What is Managed WiFi?
Managed networking, or Managed WiFi, is a managed service offering from Geeks for Business. Leveraging the power of Software-Defined Networking and cloud management, Geeks for Business is able to monitor your business's Internet uptime, reliability, and speed. In the event of an outage, we'll know as soon as you do and will work quickly to diagnose the issue, getting you employees back online, fast.
In addition, Managed Networking Services include VPN management, which lets remote employees connect quickly and securely to the office, no matter where they are. Provisioning and onboarding of new client devices is also taken care of by us. Managed Security packages can optionally be added for an additional monthly fee (see: Service Plan Information)
What equipment do I need?
Geeks for Business will give you a few networking hardware options, based on your business size and budget. The components used in a Managed WiFi installation include a network router, managed switch (or Layer 2 switch), a cloud controller for remote management, and at least one wireless access point. This combination of hardware enables us to proactively support your network.
What happens if my Internet provider goes offline?
That's where failover comes in. If your primary Internet service provider has an outage, your network will automatically switch to a backup Internet service provider, such as T-Mobile or Verizon. This is especially critical in businesses that handle credit card transactions, as your Point of Sale terminals will remain online, keeping your sales flow going, no matter what.
How much of my data do you have access to?
We only have access to IP addresses, client device names, and network configuration data, generally. Client data, including diagnostic information and troubleshooting logs, are deleted on our end at the end of each support session. We don't copy or analyze client data for any other purpose than to maintain network connectivity, unless the customer explicitly allows it.
How much does this cost?
