MegaPath Launches Managed WiFi Service with Bluetooth Support

By Laura Stotler

UC and cloud communications specialist MegaPath has rolled out its new Managed WiFi service with support for Bluetooth-enabled Wireless Access Points (WAPs). The Bluetooth enhancement is designed to make it easier for organizations to engage their customers and guests while also improving the efficiency of overall business operations.

The new managed service offering is geared toward the retail, healthcare, hospitality and food service sectors as well as any market interested in offering customers simple WiFi connectivity. MegaPath is also sweetening the deal with a promotion providing two or three months of free service for all qualifying Managed WiFi orders. These include service orders for two- or three-year terms placed before the end of this year.

The Bluetooth capabilities not only enable customers to better engage customers and guests with easy ways to get them on board, but also offer added insights to improve operational efficiencies. The service includes statistics on guest usage and presence data, which lets businesses provide targeted offers to their customers through mobile devices, offering an additional way to engage them.

"We understand businesses of varying sizes have different operational needs and resource constraints, while also needing advanced capabilities that help increase their competitive advantage," said Kurt Hoffman, president of MegaPath. "Our Managed WiFi service allows business customers to easily understand purchasing habits, tailor interactions and encourage repeat business."

The managed service includes design, installation and continuing administration and technical support of customers’ wireless networks. The new WAPs access customers’ wireless LANs via a cloud-based management dashboard, offering visibility into users, applications and devices that are connected.

MegaPath has also been focused on its back-end network this year, expanding its Dedicated Internet Access service portfolio to provide speeds of up to 1 Gbps throughout the country.
