New wifi solution from Comcast features faster speed, more control
On Tuesday morning, Comcast Business unveiled WiFi Pro, a Wifi solution that includes cloud-based controls, marketing tools and other technological capabilities. Wifi Pro is designed and built for a wide range of businesses such as SMBs and enterprise branch locations.
Wifi Pro provides two high-performance commercial Wifi networks, a private network for employees and a guest network for visitors. It provides additional security and includes the latest AC chipset to support the fastest Wifi speeds and expanded range.
"WiFi Pro offers simple management and features to SMBs and distributed enterprises that were previously only available to headquarters and other large office locations, enabling a better employee experience and customer engagement," John Guillaume, vice president of product management at Comcast Business, said in a statement. "The additional marketing features allow SMBs and enterprise branches to create a more personalized experience through WiFi to help drive customer retention and revenue growth."
The equipment and access points for Wifi Pro are installed and maintained by expert technicians, allowing business owners and IT managers to focus on running their businesses. Wifi Pro can be managed on a smart device by mobile app or an online portal that allow businesses advanced techniques like on demand activity reporting and network configuration controls to set schedules and allocate bandwidth.
