The Top 3 WiFi Automation Recommendations for Global Enterprises
Worry-free WiFi is a top priority for all enterprises. Securing this capability is the main reason that AI-driven WiFi automation is recommended to businesses around the world. This guide will help you understand its impact and benefits.
What is WiFi automation?
WiFi automation uses a combination of hardware and software to automate the proactive analyzing and testing of the WiFi network, connected devices, infrastructure, and the entire RF ecosystem. Platforms deliver 24/7 detection, notification, and mitigation of network abnormalities, as well as complete ecosystem visibility.
How does WiFi automation work?
The specific process varies depending on the platform selected. Wyebot’s Wireless Intelligence Platform™ (WIP) combines on-premise sensor hardware with cloud-based, patented software. It performs behavioral profiling and device pattern recognition with its AI-engine, advanced wireless optimization algorithms, and next-generation predictive analytics. With this, WIP learns to recognize a network’s expected behavior and provides real-time alerts if that behavior changes in any way.
What are the benefits of WiFi automation?
Enterprises save time and money by increasing WiFi network reliability and optimization while reducing human effort. WiFi automation platforms exist to keep eyes on network performance at all times, providing IT teams automatically with everything needed to resolve any issues that occur. This means that IT can focus their efforts on other critical tasks, trusting that the network is behaving optimally. If issues do arise, IT teams know that they have the analytics they need to resolve problems faster than ever, often before end users are affected.
With WIP specifically, enterprises discover:
- 90% faster resolution times
- 70% fewer WiFi problems
- 80% fewer remote site visits
Top 3 recommendations for WiFi automation
Here are the top 3 capabilities that global enterprises should focus on when selecting an AI-driven WiFi automation platform.
Historical Wireless Traces
In advanced, complex WiFi networks, wireless traces are often the preferred technique for troubleshooting intermittent issues. However, if these traces aren’t saved automatically, IT can’t review past network performance at the trace level. This means that teams don’t have access to historical WiFi communication packets, and can’t review the exact network environment that existed at the time of a problem or other event.
This is why, in addition to real-time analytics, a WiFi automation solution should automatically save historical wireless traces. This deepens the visibility that IT has into network performance and behavior, and ensures that teams have the most complete insights possible. This advances the overall understanding of a WiFi network’s present and future needs.
WIP automatically saves wireless traces for a week, and historical analytics for a day, week, or month with options to extend longer.
Improving the user experience and protecting business productivity is the name of the game. To this end, enterprises need to receive proactive notifications as soon as a network problem occurs. These notifications should include root cause identification and suggested resolutions. It is these insights that support IT teams in resolving problems quickly, often before end users are affected.
The solution you work with should grow with your business, adding new signatures as problems enter the industry and eliminating network mysteries.
Automatic answers are a must-have for the best ROI. A WiFi automation platform should automatically diagnose and troubleshoot issues, and provide IT with the ability to act on that information from any location at any time. This should include real-time analysis of all wireless activity, including that from non-WiFi sources.
This automated troubleshooting greatly reduces money spent on travel and the time to implement a resolution. With automated troubleshooting, it doesn’t matter if there is a WiFi expert onsite or not. It doesn’t matter if an issue is intermittent or not. No matter the circumstances, the troubleshooting process remains the same:
- IT receives an alert that there is an issue.
- IT reviews analytics, including the identified root cause and actionable resolutions.
- IT resolves the issue.
There is no need to travel and no need to wait for an issue to recur. With WiFi automation, IT can get right to problem resolution.
