Gone are the days when businesses offering Wi-Fi internet access was seen as extra convenient. Today, it is an expected requirement to provide comfort, convenience and confidence to your patients. With that in mind, you need to offer secure Wi-Fi access that is reliable, fast, secure, and easy to use.
Ensure That Your Connection Is Locked Down
When dealing with a Wi-Fi connection, you need to understand that you require a different Wi-Fi for your main office and another one for your guests. Therefore, you should use a different network for your gadgets and your guest. You also need to ensure that your connection is secure.
Note that with a guest network, anyone can get in. If you do not leave it secure, it might lead to access to someone with malicious intent. Thus, they might end up compromising your device
Make sure that the internal network is properly locked down. It is also essential for you to make sure that you do not give your password publicly. You can also make sure that the connection is secure by regularly updating the password. If you are not sure about your existing security, we can audit it for you and look for vulnerabilities.

You Might Not Need a New Hardware
The good news is that you will not have to establish a new access point as long as you have routers and capable access points. You can set up a guest Wi-Fi. This is beneficial as you will not have to invest in new hardware, and you will also not have to worry about installing new hardware.
But you will need to consider the much bandwidth your existing wireless network allows. Most modern access points can be split into bandwidth usage between internal connections and guests. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the network can handle the guest traffic without interfering with internal operations. The best way of doing this is by limiting the amount of bandwidth allocated to the guests.
Have Policies for the Guest
You should not deploy a free network to your patients without setting some ground rules. You need to ensure that you have them of service that your patients need to adhere to. You should also be able to monitor any fraudulent activities. You should also set time restrictions so that unauthorized users cannot get into your network. Our company will also set the system to ensure that you do not have anyone accessing it from the outside.
Setting a guest network does not have to be a costly venture. However, it needs you to offer more than just enabling the feature of your wireless routers. Our company will start with an audit review of the existing network and help you set up the security and the best practices you need to keep your visitors and your patients both safe and happy.
