What is light as a feather, consists of many small components, enables complete transparency, and can take on the most fascinating shapes?
Whatever image you have in mind now – it is likely to come very close to what the LANCOM Management Cloud (LMC) means for network management.
The answer could just as easily be: The life of an IT admin when he relies on cloud-based remote management. Less effort, noticeable relief, higher performance, and more security – network automation through cloud management takes a fair amount of weight off the shoulders of the IT department. Networks are now set up in just three simple steps and new devices are added with two smartphone scans. All network operations are monitored around the clock on clear dashboards, anomalies and errors are automatically analyzed and reported, and Wi-Fi disruptions are eliminated in a targeted and structured manner. Risks from human misconfigurations are minimized. Clear access management ensures an efficient division of labor from now on. Sounds like heaven for system administrators? All just condensed air?
The LANCOM Management Cloud does indeed have a few things in common with its metaphorical namesake: It conveys a feeling of lightness, hovers vigilantly over the IT network, can be viewed from anywhere, and is in a constant state of transition.
Have you ever had the impression that something is as light as if you were walking on air? We've taken that feeling and packed it into a network management tool.
No network is perfect. Somehow, you always wish it would be better, simpler, more secure – and cheaper. Or you rely on a cloud to manage your network and check off all four wishes at once. Why you should leave your network management to a central control software from now on, and all about the basics of the LANCOM Management Cloud, can be read here.
In the ideal world of network management, all network components are cloud-enabled and can be configured centrally from anywhere. Networks are set up quickly and securely according to the network strategy and they run smoothly. Everyone is happy. Sounds like an unattainable ideal? Not at all! The path there is only three steps away.
Who says network monitoring can't be fun? Any IT admin you ask? Ask them again as soon as they started using the LANCOM Management Cloud! The clear monitoring dashboards for WAN / VPN, WLAN, LAN, and Security / Compliance make everyday admin work enjoyable and increase security and performance in your network.
Tedious individual configurations of devices at each new location can sometimes dampen the joy of corporate growth. Fortunately, the new world of network expansion with the cloud thrives on the sophisticated LANCOM concept of a fully cloud-enabled device portfolio, smart packaging, and maximum user-friendliness.
When it comes to network security, things quickly get very dicey for the IT department. One small – absolutely human – configuration error and the pressure and guilt are immense. However, cloud-managed security is like a bodyguard, coordinating your IT security and coming up with the strongest, most advanced protections on command. Find out how the LMC keeps a protective hand over you!
What happens when you pair cloud-driven network management with a hefty dose of Wi-Fi intelligence? You get such unerring troubleshooting that it's a real boon for in-house IT. The WLAN anomaly detection of the LANCOM Management Cloud identifies potential faults before they occur, reports deviations from defined threshold values and provides concrete assistance in finding solutions.
Efficient network management distributes the responsibility for IT among several shoulders and uses the strengths of its specialists in an appreciative and reasonable manner. Thanks to the clearly defined user roles of the LANCOM Management Cloud and their practice-oriented gradations, even low IT resources are used in the best possible way and personnel failures are well cushioned.
