WiFi (802.11x) Wireless

Wireless is a credible alternative to implementing fixed cabling systems and can reduce costs where new or upgraded cabling is required. It also provides flexibility for mobile workers and hot deskers as they don’t need the inconvenience of a physical cable to connect to corporate systems, the key is security and a flexible range of internal and external Access Points (APs) solutions coupled with the right controller to manage the security. Netgear-WiFi-logo With the uptake of BYOD, more than half of all UK adults now own four or more internet-enabled devices, and use at least two of these to connect to WiFi while outside the home. What this means is that there is a growing number of people who are arriving with several devices and expecting to connect them all to the Internet. At least one of these devices, most likely the tablet, consumes considerable amounts of bandwidth as it is used to run applications, download and play videos, films and games dependent on the sector. This has far-reaching implications for the connectivity you offer for staff and guest network access.
