Even though Bhubaneswar based WeFe Technologies have mastered the technique of providing broadband Internet in Bhubaneswar and adjoining areas, offering multiple options that include Cable Internet, Rural or Remote Internet, Leased Line Internet, Wi-Fi Internet and many more, you cannot escape the inherent rigors of high speed broadband, regardless of whosoever may provide it for you.
However, let us take a sneak peek at some of the advantages and disadvantages of Broadband which refers to high-speed data transmission in which a single cable can carry a large amount of data at once, while on account of its multiple channel capacity, it has replaced the Baseband, the single-channel technology primarily used in most networks.
Advantages of Broadband Internet access
- Connection speed is almost 100 times faster than dial-up connection. As a result you can download picture files, software in seconds or minutes instead of several hours. Additionally, online gaming becomes a child’s play when using broadband internet access.
- It least affects the phone line. For DSL internet access, you may use the same phone line for both voice/fax and data transmission. In case of cable Internet access, you are connected to the Internet through the cable network. This means your phone line is never occupied while you are connected to the Internet.
- Since the Internet connection is always on, it becomes a matter of great advantage.
- Since you do not need to dial the access number, there is no question of getting any busy tone.
- As broadband Internet offers unlimited access, you would not be charged for the connection duration.
- Apart from providing you with high speed Internet access, broadband internet also provides cost effective phone service via VoIP technology.
Disadvantages of Broadband Internet access
- High monthly fee, as compared to nominal charges for dial-up Internet access.
- Higher security risk than dial up connection. Personal firewall often needed to protect the computer.
- Not all phone wires are fit for DSL services. Becomes difficult in rural or remote areas.
- Some cable TV networks are not fit for cable internet access. In remote or rural areas becomes even more difficult.
Now, if you feel that wireless networking (Wi-Fi) is ‘Roses, roses all the way; with myrtle mixed in my path like mad’, you may be wrong. Though Wi-Fi has scores of advantages, it also has its share of disadvantages or pitfalls, whatever you may call.
Advantages of Wi-Fi
- Convenience: The no wire characteristics of such networks allow users to access network resources from almost any convenient location within their primary networking environment, such as the home or office.. With the increasing saturation of laptop-style computers, this is particularly relevant today.
- More mobility: With the appearance of public wireless networks, users can access the internet even outside their normal work environment. Most chain coffee shops, restaurants, etc offer customers wireless connection to the internet at nominal or no cost.
- Higher productivity: Users connected to a wireless network can maintain a nearly constant affiliation with their desired network even when they move from site to site. For a business, this means that an employee can potentially be more productive as his or her work can be accomplished from any convenient location.
- Easier deployment: Basic setup of an infrastructure-based wireless network requires no more than a single access point. Wired networks, on the other hand, not only have additional cost but also the complexity of actual physical cables being run to numerous locations (which can even be impossible for hard-to-reach locations within a building).
- Expandability: Wireless networks can serve ad hoc increment of clients with the existing equipment. In a wired network, additional clients would require additional wiring and related work.
Disadvantages of Wi-Fi
For a given networking situation, wireless LANs may not be suitable due to various reasons. Most of these have to do with the inherent limitations of the technology. However, here are some of the more practical issues.
- Security: In order to combat this issue, wireless networks may choose to utilize some of the various encryption technologies available. Some of the more commonly utilized encryption methods, however, are known to have weaknesses that a dedicated adversary can compromise.
- Range: The characteristic range of a common 802.11g network with standard equipment is on the order of tens of meters. While sufficient for a typical home, it will prove inadequate in a larger structure. To obtain additional range, repeaters or additional access points will have to be indented. Costs for these items can add up quickly.
- Interference: similar to radio frequency transmission, wireless networking signals are subject to a wide variety of interference, as well as complex propagation effects that are beyond the control of the network administrator.
- Poor speed: The speed on most wireless networks (typically 1-54 Mbps) is much slower than even the slowest common wired networks (100Mbps up to several Gbps).
Despite all the disadvantages and drawbacks, as enumerated above, WeFe Technologies located in Chandrasekharpur, Bhubaneswar provides best broadband connectivity through their unstinted round-the-clock service, regardless of how big or small the customer is.
