Cloud management makes for easier hotspot rollouts
UK-based company Managed Connections has launched its new platform as a service (PaaS) offering to provide an easy way for private and public sector organisations to set up their own wireless hotspots.
Derek Williamson, Managed Connections' Commercial Director says, "Our research shows that offering Wi-Fi hotspots will increase customer loyalty, footfall and sales which is a huge benefit to people using our services. The official Managed Connections launch comes after almost four years of research and development and on the back of this we have some really exciting additions planned for the upcoming months. We have made getting 100 percent legally compliant and highly controlled Wi-Fi and wireless broadband into a variety of venues really simple, and we can show clients how to use our platform and services as tools to bring in more customers and how to make money from them. We’re really excited by this aspect of our offering and with our systems, there is now a choice of fully managed Wi-Fi hotspot and ISP packages to suit any sized commercial venue".
Part of the attraction of the cloud-based PaaS solution is that it can be used to seamlessly integrate control of any type of network from simple Wi-Fi hotspots to entire building or community networks.
With the added benefit of 24-hour support, this aims to give businesses maximum flexibility in responding to demand for network services.
