Xirrus Transforms How MSPs Deliver Wi-Fi Services with the Launch of CommandCenter
Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can now instantly provision and manage an unlimited number of customer Wi-Fi networks from one easy-to-deploy, turnkey cloud platform
Xirrus have announced an enhanced Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner program featuring CommandCenter, a new control function that radically simplifies the ability of MSPs to offer Wi-Fi-as-a-Service (WaaS) to their customers. CommandCenter, included free of charge with the Xirrus Management System for MSPs, significantly simplifies and speeds up the activation and provisioning process for new customer installations to maximize revenue generation and reduce deployment cost and overhead. MSPs can create customer accounts instantly without the need to stage customer networks prior to provisioning. This reduces time to deployment and inventory levels.
Our managed customers rely on us to address their application, security and networking needs, and reliable Wi-Fi stands as an integral part of that equation. In the past, delivering WaaS has presented a number of challenges, including the rapidly evolving nature of both technology and customer requirements,” said Roman Avanesyan, practice director, Microsoft productivity and infrastructure, SADA Systems. “Xirrus’ cloud-based MSP solution with CommandCenter enables us to deploy and manage customer Wi-Fi networks easily and in a very flexible manner, empowering us to deliver new services to our clients and grow our business in ways we never could before.
MarketsandMarkets forecasts the managed services market will grow from $107 billion in 2014 to $193 billion by 2019, which creates significant opportunities for MSPs to acquire new customers, expand the markets they service and increase revenue. Success depends on simple, reliable and cost effective service offerings that enable MSPs to differentiate from competitors. Xirrus CommandCenter streamlines MSP operations. Partners can independently create and maintain cloud-managed WaaS offerings for their customers regardless of location or size.
