Wi-Fi is everywhere. Walk into a coffee shop, you can connect to Wi-Fi. Walk into a grocery store, you can connect to Wi-Fi. Being able to access the Internet is an expectation now a days to consumers. Providing strong 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 Wi-Fi in hospitals can cause delays in patient’s 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. Lastly, an organization would have problems updating their supply chain’s inventory and deliveries if they have unreliable Wi-Fi.
What’s the end result of bad Wi-Fi for an organization?
- Decreased customer loyalty
- Lost productivity
- Decreased employee satisfaction and performance
- Increased employee turnover
- Potential impact on employee collaboration
A Wireless Technician understands what is involved in the lifecycle of strong Wi-Fi.
The first step in implementing strong Wi-Fi is to create the plan. This means looking at what devices are used, your current network and what applications are used. Then, the technician will look at where access points should go and how many are needed. Later, the plan will be validated and deployed. The last step is to troubleshoot. This includes looking for existing interferences and making changes to any access points and their locations.
