What is the prod­uct?

Linksys re­cently launched Linksys Cloud Man­ager, a cloud-hosted Wi-fi Man­age­ment Plat­form pur­pose-built for small busi­ness en­vi­ron­ments that re­duces costs and in­creases op­er­a­tional ef­fi­cien­cies, in the United Arab Emi­rates. The so­lu­tion of­fers cen­tralised vis­i­bil­ity, man­age­ment and con­trol of a wire­less net­work with­out the cost and com­plex­ity of tra­di­tional hard­ware con­trollers, over­lay soft­ware, or an­nual host­ing costs.

Why is it im­por­tant?

The Linksys Cloud Man­ager en­ables IT ad­min­is­tra­tors and other au­tho­rised users to re­motely mon­i­tor, man­age and trou­bleshoot sin­gle or dis­trib­uted wire­less net­works in real time via a sin­gle dash­board and sign-on. This plat­form helps pro­vide se­cure re­mote ac­cess to Linksys Busi­ness Wire­less-ac Ac­cess Points.

Why is it dif­fer­ent?

There is a gap in the Mid­dle East mar­ket for af­ford­able, busi­ness­grade cloud-man­aged Wifi man­age­ment plat­forms de­signed specif­i­cally for SMBS. Cur­rent of­fer­ings are ei­ther built with con­sumer-grade hard­ware or with ex­pen­sive, en­ter­prise fea­tures with pro­hib­i­tive an­nual host­ing fees. In­deed, a com­mon com­plaint is en­ter­prise of­fer­ings are com­plex and over-en­gi­neered.
