Number of devices supported
Each business needs to be aware of how many devices connect to its core network. Sometimes when staff know the WiFi password, they will connect their personal devices such as phones and tablets even if that is against company policy. This can affect the performance of your network significantly and introduce security risks. It is vital to have control over who is connected to your core network which gives access to the business digital resources. All other devices can be connected to segregated Guest network isolated from the main company resources.
