Netgear has launched Business Central – a secure, cloud-based IT service platform. The company says that this new platform will provide SMEs with a cost-effective way of establishing, providing and managing key IT networking services. The Business Central Wireless Manager, for example, will help firms and organizations, Systems Integrators (SIs), and Value-Added Resellers (VARs) to centrally manage their entire wireless networks through the cloud.
Business Central Wireless Manager will, for instance, help in delivering cost-effective Wi-Fi and at the same time it will enable single or multiple Netgear ProSAFE Wi-Fi access points (APs) that are centrally managed via a standard web browser.
Administrators will therefore have the power to manage multiple APs on one site or across multiple sites. All management functions will also be completely hosted on the web so there won’t be need for hardware or physical upgrades.
With the manager, administrators will also be able to configure wireless security settings, run bandwidth usage reports, control Wi-Fi access on the network and manage wireless SSIDs, all in a few clicks.
The Business Central Wireless Manager is already available at reseller and partner channels. The final prices may vary depending on the specific reseller’s bundle. VAR have the advantage of a 90-day free trial.
