What is a cloud-managed Wi-Fi?

    A cloud-managed wireless local area network (cloud-managed Wi-Fi) extends all the functions of traditional WLAN controllers with the access-anywhere capabilities of cloud-managed wi-fis, and it supplements these with maximized automation and agility. Additional access points or new applications such as hotspots are easily integrated into the network, taking full account of all network policies relating to VLAN, security, bandwidth management, or client management. At the same time, a cloud-managed Wi-Fi offers administrators a graphical all-around view of the Wi-Fi status and the application-level and client-level loads on the entire network – prerequisites for proactive, around-the-clock troubleshooting.

    Full overview and agility in your Wi-Fi

    A cloud-managed Wi-Fi the setup and management of your WLAN infrastructure to a new level: not only do you minimize the time you spend on configuration, subsequent adjustments, and customization of your Wi-Fi, while benefiting from the highest IT security features, but you also gain full control over its quality and optimization and shorten your response time in the event of faults.

    Maximum agility & versatility

    Replace manual individual device configuration with automated network orchestration by switching to a LANCOM cloud-managed Wi-Fi – without any additional WLAN controller:

    • Network administrators only set the framework conditions for the Wi-Fi design, e.g., the SSIDs, the authentication method and, if required, the bandwidth restrictions
    • Auto-configuration and zero-touch deployment: Fully automatic and maximally secure configuration and rollout of every single network component involved for any number of access points and Wi-Fi routers at all desired locations
    • Effortless, fast configuration adjustments: New settings or firmware updates are rolled out to all desired devices at the click of a mouse
