While metropolitan areas represent only 1% of the world’s total landmass, that’s where the majority of the world’s population resides. So delivering mobile broadband services in the metro is an obvious opportunity but it has also delivered its share of challenges for service providers. BelAir Networks carrier grade Wi-Fi solutions are designed to make it fast and easy for both traditional service providers and new market entrants to get broadband wireless networks up and running quickly, delivering the great user experience that today’s smartphone and tablet users are looking for, and tomorrow’s will take for granted.
The BelAir Networks carrier grade Wi-Fi solutions comprise a robust portfolio of outdoor and indoor APs and multi-access small cells, backhaul and mounting options, as well as network and zone controllers for carrier cloud, managed services, stadium and ad-hoc event deployments. BelAir Networks features a highly scalable network management system and tools with support for remote updating of AP software, and business intelligence for network insight and monitoring.
With BelAir Networks, service providers can offer a whole range of services and support multiple business models, all on one network deployment. In addition to delivering mobile broadband access to subscribers in metro areas, service providers can offer managed services, co-location or hosted wireless services to businesses – aka Wireless as a Service or WaaS – and local Internet Service Providers (ISPs). BelAir Networks unique AP virtualization capabilities give service providers the ability to leverage one network deployment many times. With Virtual AP, each AP can support different and segregated services by assigning unique SSIDs by network, group, zone and individual subscriber, enforcing a service provider's existing policy and billing settings. Virtual AP is also what enables service providers to offer a variety of managed services to subscribers, businesses, schools, building owners, and other service providers via shared or hosted network access - unlocking billions of revenues from emerging WaaS business models.
