In the digital age, practically every business requires a well-functioning wireless network. Yet, too few businesses actually have the proper network to meet their needs. Many continue to struggle with an incompetent wireless network, assuming this is as good as it’s going to get.
Thankfully, however, it doesn’t have to be this way. Here are some tell-tale signs that it’s time to upgrade your wireless network:
You see “Page Cannot Be Displayed” errors
If you fire up Firefox or Chrome and are met with a “Page Cannot Be Displayed” sign, then chances are you’re having a Wi-Fi problem. While these issues may be short-lived, they’re symptomatic of a wider problem regarding your Wi-Fi. Long loading times mean that your network isn’t able to handle your workload, and you should look into upgrading it.
Slower speeds during busier times
Is your Wi-Fi great in the morning but terrible in the afternoon? This isn’t your Wi-Fi going through a 2pm slump. Instead, it’s a sign that it can’t handle the higher amount of traffic that arrives once everyone comes into work.
Video conferencing and phone issues
The majority of companies use voice over IP (VoIP) which relies on the internet in order to make and receive calls and video. If you notice that your phone calls keep dropping or your video conferences have poor quality, then the most likely culprit is your wireless network.
Office dead spots
If your Wi-Fi is excellent at your desk, but terrible in a conference room, then this is likely another sign that your wireless network isn’t keeping up with your demands. Office dead spots are not only irritating, but they can also lead to employees being tied to their desks just to get work done.
