Wireless Manager Deployment Flexibility

As a Cloud based service, Wireless Manager offers you an easier choice of how to establish, provision and manage your wifi network.

Choose to manage the network yourself, or consider a fully managed service route as provided by experienced and dedicated third party IT service providers.

Do It Yourself (DIY) or Outsourced?

Cloud based services delivery can offer multiple advantages over traditional DIY investment implementations. With the right Service Level Agreement's (SLA’s) in place, hand over the management hassle and IT skills headache to a service partner to establish, provision and manage elements or the whole service on your behalf. Let them focus on the technology, whilst you focus on business outcomes rather than SSID configurations and firmware updates.

Either way, traditional DIY investments or the cloud offer respective and compelling advantages. With a diverse and extensive partner community, be sure to leverage a wealth of experience and skills to help you explore and discover which path makes sense for you.

When Cloud Wifi as an Outsourced Managed Service Solution might make more sense

  • You don’t want staff to be distracted with managing the wireless network, but focused on your raison d’etre
  • You would prefer to leverage the expertise and skills of an outside partner with agreed performance based SLA’s
  • You would prefer a concise, regular management summary report of the health of the network, rather than undertaking network monitoring, analysis and management of service parameters, metrics or alerts yourself
  • You have limited or no dedicated IT Skills or resources to manage a centralized wifi network
  • There may be a requirement for 24/7* support or a variance of standard business hours that can’t easily be staffed yourself (*Service Provider SLA dependent)
  • You don’t want to have the burden or headache of any implementation

When Cloud Wifi as DIY Managed Service Solution might make more sense

  • You want total control of all management, including monitoring, configurations and a transparent view of the network status.
  • You want to manage and vary your own service reporting parameters and metrics
  • You want to have full control over chargeable hotspots / guest access
  • Cloud fits with your budgets where an on premise controller and / or outsourced provision route may not
