D-LINK HAS REVEALED a new piece of software designed to simplify distributed network management through a single cloud portal.
D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manageris a free toolkit to allow multi-site businesses to manage the network from a central hub.
The software is a free download offered with selected D-Link wireless access point products.
“In a connected world, the network is at the heart of the business. The growth in adoption of cloud-based applications, real-time communication and remote working mean that connectivity is now mission critical,” said Paul Routledge, marketing manager for D-Link UK.
Security is offered via a support structure for local database, external RADIUS server, LDAP and WiFi password authentication and granular user access control.
Management can be assigned to a range of roles with specific access and authorisation levels, augmented by NAT pass through to allow the controller to manage firewalled access points.
Routledge said: “The D-Link Central Wi-Fi Manager allows any network manager – whether an internal employee or an external provider – to deliver real-time monitoring and management, as well as detailed reporting. The end result is a network that is easy to deploy, set up, monitor and upgrade.”
Also included is the ability to create an access point once and then reuse that same configuration over again with other APs.
Reports included are fully graphical, allowing network managers to drill down into the needs and requirements of the network from a technical and user perspective.
