Learn how easy, fast, secure business-grade Wi-Fi from HPE OfficeConnect OC20 can improve workplace satisfaction.

Blog_OfficeConnect.jpgFor small businesses, your Wi-Fi network plays an especially important role in boosting employee and business productivity. Your employees need to be connected on their work laptops as well as on the BYOD devices they bring along with them. The network needs to support a large range of devices starting with mobile phones, tablets, laptops, IP phones, security cameras, printers and point-of-sale (POS) devices.

The number of applications that are accessed on today’s Wi-Fi network has increased many times in recent years. These applications can include business apps such as: Microsoft Office365; payment apps such Square and Apple Pay; collaboration apps for instant messaging, VoIP calls and conferencing; remote file/data syncing apps; social apps and streaming apps such as YouTube and Netflix.

This means your small business Wi-Fi network can be overwhelmed with large number of applications, data and devices. Your Wi-Fi environment must be:

  • Easy to use
  • Fast
  • Secure
  • Reliable
