A Wireless Access Point for business (also known as APs or WAPs) is a networking device that allows Wi-Fi devices to connect to a wired network. It serves as a central transmitter as well as the receiver for the wireless radio signals. The traditional wireless AP supports Wi-Fi and can be used in the home environment to support a public internet hotspot.
A wireless AP is used by business networks to accommodate a wide range of wireless devices in use, or it can be integrated into a stand-alone or wired router. The stand-alone network point is usually connected to the router using a wire to provide access to the network through radio frequency links, which in turn enable other devices to access the wired connection.
Settings like offices, businesses, and education centers where multiple devices are used to access the internet require wireless access points to maintain an efficient connection. Business class wireless access points can handle at least 60 simultaneous connections. This enables users to move freely within the facility without network interruptions, giving you the liberty to scale the number of devices supported through your network. BCS Consultants has the technical solutions to get your team members on the same page while you control all business environments with custom made wireless access points for your business.
Single radio wireless access points work in either IEEE 802.11a or b/g. Dual radio wireless access points, as the name indicates, come with two radios. One radio works in IEEE802.11a while the other works simultaneously in IEEE 802.11 b/g/n or 802.11b/g. Dual radio wireless access points are an ideal mesh networking solution for your business where you need direct and efficient data sharing.
Most modern access points are manufactured with in-built antennas. These APs provide good coverage for contained spaces and a limited number of users. For larger areas, we can provide external antenna access points for situations where the number of users is small yet the area of coverage is large. In these cases, it is better to invest in access points with external antenna for higher gain and better signal strength. The bandwidth supported in both cases is standard.
Wi-Fi technology has advanced greatly over the years. However, it is never a one-size-fits-all when it comes to businesses. A large office space with heavy traffic requires wireless access points. We at BCS have the tools and the technical process to apply the correct wireless solutions your business needs through a custom wireless AP setup.
