Alpha Omega Wireless, Inc. ("AO Wireless") has announced it is launching, a one of a kind, cloud based Wireless Network Monitoring solution ("AO-WNMS") service to its clients. The new AO-WNMS will provide a much needed solution for organizations that have wireless networks, both outdoor wireless (point to point and point to multipoint wireless backhaul) and indoor Wi-Fi / DAS wireless systems. AO-WNMS will provide the client their own cloud based portal so they can along side AO Wireless have full visibility of the wireless network.
Unlike traditional NMS (Network Monitoring Systems) used in a traditional IT environment, the AO-WMNS is focused on wireless networks yet still has the capability to monitor other traditional IP based devices, like switches, cameras, servers, etc. Traditional NMS systems, do well monitoring typical IT related devices, but are not truly designed for wireless systems. They lack the ability to fully monitor the RF (radio frequency) component of the devices and of the network. Some manufactures have their own specific software but lack being vendor agnostic and able to monitor other wireless equipment on the client's network. AO-WNMS can monitor both the Ethernet side of the radio network while at the same time monitoring the wireless side of the networking devices.
AO-WNMS being a cloud based solution eliminates the high costs of maintaining on premise server hardware and software that requires annual maintenance and updates. AO-WNMS is a subscriptions service that is fully maintained and kept up to date in the cloud making it completely maintenance free and seamless for the client. This also provides the benefit of AO-WNMS on demand where it can be accessed on any internet enabled device and from anywhere. IT Administrators no longer need to VPN in from home or on the road creating a completely mobile workforce.
AO-WNMS creates a trouble ticket platform and a customizable reporting platform. It provides comprehensive wireless network health and performance reporting realtime. Alerts can be customized to provide real time monitoring of a network around the clock. It is the perfect complement to AO Wireless' Annual Support and Maintenance Program that provides on-call and on-site support.
President Joe Wargo says, "We are really excited to give our clients a wireless network monitoring system that is truly designed for wireless technology on top of traditional IP based networks. We wanted to have a solution that would be fully customizable and vendor agnostic by working with any brand of wireless equipment. AO-WNMS will provide a complete access to the network for the client while benefiting from the technical support and monitoring from Alpha Omega Wireless. The system is so simple to use and was designed that way because we have many client organizations that are not fully IT experienced or have the staff. We needed a system that utility field meter techs or municiple traffic control technicians could easily get access and see if their wireless network is up and functions properly. While it is simple from a user experience it is extremely robust for the season IT expert. Custom sensors can be made to dig deep down into the device and network performance.
