Benefits of wireless networking at work place is long established but due to lack of cost effective, SMB's requirement centric WiFi solution, most small businesses depend on off-the-shelf access points (APs). In this way, though they are able to get the obvious benefits of wireless, unmanaged wireless gears and shared wireless security are invitation to types of problems businesses are often unware of.
CloudiFi's Cloud Defined WiFi Networking (CDWNs) addresses all problems mentioned above and help businesses focus on thier core work. To learn more see our case study for small businesses.
WiFi hotspot service providers such as hotel, cafe, restaurnats etc. often use open wireless configuration. It means user can connect to WiFi network without requiring any wireless security key. Access to the internet is controlled using a web based captive portal. A WiFi network deployment without any encryption at connection layer and user authentication via web based portal makes the service vulnerable and brings serious liability issues to the service providers.
CloudiFi helps in keeping interests of both hotspot users and providers aligned by providing cloud defined secured WiFi hotspot solution. Hotspot users are authenticated and internet access limit is provisoned based on unique security credential. It helps in making browser based authentication obselete which often creates confusion among uninformed hotspot users. To learn more, please check our WiFi hotspot case study.
