We are living in a wireless society. WiFi is everywhere, in our businesses, in our homes, and the data component of our smartphones is rapidly overtaking voice capability. We are already starting to see the major cellular carriers changing their plans to primarily provide data with voice becoming secondary.
Many businesses and organizatinons added a wireless access point or two over the years as kind of an afterthought. They purchased a consumer grade (home) access point or wireless router, maybe added baseline security and that was enough. It is however becoming more and more common in businesses and organizations to have serious wireless access needs and more people are beginning to rely on wireless in order to get their job done more effectively or conveniently. Notebooks, netbooks, smart phones, and tablets are all becoming very common in the BYOD workplace, and the ability to quickly connect to the Internet or local business network is almost second nature to most people.
