Granting yourself and your users the ability to step away from the desk to meet and collaborate can increase productivity, and when everybody can be on the network with their laptops or tablets, you can get even more done. However, store-bought commercial wireless routers aren’t really designed to handle the traffic your business needs, nor do they have the security in place to keep your activity safe.
415 IT offers complete wireless system deployment for Bay Area small and medium-sized businesses. By having a uniform wireless strategy implemented throughout your entire business, your users can access the Internet, and your intranet, regardless of their location in your office. There are a number of factors that require your attention before implementing a wireless solution, and 415 IT can walk you through the process every step of the way.
How much of your office needs wireless access?
Depending on the size of your business, your office could be a series of small rooms, an entire building, or a city block. Naturally, you want access to WiFi across the entire perimeter of your workplace. However, as one router may not be enough to handle all areas of your office, implementing a solution to this problem can be complicated. Another consideration is that routers often conflict with each other if they’re within range of one another, making it ideal for the setup process to be performed by a professional.
415 IT knows the ins and outs of how to set up wireless access across your organization’s entire office, including how to avoid discrepancies with both wiring and router specifications. Our trusted technicians know can quickly ascertain what kind of wireless routing solution that would be best for you, and they’ll work around your requirements to ensure you get a wireless network that meets your business’ unique demands.
Number of Users
How many users need access to your WiFi?
A router only replicates a certain amount of bandwidth. This naturally controls the speed of your service. When more users are connected to a particular router, they consume more of the available bandwidth. The increased traffic can affect your business’ productivity, and potentially even disrupt your connection completely.
This is why it’s imperative that you understand the limitations that your routers have, and that you need to consider how many users will be accessing each one at any given time. 415 IT can help your business optimize router deployment so that your users have consistent access to your WiFi at all times, increasing both productivity and efficiency.
Levels of Security
How strict should your login credentials be?
Last but not least, your organization needs to ensure optimal security on your wireless networks. Many threats, like viruses and malware, are capable of infiltrating unsecured WiFi networks and spread their infections like wildfire. This can put any and all devices that connect to your WiFi in danger; not to mention your organization’s data infrastructure.
When 415 IT deploys a wireless solution, we make sure that it takes into account industry best practices to create the WiFi security you need to protect your network. You don’t want to rely on the default hardware-level firewall protection to keep your business’s network safe from threats. Our professional technicians know how best to keep your wireless networks safe, and we can educate your staff about best practices, too.
