Wireless As A Managed Service
Today's enterprise is changing and adapting to one the largest global trends in technology, the Internet of Things (IoT) access explosion. WiFi is moving from being the "convenience" network to the primary access layer for almost all network capable endpoints. In addition to the wireless revolution, managed services offerings have emerged as an extremely adaptable IT strategy allowing enterprises to gain additional benefits such as highly specialized support, industry standard operations, increased cost savings
through task offloading, and experienced design and installation services to name a few.
Most IT departments will see 10 to 20 times as many wireless endpoints in the next few years as compared to what is currently connected to their WiFi Networks. In many cases these will be BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) end devices and BYOA (Bring Your Own APP) that are used for personal and corporate functions. Managing, securing, and operating the WiFi networks that enable these endpoints to function will require (If not already) full time resources that are extremely knowledgeable about wireless networks. Most IT departments will not have the ability or the proper tools in place to effectively manage and support this fast changing landscape. The combination of these factors have smart companies turning to Corsair Networks for Managed Wireless Services.
What is the difference? The difference in our service offerings depends on the size of the customer and where those customers are at in their WiFi hardware cycle. At its core the Air Control and Air Base support both provide the same support structure and model. The difference is the Air Control service contains the wireless management software and controller in the cloud, where the Air Base allows the Corsair Air Support team to manage the end customers on premise software and hardware from a secure remote connection or from a secure cloud based management console.
