Does your business have a waiting room that potential clients sit in? What are you providing those people to entertain themselves with? Do you have a TV set to a daytime talk show? Or are you still relying on six month old magazines to keep people happy? It’s shocking how few of the offices that have waiting rooms offer to provide Wi-Fi to their guests. With everyone having a smartphone or tablet this seems like a no brainer to offer. It will allow people to read the news, watch videos on YouTube, or just play games on their phone. The two biggest concerns are the security of the network and the cost to set up a network. However, the Cisco Meraki product line offers solutions that solve both of these issues.
Meraki makes it extremely easy to setup security settings for your network. All you have to do is log into the online portal and all of the settings are right at your fingertips. You can restrict which websites people can go to, what type of media they are able to view, even what times they are able to access the network. Your network is also protected by Level 7 firewalls, and is both HIPAA and PCI compliant so no matter what kind of business you are running, it will meet your security requirements. The Cisco Meraki system was designed from the ground up to be affordable for any size business. All of the devices are plug and play and don’t require an IT degree to setup. This will save you a ton of money on up-front install costs. Plus, since the system is so easy to manage, you won’t have to staff an extra IT person to do it for you. Best of all, if you sit in on a free Meraki webinar, you will become eligible for a free wireless access point. You can choose which webinar you want to attend by clicking here.
