Not all Wi-Fi is going to help you meet your business goals. Your customers and employees expect Wi-Fi like they are starting to expect that you have electricity. It is quickly becoming a utility that when done correctly increases your brand and when done poorly leaves your business looking a bit behind the times.
Speed and performance matter but you also can’t leave security out of the equation. It’s easy to hack Wi-Fi so make sure you have it set up by someone who knows what they are doing.
In the real world you need to think past just being able to connect via Wi-Fi. Besides speed and security you need to consider the vast number of devices needing to connect. Your Wi-Fi should be designed and configured to address the growing demand for high volume and diversity of devices that are looking to connect.
This is a two part question. First you need to understand how to secure your business Wi-Fi to keep your business data safe and secondly how to securely use public Wi-Fi at airports, hotels, coffee shops and the like.
