Wi-Fi is a trademark name for the popular wireless technology used in offices, warehouses, hospitals, private care facilities, home networks, mobile phones, and anywhere else people need to gain mobile access to information.
The benefits of Wi-Fi are to enable wireless access to deliver voice, data, and video streams with no cables attached. The benefits of Wi-Fi include:
- Enable staff to carry portable Wi-Fi handsets giving them the ability to take calls anywhere, anytime
- Using Wi-Fi enables PDA’s and Laptops to deliver quick and easy access to information
- Eliminate cellular usage charges
- Eliminate cabling and wiring for PC’s
- Eliminate switches, adapters, plugs, pins, and connectors
When looking to implement a Wi-Fi (WAN) system, it is important to ensure that the system has a few important features which include:
- Secure networking using the latest secure networking protocols
- Simplified management software
- Simultaneous Dual Mode radios allowing fully segmented voice/ data/ video traffic across the entire network
- Radio Frequency sweeping technology that disables rogue and ad hoc wireless devices not relevant to the network
- Fast roaming and seamless data packet transfer
- Quality of Service or QOS
A wireless LAN (WAN) system needs to be capable of delivering high-quality voice, multi-media and business applications while meeting stringent security requirements, delivering seamless mobility functionality, easily, and cost effectively. It must also be quick to install and simple to operate.
Algo Communication Products Ltd. offers industry leading wireless solutions, delivering secure mobility, the broadest range of services, and the lowest total cost of ownership of any WLAN systems.
One thing is certain; the promise of Wi-FI is that it will continue to deliver a solution with an increasingly compelling business proposition. As Wi-Fi evolves, it will become difficult to justify making an investment in wired technology when wireless will get you everything you need for less money, increased flexibility, with as good or even better security than legacy wired systems.
