Milan, Italy (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
Many Small Businesses, and sometimes SMEs too, are not able to buy expensive Enterprise-level Wi-Fi solutions and pay the high-end professional services that are associated to those solutions especially in this climate. IT professionals working in that space don’t even usually need all those complex features that are available in overkill enterprise solutions…. They just want something reliable, efficient, and easy-to-use when managing their WLANs.
Tanaza (http://www.tanaza.com) answers to this need, providing the first cloud-based centralized WLAN management solution that works with multi-vendor Wi-Fi Access Points.
The solution works with your existing APs, it allows to centrally manage and remote monitor one or multiple WLANs based hardware provided by TP-Link, Ubiquti and soon a range of other vendors. The overall idea of this tool is to allow the IT Administrator to select the hardware that better fits with the needs of any specific location: it can be sometimes the lowest-cost TP-Link; or in other situations can be a higher performing Ubiquiti UniFi. All can be controlled through one single cloud-dashboard in a very intuitive way.
A few days ago Tanaza released the latest version of their cloud software, introducing an even easier-to-use dashboard, allowing to see the status of multiple WLANs in one shot, checking if firmware upgrades are required, monitoring bandwidth consumption and resources usage such as the average load or the RAM of each WLAN device. This latest release was appreciated by a lot of partners as well as end users.
One great example comes from a global coffee shop retail chain: Esquires Coffee Houses (http://www.esquirescoffee.net/): Lewis Deeks, -director of the company, summarized the advantages -provided by Tanaza for their retail WLAN application: “Esquires Coffee Houses are currently piloting Tanaza's cloud based Wi-Fi management system in three of our stores in the UK and plan to rollout the system across all Esquires stores in various international markets commencing in early 2014. Esquires have investigated various solutions for delivering a free Wi-Fi service to our customers and we are confident Tanaza's cloud based Wi-Fi management system will provide the flexibility, scalability and tools we require in a very cost effective manner. The aim is to introduce a common Wi-Fi platform across all stores that is reliable and easy for customers to use, while also ensuring customers have the same user experience regardless of which Esquires Coffee House they visit. We also like the fact that the Tanaza team are accessible, open to suggestions and are constantly adding new functionality to the system. Being cloud based we can obviously monitor and manage the entire Wi-Fi network from anywhere with an internet connection.”
Joanna Wall, Tanaza Channel Manager, added that, "Esquires is a very interesting case of end-user application in the retail space. But most of our partners are IT professionals offering managed WLAN services to hotels, restaurants, hospitals, schools and small businesses in general: they are offering very different types of services, from a fully free high speed connection, to internet at the price of a Facebook like. What they have in common though, is that they don’t have time to waste with complex tools, they need a simple dashboard that allows them to do what they want in a few clicks. This is exactly what Tanaza offers, and our fantastic R&D team are making it simpler and simpler to use with every release."
Founded in 2010, Tanaza's mission is to make Wi-Fi management easy and affordable, enabling centralized and remote management of WLANs based on single or multi-vendor hardware.
