Broadband Communities: Managed Wi-Fi is Not a Set It and Forget It Technology

Most of the original managed Wi-Fi providers were working only in student housing, which had very specific needs. Managed Wi-Fi has changed and evolved through the years, and it is not a “set it and forget it” technology. From a broadband operator perspective, see what’s important when installing a system and managing the customers. Multifamily owners and broadband operators have different needs with regard to pricing, bulk managed Wi-Fi, OTT service, vendor platforms, ownership of wiring, etc. Attend this session to explore the service provided alongside the technology. ​
