You are a senior technology analyst for an IT support company of approximately 30 employees. Your company assists small business in selecting, implementing, enhancing and managing their IT infrastructure. Most of your customers have less than 100 employees and produce total annual revenues of $250,000 – $5,000,000. Their IT budgets seldom reach above $30,000 for support and capital expenditures consistently need to be a specific line item. Your company doesn’t focus on a specific business vertical; your niche is the size of the company.
The sales representatives have been getting many questions from customers about transitioning to Wi-Fi as their primary medium for LAN connectivity. The president of your company would like you to prepare a guide for the sales reps. The guide should briefly explain the advantages and disadvantages of using Wi-Fi, and provide some guidelines as to when Wi-Fi is an appropriate solution. You should include at least (3) online articles for the sales reps to read for background information. This will allow you to keep your document to less than three pages.
Before approaching you, the company president read the article, http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/wi-fi-vs-ethernet-which-should-you-use-and-why/, and specifically wants you to discussion speed, reliability and security in your document. You should also include other factors and considerations you feel are important.
All sources, including your textbook, should be properly cited and your document should follow the standard IEEE Style Manual.
