The capital cost of Wi-Fi controllers may prohibit retail stores, offices, schools and hospitals from providing free Wi-Fi access for staff, visitors and customers.
SilverNet says that its recently launched, Cloud managed Mesh Wi-Fi product overcomes this price barrier by providing a method of configuring, controlling and monitoring Wi-Fi access points without the need for controller hardware. It achieves this by a Cloud based software management tool called SilverCloud which enables Wi-Fi radios to be collectively managed regardless of their physical location, via a browser on a PC, tablet or even a smartphone.
Keith Newton, SilverNet’s Business Development Manager, said: “For small to medium size applications, the cost of controller hardware can quite often double the price of a Wi-Fi project. By introducing a Cloud based solution we are aiming to make it affordable for many thousands of businesses and organisations to have on-site Wi-Fi, including education, healthcare, industrial, retail, hospitality and temporary events type applications. The added bonus is that SilverCloud software features an ultra easy to use on-screen dashboard which eliminates the complexity normally associated with the management of Wi-Fi.”
The British company specialises in the design and manufacture of rugged wireless networking products for the transmission of video, as well as voice and data.
The wireless solutions include Point to Point, Point to Multipoint, MESH and Backhaul options. SilverNet wireless solutions can boast a system uptime of at least 99.999 per cent.
