Wireless solutions are systems that enable you to seamlessly connect your network without being impeded by the limitations of physical cabling. But why switch to wireless solutions when your legacy system a.k.a. traditionally connected network, is doing just fine? This is because wireless solutions can help to increase efficiency of your business in five (5) different ways:
1. Faster and Simpler Installations
Wireless solutions are usually faster to install and easier to set up compared to physical cabling, whether it is within an office’s physical infrastructure or on hardware (desktops, laptops). For example, Apple laptops may not have ports to insert an Ethernet cable, but with wireless networks, you don’t have to worry about this. It is also much safer for employees in a small office to work with a wireless network system as it reduces the number of cables lying around – smaller offices mean less space, so it is much more likely for employees to trip over any exposed cables.
2. Increase Mobility at Work
Wireless solutions allow your employees to be able to access information and work from anywhere in your office space instead of being confined to a desk. This encourages teamwork as employees can get together to discuss or brainstorm without sacrificing connectivity, while increasing productivity as employees can choose to move their workspace to another part of the office if they feel that they can work better there (more quiet, better lighting, etc.).
3. Ability to Extend Network Reach
Depending on your office’s infrastructure, there may be some areas that are not accessible for wires and cables, but this is easily solved with wireless solutions. Some situational examples include having a limited number of cables installed in meeting rooms, enabling employees with bad cell reception being able to check-in via MySejahtera using the office’s wireless network, or even work from the pantry during lunch if they choose to.
4. Increased Flexibility and Scalability
Thanks to the absence of physical cabling, wireless solutions provide owners with more options for flexibility and scalability. Should your organisation or network change in the future, you can easily update the wireless network to meet new configurations. Examples include enabling access to the company’s internal server for employees working from home or remotely and increasing cloud storage anytime rather than waiting for someone to come and install a physical server.
5. Reduce Ownership Costs
When you first install a wireless network system in your office, you may be surprised to discover that it costs more, but over time, you will find that your overall expenses are lower. This is because wireless solutions allow for flexibility and scalability, so even if your office grows, your wireless network system can easily be configured to accommodate. Wireless solutions also tend to have a longer lifecycle than traditionally connected networks, so you don’t have to constantly pay for upgrades.
In a nutshell, wireless solutions can help to increase the efficiency of your organisation in many ways – 5 of which have been covered in this article. Given the level of technological advancement today, it is not surprising that more organisations are transitioning to wireless solutions. However, we would like to emphasize that this would not be merely a technological shift; ultimately, it is a cultural shift to become a modern digital business. Organisations that implement this approach will enjoy lower operating costs, productivity boosts, increased mobility, and obtain the ability to attract and retain a younger workforce.
