Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can now easily manage indoor and outdoor networks for enterprise customers, hotels and venues — without requiring end-users to purchase equipment
December 12, 2016 — CAMPBELL, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE) – KodaCloud Inc., the first company to offer enterprise customers Wi-Fi as a cloud-powered subscription service with one global expert system for proactive network monitoring and troubleshooting using patented Artificial Intelligence (AI), today announced the commercial availability of its new outdoor Wi-Fi Access Point (OAP). With this launch, KodaCloud has now expanded its portfolio of Wi-Fi as a Cloud Service to deliver a seamless Wi-Fi experience for mixed indoor and outdoor environments.
“KodaCloud is re-defining the organizational network,” said Craig Mathias, a Principal with the wireless and mobile advisory firm Farpoint Group. “What we’re seeing here isn’t just the future of Wi-Fi in enterprise, government, and beyond, but in fact the re-definition of organizational IT itself away from ever-more boxes and towards easily-scalable and very cost-effective services.”
KodaCloud’s service includes a network of indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi Access Points (AP) that are shipped directly to customer location(s), and entire networks can be installed in minutes. KodaCloud delivers and manages the networks for less than the cost of most vendors’ maintenance contracts, eliminating the need for a customer to buy equipment or a partner to manage inventory or shipments.
“KodaCloud’s new outdoor AP is the result of over a decade of experiences in creating and delivering innovative access points for rugged outdoor and mixed indoor environments,” said Marcel Chenier, vice president of engineering. “What makes this an industry first, is KodaCloud’s ability to proactively manage and troubleshoot mixed and regionally distributed deployments of indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi networks, controlled by one global expert system powered by Artificial Intelligence.”
KodaCloud OAP specifications include:
- 11ac, 3×3 dual radio 2.4 + 5.8 GHz (FCC)
- IP-67 compliant enclosure and temperature rated for -40℃ to 60℃
- Omni-directional and directional antenna options
- Gigabit Ethernet with Power over Ethernet
“We’re very happy to be the first partner to deploy the new outdoor AP from KodaCloud,” said Greg Chitwood, CEO of Allied Communications. “Our customers need indoor and outdoor options, and we’re very pleased to benefit from KodaCloud’s proactive network management that’s already saving us time and resources.”
KodaCloud’s patented AI-powered cloud service reduces or eliminates the need for dedicated IT teams to constantly monitor network traffic, monitor radio interference or respond to network alerts indicating a problem without a clear solution. MSPs benefit from unprecedented profit margins with KodaCloud.
