Ooma Takes the Complexity Out of Business Wireless Networks with New Ooma Wi-Fi
Ooma, Inc., a smart communications platform for businesses and consumers, today announced Ooma Wi-Fi®, a service for Ooma Office cloud-based phone service customers that takes the complexity out of wireless networking for small and medium-sized businesses.
Large enterprises typically deploy elaborate and expensive solutions for managing Wi-Fi networks, requiring experts to install and operate them. Ooma Wi-Fi (https://www.ooma.com/business-internet/managed-wifi/) brings the power and sophistication of enterprise Wi-Fi networking to SMBs in an affordable and turnkey solution that doesn't require special effort or expertise from the business owner.
The features of Ooma Wi-Fi include:
Ooma Wi-Fi is available now to Ooma Office customers at $11.99 per month for the first access point under management and $6.99 per month for each additional access point.
Ooma is providing three access points for Ooma Wi-Fi:
In conjunction with the launch of Ooma Wi-Fi, Ooma is providing a selection of four Wi-Fi-enabled phones (https://www.ooma.com/small-business-phone-systems/buy/) for Ooma Office. This gives businesses the flexibility to place IP phones wherever they're needed, even if there's no nearby Ethernet cable.
Ooma Wi-Fi is also a perfect complement to the Ooma Connect fixed wireless internet solution (https://www.ooma.com/business-internet/) that delivers both data and phone service. The Ooma Connect base station is a 1-gigabit router that can link Ooma Wi-Fi access points to the internet, providing "one stop shopping" from a single provider for internet access, phone service and local network management.
Ooma Wi-Fi is powered in partnership with Extreme Networks (News - Alert) (https://www.extremenetworks.com/), a leader in cloud managed networking infrastructure, including the ExtremeCloud™ IQ management platform, which automates and accelerates the service upturn on customer Wi-Fi-as-a-service deployments with simplified onboarding of cloud-managed access points.
"In today's fast-paced business environment, companies of all sizes are adopting managed Wi-Fi services so they can spend more time advancing the business and less time managing and troubleshooting the network," said Wes Durow (News - Alert), Chief Marketing Officer, Extreme Networks. "Extreme is excited to extend the benefits of our easy-to-use, enterprise-class wireless connectivity solutions to small and medium businesses through our partnership with Ooma. The combination of our ExtremeCloud IQ network management platform and our high-performance, cloud managed access points will help ensure reliable and secure connectivity, and ultimately an effortless networking experience for all Ooma Wi-Fi customers."
"Ooma Wi-Fi continues our mission of making sophisticated technology affordable and easy to deploy for small and mid-sized businesses," said Thad White, vice president for product management at Ooma. "We're removing complexity by delivering 'concierge' service where Ooma pre-configures the Wi-Fi access points and then manages them, so the customer only has to plug in the hardware to get up and running."
