Linksys Puts SMB/Solution Provider Wi-Fi Management In The Cloud

Linksys Cloud Manager is a cloud-based Wi-Fi management solution that offloads the usual tasks, hardware and software management done by in-house IT by providing simplified administration and targeting lower operational costs.

The product includes a 5 year, no cost, unlimited node license. A license purchase option will be available then, with cost to be determined.

Marketed to both SMB customers and managed service providers, Linksys Cloud Manager provides a centralized wireless networking management solution that, through a single sign-in dashboard, monitors, administrates and troubleshoots both simple and complex remote networks.

Features include a browser-based management tool with a global map UI that provides visibility to managed owner/admin/viewer accounts, sites, and network hardware.

Other features include proactive email and text alerting, real-time statistics like uptime, signal strength and connection duration, troubleshooting tools such as ping, blinking AP LEDs, RF environmental scanning and rogue AP detection.

Designed to scale from single site to larger distributed networks, managed Linksys APs connect to Cloud Manager over SSL and can be remotely configured for rapid deployment, while automatic over-the-air firmware updates keep Linksys Cloud Manager enabled hardware updated.

Linksys Cloud Manager is currently available on Linksys Business Wireless AC APs, including the LAPAC1200C and LAPAC1750C models. LAPAC2600C will be getting the updated firmware in November 2018.
