Let’s get this one straight. If you need to cross the Atlantic pond and get to the other end, you can’t do it in a single-engine aircraft. Those are best suited for recreational and private use. Similarly, if you own an organization but attempt to run it on a residential grade Wi-Fi, you’re bound to experience similar things as you would at home - low on energy, low on productivity, and high on distractions.

Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi is deployed by organizations and businesses in order to offer mobility and flexibility to its staff, to attract and retain customers and guests, and to differentiate and keep up with the competition. An Enterprise Grade Wi-Fi Network, often referred to as a WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network), is an additional layer to a firm’s wired network which allows select wireless devices to access the local area network using a secure and robust wireless connection. A well designed and well capacitated WLAN attempts to provide the similar experience as the wired LAN. The same access to network locations and files as a wired LAN, same or better levels of security and similar bandwidth - but with the added advantage and efficiencies of enabling mobility.  

 

In the era of IoT, 5G and AI, the network systems have to be robust, efficient and strong. Enterprises require fast, high-capacity and secure connections in order to handle the volume of mobile devices, the applications and systems they run, and the capacity they seek to run at. They need to support the smart business systems of today, the top security needs, the running of real time applications like audio/visuals, and countless data activities.It is for that reason that the residential grade Wi-Fi in a high-performing Enterprise environment will be nothing short of a ‘buzz-kill’.

 

The organizations need an enterprise grade Wi-Fi that provides state-of-the-art performance, speed and coverage, and enable seamless mobility. And there is no room for ‘yeah-but’s. High traffic is very natural and typical to organizations and high-performing businesses, and Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi delivers meaningful advantages that make it easier to manage and leverage the high traffic as well as optimize the user experience. It is capable of sustaining high loads and offering a strong user experience, and a busy businesses environment indubiously demands a reliable and robust network without taking away the mobility and flexibility.

 

Enterprise-grade Wi-Fi is also surprisingly simple to manage. Nobody wants to log into their DSL router or modem and go through a tedious configuration in order to manage a Wi-Fi network. Old-fashioned networks with hardware controllers are inadequate, too expensive, difficult to maintain, and hard to expand. Cloud-based and simplified, user friendly management is key to providing an effective enterprise solution.   Enterprise-grade network offers ease of installation, low maintenance, simplicity, and scalability. Enterprise-grade networks can be managed from a central location and businesses do not need to hire a full house of IT department to handle their systems anymore. The access points (AP) are self-configuring, and they automatically upgrade their own software and firmware, and come with a lifetime warranty.

 

The key benefits of enterprise-grade Wi-Fi are control of costs, enhanced security, and greater capacity (which provides better throughput speeds). The business case for an enterprise-grade Wi-Fi is similar to that of a DAS with more workers desiring to use their BYOD wireless devices; and in turn, the business gains the efficiencies, augments its productivity, enhances the overall performance and collaboration, and negates the risk of runaway data overcharges on cellular connections. Get the Enterprise Wi-Fi today; do not attempt to cross the Atlantic on a single-engine aircraft.
