Wi-Fi deployment in enterprises helps them to reduce the cost of network wiring, enables easy and quick maintenance and support of the entire network, provides mobility to the employees, and gives boost to the concept of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in the work environment. However, in residential premises, installing the wireless access point converts the premises into a Wi-Fi zone and offers seamless connectivity in the entire house for all the smart devices. Major restraint in deploying Wi-Fi is lack of security over the network.
