In order for any business to be Instantly On, access to the Internet is fundamental – whether it be a ROHO (remote office home office), a restaurant or coffee shop, or hotel offering their patrons free Wi-Fi access.
It is also a fundamental link to the outside world and being able to set up this technology with ease, will be key for any business owner.
To start, having a clear understanding of your business environment will be critical.
Here are three key steps for identifying your business’s Wi-Fi needs.
Step #1 – Identify number of devices
Think about how many devices are you connecting to your network?
Think laptops, phones, tablets, security cameras, PoS terminals, and smart devices like lighting and climate control.
That could be 1-50, 50 to 100 or 100+.
Step #2 – Determine usage requirements
Think about how much usage is required.
Determine whether this will be:
- Light – such as for Internet browsing and file-sharing apps like Google Docs, M365 and SharePoint;
- Moderate – for file-sharing apps, voice, video and music streaming;
- High – for video conferences, critical apps and content creation.
Step #3 – Consider outdoor coverage
Think about if you need to have outdoor coverage.
Specialised equipment may be need to offer connectivity in areas like parking lots, pools, and patio areas.
