Centrally Managed From the Cloud
PowerCloud's Wireless Access Points are 100% managed through the cloud, centralizing remote setup, configuration and monitoring of any number of access points in one or more locations. The browser-based CloudCommand interface eliminates the complexity and cost of local maintenance, configuration and on-site wireless controllers. CloudCommand seamlessly manages multi-site and campus-wide Wi-Fi deployments with zero-touch provisioning, network-wide visibility and seamless firmware updates without complex training or specialized staff.
Powerful and Intuitive Dashboard
CloudCommand offers a powerful and intuitive dashboard to instantly view connectivity status and traffic information of multiple networks, access points and connected devices. The console provides IT administrators with a rich but simple interface for monitoring, configuring and managing Wi-Fi devices from any computer, tablet or smartphone.
MSPview™ for Multi-network Management
With MSPview™, Service Providers and IT Managers can centrally and concurrently manage multiple wireless networks across different locations, while maintaining the security and logistical isolation of each. Administrators can assign roles to staff members to balance confidentiality, security and operational access needs. MSPview makes geographically dispersed networks, such as franchises, hotels, multi-dwelling units, and health care organizations, simple and inexpensive to manage.
BYOD Management with Individual Device Authentication
Personal devices are proliferating at unprecedented pace, with new tablets, smartphones and laptops connecting every day to business networks. Individual Device Authentication (IDA) is an added level of defense that enables administrators to individually identify and secure each connected device. Administrators may quickly add and remove specific users without having to change wireless access security keys.
Enable CAP access points offer certificate-based TLS encryption service, SPI firewalls, VLANs, and 802.1X/RADIUS support to deliver fine-grained access control and enterprise-standard security capabilities. For smaller businesses without centralized user directory services, Individual Device Authentication (IDA) secures connected devices without complex setup or systems integration. CAP access points can be incorporated into HIPAA and PCI compliant solutions.
Guest Connectivity and Instant Social Wi-Fi HotSpot with Public Access Apps
Social Wi-Fi leverages the growing demand for free Wi-Fi and helps businesses gain greater customer insights to improve client satisfaction, marketing and sales. The fully-featured Instant HotSpot has multiple authentication methods, self-service options and bandwidth management functions which compliment the integration with third party applications for public access management and monetization or retail analytics. This extensible approach enables businesses to instantly benefit from their public Wi-Fi offerings by establishing customer interaction and leveraging real-time marketing opportunities during and after each customer’s visit. Integrated Wi-Fi services can help monitor customer service quality, making employees more accountable. Applications integrated into CloudCommand operate securely and safely, supporting PCI compliance.
Plug and Connect Zero Configuration and Self-provisioning
Enable CAP access points require no on site configuration thanks to the centralized, secure provisioning function in CloudCommand. Once installed, each device automatically connects to CloudCommand via encrypted TLS tunnel and retrieves its unique configuration, security settings and user access control information. The self-configuring equipment deploys in just a few minutes instead of hours or days.
Coordinated Wi-Fi Roaming
Once authenticated to associate to the wireless network, users can connect to any access point in the network, regardless of where they are located, including different buildings or even different geographies. Protocol coordination allows connected devices moving across overlapping cells to retain their Wi-Fi connection for smooth and continuous connectivity.
Real-time Active Alerts and Notifications
CloudCommand provides administrators with proactive, real-time alerts via SMS and email whenever a network issue arises across any site, access point or connected device. Alerts and notifications may be customized for events and triggers that affect the specific network and its usage, such as malfunctioning APs and loss of Internet connectivity. Active alerts reduce the need for constant monitoring of the network and enable quick responses which reduce support cost and increase uptime.
Reliable Coverage for High-Throughput Environments
The Enable CAP access points are ideal for use in compact cell deployments for ultra-high total on-air throughput because of their low cost, simplicity of deployment and seamlessly unified management. Dual-band 802.11n APs, Gigabit Ethernet and PoE support provide remarkable capacity in a sleek design that can be mounted on walls and ceilings, indoors and outdoors.
