This day and age, it is hard to imagine a business that runs successfully without the Internet. It’s the lifeblood of any sustainable organization, and lately, it goes far beyond having a website and being able to send emails.

Most businesses need the Internet to function. If you are running an e-commerce business then having, or not having the Internet is life or death. If you are running a brick and mortar business, then chances are you use VoIP for your telecommunication needs.

These examples of how having the Internet for your business are extremely important, but the Internet dependability still goes even further! While the possibilities of what the Internet can do for your business are endless, this blog will stop at WiFi.

WiFi is so important these days. It enables most devices to access the Internet wirelessly! But sometimes WiFi signals can weaken if you are too far out of range. This is a big problem for multi-floor businesses and businesses that have large warehouses.

We all use WiFi to deliver the Internet to our cell phones and even our laptops, but more and more, we are seeing businesses using WiFi phones! For these businesses, it is imperative that there is a strong WiFi signal throughout the whole building.

That is where the Grandstream GWN7610 WiFi Access Point comes in! This handy device can be installed to extend WiFi coverage to where you need it most, like your huge warehouse! If your warehouse employees are using WiFi phones to communicate to get the job done, then you may want to invest the GWN7610 to ensure great WiFi coverage.
