Managed Wireless LAN Services
With the majority of Wi-Fi connectivity occurring indoors, for services providers, extending branded broadband services into the enterprise is of major interest.
This interest comes from the opportunity to bundle a managed WLAN service with broadband access or through the integration of WLANs with existing managed or unmanaged wired LANs.
Vertical segments, such as retail, healthcare, manufacturing and public venue) view mobility within the organization’s facilities is an essential part of job performance, which makes them strong candidates for being "early adopters.
Such organizations are receptive to managed 802.11 services as WLAN deployments can be quite costly and complex. IT departments may simply not have the time or expertise to deal with issues such as proper antenna placement, channel selection and security. This creates an opportunity for carriers to bundle WLAN managed services with their existing connectivity services, particularly since many carriers already have customer premises equipment in place.
The best opportunity for providers, particularly those already offering managed access and LAN services, lie in offering reliable managed wireless LAN services that offer customers peace-of-mind with respective to performance, reliability and security. Because of this, the managed services market requires a more robust managed WLAN service offering.
