5 Reasons for SMBs to Go Wireless & Increase Business ProductivityWireless Network provides better connectivity, productivity and increased network expansion with an incremental spent.

Over the past years, one of the most dynamic technological trends is the availability and growing probability of ubiquitous connectivity whether it is for accessing information, having a video call or checking emails irrespective of place, time or situation. In today’s modern scenario, wireless technology is becoming a technological workhorse in all sorts of organizations, businesses, modern homes and is enabling to use wireless devices for accessing documents, emails, applications and other network resources.

Wireless network, no doubt acts as a catalyst in present dynamic business organizations by boosting productivity and encouraging wide access to information and barrier-free information sharing. However, it has been seen that SMBs are still using poor network connections which stands as a hindrance in providing better customer services, limited access to information and meagre connectivity.

There are various types of wireless networks available which provides freedom of movement and the capability to range applications to different parts of a building, city, or almost anywhere in the world. A wireless network allows interaction between different organizations via e-mail or accesses the Internet from a location which they would prefer which can help small businesses to increase their efficiency and productivity.

So, if you are still stuck up with the old network connection, here are 5 important reasons why you should switch to wireless networks:

1. Seamless Mobility
Different wireless technologies and networks exist that can address to different needs and requirements of SMBs. As these different wireless networks act as complementary to each other in terms of their capabilities and aptness for different applications, incorporation of these networks will enable the users to be always connected to the best available access network depending on their needs. Wireless networks allow greater coverage than typical APs (access points) for blanket coverage to ensure seamless connectivity for Wi-Fi devices across enterprise environments.

They also help in:-
• Increased effectiveness and efficiency in the working environment
• It allows a person to roam from one place to another, unlike wired networks

2. Wide Coverage & High Sensitivity
Wireless Networks allows adjustable RF output power and high receiver sensitivity for wide coverages across large spaces which can actually benefit the SMBs.

3. Designed for High Density Usage and Cost Effectiveness
The technological advancement of Wireless networks supports up to a hundred users simultaneously, which are ideal for crowded environments and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) workplaces which more and more businesses are now taking advantage of.

Laptops, PCs, Tablets, and Smartphones that belong to an individual employee are now being brought into the workplace and are being given access rights to the wireless network, as well as making it more appropriate and easy for employees to carry out their on-going tasks.

Bring Your Own Device also represents a possible cost saving as businesses no longer have to fund the hardware cost of the devices themselves.

4. Built-In Radius Server
Radius provides an extra measure of security in a wireless LAN by requiring user-based authentication. Many Wireless networks provide Built in Radius server into its Product line of access points, bringing higher security through creating different SSIDs for the user and the guest within reach for even small to mid-sized wireless networks.

As an additional quality, many wireless connections also allow management for up to 256 user accounts.

5. Dual band Routers provide high speed
Dual band router typically operates in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, with software built into the router which senses the path of least resistance for the radio signals, unlike single band wireless network. Dual band routers are generally recommended for people who have a larger space to cover and people who want to have video chats/calls, particularly high-definition content in the entire office premises.

When performance and security are critical for your business, you need products that are engineered for your industry. There is still time to switch from wired to wireless networks in order to access the fast wireless internet which can save your time and offer you better efficiency. So, choose your wireless network wisely keeping all these points in mind. (source: Convergence Plus Bureau)
