Advantages of WiFi Networks / WLANs
The most significant advantage of WiFi networks. Access shared resources without looking for a cable and a place to plug in to a power source.
Extended Range of Coverage
Coverage of a WLAN node can be extended by using access points.
Greater Ease of Use
Very little information is needed to take advantage of a WLAN because it is transparent to a user’s network operating system.
WLAN system installation can be fast and easy and can eliminate the need to pull cable through walls and ceilings. Furthermore, wireless LAN enables networks to be set up where wire installation is impossible.
Wireless/WiFi networks can support a great number of nodes and large areas by adding access points and extending coverage.
Reduced cost of ownership
Particularly in dynamic environments requiring frequent modifications’ thanks to minimal cabling and installation costs per device and user. WLANs simplify moving, additions, and changes, the indirect costs of user downtime and administrative overhead are reduced.
