Wireless: Important Technology to implement

Its really important time to go for Wireless Technology. Here Let me share some importance advantage of wireless technology, Earlier We discussed some disadvantage of wireless Systems, But truth saying that there is Solution for each and every problem. So we trust on the technology to bring up with better environment of wireless.

Stacks of equipment, piles of cables and a rats nest of telephone cords that pretty much sums up most workplaces. But quite honestly, it can get very, very ugly. More so, if you're working out of a home-office. That is the reason why new schools of design are turning to technology for answers. What is now being advocated is fairly simple. Use wireless to free up the clutter.

Why you have to Consider Wi-Fi??

You've heard of Wi-Fi way too often. An acronym for Wireless Fidelity, this technology uses radio waves to transfer data across a network. One of the biggest advantages it holds is that it makes redundant the huge amounts of cable that would otherwise be required to transfer data.

How it works is fairly simple. A radio transreceiver more popularly called an access point is mounted at a central location. Each of these access points can support anywhere between 12-20 users. What a user needs at his end is a network interface card (NIC) that allows the machine to communicate with the access point.

Most modern laptops come built in with this card. Even assuming it doesn’t, purchasing one isn’t very expensive. Much the same thing can be said of access points too. Each point comes for anything between Rs 4,000 to Rs 12,000depending on how many people you need to support. Wireless also lets you move the machine to wherever you want the office.

Clutter less with Bluetooth

The other big clutter culprits are cords connecting computers to keyboards, printers and mice. This is where Bluetooth can come handy. Bluetooth uses short range radio frequency that transmits your input output commands between devices like laptops, PCs and printers.
The basic gear you’ll need on the journey towards building a Bluetooth compatible office is getting in wireless keyboards, mouse and headsets. The two big players in the game are Logitech and Microsoft.

A little written about upside to Bluetooth devices is the fact that a good number of them are designed keeping ergonomics in mind. In the longer run, it is easier on the body and helps keep modern day afflictions like Tunnel Carpal Syndrome at bay.


Another smart move towards a wireless office is to choose a Wi-Fi enabled Multi-Functional devices (MFD). MFD’s aren’t just your run-of-the-mill printers that spew out only-text documents. Instead a single MFD can happily act as your printer, a scanner, a stand-alone photocopier, a photo printer, a camera-card reader and, often, a fax machine, too.
