Viasat Launches Managed Wi-Fi Service for Small and Medium Businesses
Hotspot Service Helps Businesses Securely Offer Free Wi-Fi to In-Store Customers
The business hotspot service essentially creates two separate networks from a single internet connection: a secure and private network for business operations and second public guest network. The Wi-Fi service can be set up indoors or outdoors, and enables the SMBs to customize the guest network with a branded login page and network name.
New engagement opportunities
Surveys show that customers spend more time and money in stores that provide free Wi-Fi. While larger retailers have been taking advantage of this for years, SMBs have had few managed Wi-Fi options, often having to set up a ‘do-it yourself’ solution or go without. Now SMBs, regardless of where they decide to set up shop, can deploy a secure and robust customer Wi-Fi service without the hassle.
Management and security features
SMBs will be able to monitor and manage their hotspots around-the-clock through
“The Viasat Business Hotspot service allows SMBs to easily deploy free Wi-Fi to their customers, increasing interactions, enhancing their in-store experiences and creating new sales opportunities,” said
