Why Use Cloud Managed Networks

In every vertical, technology is prevalent, and the IoT is growing. Having a network that can keep up with all these new devices is of paramount importance to all businesses.

But, these networks are complicated to deploy and manage.

This has been the decade for Startups. Tech innovations, creativity, and other business industries are seeing many new small businesses making lives better. These environments can be just as demanding as the biggest enterprise companies.

Networks have to keep up.

Enter Cloud Managed Networks.

Cloud-managed networks are the answer to so many challenges that growing businesses face when it comes to networking. From showing network topologies to identifying security risks, Cloud managed networking is a growing company’s best friend.

Cloud-managed networks help consolidate your network into a centralised management system. All your switches, access points, and more can be configured within one, easy-to-use software. This can cut down your management and monitoring time quite dramatically, as you can easily see problems through the system.

Also, cloud management networks allow you to manage networks remotely. This means that IT companies can fix most problems from their office and no costly call-out charges for businesses. In fact, some deployment tasks can even be done by staff in-house.

For IT companies, it means you don’t need to lose time or money commuting from site to site. Additionally, less time monitoring means more time optimising and doing tasks that make a visible difference to the wellbeing of your client’s network.

D-Link Nuclias Key Features

The D-Link Nuclias is a great way to get a cloud-based network management solution for your business.

No Hidden Costs

With many Cloud Manage Software solutions, you buy licences for a set amount of users, meaning you usually have to oversubscribe when you tick over into the next group. Sometimes that means paying for unused licences or holding out until you can justify the next batch.

But not with Nuclias! With Nuclias, you pay for what you need. There is just one annual payment, based on how many access points and managed switches you have deployed. How easy it that!

Zero Touch Provisioning

Nuclias features zero-touch provisioning. This allows access points and network switches to be shipped without the IT department preconfiguring them. This saves significant time on initial deployment. Additionally, it helps protect performance when replacing damaged equipment.

Reliability Assured

D-Link built Nuclias on a tried and tested platform. They have poured their 30 years of networking knowledge into this product. In fact, they are so confident in their product, they have a 99.99% uptime service level agreement.

The Nuclias system comes with 24/7 automated failure detection to pick up on any issues that may occur. There’s also 24/7 cross time zone support, with rapid escalation across multiple teams. The network’s performance is constantly monitored and automatically optimised by servers to meet performance demands.

Security

All Nuclias accounts can only be accessed by HTTPS, so you can be assured that all communication between browser and Nuclias cloud is encrypted.

Each device has built-in role and privilege based admin controls which keep your network secure. This means you know exactly who has access to which parts of the network.

In the world of BYOD (Bring Our Own Device), managing security, applications and performance has become trickier than ever. Nuclias helps you keep an eye on all these issues to monitor devices on the network and any risks that may bring. Nuclias has been designed with multi-tenant support in mind.

Customisable Captive Portal

Setting up your guest WiFi is simple, plus you can customise your WiFi captive portal to collect data necessary to your business.
