Are you considering rolling out wireless access points throughout your site? Consider the range of advantages afforded by these networks:
- Mobility — Wireless systems can provide users with access to real-time information anywhere in the organization, supporting productivity and service opportunities not possible with wired networks. There are now thousands of universities, hotels and public places with public wireless connection — freeing up students and professionals from having to be at home or at work to access the Internet.
- Installation Speed and Simplicity — Installing a wireless system can be fast and easy, with no need to pull cable through walls and ceilings.
- Reduced Cost-of-Ownership — While the initial investment required for wireless hardware can be higher than the cost of wired hardware, overall installation expenses and lifecycle costs are often significantly lower. Long-term cost benefits are greatest in dynamic environments that require frequent moves and changes.
- Scalability — Wireless systems can be configured in a variety of topologies to meet the needs of specific applications and installations. Configurations can also be easily changed, with options that range from peer-to-peer networks suitable for a small number of users to full infrastructure networks of thousands of users that enable roaming over a broad area.
