Webinars
Tuesday, November 3, 2020
12:00 p.m. New York/ 5:00 p.m. London

Subscribers want two things: reliable Wi-Fi and continuous coverage for all of their connected devices. To get this, many customers will purchase third-party Wi-Fi routers and gateways from their local consumer electronics retailer. And while these may work, the data shows that most subscribers usually call their service providers when they experience service or security issues with these third-party systems.

It doesn't have to be this way. By offering a managed Wi-Fi solution, service providers can avoid the pain of trying to resolve issues caused by these consumer-grade routers and offer a solution that delivers their subscribers the ultimate Wi-Fi experience – while also generating new streams of revenue.

Join us for this webinar to understand:

  • What is managed Wi-Fi and why you should consider using it
  • How the Wi-Fi 6 standard impacts managed Wi-Fi
  • How subscribers can benefit from managed Wi-Fi
