Delivers Enterprise-Class Cloud Managed Wi-Fi Solutions to EarthBend Channel Partners

The Pronto Networks managed Wi-Fi solutions offer tremendous SMB and mid-market opportunities. We are eager to help EarthBend’s channel partners capitalize on the value proposition presented by our products.

EarthBend, a premier value-added distributor of business telecommunications and IT solutions, today announced a distribution partnership with Pronto Networks, a provider of carrier-class Operations Support Systems (OSS) that enable network operators to deploy and manage large public WLAN networks. Pronto Networks software provides support for provisioning, configuration, authentication, access control, security, pre- and post-paid billing and roaming settlement.

The Pronto Cloud Controller (PCC) is a next-generation cloud Wi-Fi network configuration, management and monitoring solution that delivers enterprise-class functionality while eliminating upfront costs for on-site setup and maintenance. Businesses can leverage PCC to deploy and centrally manage large numbers of access points distributed in a wireless network. Automatic provisioning and configuration of access points makes deployment a plug-and-play exercise. PCC supports multiple compatible Pronto Intelligent Access Points (PIAPs) for both indoor and outdoor environments.

“We are pleased to be partnering with Pronto Networks to make their managed Wi-Fi solutions available to our channel,” said Ryan Donovan, general manager and vice president of sales and service at EarthBend. “Many businesses have enterprise-level needs, but limited IT resources at their disposal. The cloud-managed WLAN technologies available from Pronto Networks offer a compelling and cost-effective way for organizations of any size to meet rapidly changing network demands.”

Key benefits of the Pronto Networks solutions include:

  •     Elimination of expensive on-site controllers and avoidance of hidden costs, delivering capital expenditure savings
  •     Rapid field deployment with zero-touch, automatic configuration and provisioning
  •     Easy administration and control via a user-friendly and intuitive dashboard interface
  •     Inclusion of free 24X7 support as well as periodic feature and firmware upgrades

“The Pronto Networks managed Wi-Fi solutions offer tremendous SMB and mid-market opportunities,” said Nandu Desai, CEO of Pronto Networks. “We are eager to help EarthBend’s channel partners capitalize on the value proposition presented by our products.”
