Receiver Sensitivity

Receiver sensitivity refers to how weak an input signal can be to successfully transmit or receive data. Sensitive receivers mean that weaker signals can be broadcast. There are some reasons why a more sensitive receiver may be necessary, such as if a weaker wireless network is available.

More sensitive and powerful receivers are more expensive. A small business will want to see how sensitive a receiver they may need before making a purchase. This can ensure that a business owner isn't wasting their money. Most small business owners will find that the equipment which comes with their IT infrastructure is more than adequate.
