The migration to digital technologies has helped revolutionise the modern office. There is however a by-product of relying on electronic gadgetry in the workplace: excess wires and cables.
Trailing from desk to printer to scanner to server room, wires can be an unsightly (and often hazardous) addition to your working environment — adding clutter to even the most streamlined space.
Thankfully, one piece of technology has come along that could spell the end for excess wires in the office, and that’s Wi-Fi. Not just granting us faster access to the web, wireless internet lets entire offices connect without miles of cabling, meaning a less cluttered and more productive place to work.

Given the seamless integration and improved communication benefits of a wireless network, you’d expect that every business would be keen to invest in the technology. But no, some have been slow to adopt wireless networking in the office, whether through fear of it interrupting routine working practices or due to a lack of tech know-how when it comes to setting up the equipment in the first place.
If the latter is responsible for your business resisting the switch to wireless, remember, installing a wireless network in an office isn’t as complex or time-consuming as you might think. Nor is it that expensive, and the cost of investing in the technology could potentially lead to savings across your business.
