What is a wireless network?
A wireless network, or wireless local-area network (WLAN), connects multiple devices via radio waves to the internet, your business network and your company’s various applications. For example, let’s say you’re in the airport, and you connect your phone to the free airport WiFi – what you’re really connecting to is the airport’s wireless network via radio waves.
How does a wireless network differ from a wired network?
A wired network uses cables instead of radio waves to connect devices to the internet or to a network. The cables most commonly used for wired networks are Ethernet cables, which are plugged into Ethernet ports on a network router and a PC to create the connection between the device and the network.
Wireless networks perform this same action, but radio waves take the place of the physical Ethernet cables, meaning your PC doesn’t need to be tethered to the router in order for you to access the network.
How can a Wireless Network benefit my business?
Wireless networks are very convenient. With a wireless network, your employees can access network resources from any location within the wireless network’s coverage area (within the radius of the radio waves). All this added mobility often leads to added productivity and ease of daily operations – the increased availability of company files encourages collaboration between employees and improves efficiency by giving employees access to the resources they need when they need them, whatever device they’re using. What’s more, installation is a snap without the hassle of stringing cables and re-organizing the office just to connect a PC with the router. This also makes expanding the network very easy and cost-effective; there are no additional cabling costs.
