To determine whether you need a wired or a wireless network for your business, you first need to know the different between the two.
A wired network uses data cabling to connect devices to a network or the internet. Most of the time this is done through ethernet ports, connecting the network router to each individual computer in the space.
A wireless network, or wireless local-area network (LAN) connects to devices (phones, laptops, tablets, etc.) using radio waves traveling through the air. You connect to "Wi-Fi" daily as some businesses today allow access to outside users. Think of a library or a coffee shop, you access their internet using a wireless network.
Benefits of a Wireless Network
Many businesses implement a wireless network due to the associated benefits, the number one benefit being convenience and ease of mobility. Without the use of wires, your network can be accessed from anywhere within your business. You're also no longer tied down to a desk and can use other devices to connect.
This also encourages collaboration between employees with the freedom to move around. Installation of a wireless network is simple and quick, without wires being needed, which also lowers the overall cost.
