With wireless technology you can forget about the cables. Routers or gateways allow you to access the Internet, and also enable you to share music, photos, movies, games, printers and scanners.
It sounds easy, right? Just plug in a router and away you go! Well, it's a bit more complicated than that in a business environment. While the home computer network is usually spread out over a few rooms, the corporate wireless network can be quite extensive. Medical centers, for example, have wireless networks configured for communication over a city block. Think about the number of devices and what you have to consider with such a mammoth project. Wireless security is critical.
