Wireless Technology Accuracy of Information Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :

The most important one that stands out is the security issue.

Today's global business environment is characterized not only by its increased mobility and the need to be able to quickly react to all stimuli on the market (all these issues that encourage the use of a wireless network), but also by the value of information.

Information is, according to many, the most important and valuable asset a company can possess.

The problem with a wireless network is that it diminishes security and, in an era where information is essential, this can lead to security glitches that might damage information control in the organization and might lead to information leaks to the outside. If security becomes the primary objectives to be reached, then firewalls and other security elements need to be installed, which technically will tend to reduce speed. If the speed of access to the network is significantly reduced, then obviously the increase in productivity and efficiency will be seriously diminished.

In terms of disadvantages, we should also point out towards the fact that building a wireless network is not necessarily a cheap operation, despite the operational cost reductions for the future we have already mentioned. Indeed, especially if we are talking about a large wireless network and a network on which security devices are available, then the investment will also be reasonably high. Further more, the depreciation period will tend to be higher.

Technically, the wireless network also provides significant problems in terms of quality and reliability, because of possible interferences from other electronic sources. Obviously, the benefits and advantages of constant access and connectivity become void if the information is blurred, if access is not constant and there are interferences etc.

On the other hand, many individuals working in the IT sector have completely denied any correlation between the performance of wireless connectivity and natural weather conditions. As such, Julia A. Bowers stated in the interview conducted that weather conditions do not affect the wireless speed of the data transfer.

The interview also showed that the wireless networking system is already spreading throughout the country, which means that any geographical correlation, relating the performance or availability of wireless network connections to a certain geographical area (the urban area, for example) is now almost inexistent. Throughout the United States, wireless networks are available, not to mention hot spots where the Internet is available in cafes, bars or hotels.

Conclusions

An analysis over this presentation points out that wireless networking has become one of the necessities of the business world in the 21st century. Starting with the most important characteristics of the business environment, things such as the need for information availability and accessibility, as well as the need to be constantly connected and able to communicate and exchange data and information have become a necessity and have started to be the competitive advantage companies nowadays need in order to remain profitable.

Despite inherent problems that might appear, such as the need to have a secure system, a system where company information is protected from the outside, our conclusions point out towards the fact that organizations in the 21st century can only survive on the market. Because productivity and low costs are a key factor for competitiveness, wireless networking is likely to increase profitability for the organizations as well.
