But wireless technologies and wireless initiatives have continued to evolve, pressuring the WLAN you have today and presenting numerous challenges:

Shoppers’ expect high-performance in-store Wi-Fi access

When today’s shoppers step into your store, they expect you to provide complimentary access to the store’s Wi-Fi network. They are looking to help control their cellular data fees and eliminate the connection issues that can occur inside a retail store. But providing guest access creates several issues:

  • Ease of access – You need to be able to allow shoppers to easily sign in to access your WLAN
  • Security – You need to be able to keep your network secure, despite the fact that you are offering open public access to your WLAN
