Did You Move to the Cloud and Now Your Network Is Slow? Get Business Wi-Fi.

Learn how to ensure the success of your cloud applications with HPE OfficeConnect OC20 Access Points, a fast, reliable business-grade Wi-Fi solution.

Blog_OC20_Wifi.jpgAt first, your workers were thrilled with their Office 365, Salesforce and other cloud apps, but now that your business is expanding, they’re complaining that slow apps are holding back their productivity. Cloud apps put a lot more pressure on your network, and if you’re using consumer-grade Wi-Fi that’s unable to handle the rise in traffic, they may be right in complaining.

To keep your business running smoothly and ensure the success of your cloud-based applications, there’s a good chance you’ll need to upgrade to a business-grade Wi-Fi solution that offers faster, more reliable and secure connectivity.

Faster, more reliable Wi-Fi connectivity for your employees

A business-grade Wi-Fi solution like the OfficeConnect OC20 access points (APs) offers increased bandwidth and better coverage to keep your cloud applications running at full speed and can easily scale to handle increased traffic and mobile devices. You can start small with a single access point and add new APs as your business and end user demands grow.

Optimized network availability

Your business communications are the lifeblood of your business. Any network downtime can have a significant impact on your bottom line. The OfficeConnect OC20 APs offer built-in resiliency to keep your network up and running. If an access point fails, another access point will automatically take over without any intervention or network disruption.

Intuitive network setup and remote management

A business-grade Wi-Fi solution offers easy set-up and management of multiple APs. The OC20 APs come with an intuitive iOS or Android mobile app that offers fast network setup in minutes and the ability to remotely monitor your network from your smartphone—all without technical expertise. It’s easy to expand your network as well. New APs automatically join the existing network without any configuration, and you can centrally manage up to eight APs from the OfficeConnect mobile app.

Enhanced guest access and network security

Unlike consumer-grade Wi-Fi that typically support just one wireless network, a business-grade solution allows you to create a separate guest network that keeps your guest traffic isolated from your corporate traffic. This prevents your guests from accessing corporate data and allows you to offer your guests a separate password or even social media logins if you have a Facebook Wi-Fi page.

With OC20, you also can control what your employees and guest can access on the web by blocking access to malicious or high risk sites to protect your network from online threats.

Powering your access points

To further secure and extend the reliability of your small business network, HPE offers the OfficeConnect 1920S switches. The 1920S can be monitored by the OfficeConnect mobile app, and offers Power over Ethernet (PoE) options that eliminate the need to run separate power cables to individual access points.

The HPE OfficeConnect network solution can help small businesses do more with less—enabling you to share resources and collaborate with the quality of a business-grade network, without the complex setup.

Whether you’re just starting out or expanding your business, with OfficeConnect you can deploy a business-grade office solution to support your employee needs at each stage of growth.
