NETGEAR has launched a flexible solution for small to mid-sized organisations to manage, monitor, maintain, and monetise their wireless networks. NETGEAR is launching Business Central 2.0 — the final mode of its Quad-Mode options for wireless management — on the ProSAFE WAC720 and WAC730 Business Dual Band Wireless-AC Access Points. Business Central 2.0 is a Cloud-based services platform with additional functionalities built specifically for Managed Service Providers (MSPs).

The next evolution of the NETGEAR Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) wireless management platform, Business Central 2.0 offers agile organisations the flexibility of managing their wireless networks directly, or outsourcing to third parties who manage WiFi as a service. It takes the hassle out of managing multiple locations independently and brings all the wireless access points (APs) and users under one management umbrella — whether across one, dozens or even thousands of sites.

“Traditionally, wireless vendors offer different access points based on deployment types — small to large to remote sites. This makes it difficult and costly when end-users need to update APs as their business grows,” said Chris Hemmings, Managing Director, Penguin Internet, Ltd., Managed Service Provider in UK. “I truly embrace the flexibility of NETGEAR Quad-Mode Management. It enables me to help migrate my customers to different operation modes as their business grows with investment protection in mind. NETGEAR is the only vendor I have seen that has delivered this innovative approach to product building.”
