Wireless Communications

The Benefits of Wireless Communication

There are several kinds of wireless technologies; the main difference being their range. Some offer connectivity over an area as large as your desktop whilst others can cover a medium-sized office space.

Our most familiar wireless network, the mobile phone, covers whole continents.

Wireless technology can offer businesses more flexible and inexpensive ways to send and receive data.

The four key benefits of wireless technology are:

  1. Increased efficiency – improved communications leads to faster transfer of information within businesses and between partners/customers.

  2. You are rarely out of touch – you don’t need to carry cables or adaptors in order to access office networks.

  3. Greater flexibility and mobility for users – office-based wireless workers can be networked without sitting at dedicated PCs.

  4. Reduced costs – relative to ‘wired’, wireless networks are, in most cases, cheaper to install and maintain.

You can find out more about the specific benefits that different wireless solutions offer you by looking at the different wireless options.

Different types of wireless technologies offer different benefits, so work out what your business needs for wireless are.

Local Wireless

Local wireless (or PAN – Personal Area Network) solutions may suffice if you want to free-up space, get rid of cables and allow non-office based workers to drop in to the office, use the printers and download data from laptops or PDAs to the office PCs.

Wireless Network

Wireless network (WLAN) solutions can help if you need a network providing shared internet, extranet or intranet access, or wish to connect several non-cabled office spaces. They are also a good option if you want to offer convenient network access to visiting employees.

Mobile Phone Network

Mobile phone network (or WAN – Wide Area Network) technologies can help businesses with mobile sales staff.
