Wired or Wireless Connections?

Wired or Wireless Connections?

Wired or Wireless Connections?

It hasn’t been long since connectivity required an actual physical connection between the connecting endpoints. This made a wired connection the de facto option for businesses. However, now that wireless connectivity is so widely available, businesses now have a choice… but which is the better option? Let’s compare wired or wireless connections to see which is better for you.

Wired or Wireless Connections: Hardwired?

Security

A direct connection is more secure than one that is broadcast over the airwaves. These can be snagged in transit much more easily. Therefore, if security is paramount, a wired connection is the better option by default. That said, there are ways to secure your wireless connection, utilizing a VPN.

Speed

Wired connections are also much faster than a wireless one. Whether data is being communicated within your business network or to and from the Internet, it is faster. In terms of efficiency, the wired connection comes out on top.

Stability

Besides infrastructure failure, the only way you can lose a wired connection is if the wire is unplugged. This stability not only makes them more reliable; it contributes to the consistency of the aforementioned higher speeds.

Wired or Wireless Connections: Wireless?

Convenience

The lack of cables that a wireless connection requires makes Internet access simpler for a business to implement. Without the need to adapt any existing infrastructure to run wires, it is far easier to add, subtract, and move users around as need be.

Mobility

Wi-Fi’s inherent mobility works so well for businesses. A user can pick up what they’re doing and bring it with them if they have the right device. This is more practical to implement in the workplace, especially if collaboration requires meetings to happen in various places in the office.

Scope

Wireless connection enables work to be done on a much wider scale. On a related note, businesses that interact with the public regularly can configure their Wi-Fi to offer guest functionality. This enables these businesses to offer their patrons a convenient perk.

Why Hybrid May Be Best

This is the real important takeaway: you don’t have to choose between wired and wireless connectivity.

Embracing both options can effectively negate the shortcomings of either. This will improve your business’ capability to get work done. It all comes down to your business’ individual needs and situation.
