Point-to-point wireless is easy for businesses to deploy without requiring infrastructure changes. It is cost-effective and enhances communication.
Point-To-Point Wireless Technology Enhances Business Communications
When wireless technology was first introduced, it seemed miraculous. Now, wireless access points are a must for any successful business or institution with wireless internet users. There are several advantages that wireless access points offer your business when compared to the use of traditional wireless routers.
Wireless Access Points Versus Routers
An access point lets more people access the network. A router creates a local area network (LAN).
Routers let the devices of your employees connect to the internet via ethernet or Wi-Fi. To do this, the router has to be connected to the ISPs CPE via an ethernet or coaxial cable. Your router assigns IP addresses all your organization’s devices and controls the communication between them.
Your access point connects to your router via an ethernet cable. It extends the reach of your router, giving your devices another location from which to connect to the router and then the internet. It allows your business to connect more of its devices to the internet while maintaining connectivity. Routers might serve as access points, but access points can never be routers.
How Does Point-To-Point Wireless Technology Benefit Your Business?
Point-to-point (P2P) networks allow you to economize time and make the best use of your resources. Instead of tearing up the streets and parking lots to install wires and conduits or instead of using a VPN to connect via the public internet for inner office networking, point-to-point wireless networks provide a safe method to create a network for your locations.
•Point-to-point wireless communication provides high levels of encryption and cannot be accessed by other parties
•A lack of physical connections minimizes the risk of accidents or vandalism
•Increased reliability because communicating devices share the same line of sight
•Can be deployed in remote areas, facilitating cost-effective office to office communication
•Compatible with a wide area network and physical mediums, enhancing communication
•Consistent connections between end-users because of line-of-sight connection between communicating devices
P2P wireless networks improve the capacity of your network and give you a scalable, flexible option for networking when compared to installing fiber lines or copper lines. Installation times are reduced to a fraction of what they were. It is a technology that works well for large organizations, like Microsoft, HP Inc., and Intel. It can also be the right solution for small to medium-sized organizations looking to improve connectivity and reduce costs.
