Why You Need Wi-Fi
Wi-Fi has become the ubiquitous name in Internet communication services. It has found its way into many of our daily lives by allowing our home Internet to work wirelessly, as opposed to the previous methods: dial-up and LAN.
Wi-Fi, generally speaking, is brought into the home or office through physical cables that are connected to a modem. The modem then relays the information to the router or access points. This, in turn, allows devices within a certain range to access the network, providing they have the proper provisions or codes to do so.
This system of data transfer has become so prevalent in society that it is often the go-to system for machine-to-machine communication. From something as simple as a data transfer from your old cell phone to a new one to something as large-scale as business inventory management.
Large organizations have begun to utilize Wi-Fi for a cornucopia of purposes due to its ability to transfer data further than ever before. Educational facilities run entire campuses, online and offline, through their Wi-Fi systems. Alerts and notifications at healthcare facilities and mining sites can be relayed from machine to machine without the use of cables and without someone physically monitoring the hardware. Hotels and resorts have now implemented Wi-Fi to be utilized by guests to improve customer experience and allow the on-the-go businessperson to continue to conduct business from the comfort of their own hotel room. More and more often, surveillance systems are being run through Wi-Fi integrated systems for its ease-of-use and adaptability.
The advantages of Wi-Fi are innumerable. The most obvious advantage is the minimal use of cables and wiring. This saves on clutter, overhead, and maintenance by allowing businesses to purchase fewer physical items and, if necessary, repair or replace fewer physical items.
The aforementioned ubiquity of Wi-Fi is not to be understated. Most consumer and business electronics come with Wi-Fi capabilities built in and have done away with the Ethernet port altogether. Some countries are even considering implementing Wi-Fi hotspots in their vending machines for guests of nearby establishments.
Another way in which Wi-Fi enables businesses to work more effectively is through heightened security measures. Rather than risking outsiders physically breaking into your systems, Wi-Fi can be customized for your preferred level of security. Whether you want only predetermined devices to access the system, password locks, or both, you’re able to secure your business’ network with a few keystrokes.
Wi-Fi also enhances your team’s ability to work together. Rather than having a group project be conducted by two members wired to the wall across the office, your team members can bring their laptops to each other, allowing them to work in areas more conducive to their project and more easily get feedback from one another.
Wi-Fi is the wave of the future and your all-in-one business solution.
