Why Go Wireless?
Today, it seems that everywhere you go it is possible to access a Wi-Fi service with your smartphone, digital tablet, or laptop. Except, perhaps, at your workplace.
Yet interest in providing wireless access within offices and other facilities is growing fast among businesses of all types and sizes. This interest reflects business needs and trends, such as:
Enhancing productivity with mobile devices that can access the business network from anywhere; these devices may becompany-owned or an employee’s personal device that is permitted under a “bring your own device” (BYOD) program.
Providing a Wi-Fi hotspot for Internet access by guest workers, customers, and visitors
Reducing network installation and support burden on facility and IT staff
Minimizing network cabling in a new or remodeled facility
Deploying broadband backup capabilities for primary WAN or Internet connections
To serve these needs, businesses are evaluating wireless LAN (WLAN) and broadband wireless backup services. Yet deploying new services—and getting the greatest business value from them—means more than just installing a few access points. It requires enterprise-class equipment, carrier-grade circuits for connecting to the corporate network and Internet, expert planning and support, as well as ongoing management for network performance, security, and compliance.
For many businesses, it is not practical to do all of this in-house. Instead, businesses are looking to outsource their wireless LAN deployment to a services provider, one that eliminates the operational headaches while delivering a reliable wireless service at a reasonable price.
