News: Managing Wireless Networks as a Service

 Veteran IT & channel analyst Michael Vizard highlights how MSPs are positioning themselves for profits and efficiency using the CloudCommand platform to develop Networking as a Service (NaaS) models:

The emergence of the bring-your-own-technology (BYOT) phenomenon coupled with the multiplication of wireless networks in the enterprise is creating a new opportunity for solution providers in the channel.

As the number and types of mobile computing devices on the network continue to expand, managing is proving to be a major challenge for many IT organizations.

At the same time, many organizations now have multiple wireless networks in place from different vendors. Ideally, those networks and all the devices attached to them would all be managed under a common framework.

That’s the capability that PowerCloud Systems is trying to deliver as a service through the channel. According to PowerCloud CEO Jeff Abramowitz, PowerCloud has been working with providing its CloudCommand service via OEM partners. In the wake of attaining an additional $6 million in a round of funding led by Qualcomm, the company is now trying to expand its partner ecosystem in the channel.

Specifically, CloudCommand-powered networking devices enable MSPs to provide SMB customers with enterprise-like networks that cost a fraction of traditional enterprise solutions.

MSPs deploy and operate CloudCommand-powered networks because they gain a rich set of tools (think plug-and-play deployments, remote management, real-time alerting, etc.)  that enable them to rapidly expand their services to include NaaS as a profitable and recurring revenue stream.  Learn about our solutions in action.
