24 August 2018
In this fast pace world where we’re travelling around more, technology is developing at an increasing speed and businesses are multiplying thanks to social media and marketing trends, internet connectivity, the backbone of every business, needs to keep up with this pace. More and more businesses are choosing wireless networks over wired networks as there are so many benefits to this. ICT Solutions are a wifi installation company and specialise in designing and installing wireless networks to improve internet connectivity in businesses.
Take a look at the top 5 advantages of having a wireless network installed in your business premises from an expert wifi installation company.
1. Increased productivity
The more work that can be done and the more efficient this work is for your employees the better, as increased productivity means increases in profit. Wireless network allows for more efficient and faster productivity, not only in terms of internet speed but you also have the advantage of working at any time, anywhere. You’re not limited to normal 9-5 hours as employees can work remotely and still access data, emails and documents etc. This means that work can be completed ahead of time as there’s no need to be physically in the office. Employees can also share and collaborate information wherever they are in the premises.
No matter how secure your network is there’s always a risk of it being hacked, however, wireless networks are pretty secure. You also have control of who can access your network, for instance, wireless networks allow guests to access your internet connection securely. You can also increase your security by acquiring our services such as anti-virus software, disaster recovery plans, data backups and 24 hour monitoring to ensure your business is always protected.
Before you decide the type of network you’re going to have installed, you should consider how well this will adapt if your business were to grow. If you install wired network and your company expanded you will need to have more cables installed which can disrupt business operations and productivity. Wireless networks are fully scalable, so if your business were to increase or decrease in size your network is able to cope and, more importantly there’s no need for more installation work.
4. Cost Effective
Installing wired networks can be quite expensive with all the cabling and the labour required to install this. Plus, as mentioned earlier when it comes to expanding your business and network there will be extra costs to install more cabling. With wireless networks there is just a simple one off cost upon installation and thereafter you won’t need to physically scale your network up or down depending on business needs. This so beneficial for businesses as cost is such an important factor when installing internet, and the lower this cost is the better.
5. Works for Multiple Devices
Wireless network is great for not only computers, but also mobiles, laptops, printers and much more. For businesses in particular wireless network works well for VoIP systems which are more reliable, efficient, mobile and affordable.
