What is a Wi-Fi Access Point?

Often abbreviated as AP, an access point is a networking device that broadcasts a wireless local area network (or WLAN) to provide wireless connections.

For businesses and public spaces offering Wi-Fi access to guests, clients, and employees, the number of connected devices to the wi fi hotspot can add up quickly. Access points are what makes managing a high volume of simultaneously connected devices possible, and scalable.

Depending on a number of variables such as building structure, the number of simultaneous users, the nature of Wi-Fi usage, neighbouring networks, etc., you will need to plan the wireless solution in order to deliver the best performance at the best cost.
