If you are an Open Mesh user looking for an alternative to CloudTrax, then keep reading, this article is for you.

As you may know, the CloudTrax software that allows you to manage your Open Mesh devices is approaching the end of life in December 2021. The alternatives for Open Mesh users are pretty much reduced down to three:

  1. Migrate all Open Mesh devices to Datto, the technology solutions provider that acquired Open Mesh. However, this comes with some high-stakes investment, and not all the line of devices will be supported.
  2. Dismantle your current Open Mesh networks and deploy from scratch brand new devices. Also, considered an expensive option with all the bearing costs of deploying new networks.
  3. Migrate to Tanaza, the smartest alternative that allows you to reduce costs by 60-70%, reuse your existing Open Mesh devices, add and manage multi-brand APs from a single dashboard. By switching to Tanaza, the cloud-based network management platform, you can manage unlimited APs and networks from the cloud, centralize all your networks in a single platform, and scale networks as needed.

about how Tanaza can be a smart alternative to give
a second chance to your already existing networks.

If you are an Open-Mesh user still wondering what is the best alternative for your Open-Mesh devices, keep reading this article to find out how Tanaza can give a second chance to your already existing networks.

In December 2021, most Open-Mesh devices would reach the end of life date, and the software would no longer offer any updates or firmware bug fixes on those products. Additionally, there would be no further technical support, and no hardware repair services would be available.

The only option for Open-Mesh customers will be to migrate to the Datto platform. This, however, comes at a high price, given the additional recurring expenses that the company’s business model provides. 

What if there was an alternative?

Tanaza enables centralized management on Open Mesh devices.

Tanaza is a WiFi cloud management platform for IT professionals to manage and operate remotely WiFi access points and networks. The Tanaza platform allows Open-Mesh users to quickly install, configure and monitor hundreds of access points via the cloud through an intuitive web interface accessible from computers, tablets, and smartphones.

Tanaza is vendor-agnostic. It has compatibility with the most popular Open-Mesh devices in the market. IT professionals can deploy and manage unlimited access points, mix and match devices from multiple brands like Ubiquiti, Mikrotik, TP-Link, and Ligowave, among others. 

Furthermore, thanks to partnerships with OEM vendors, the Tanaza Operating System can run out-of-the-box in selected devices from Comfast, Amer Networks, Intelbras, and DCN, for a plug-and-play experience. Still, IT professionals can manage all the devices from a single dashboard. Game-changer, right?

Why should you choose Tanaza for your Open Mesh deployments?

The Tanaza platform offers multiple functions, which allows you to significantly reduce the configuration and installation times of even complex WiFi networks:

Centralized configuration

Users can increase efficiency with Tanaza by configuring, managing and monitoring multiple organizations and WiFi networks, cloud-based access points, SSIDs, and client devices from a single platform.

Tanaza lets users set the basic configurations of the network applied by default to all the cloud-managed access points in that network. This feature ensures an issue-free, fast and easy provisioning of new access points, especially in large-scale WiFi networks. Additionally, in case of disconnection of an access point, due to a new configuration, the system automatically restores the last working settings of the WiFi access point to avoid disruptions in the network.

Remote monitoring

It is possible to monitor WiFi networks and control APs remotely. Tanaza enables users to check the WiFi network’s performance indicators thanks to real-time statistics at the WiFi network and access point level.

You can control how many client devices are currently associated with an SSID and how much bandwidth they are consuming and identify possible bottlenecks in bandwidth demand. Furthermore, oversee the access points’ health status, mostly if the number of connections requested increases. Reboot WiFi access points at a specific hour and weekday or schedule WiFi network maintenance to minimize slowness and load peaks after a long uptime. All of that avoids going on-site since no hardware controllers are required.

Cloud-based platform

Tanaza represents the best alternative to the on-premises and hybrid-cloud deployments because there’s no need for physical hardware controllers. It relies its cloud platform on the Amazon Web Services (AWS), guaranteeing the market’s highest security levels while running on a robust cloud infrastructure.

Tanaza takes care of many operations, including server maintenance, back-up, security patches, and fixes, and ensures the system’s high availability for minimum downtime and productivity losses.

Zero-touch deployment

Network administrators can set the network’s basic configurations, applied by default to all the cloud-managed access points in that network remotely, and send the APs pre-configured to the customer’s site for installation. It’s also possible to reconfigure access points without rebooting them or restarting the services, all from the Tanaza dashboard. Moreover, you can easily migrate from CloudTrax/Datto to Tanaza, thanks to the auto-provisioning and cloud configurations.

Intuitive user-interface

The Tanaza platform offers an intuitive and user-friendly interface: the deployment, configuration, and remote monitoring of WiFi networks become a child’s game even for those who have not the technical skills to handle the software.

Integrations

You can integrate third-party applications provided by official Tanaza Partners. Enable any external captive portal on top of the Tanaza cloud platform. 

The Tanaza platform integrates with the Classic Hotspot management system, a platform to manage and monitor public hotspots from the cloud. Customers can set up their free and paid hotspots through a captive portal and customizable splash pages, with social login and voucher-based authentication, to grant guests access to the WiFi.

Classic Hotspot also works as a useful marketing tool to collect information stored within the Analytics dashboard and segment users to run engaging marketing campaigns.
