Wi-Fi is everywhere. Walk into a coffee shop, you can connect to it. Walk into a grocery store, you can connect to it. Being able to access the Internet is now an expectation for consumers. Providing good Wi-Fi can be a great benefit to businesses, but bad Wi-Fi can be a large expense.
Wi-Fi can have a different impact on your organization depending on the industry you operate in. Poor wireless connectivity in hospitals can cause delays in patients’ data and a lack of communication between doctors and nurses. In the education sector, classes can be delayed if teachers can’t access proper documents. Many people that work for their organization remotely use hotel Wi-Fi to complete work and hold conference calls. An organization would have problems updating their supply chain’s inventory and deliveries if they have unreliable connectivity.
What’s the result of bad wireless for an organization?
- Decreased customer loyalty
- Lost productivity
- Decreased employee satisfaction and performance
- Increased employee turnover
- Potential impact on employee collaboration

Implementing strong wireless
- The first step in implementing strong Wi-Fi is to create the plan. This means looking at what devices and applications you use, and your current network.
- Then, the technician looks at where access points should go and how many you need.
- The technician then validates and deploys the plan.
- Finally, the technician troubleshoots. This includes looking for existing interferences and making changes to any access points and their locations.
