More and more businesses today are adopting the use of Local Area Network (LAN), to enable their employees in sharing a common data source. Without a proper network system, the communication of information and data between computer systems would be impossible, obstructing normal business operation. The computer network is essential to all kinds of business operations; it keeps all useful applications and essential internet services connected to the computer systems.
The two main types of networks are: wireless and wired. As the names indicate, wireless networks use wireless data connections between network nodes while wired networks connect to the systems through cables. There is always an ongoing debate on whether businesses should deliver their LAN’s through a wireless or wired network connection. A grown interest for wireless LAN implementation can be seen in various vertical markets such as education, retail health care and many more.
The increasing popularity of wireless LAN is evidence primarily to their mobility, cost efficiency, productivity and easy to access.Here is a list of six potential benefits of deploying a wireless network.
