If you haven’t thought about, wireless means no wires and that is exactly what wireless networks are. Wireless networks replace cables with a radio waves to move data around your office and premises. To do so requires a Wireless Access Point or WAP, often built into your modem/router. Nearly all modem-routers supplied to homes of domestic users these these days include a WAP built into them, giving consumers the option of using wireless connectivity, cables or both, whichever suits the environment.
For business the same principles apply. In the past the limited reach and bandwidth restricted the wireless connectivity to an in office convenience for laptops and mobile devices supplementing hardwired workstations. But due to recent advances, they now offer a viable economic alternative to cabling. Hard wiring a new production floor or connecting an adjacent building can be expensive. To connect buildings in schools for example, network administrators found considerable savings deploying wireless point to point bridges as opposed to digging trenches and laying fibre/copper cabling. Wireless antenna’s can now deliver strong and reliable signals up to 200 metres which can be extend even further using repeater stations. Traditionally a wireless access point required a 240 v power source along with a network cable to work. Now the power is delivered via the network cable itself at a safe 5 volts eliminating the involvement of electricians and power points.
