Editor’s Note: This article was originally posted in May 2021, but has been updated to include the latest information, including information about Wi-Fi 6E.
You may or may not have heard of Wi-Fi 6/6E. This latest iteration of wireless technology (also known as wireless standard 802.11ax) has been incorporated into a variety of access points (APs) and hardware. But it may not be the solution to all of your business IT problems.
Most business leaders would agree that their IT infrastructure is the backbone of their organization. Without technology, most businesses would be paralyzed.
Virtual private networks (VPNs) have been around since 1996, but if you are like most business leaders, you may not fully understand what they do, how they work, and whether your business needs one.
Firewalls often fall into that “out-of-sight, out-of-mind” category; quietly operating to keep your network safe without too much thought from business leaders or users. But, just like every other part of your network, firewalls need to be monitored and updated to ward off new threats.
Wireless technology is magic, right? It allows us to communicate without clunky wires. We can use it to send a joke to family, connect with work from home, or log in and access documents on our organization’s network from the road.
