There’s nothing like going to the country club with family and friends. There’s something for everyone from swimming and golf to relaxing over a nice dinner. Families and individuals around town come to escape their busy lives and enjoy the beautiful landscaping, fine dining and poolside grill. But all the while, they’re still connected to their devices. We love our smartphones and tablets, and when we go to the club, they come with us too.
To manage this new scale of demand for wireless access, cloud-based Managed Wi-Fi Services is something to consider. Your wireless LAN will be managed remotely by an IT service company to ensure secure, scalable and always-on- demand connectivity.
Cloud-managed Wi-Fi is available via a subscription-based payment model that delivers centralized management for authentication of users and network monitoring. It’s definitely something to consider if you struggle with Wi-Fi connectivity and security.
Most every area of our lives has benefited from technology. This includes when we want to relax at the club. Just take a look around.
Your country club guests expect to connect to reliable Wi-Fi. When they can’t, you’re sure to get complaints.
Any Wi-Fi solution you choose shouldn’t bring everything to a halt if there are technical difficulties. Make sure you have the right Wi-Fi equipment and setup to avoid this.
1. Slow or No Connections
When your guests can’t connect reliably to your Wi-Fi, it’s enough to ruin their day at the club. Don’t blame your Internet Service Provider for slow speeds. It could be that you’re using the wrong router. If it’s not capable of transmitting fast speeds, you’re not getting the most from the internet connection you’re paying for.
This typically happens during peak hours when everyone is enjoying lunch, the pool or sitting at the bar watching Sunday’s football games. If your Internet connection is working but slow, it may be time to look at your router or ask about managed Wi-Fi. Did you know you can manage bandwidth applications such as how much bandwidth can be utilized for Netflix and streaming?
2. Lack of Bandwidth
This happens when guest Wi-Fi is spread thin. Maybe the kids are playing online games, mom is streaming her favorite movie while resting by the pool, or the guys are in the grill snapping photos after a golf tournament.
Wireless isn’t always capable of handling the capacity you need. You can avoid this with the right wireless devices and set up.
Interference is a real annoyance. Wireless signals need to go through walls, around corners and outside to designated areas. Studs and metal pipes in the walls can cause interference. Even windows can interfere with wireless signals.
When a wireless signal can’t reach a device, the computer continually resends messages. This overloads the system.
4. Outdated Equipment
Old or consumer-grade routers and modems won’t be capable of supporting the network traffic at the speeds your guests require. And, older technology malfunctions, causing frustrating downtime and constant calls to the IT Help Desk. In these instances, an upgrade or switch to Managed Wi-Fi Service is usually warranted.
5. Lack of Security
The wrong Wi-Fi set up could give criminals access to your guests’ confidential data. With a centrally managed system, you can ensure the security of your business data and your guests’ personal information. A Managed Wi-Fi Solution employs a layered defense to protect your data.
