What to Look For in Your Business’ Wi-Fi Router

Your business depends quite a bit on its wireless connectivity, which means that your choice of router is an important consideration. Let’s review some of the key points that you need to remember as you select the router that best fits your needs.

Security

A business router and a home router will have considerably different requirements in terms of its security. While this isn’t minimizing the importance of your own security, your business will have a lot of your data, along with that of your employees and clients. Losing this data could result in serious legal trouble, so it is important to ensure that your router is configured for maximum security.

First, a firewall should be in place to help secure your incoming traffic, as any connection your Wi-Fi router makes to the Internet could let in a threat. An enterprise-level firewall is essential to help mitigate these risks.

Size

When you are preparing for your business’ wireless, the size of your wireless network should come into your considerations. This should include not only your workstations, it should also cover any additional Internet-connected devices, like your laptops, point-of-sale systems, tablets, connected printers, and other mobile devices. It can be useful to balance your needs by hardwiring those devices that can be to reduce the load on your Wi-Fi connection.

Support

Finally, your router needs to balance out the other conditions of your business, like if you have multiple locations to connect. This may require you to adjust the kind of router you are using. A branch router works well for an internal network, while an edge router can send information between networks.

This is just one consideration. If your business has a large footprint or is near other business and personal networks, or even needs to support regular guest users, the support your wireless Internet needs will be impacted.
