Frontier Communications has launched its Managed Wireless LAN for medium sized businesses and large enterprises.

The new solution combines hosted ad managed technology with extensive, one-stop-shop network installation, management and analytics. It is the key component of Frontier’s developing Fully Integrated Managed Solutions portfolio.

"To focus on their core business, or to simplify operations and reduce costs, enterprises are increasingly entrusting key parts of their IT infrastructure to managed network service providers. Frontier’s Managed Wireless LAN combines managed Wi-Fi with additional managed services including broadband, Ethernet, security, installation, support and monitoring to create a uniquely-tailored and reliable solution,” said Daniel Peiretti, senior vice president of commercial product and marketing for Frontier Communications.

The Managed Wireless LAN allows a customer’s employees, contractors, customers and guests to work and interact virtually anywhere within a network. The solution easily scales as business needs grow, relieving customers of the cost and administrative burden of keeping core technology and software up to date.

“Frontier is leveraging its expertise in network management and the reliability of the Frontier network to provide a new level of service for our customers, enabling personalisation of services without compromising their stability or integrity,” added Peiretti. “Customers can adapt Frontier’s solutions to meet their most unique needs — such as integration with IoT applications to reduce energy consumption, use of a softphone and voice over wireless technology to mitigate poor cellular reception, tracking expensive assets at hospitals and manufacturing sites and inventory management in retail and warehousing environments, among a wide variety of innovative uses.”

Additionally, Frontier’s Business Intelligence portal, comes as an addition to the Managed Wireless LAN, enabling customers to personalise their splash page to convey user messages, control private and guest access and view usage analytics.

In June of this year, Frontier added three new names to its senior management team. Kevin Beebe, Paul Keglevic and Mohsin Meghji were added to the company’s board of directors serving on the board’s finance committee, chaired by Robert Schriesheim. The main responsibilities of the committee are to evaluate Frontier’s capital structure as well as to consider, evaluate and negotiate capital markets, financial transactions or strategic alternatives.
