A solid WiFi network is indispensable in a company or school. People often start building this themselves with some home-garden-and-kitchen equipment, with the result that the whole does not work reliably. We first make an analysis (detect possible bottlenecks in underlying wired network hardware), then we conduct a site survey and look at the requirements in terms of coverage together with you.
You can choose from a solution with a controller or centrally controlled from the cloud. This way you always have central management in function of your needs. We also have systems to automate Wi-Fi access via social login (facebook, twitter, linkedin, Google+) or SMS or via voucher. Several hotels, SMEs and schools already use our services. If desired, we personalize the landing page on which your users or customers end up.
Do you already use Office 365 or Google Workspace? Then we can ensure that your staff members or students can log in based on their email address. You no longer need to run a local server. The authentication is completely handled in the cloud.
Your visitors check in on a tablet and automatically receive a visitor badge and a secure WiFi password. The host is notified that his visitor is at the reception. You always have an overview of the visitors in your company.
You can purchase or choose for WaaS. In the case of Wifi-as-a-Service, you pay a fixed amount per month, which includes the access points, but also configuration service and after-sales service as well as replacement of APs at contract renewal.
For our new location, we didn't want to go too fast. We were mainly looking for a high-performance, stable and affordable solution for WiFi, firewall, device and app management. We have teamed up with CDM ICT for this. A partner with whom we already worked together in the past in the field of hardware and licenses, but which has now emerged as a provider of total packages. They not only provide the necessary support but also training. After the necessary months of preparation, an in-house WiFi management solution was chosen. This way we not only retain total control, but we have no recurring costs for a controller in the cloud. The firewall is the heart of the system and together with the RADIUS server controls the allocation to the VLANS. Visitors can surf via vouchers. Managing the PCs and laptops and assigning software is done through Microsoft Endpoint Manager as part of Microsoft 365 EDU.
We have had Wi-Fi provided to both the nursery and primary school by CDM ICT.
We opted for the Wifi-as-a-Service formula where everything is included in a fixed monthly fee (access points, configuration, replacements, renewal at the end of the contract upon renewal).
In short, by working with CDM ICT, our daily operations have improved enormously.
Highly recommended for everyone.
