Businesses are increasingly feeling the need to change their enterprise network to accommodate the growing demand for wireless network connectivity. Many businesses are looking forward to building their enterprise wireless network solutions to support the arrival of mobile devices. As many practices are going wireless like wireless printers, laptops at the workplace, and cloud-based applications.
A wireless network is more than a collection of Wi-Fi Apps. It is great for security and performance, it can handle the much higher capacity of users, and configuration is centralized, and it is very easy to manage.
There are many advantages of having an enterprise wireless network that you do not get in a traditional wireless network. Some of the advantages are as follows:
- Your users can move from one room to another without the fear of losing the network connectivity of applications and files that require an uninterrupted network connection. Enterprise wireless network gives better collaboration capabilities to the user.
- Administrators will not have to make changes to every access point separately, but they manage and configure, manage, and make changes from a centralized location.
- Enterprise wireless network has better compliance capabilities. It comes with better security features and has to meet regulatory compliance.
- It also gives a better end-user experience because it is faster than the traditional wireless network and has fewer disruptions.
Although there are many advantages to using enterprise wireless network solutions, you should still consider a few things when choosing the right network for your organization. These considerations will provide you with better and stronger security, streamline management, and improve the end-user experience. A few things that you should consider are as follows:
Have you experienced that you are watching a video on YouTube, and it gets blurry or starts to buffer while you are in the middle of the video even though you have a fast speed internet connection? It happens because you might be getting too much radio frequency interference. It can cause a momentous drop in the wireless network. Most of the interference originates from WIFI routers but also be from other Wi-Fi devices or maybe from other sources that are not WIFI devices, for example, microwave and Bluetooth.
Sometimes you can fix this issue by repositioning your devices. But in most cases, you will have to replace your devices with a different frequency than the device that is interfering with your WIFI device. You can also have a permanent solution to this by intelligent controllers that can detect interference and autotune the network.
Before you start building the network according to your needs. You must look for a place where you get the maximum coverage.
- Eliminate the places where there are dead spots.
- Look for the place that will have the maximum number of users so that they can enjoy the maximum coverage.
- The number of devices that are likely to be connected on each floor or room so that you can configure the coverage.
- Check what materials are used in the walls because certain wireless devices have a penetration limit. Concreate walls become a hurdle for devices.
