Small and medium businesses (SMBs) need fast, stable and pervasive Wi-Fi, yet typically lack the budget, time and in-house resources to install and manage complex Wi-Fi deployments with multiple wireless access points (APs). This is why we are making Wi-Fi easy for SMBs with Ruckus Unleashed. In fact, our controller-less, high-performance and affordable portfolio of access points (APs) can be up and running in five minutes or less. Put simply, we make installation, configuration and basic network management easy for even non-technical users with the free Unleashed mobile app for Apple iOS and Android.
Last October, we introduced the Ruckus Unleashed Multi-Site Manager (UMM) to make it easier for SMBs to manage multiple wireless networks in different geographic locations. Essentially, the Ruckus Unleashed Multi-Site Manager is designed to provide a centralized management tool within a ‘single pane of glass.’ Featuring intuitive and customizable dashboards, the UMM displays near real-time insights about connected access-points and clients, along with map views of networks and graphs of recent activity.
To further help SMBs with monitoring, management and reporting of their Wi-Fi APs across multiple locations, the second release of Unleashed Multi-Site Manager offers new features and powerful enhancements that make it even easier for SMBs to configure Unleashed networks. These include:
- Enhanced Scale – UMM can now manage up to 1,000 sites or 10,000 APs.
- NAT Traversal Support – SMBs no longer need to configure port forwarding in remote sites. This significantly simplifies the deployment and accessing of UMM – especially in scenarios where both UMM and Unleashed networks are behind a firewall or NAT.
- UI Enhancements – We have upgraded elements of the dashboard to make navigation more intuitive. For example, we have moved the “monitor” menu into devices and added a new “tasks” menu.
In conclusion, SMBs are demanding fast, reliable, always-on connectivity for dozens or hundreds of connected devices. However, SMBs often lack the budget, time and in-house resources to install and manage complex Wi-Fi deployments with multiple wireless access points. This is why we designed our controller-less, high-performance and affordable portfolio of Unleashed access points to be up and running in just minutes.
Unleashed can also be easily managed by just about everyone with our free mobile app for Apple iOS and Android, while our Unleashed Multi-Site Manager provides a more advanced ‘single pane of glass’ centralized management tool.
