“Wired or Wireless (Part 1)” – IT Support Episode 24

Hi, I’m Christian from “Northstar IT”, and this week I want to talk about wires or wireless?

So I want to put yourself in the shoes of a business owner who’s moving office. Of course this can apply at home too. You’re going to move house and you’ve got big plans for that new property and the first thing you think, we can just go wireless on everything!

Well, that’s not entirely true. A wired network runs faster and has much more bandwidth which means you can squeeze more stuff down the cables than you can through the airwaves. There are also a number of devices still commonly used which don’t work on wireless without additional bits of kit and I’ll give you a simple example, a telephone!

Yes, who’d have guessed?

A telephone, that doesn’t work on wireless. However offices are still using these sort of phones day in, day out and yet they don’t work on a wireless network. I’m sure there’s someone out there who’s going to prove me wrong and tell me that there are some of these that work on a wireless network, however, most of them do not work on a wireless network!

When it comes down to a wired network it really means it’ll work faster and better for you. There’s a simple rule I always say to any client I have this conversation with. A wireless network should be a supplement to a wired network and not a replacement.

But if you want some extra advice, speak to your IT people. I’m sure they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.

Until next time.
