Why Commercial Grade WiFi Makes Sense for Organizations & Businesses

If you own an organization but attempt to run it on a residential grade WiFi, you’ll likely experience similar things you would at home—low energy and productivity, and high distractions.

Commercial-grade, managed WiFi is deployed by organizations and businesses for staff mobility and flexibility, client attraction and retention, and more. Often referred to as a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), this technology is an additional wired network layer facilitating a secure and robust connection. A well-designed WLAN attempts to provide a similar experience as the wired LAN. This includes the same access to network locations and files as a wired LAN, same or better levels of security and similar bandwidth—but with the added advantage and efficiencies of mobility.

Commercial Grade WiFi Qualifications

In the era of the Internet of Things (IoT), 5G cellular networks, and AI, network systems must be robust, efficient and strong. Commercial grade Wi-Fi requires fast, high-capacity and secure connections to handle mobile device volume, operations and systems. Residential grade WiFI simply cannot handle current smart business systems, top security needs, and real time applications such as audio/video, and other data activities.

High traffic is very natural for organizations and high-performing businesses. Therefore, commercial grade WiFi can easily manage and leverage optimized user experiences—even during high usage. These busy environments demand a reliable and robust network, while upholding mobility and flexibility.

The Many Features & Benefits of Commercial Grade WiFi

Commercial grade WiFi is easy to install, and offers low maintenance with high simplicity and scalability. It can also be managed from a central location without enlisting an internal IT department or third-party provider. Self-configuring access points, as well as automated software and firmware upgrades, are just a few of this technology's many benefits.

Boasting a lifetime warranty, commercial grade WiFi provides cost control, enhanced security, and greater capacity for improved throughput speeds. This technology's business case is similar to a Distributed Antenna System (DAS), especially with increased Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies. This helps organizations with added efficiencies, augmented productivity, and enhanced performance and collaboration. Data overcharges on cellular connections will also be a thing of the past.
