MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- AirTight ® Networks, the global leader in secure Wi-Fi solutions, today introduced the next-generation HTML5 UI to simplify management of Wi-Fi networks and wireless IPS (WIPS) at any scale – from ten devices or locations to tens of thousands of devices or locations – via a single console and cloud-managed. The new UI is designed to relieve Wi-Fi network and security administrators of their long-standing pain of having to put up with bulky user interfaces, restrictive information display and platform support, complex configurations and non-intuitive workflows that had almost become a norm for the WLAN industry.
"Until now, WLAN administration has required highly-skilled IT staff, often needing extensive training and certification by WLAN vendors to use their products. AirTight wanted to change that and designed a management console that administrators could start using in mere minutes, on their own and get their job done as quickly and simply as possible," said Kaustubh Phanse, Chief Evangelist at AirTight.
The AirTight Management Console has been designed from the ground up keeping in mind the UI/UX standards for Web 3.0 and Cloud applications. The interface is lightweight and usable on any Web browser, OS, and device, including Androids, iPads, and other tablets.The configurable dashboards allow individual users to create a personal workspace and optimize the information display depending on their needs and screen size. Each user can create multiple dashboards – each with a custom layout, and choose from over 25 widgets to populate the dashboards with meaningful information. The widgets provide network administrators with a wide assortment of statistics and trends on Wi-Fi performance and wireless security at multiple levels – APs, clients, SSIDs, locations, etc., and time durations – ranging from hours to months.
