With the introduction of 802.11n, WLAN radio data rates of 300Mbps and peak throughput not too far behind have propelled the speed of wireless networks past wired Ethernet. With the increase in bandwidth comes the prospect of eliminating the vast majority of wireline switch ports. Wireless radios can blast networking connectivity through walls and cover an increasingly mobile workforce, saving the enterprise money in the short term and unlocking the potential for productivity gains in the long term. Collaboration increases as employees lose their tethers to their desks and start to move to where the work is actually being done.
