Why Your building needs a managed service

Allowing individuals to install their own broadband and WiFi equipment in a multi-tenant building, as they would in a traditional home environment, may sound like a viable option. However, this is not a sustainable solution.

As the building reaches capacity and the radio environment becomes congested, tenants’ WiFi connections will become unreliable, weaken and eventually stop working.

In a multi-tenant environment, only a managed Internet service will do.

Only with a managed service, designed specifically for each building, can you provide tenants with reliable, high-capacity broadband and WiFi (including WiFi coverage in public and shared areas) and allow for the secure running of key building infrastructure like CCTV, access control, intercom and power metering.
