SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwired - Mar 1, 2016) - Xirrus, the leading provider of next generation, cloud-enabled Wi-Fi networks, today announced an enhanced Managed Service Provider (MSP) partner program featuring CommandCenter, a new control function that radically simplifies the ability of MSPs to offer Wi-Fi-as-a-Service (WaaS) to their customers. CommandCenter, included free of charge with the Xirrus Management System for MSPs, significantly simplifies and speeds up the activation and provisioning process for new customer installations to maximise revenue generation and reduce deployment cost and overhead. MSPs can create customer accounts instantly, no longer having to stage customer networks prior to provisioning, thus reducing time to deployment and inventory levels.

"Wi-Fi users expect connectivity everywhere; businesses need reliable, easy to access, cloud-managed Wi-Fi to provide value to their users. In the past, deploying Wi-Fi-as-a-service presented many challenges including the inability to adapt a Wi-Fi network to address the constantly changing user needs and an ever increasing number of devices," said Andrew Badge, Technical Product Lead, Fred IT. "We're excited about the prospect of Xirrus CommandCenter enabling us to deploy, adapt and manage customer Wi-Fi networks easily, which will empower us to deliver new services to our clientele and build on the new revenue streams created by those unique offerings." 

MarketsandMarkets forecasts the managed services market to grow from $107 billion in 2014 to $193 billion by 2019, creating significant opportunities for MSPs to acquire new customers, expand the markets they service and increase revenue. Success depends on simple, reliable and cost effective service offerings that enable MSPs to differentiate from competitors. Xirrus CommandCenter streamlines MSP operations, empowering partners to independently create and maintain cloud-managed WaaS offerings for their customers regardless of location or size.

Xirrus MSP services and benefits include:

  • Create and manage an unlimited number of customer accounts and locations
  • Add new customer accounts and activate instantly
  • Drag/drop assignment of equipment to/from customer accounts
  • Built-in support and feedback tools enabling fast problem resolution
  • Reduced WAN traffic bandwidth with distributed AP and cloud architecture
  • Integrated EasyPass Wi-Fi access services for guests, BYOD onboarding, and personal Wi-Fi security
  • Reduced total cost of deployment for MSPs

"Cloud-managed IT and enterprise-wide mobility usher in a new set of challenges for businesses who need to design, deploy and manage fast, reliable Wi-Fi networks. More than ever, businesses rely on MSPs to support their mobility needs with Wi-Fi-as-a-Service," said Jillian Mansolf, chief marketing officer and vice president, channel sales at at Xirrus. "CommandCenter is the only solution designed specifically for the unique needs of MSPs, empowering them to deliver next generation Wi-Fi services with unprecedented speed, security and flexibility. This ultimately enables them to increase revenue streams without having to add significant resources."
