WLAN – connect wirelessly
WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) enables exchange of data between users by radio waves, without cable connections. Currently, the most commonly used name for such a solution is WiFi.
How does it work?
Step 1 Design, which is a key stage for the success of the entire implementation process. It requires taking measurements and selecting individual elements of the network and its parameters depending on the purpose, place of use, and user’s requirements.
Step 2 Installation of devices, implementation and performance tests.
Step 3 Configuration in accordance with the requirements, while meeting the requirements in the scope of security and ease of access, as well as optimization tests.
Step 4 Every user who has access to the WiFi network gains access to the resources of the corporate network and the Internet after prior identification and verification. There are different levels of network security – digital certificates, data encryption, permanent passwords, one-time passwords.
WiFi is an ideal solution for:
- increasing the mobility of employees within an enterprise or an organization in terms of access to data in the LAN network (no dependence on a cable connection),
- scanners used in warehouses and production floors,
- wireless VoIP telephony,
- connecting tablets and smartphones,
- companies that do not plan to invest in wiring or have insufficient wiring,
- point-to-point radio link connections, for example for wireless connection of several buildings,
- organizing wireless access to the network for employees,
providing added value to customers of your company or organization in the form of free wireless Internet, e.g. in shopping centres, vacation centres, training and conference centres, museums, tourist attractions and in cities.
- Medical facilities.
- Hotels, restaurants, cafés.
- Administrators of residential buildings.
- Wireless access to the network and intercommunication for many stationary and mobile devices.
- Convenience and scalability – easy access to the network for subsequent devices connected to WiFi, a possibility of modification in terms of changing conditions in a given location.
- High security of data.
- Easy access to WiFi from devices of any type – their widespread use causes that they are equipped by default with a network card enabling the use of WiFi.
- Simplicity of management (centralized management), access control, and statistics.
