Cloud-Based Network Baselining and Troubleshooting

“Why is the Wi-Fi not working?” If this question sounds all too familiar, you’re not alone. Whenever a user experiences a problem, they will often blame Wi-Fi. IT admins need access to better answers. The Wi-Fi Cloud provides real-time insight into the users’ experience and tracks why clients may fail to connect to the network. Wi-Fi Cloud baselines network traffic and automatically highlights anomalies by triggering alerts to network admins for resolving issues before users report them.
