Wireless Access Points (WiFi AP / WAP)

What is a Wireless Access Point?
WAPs or WiFi Access Points are networking hardware devices that provide WiFi compliant devices with wireless access to a wired network. Plugged into a switch or router (or as a component of the router itself), they essentially act as transmitters and receivers of wireless network radio signals.

Advantages of using a WiFi AP

  1. Increased mobility and freedom for your workforce.
  2. Easier network expansion when your company grows.
  3. Enhanced guest access that may double as a value-added customer service.
