Advantages and disadvantages of wireless networks

Every gadget be it a mega computer, or a laptop down to the simplest of phones has both its positive and negative performances.

Wireless network pros

  1. Availability and access

No adaptors or extra cables are needed while accessing the office net due to the extensive tech that enables communication even on the move for its users.

Wireless WI-FI cons

  1. Transmission Speeds

The wired network transmits faster due to the Ethernet cable’s efficiency. Since wireless networks do not have a physical transmission, it tends to lag and perform inefficiently.

  1. Problems During Installation

During installation, nearby networks may interfere leading to poor communication in some cases and complete loss of communication in extreme cases. Using the same network technology in the same structure brings about the existence of electromagnetic interference.

  1. Security

Bugs, hacks and software attacks are extensively expected for any unauthorized users could breach the internet connection. Encrypted security detail should be practiced.
