31 May The Security Benefits of Point-to-Point Wireless Technology
As we explored in the previous article, wireless technology is an effective – and relatively easy – technology to add to your organization. The connection between the two points is achieved through a radio link and can be referred to as a P2P network. You can achieve a short-range link all the way to a long-range link that works over 70km away. We have explored some of the business benefits but, arguably security, is the part of your business where it will have the most influence. Knowing the security benefits of a Point-to-Point connection may open your eyes to just how beneficial it can be for your business.
1. Better Reliability
Taking an educated guess, the majority of your work is digitized in the modern world, and this makes a reliable network connection one of the biggest concerns for your business. You are entirely reliant on the physical infrastructure of your building to achieve good and consistent network coverage, and, if your company spans more than one location in a town or city, for example, this can be particularly difficult.
With a Point-to-Point connection this can easily be overcome, you can unite all of your business buildings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You no longer have to worry about the signal suddenly dropping or going down for long periods of time – this round-the-clock connection allows you to easily keep track of your business happenings, strengthening your company’s security.
Point to Point connections are much cheaper than installing cables underground or investing in high-speed links between your company sites. This allows you to reinvest that capital in the security of your organization and the safeguarding of the new network – when you realise how convenient it is, you can spend time worrying about more pressing matters, and not when the engineers are arriving to rip up the car park.
3. Ideal for every business
There are terrains that make network connection installations easier, but, on the other hand, there are others – rocky hills, seashores, and environments with harsh weather – that don’t. A Point-to-Point connection makes it easy to establish a connection between places regardless of the terrain. Areas like the ones we just mentioned could be extortionately expensive to invest in if cables need to be laid beneath the surface, making Point to Point connections the saving grace for businesses in these locations. A wireless connection makes it possible to strengthen the security of those in remote places and those with locations on site that aren’t easy to monitor – a Point to Point wireless connection can connect to CCTV cameras for example, meaning that you can keep an eye on the vehicles in the car park, thereby reducing the risk of break-ins and theft.
This is by far the biggest draw of Point-to-Point wireless connections – put simply, it is easy! The cost of the structure is low, making it easier to repair over time. It being so simple makes the risk of security breaches low (if a security add on, update, or repair is necessary), and it’s cheap to complete. Why wouldn’t you do it right away?
As you can see, a Point-to-Point wireless connection can revolutionize the way you and your team work, whilst improving the level of security you can achieve.
