Defining key terms for understanding the basics of the technology that keeps your small business connected

You probably rarely think about it, but every time you receive an email from a colleague who’s travelling or a request for information from a customer via your website, you have a router to thank for making that connection. Likewise, wireless routers let you access the company network from anywhere in the office, allowing you to be more productive. Routers are essential for keeping your company connected to your business partners, customers, and remote employees.

In this installment of our Talkin’ Tech series, we define key terms to help you understand the basics of wireless and routing. If there’s a term we didn’t include that you’d like defined, please let us know!
