Linksys Launches High Performance Cloud Networking Management

Linksys is celebrating thirty years of networking and WiFi innovation for the home and business.

The company has unveiled its Linksys Cloud Manager. This product is a cloud-hosted WiFi Management Platform. It is built for small business environments to reduce costs and increase operational efficiencies. The product offers centralized visibility, management and control of a wireless network without the cost and complexity of traditional hardware controllers, overlay software or annual hosting costs.

“There is a gap in the market for affordable, business-grade cloud managed WiFi management platforms designed specifically for SMBs,” said Wayne Newton, director, commercial business, Linksys. “Current offerings are either built with consumer-grade hardware or with expensive, enterprise features with prohibitive annual hosting fees.  A common complaint is enterprise offerings are complex and over-engineered with features and functionality beyond the usual requirements of a small business network.”

The cloud manager is designed to allow IT administrators and other authorized users to remotely monitor, manage and troubleshoot single or distributed wireless networks in real-time via a single dashboard and sign-on. This plug-n-play platform provides secure remote access to Linksys Business Wireless-AC Access Points, built with enterprise-grade and high-performance hardware.

“The Linksys Cloud Manager is very easy and intuitive to navigate. I have used Meraki, Cradlepoint, and Aerohive in the past and this is by far the easiest interface to navigate,” said Michael Johnson, solution engineer, RCN Technologies.
