With the rise in numbers of mobile workers and ‘truly’ agile working methods, an increasing number of businesses and organisations are investing in the setup of guest Wi-Fi environments at their premises.
With the primary focus on IT as an enabler, allowing visiting guests to effortlessly and securely connect to the internet the secondary and residual impact of this is the enhanced perception of guests to such work environments. I would go as far as suggesting that I would be personally surprised if I visited a client site or satellite office and found no provision for guest Wi-Fi. If an organisation is unable to provide Wi-Fi, then which other employee or guest need are they not considering? perhaps no guest toilets! Anyhow it is safe to say that for businesses and organisations, setup of Guest Wi-Fi is a must!
Here are the top benefits of setting up Guest Wi-fi:
Supporting guests to connect their device to internet and then send/ receive corporate emails and files.
Enhanced perception of your business or organisation
Supporting privacy as dedicated guest Wi-Fi keeps guests/visitors away from your corporate network thus safeguarding your data and files.
Directing guests to use a dedicated guest Wi-Fi ensures that no unplanned spike in internet use will occur, this is even more important if your organisation is dependent upon employees accessing web-apps.
