Wi-Fi Makes For Productive Workers
By: MarkJ - 14 November, 2003 (9:10 AM)

Companies that deploy broadband wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) networks for employees can expect increased productivity, combined with reduced network administration costs, in return. So says the '2003 Wireless LAN Benefits Study':

The 2003 poll of some 400 US medium and large organizations using wireless is an update of a study originally conducted in 2001. it found that WLANs gave end users the ability to be connected to the network, on average, 3.5 more hours per day - up from 1.75 hours in 2001.

The increase in network connection time makes staff almost a third more productive than they would have been if they had been tied to a wired infrastructure, the research claims.

According to NOP/Cisco, deployment of business WLANs in employees' homes, as well as significant hot spot usage while on the move, created time savings of almost 80 minutes per employee per working day - an increase of almost 30 minutes per day over 2001.
