What are the benefits of a fully managed WiFi package?
WiFi infrastructure is extremely dynamic and upgrades are needed often. To avoid your network crashing, upgrades need to be done smoothly and correctly. Using a managed WiFi solution means you can rely on rapid changes or provisioning of new devices.
Does your business have the time, capacity and resources to have the best understanding of your wireless software? The answer is-probably not. You can reduce the load on your dedicated on-site IT staff by using professional help from a service provider. They’ll do prompt troubleshooting to prevent costly downtime and ensure your business remains productive.
WiFi is a broadcast medium and can therefore be insecure. You significantly reduce the chance of suffering a security breach by handing these issues to specialist staff. Managed WiFi offers layered security – encryption, centralised authentication, tracking of users and devices, intrusion detection and much more. We’d also recommend installing antivirus software; our chosen provider is ESET.
The cost to build a wireless network from scratch and carry out routine upgrades is expensive. Initially, managed WiFi seems like a hefty investment, but you reap the rewards in the long run saving time and resources, as you focus on the things that really matter in your business.
Simple to use
A managed WiFi should enable your WiFi system to be easier to view, understand and control for your staff through easy-to-use monitoring dashboards. You should be able to use this information to understand your business better and make quick decisions.
Greater visibility means you can utilise the information you’re given about both your staff and customers. It increases customer loyalty as you can gather information to understand customer behaviours and use this in your business strategy.
It improves employee productivity by allowing staff to freely move away from their desks to a new workspace. It decreases staff stress which occurs when the network goes down.
A tailored service
All of our managed IT projects use hardware with proven performance that will be tailored to your current usage and future requirements. This reduces the risk of downtime on the network and guarantees energy efficiency throughout the system. Once connected, you’ll be able to make use of the WiFi indoors and even outside within certain distances from the router.
After installation we will continue to monitor the speed and ensure the security software is always securing your personal data and online communications. This includes utilising a protected WiFi setup and implementing a firewall to defeat any attacks and keep your network safe.
