Cloud WiFi

Hi folks! So you’re interested in a centralized wireless solution, but you don’t want to invest in on premise gear?

Luckily there are options with the cloud! There are many cloud providers out there that can offer you acccess points for your business but with no need to purchase anything. Instead, you can just pay a monthly fee to have it installed and setup for you.

This takes the cost to an operational one instead of a capital cost. Basically an IaaS model, Cloud WiFi allows you to have all the benefits, without any of the maintenance headaches.

The controller is in the cloud, but your access points are mounted locally and all data stays local and does not go to the remote site. Only control plane traffic traverses between your business and your cloud provider.
