Easy and secure networking with the Next-Generation Enterprise WLAN
Mobile devices are indispensable nowadays for staff productivity. As a consequence, a reliable WLAN infrastructure is particularly crucial as unsatisfactory user experiences have a significant impact on commercial success.
However, it is a very complex endeavor requiring a high level of know-how to operate a flexibly scalable WLAN that supports the ever-growing number of devices and a wide range of management functions. It is also becoming increasingly difficult for many businesses to retain expert service staff.
indevis meets these challenges with the indevis WLAN Service. indevis provides a WLAN infrastructure as a service, and at the same time is responsible for all aspects of its operation – on a local, regional, national or global basis.
The comprehensive all-inclusive indevis WLAN service is available in the versions Basic and Enterprise. Beide Versionen werden von indevis zentral gemanaged. Both versions are centrally managed by indevis. The components in the Basic version are managed purely on a cloud basis. In the Enterprise version you can select between cloud-based management or management hosted by indevis.
Benefits of the indevis WLAN service
- Provision of the complete WLAN infrastructure, including operational responsibility (without physical installation of the infrastructure)
- Centralized global management of the deployed access points
- Two service levels: Basic and Enterprise
- Updates and a service desk
- Assistance in capacity planning and rollout, flexible scalability
- Full Service from indevis: devices, licenses, setup, policies and much more
- Guest network, including a captive portal – optionally with private preshared key technology

Guest network with Captive Portal included – optional Private Preshared Key
With the guest network you can easily organize the management of personal equipment and guest devices by means of automated self-service workflows for device onboarding. Using the Guest Management function and a captive portal provided by indevis, you can create and issue guest vouchers for authentication yourself without any difficulty.
The optional PPSK technology enables secure, profile-based network access in which different user-related private preshared keys can be used. If a staff member leaves the company or should a device be lost, only the PPSK of the user/device is deleted, while all other PPSKs continue to work as before.
The access points deployed by indevis independently organize themselves in a so-called hive – i.e. a collection of individual access points that behave and can be managed as a single unit without centralized WLAN switches or controllers that are otherwise required.
The access points themselves are responsible for processing management information and for collecting data regarding the capacity level of the network. In addition, information on Service Level Agreements, firewall policies, quality of service of applications, and security configuration settings are also retained here. This means that each access point can respond rapidly to changes and provide the appropriate bandwidth to applications and data streams.
