The new service builds the functions that companies need for their wireless LAN environments, such as authentication and management, into
The service can be used to prevent unauthorized devices or devices that are not permitted from joining a company network, and to provide access to the open Internet to guests. Functions like these support changing office work styles, where customers bring their own smart devices, and facilitate in-store online-to-offline (O2O) business.
The popularity of smart devices has created a sudden need for wireless LANs in offices as a part of a company's business infrastructure. Wireless LANs are not used only in business systems. They can also be used for Internet connectivity in retail stores and commercial facilities, and for tracking and navigation using a device's positioning information. They may also lead to the development of entirely new services.
Connecting to a company's wireless LAN, however, demands a high level of security, as this also may be a connection to the company's internal network. This would require that authentication servers be set up and access points be configured, an added effort and expense that creates a higher barrier to deploying a wireless LAN. Even after deployment, maintaining and operating the wireless LAN equipment, detecting radio-frequency problems with access points, and diagnosing problems with them in order to maintain stable connectivity all create additional burdens for network administrators.
To solve these problems,
The new service realizes the robust security that business requires based on authentication certificates that specify the devices allowed to connect to a company's internal network. Furthermore, by allowing Internet connections that visitors can use without any additional work on the existing network, retail stores and commercial facilities gain a new marketing platform.
Simple deployment, reduced operational workload Authentication server and access points needed for a wireless LAN are provided as a service for a monthly fee, cutting customers' up-front costs and labor.
Access points installed on the customer premises can be monitored remotely using
The system provides a reliable wireless communications environment by quantifying the noise that can impair communications quality and tracking the effects of radio interference. When problems arise with access points, the situation can be accurately assessed based on consistently configured settings information and log information, and problems can be quickly solved.
Safe and secure connectivity environment In addition to authenticating by ID when attempting to connect, the service also supports device-certificate authentication. Using certificate permission prevents unauthorized third-party devices, or unauthenticated devices, from connecting to the company network. With support for Windows, Android, and iOS, the same level of security is available for multiple platforms.
Encourages new uses for wireless LANs The service can provide connections to the public Internet, so that visitors to stores can access the web. Because this runs over the same access point used for reaching the company network, no extra work is involved in changing the existing network environment.
