ARCC, a cloud-based wireless controller solution by Access Networks, provides integrators streamlined and fully customizable deployments, remote access and control of clients’ networking systems, and an opportunity to leverage recurring revenue.
Access Networks continues to evolve its enterprise-grade networking solutions with the introduction of a cloud-based configuration and management platform. The next-generation cloud-based wireless controller, ARCC, is built on Ruckus architecture and delivers a higher level of control with more tools to customize each job. Additionally, it offers a solid source of recurring revenue, as ARCC enables networks to be monitored and managed remotely. Remediation and firmware updates can help boost integrators’ bottom line, streamline workflow, and improve customer satisfaction.
“Historically, wireless residential networks have required an on-premise controller for visibility, configuration, and control,” says Access Networks VP of sales Ben Jurow. “Now, with the introduction of ARCC, integrators can deliver the same level of service and support remotely. ARCC has all the same features, and more, of our popular C120 hardware-based wireless controller, so dealers can transition to cloud-based service while offering customers the same high-level of performance.”
ARCC integrates with any Access Networks-enabled network, much like the C120 appliance. Core managed network solutions ship preconfigured based on dealer-supplied network parameters and requirements specific to the deployment. Once the access points, routers, and switches have been installed, the access points will connect to the Internet and self-configure. Then, from a computer or mobile device, the integrator can button up the system, administering security protocols and setting up passwords, for example. The entire process is transparent to the customer, and repeatable when possible, saving integrators time and manpower.
Additionally, ARCC allows integrators and their clients to stay ahead of the technological curve. Updates introducing new features and capabilities download to ARCC remotely via the cloud, providing a dependable way of keeping clients’ networks as current and capable as possible. And when new Access Networks products are added to the network, modifications to the ARCC configuration platform happen automatically.
Access Networks plans to offer ARCC training to integrators interested in offering the platform. Existing Access Networks integration partners can find more details in their MyAccess partner portal. Others who are interested in learning more about ARCC are invited to contact [email protected]
