CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
You invest a lot to provide a great living experience in your multi-dwelling units (MDUs). Whether it’s student or military housing, luxury apartment complexes, senior living or other properties, your residents expect more. They no longer see you as just the landlord; they want you to be their network service provider too. That means supporting a huge number of smart devices, demanding video and gaming services, and other high-bandwidth wireless applications. And it means making the network that delivers those services just as reliable as residents’ water, heat and electricity.
That’s a lot of technical challenges to overcome. But your residents don’t want to hear about how hard it is to provide great Wi-Fi in places with thousands of devices, large indoor/outdoor coverage areas, and multi-story buildings. All they know is that the property down the street has the best Wi-Fi. Does yours?
Wi-Fi is becoming a bigger factor in where people decide to move and whether they stay. Network access rolled into the rent sounds great to residents. But wireless dreams can quickly turn to nightmares—for both your residents and your business—if your Wi-Fi isn’t simple, reliable and secure.
CommScope makes it easy to deliver high-performance Wi-Fi across thousands of units and tens of thousands of users. Even in environments with mixed indoor and outdoor spaces, brick and concrete construction, and high device density, you can provide secure, reliable connectivity. With simple, secure onboarding and management, great Wi-Fi doesn’t have to be more complicated than any other utility on your property.
Residents are connecting more devices—laptops, smartphones, gaming systems, and smart home devices. They want a connected home with wireless services that link every aspect of their work and play. They’re looking for you to give it to them.
Ruckus 802.11ac and Wi-Fi 6 wireless solutions support more simultaneous devices and higher-bandwidth applications, even in challenging residential environments. Our Ruckus access points with patented BeamFlex+ antenna technology continuously optimize each connection—enabling each access point to provider better coverage, support more users and provide a great connection experience to every user.
Your residents’ Wi-Fi love will quickly turn to hate if connecting their devices is a chore or if they have to constantly provide credentials to log back onto the network. And, if they’re relying on you for their Wi-Fi, you’d better make sure you’re protecting their sensitive traffic.
Our certificate-based onboarding makes Wi-Fi access simple—for both your residents and your IT team. Residents can connect any device, anywhere on the property, in seconds, through a branded self-service portal. They can log on once and never have to do anything again. And they can do it all through a platform that protects every connection with the strongest wireless encryption.
