For small businesses, every second count’s and wireless networks are a powerful tool for boosting productivity and encouraging information sharing. Employees can roam where they need to and have constant access to the other tool required to do their jobs with untethered access to documents, emails, applications and other network resources. Here some of the ways businesses are taking advantage of wireless LANs.
Mobility and Collaboration
Anyone who uses your wireless LAN can roam around your office or to different floors without losing their internet connection. Imagine everyone in a team meeting or in small conferences having access to up-to-the-minute communications and all documents and applications on your network. Similarly, using Voice over Wireless LAN technology, they can have roaming capabilities in their voice communications.
Potential customers expect a quick response to queries and concerns. A wireless network can improve customer service by connecting staff to the information they need. For example, a doctor in a small medical office can access online patient files while moving between exam rooms, or a retail sales can check on available inventory necessary to write up orders on the showroom floor.
Access to Information
Wireless networks allow a business to bring network access to areas that would be difficult to connect to a wired network. For example, adding wireless access points to a warehouse can make it easier to check and manage inventory, providing the company with accurate inventory figures in real time.
A wireless network allows your business to provide secure wireless access to the internet for guests such as customers or business partners. Retailers, restaurants, hotels and other public-facing businesses can provide this as unique value-added service.
