The rapid world-wide adoption rate of wireless networking has historically been related to the need for lowering the costs associated with network infrastructure and to support the growing need for worker mobility. Wireless LANs allow users to access shared information without looking for a place to “plug in”. Users not only access information in different locations while at work, they also can access email, websites and other network services at home and while traveling on business. Network managers can set up and augment wireless networks without installing or moving wires. Wireless networking is a very attractive and cost effective alternative to expensive, labor intensive network cable implementations.
Benefits of wireless networks
The proliferation of wireless networking both inside and outside the workplace has not been lost on technology innovators. New products have come into the market that would not have been possible if not for wireless networking. An RFID product that tracks assets through numbered tags to provide current location, temperature and last date of servicing automates a previously flawed human process. An IP Surveillance product that assists local Law Enforcement by allowing command center personnel to move camera positions in real-time to thoroughly analyze situations prior to officer arrival. Both examples show how new innovative technology has made a difference because of the ability to move information in real-time over a secure wireless network.
It has been proven that wireless networking can improve team collaboration, increasing worker productivity. Wireless networks are also easier to maintain, allowing network administrators to focus on the organization’s more complex network infrastructure. Faster and easier access to shared information through wireless technology improves worker satisfaction. And new wireless technologies have begun to increase the efficiency of organizations that choose to innovate through adoption.
