Cloud-Based LANS – The Future of Networking?

7 Reasons to Consider Cloud-based LANS

Wireless local area networks (WLANs) that link two or more devices using a wireless distribution method, providing a connection through an access point to the wider internet, give users the mobility to move around within a local coverage area and still be connected to the network.

Although WLANs can speed network installation and streamline business processes, managing these increasingly complex networks can be difficult.

WLAN management has traditionally occurred on the customer premises, but some companies are now pushing wireless LAN infrastructure into the cloud, with wired devices that use the same cloud-based networking hardware model.

Benefits of a cloud-enabled approach:

  • Lowers the budgetary point of entry – moves capex to opex
  • Enables automatic upgrades, backup, and simple provisioning
  • Requires no rack space or power consumption –a green solution
  • Provides inherent high-reliability (resilient data centers)
  • Accelerates easier and faster support – can manage from anywhere
  • Lets you start small and expand gradually
  • Increases network flexibility to provide robust network services anywhere, on-demand
