The article discusses the use of sectorized antennas to enhance functions of crowded wireless fidelity(Wi-Fi) networks. Sectorization promotes cost effectiveness because it reduces interference, additional spectrum and based stations while improving quality of service, particularly of portable devices with built in Wi-Fi such as 802.11 supported handsets and cellular telephones. It utilizes higher-gain antennas which can transmit stronger signal. The technique also applies in catering triple-play services.
