Today’s most popular technology in telecommunications is a wireless connection. A wireless connection has better mobility, more convenient access, and other benefits. However, don’t jump on it too quickly; business owners should not discount how valuable a wired connection is. Here are the top four examples of the benefits of having a wired connection.
Wired connections are much more secure than wireless. Unfortunately, as convenient as wireless connections are, they are under constant threat from a security breach. Wired connections, on the other hand, offer a much safer alternative. Wired connections are a self-contained network, and the only realistic way of breaching it is by someone else plugging directly into it.
Like an Ethernet cable, wired connections are much more reliable. Wireless connections can often have a slow connection, whereas a wired network is always connected into your service. This greatly reduces the chances of disconnection. Furthermore, the speed of your connection does not typically vary from day to day.
Simple Set Up
Wired connections are almost always much simpler to set up. While wireless connections are often more convenient for mobility, they can prove tricky to set up. Wired connections, on the other hand, are as easy as plugging it in.
Wireless connections have around a maximum range of 250 feet in the perfect conditions (although insufficient hardware, interference from separate devices, and physical obstacles such can significantly decrease this distance). Wired connections, however, can stretch up to 330 feet without loss of quality. Oftentimes, businesses that have a lot of space to cover have no other choice but to select a wired connection over the wireless option.
