various locations within the company instead of being limited to certain areas of accessibility. This makes information sharing and retrieval much simpler and faster. Additionally, it is has become highly beneficial, if not expected, to provide secured network access to guests to the office such as business people accustomed to travel, or even customers and suppliers.
- MOBILITY: Calling your manager or a colleague to your workstation to discuss something displayed on your screen is highly inconvenient and it is ludicrous to consider walking around with wires. The solution of course, is wireless networking. A wireless network provides users with the ability to pick up their laptops, tablets, or even phones and go wherever they need to within the organisation to talk over specific points with their colleagues. This may be especially useful for meetings.
- PRODUCTIVITY: Wireless networks not only offer the ability to work from different locations within an organisation, but also outside of it. In a business context this has the potential of increasing employee productivity as they have the option of working from any location they find convenient. This also allows business people to carry out their work or adjust it when necessary after-hours, when not able to come into the firm, or when they are in another country entirely.
