Why Guest Access Makes Sense
Security and friendliness need not be mutually exclusive. Under no circumstances should you allow your guests onto your own network. Your data is too valuable for that. On the other hand, your customers are too valuable to offer nothing. The solution is to have your own network on your guest Wi-Fi. This allows visitors to go online without accessing your personal or business information.
How a Guests Wi-Fi Works Technically
Internal traffic and guest traffic are different and are identified from the outset. Devices (routers, access points, switches…) are configured in such a way that each of these data streams is treated according to its own rules and is therefore only allowed to go where you want it to go. So when you are on the guest Wi-Fi, you only have access to the Internet and not to internal resources.
Use Your Guest Wi-Fi for Yourself
If you decide to offer public Wi-Fi, you can also make it work for you. Name the SSID (the name that is broadcast) as you wish. The guest should know who is “donating” the Wi-Fi. You can also present your company at the login and advertise yourself.
Tracking Visitor Movements
This feature requires multiple access points within range of the terminals being tracked. If you want to know where many of your visitors are, which paths they take, then you can do that too. It is even possible to locate individual devices if, for example, children or senior citizens go missing. Please note the relevant legislation. We are happy to advise you on this feature
Operator security through VPN routing
The data traffic of your guests runs via our servers. This means that in the event of misuse, Ascend is the point of contact, not you.
Another advantage of Managed Guests Wi-Fi
You can use the public Wi-Fi for more. You name the SSID (the name that is broadcast). You can also present your company at the login and advertise yourself.
Earn money through your hotspot
You can also decide that only those who pay for it will be able to go online. Generate and sell tickets. You control how long someone can be online, how much traffic they can use and how many devices they can use simultaneously.
If you have devices that are constantly online or need to be online, such as cameras, smart fridges, heating controls… you should also connect them to the Wi-Fi for guests. In the event of a hack, attackers will not automatically have access to your sensitive data.
