Wireless access allows your computers and other hardware to function without the use of inconvenient wires. The most common wireless access solution is the wireless LAN, or wireless Local Area Network. A WLAN allows computers and hardware to communicate via radio waves rather than wires, uncluttering an office environment. Larger offices and businesses may need a wireless MAN, or Metropolitan Area Network, which is a connection between multiple WLANs.
With wireless access, space is no longer an obstacle when organizing your business. You can put hardware virtually anywhere, knowing you don’t need to worry about proximity to a router or to another computer. You will also be able to more easily add new hardware to your setup without having to concern yourself about how it will connect.
Greenwire Technology Solutions can help you set up wireless access in your office. Keep in mind that wireless access will also invoke the need for wireless security, as wireless connections are even more vulnerable to attack than traditional Internet connections. Greenwire can discuss all your wireless security options with you and will set up your Wi-Fi network with efficiency and care.

Point to point wireless network links connect two locations together through line of sight (LOS), operating in unlicensed/licensed radio frequencies or through free space optics with speeds available between 100mbps to 10Gbps.
The point-to-point wireless topology (also called P2P) is the simplest network architecture you can set up in order to connect two locations using a wireless radio link. Point-to-point wireless links can go from a short-range link connecting two locations just a few hundreds meters apart to a long range point-to-point wireless link that connects two locations tens of miles away from each other. In a point to-point-wireless link, distance is affected by the height of each Ethernet radio device, the frequency used, the power level, and environmental interference.
How A Good Network Can Benefit You
Increased mobility is by far the biggest attraction that wireless networking holds for most businesses. Being able to sit at any terminal, anywhere in the building and access the server is a great advantage.
When laptops were developed, because of the new mobility convenience factor that they brought within them, this gave added impetus to the advantages of being able to work anywhere within range of the wireless network signal. It means that not only can employees now access information from the server, wherever they are in the premises, but it also enables colleagues to collaborate and share information in meetings held anywhere; either in a corner of the office, a bespoke meeting room, or even the staff canteen. It enables total mobility.
The increased mobility factor both enables and facilitates the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon, which more and more businesses are now taking advantage of. Laptops, Tablets, and Smartphones that belong to individual employees are now being brought into the workplace and are being given access rights to the wireless network. As well, as making it more convenient for employees to carry out their tasks, BYOD also represents a potential cost saving, as businesses no longer have to fund the hardware cost of the devices themselves.
Another important by-product of the increased mobility factor is that it promotes increased productivity, allowing employees to collaborate where and when they need to. It brings freedom of operation and speeds up the working process. But there is another factor too, and that is that employees take their device’s home with them, and can work, (as many do), in their own time when it’s convenient to do so.
Wireless networking has also gone into the public domain, with Wi-Fi hotspots being available in many high street coffee shops, hotels, railway stations, airports, universities, hospitals, etc. It enables people to get onto the Internet when they’re away from the office, or away from home. People can pick up their emails, both social and business, and if their place of work allows, can also connect into the business network remotely.
