ADTRAN Breaks Barriers In Simplifying Cloud Wi-Fi Services

Stocks in this article: ADTN

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), today announced a major upgrade to its virtual wireless LAN (vWLAN®) solution. New features of the vWLAN platform include built-in high availability for always-on, anywhere access; an intuitive, simple, yet powerful graphical user interface (GUI); and customizable dashboards that report real-time and historical views into the health of the network. The new enhancements to ADTRAN’s vWLAN will allow managed service providers and resellers to more easily launch and manage cloud Wi-Fi services, leading to expanded service portfolios and greater revenue opportunities.

Service providers and resellers looking to grow revenue by adding cloud-hosted Wi-Fi to their service portfolio can be faced with three key network challenges. First, disruptions in cloud connectivity can cripple business operations for customers. Second, monitoring and managing multiple Wi-Fi networks can become overtly complex and time-consuming. Third, traditional approaches to network issue resolution have been reactive, which can lead to poor customer service and loss of business.

ADTRAN’s enhanced vWLAN platform addresses these concerns and more by offering the following new features:

  • Built-in High Availability: By building high availability into the vWLAN platform, ADTRAN enables managed service providers and resellers to provide business continuity and reduce risk traditionally associated with cloud-based services.
  • Simple, Yet Powerful GUI: The new vWLAN offers an intuitive, easy-to-use GUI that reduces learning curves, enables faster deployments and lowers operating time and costs. Furthermore, the management console is built on HTML5 allowing vWLAN to be accessed and managed from any Windows, iOS or Android-based smartphone or tablet, from anywhere in the world.
  • Customizable Reporting Dashboards: Where traditional WLAN solutions only provide historical data, ADTRAN’s vWLAN adds real-time status dashboards that allow cloud Wi-Fi providers to monitor the health of their customer’s wireless environment in real time. Providers can also create multiple dashboards and customize reports that provide perspectives on different areas of the network, its current state, trends and information. In addition, the reports are also dynamic, allowing users to drill down for more detailed information. It’s then easier to optimize the performance of the cloud Wi-Fi service network.

“ADTRAN’s latest vWLAN enhancements exemplify the company’s ability to develop feature-rich solutions that add value to the network. We’ve built in the capabilities that matter most to businesses, making it easier than ever for managed service providers and resellers to enter the cloud Wi-Fi services market and win,” said Mads Lillelund, general manager, WLAN Solutions, ADTRAN. “vWLAN now offers a unique combination of business continuity support, flexibility and customization that fits the distinctive business needs of the managed service provider. As a result, these providers can achieve greater control, react to issues faster and optimize network performance.”
