Network Access without Network Management

— July 22, 2014

A managed WiFi offering from MegaPath Corp. provides distributed organizations with a secure wireless Local Area Network (LAN) and enables businesses to provide their employees and customers with secure, reliable WiFi access without the burden of having to manage the wireless network.

The turnkey solution includes the design, configuration, installation and implementation of a wireless network. It also provides proactive monitoring and management of the network and help desk support 24/7.

Built-in security protects the wireless network from attacks and automatically enforces the right access policies by type or device. Companies can also obtain business intelligence (BI) through visibility into wireless network usage—including store traffic and loyalty data.

Managing Without IT
The solution is cloud-managed for quick and easy deployment, scalability and network monitoring and management. It does not require additional training or dedicated IT staff, making it suited for small-to-medium sized businesses and large businesses with distributed sites or constrained IT resources.

Also, MegaPath's Network Operations Center continuously monitors, configures and troubleshoots customers' wireless networks.

"According to Cisco’s Visual Networking Index, more than half of all monthly traffic from mobile-connected devices will be offloaded to the fixed network by means of WiFi and other solutions by 2018," said David Williams, President, Managed Services, MegaPath. "Companies need to be prepared to provide secure Internet connectivity and LAN capabilities to their branch locations, and Managed WiFi is an extension of our managed services and networking portfolio that enables our customers to do that without increasing the management burden on their IT teams."
