Buying a WiFi solution from your business can be complicated, but here’s 10 things that you should know to help you make the right decision for your business.
You should consider how many users are going to be on your WiFi network before anything else. Whether it’s just staff or staff and customers, your WiFi should be able to uphold their requirements and stay reliable, even with everyone connected.
Routers, also known as access points (APs), are an important factor in any business WiFi solution. Having the right number of APs is important because it will ensure that you have good, reliable coverage across your premises.
Coverage is another important factor when considering a new WiFi solution. Ask yourself how much of your premises you need covered? Is there an outside area? Do you have outbuildings or larger offices that may require multiple APs?
Some businesses may require a guest network, alongside their staff network. If this is the case, you may need more broadband lines, or even a leased line, to keep up with the high demand of guest network.
A common use of WiFi is to gather email addresses for marketing purposes. This can be done using a bespoke guest WiFi solution from Commsplus. It enables you to provide a login page for guests to help you gather data for marketing.
