One of the most essential components of a business's IT infrastructure is the Wi-Fi that links everyone to the internet. When waiting for pages to load or files to download, a bad internet connection can slow everyone down and make them impatient, which in turn causes lags in business processes. For a long time, there used to be one single router connected to a modem from an internet service provider that served as the only source of power for office wireless networks.
Fortunately, a better and revolutionary solution exists that addresses a variety of issues, including poor signals, blocked signals, dead zones, and more. These are essentially wireless networks with numerous access points instead of just one and are referred to as “Wi-Fi Access Points.”
Uplevel Systems’ Secure Wireless Access Points are designed to provide reliable, super-fast internet connectivity throughout your entire business without encountering issues in locations that are too far from the primary wireless router. Each of your office's laptops and other internet-connected devices can connect to an access point that is carefully positioned nearby rather than relying on a single router.
The base router, which is directly connected to your ISP's modem as well as the access points, communicates with one another. They cover your coverage area with a web, or mesh, of internet connectivity, ensuring that there are no dead spots or weak regions and that a strong signal is present across your entire enterprise.
A Wireless Access point is a wireless networking device that allows wireless devices and networks to connect through a wired network using wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi. While a Wi-Fi Booster is a networking device used to extend the wireless network's coverage area.
Here are the advantages of cloud-managed Wi-Fi Access Points for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses:
2.1. Cloud Managed Wi-Fi Access Points provide installation, setup, network management, and diagnosis through a single point of management.
2.2. Cloud networking solutions make it easier to manage the dynamic networking requirements of small and mid-sized businesses by providing a centralized interface and one-click self-servicing.
2.3. They are equipped with the highest security frameworks, ensuring very minimum business vulnerability.
2.4. SMBs can simply employ a cloud-managed solution for its security advantages and benefits rather than investing extra money in building a security framework for a network.
2.5. These wireless access points are automatically updated with the most recent firmware and security patches, increasing the security of your business.
No, you do not need a special router to use Wireless Access Points. Wireless Access Point converts the wired network into a wireless network. And for this, the Access Point is connected to a router which is connected to the wired network.
Uplevel Systems’ Secure Wireless Access Point is built from industrial strength components and optimized firmware to increase capacity and offer seamless mobility. It has a fully isolated Guest network with bandwidth control.
It has the capability to manage fleets of Wi-Fi APs across multiple offices from a single pane of glass. In addition, it has a super powerful, long-range IP65-rated outdoor AP for external coverage.
Here are a few things to know before choosing the best wireless access point for business -
1. Range: The range that a wireless access point can cover is a crucial factor, therefore choosing a WAP that can provide a more extensive coverage area is more advantageous for businesses.
2. Price: It’s not necessarily true that the higher the price, the better the wireless access point. In order to avoid being duped by false advertising effects, it is, therefore, necessary to have a comprehensive grasp of the true performance of wireless APs.
3. Speed: The speed at which information moves, which is typically expressed in bps (bits per second), kilobits, megabits, or gigabits also needs to be taken into consideration.
4. Antenna: It is preferable to choose a wireless AP with a booster antenna when making a purchase.
