The article discusses the author's views on the growth of wireless technology and how business enterprises deal with the trend. It is cited that the evolving integration of this technology in the enterprise networks increases the demand for services that manage the new complex network infrastructure, and enterprises are turning to solution providers for expertise in the area. The author describes the significance of wireless networks by adding them as an overlay to the existing enterprise network or coupling the wireless access points to internal data transport. He has also noted that wireless could be the best alternative for solution providers to offer services.
