If your organisation is geographically dispersed with hundreds or even thousands of branch sites, a cloud-based WLAN might be ideal for you. A cloud approach enables a single point of management, regardless of where IT staff is physically located, eliminating the need to deploy controllers at each site. Network Administrators with dispersed, on premise controllers no longer need to worry about remote access into each site, as everything is controlled in the cloud.
Based on your requirements, the choice of solutions can offer a new class of access point, combining the elements of advanced firewall protection at the network edge with the simplicity and convenience of cloud management.
Configuration management and reporting is provided through the cloud provisioning and management portal, providing comprehensive details on per-user and device application usage, bandwidth, and traffic analysis. It includes all the management tools needed for: adds, moves, and changes; user management, including BYOD on boarding and guest access captive portal management. What’s more, the cloud service can be completely free with no recurring management license.
