Wireless internetworking is becoming a ubiquitous component of business environments and has been evolving faster than its copper/wired counterparts. Luckily, security has become confident and reliable, and the management of usage and performance is now readily available. Now, companies can install wireless warehouse inventory control or guest access in a waiting room or a boardroom. Companies now rely on it as a part of getting their work done. It is no longer a “nice to have” “add on” to a wired environment.
Furthering the expansion of wireless networking is the Bring Your Own Device culture in some industries as well, which in many cases makes wireless the most comprehensive solution for the mobile devices that many people prefer to work from. This again has forced the manufacturers of wireless technologies to produce highly capable and secure wireless access to their internal networks.
