Wi-Fi (802.11) is an access technology that connects IP devices to a wired network using wireless radios. The client devices have radios (wireless adapters) that connect to access point (AP) radios. These radios transmit over unlicensed radio spectrums; either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bands.
How does an IT manager determine the best Wi-Fi solution for their network? While most IT engineers are very familiar with IP networking, they aren’t always experts in radio technology — a different beast altogether. Until the commercialization of Wi-Fi, most IP networks did not utilize radio-based technology. Now Wi-Fi radios are found in virtually every type of device imaginable and businesses cannot avoid the trend!
70 percent of U.S. consumers own a Wi-Fi-enabled device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop, wireless Internet access on the go has evolved from a nice-to-have option to an essential and expected amenity. Indeed, one-third of mobile device users take advantage of a public Wi-Fi hotspot at least weekly. More than two out of three consumers say Wi-Fi availability influences their decisions about where to shop.
