The global economic value of WiFi reaches $1.96 trillion in 2018

The global economic value of WiFi in 2018

A report commissioned by the Wi-Fi Alliance estimates that the annual global economic value of WiFi is $1.96 trillion in 2018, and predicts that it will grow in the next five years by almost 80%, surpassing $3.47 trillion by 2023.

This report, completed by the Telecom Advisory Services, also points out WiFi’s role in creating job opportunities in different countries by evaluating its impact on different employment categories. It is forecasted that WiFi will create over one million jobs by 2023, a 50% increase in employment rate from 2018.

According to the report, WiFi is having a positive impact on the economy in four main categories:

  • Expanding consumer choice by developing alternative technologies (i.e. mesh networking systems);
  • Serving as a platform for the creation of innovative business models that develop and deliver unique services (i.e. remote cloud management services);
  • Expanding access to communication services for mobile and fixed networks;
  • Enhancing the effectiveness of wireline and cellular technologies by complementing them (i.e. with WiFi hotspots).

 

WiFi’s value to consumers and producers and its contribution to GDP

Due to diverse unlicensed spectrum environments, the true economic value of WiFi has always been difficult to determine. This report defines its economic value by taking into account the tangible, economic gains that WiFi provides to consumers and producers, as well as its net contribution to Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

Nowadays, WiFi’s value to consumers both inside and outside of the home is indisputable. WiFi is now so pervasive that its availability is taken for granted in many countries and its importance in everyday life often goes unrecognized. Most devices and home appliances use WiFi and are doing so at a growing rate. WiFi was installed in approximately 800 million households around the world and more than 340 million hotspots provided access to consumers, as of 2016.

WiFi also creates value on the production’s end: indeed, equipment manufacturers (access points, routers, gateways, controllers, but also appliances with built-in WiFi capability) and mobile carriers that rely on WiFi to offload traffic from their networks, all profit from its use.

Moreover, WiFi contributes to GDP growth by delivering undeniable social benefits: indeed, it provides a useful application to reduce the digital divide in rural or isolated territories, as well as an essential platform for free Internet access.

The value of WiFi and its growth estimate on six individual markets

In addition to defining WiFi’s economic impact on a global scale, the research also analyzes the individual economies of six different countries, underlining the value of WiFi and stressing the need for adequate unlicensed spectrum to ensure WiFi keeps delivering to economies, businesses and consumers.

The United States is at the top of the list: in this country, WiFi contributes $499 billion in economic value today and is expected to contribute $993 billion by 2023. Japan, Germany, and South Korea follow with respectively $171 billion, $94 billion, and $68 billion in Wi-Fi economic value as of 2018.

Value of WiFi on six individual markets

A dominant engine in the digital ecosystem

“Wi-Fi has a powerful and often underestimated economic impact all over the world,“ WiFi Alliance president and CEO of Edgar Figueroa stated. “This study brings attention to the tremendous economic benefit from Wi-Fi, and underscores the importance of favorable spectrum policy to ensure Wi-Fi continues delivering even greater economic and societal benefits for many years to come.”

“Wi-Fi technology should be recognized as one of the dominant economic engines of the digital ecosystem,” said Raul Katz, research author and President of Telecom Advisory Services. “Governments should develop the right incentives to stimulate the social and economic benefits of Wi-Fi, including assigning enough spectrum to avoid congestion across the globe, promoting the development of start-ups that rely on Wi-Fi to create applications, and leveraging Wi‑Fi technology to address the digital divide barrier.”

This research is an important step in validating WiFi’s role as a key indicator of economic health and market opportunity, as a new wireless generation approaches.

Indeed, WiFi creates value in different vertical markets, such as hospitality, education, public transportation, healthcare and retail to name a few, and many companies are successful in those sectors using Tanaza WiFi.

Should Tanaza support TRENDnet devices? Let us know!

Recently, one of our partners has mentioned us the TRENDnet access points and has requested us, whether we can make their wireless devices supported by Tanaza.

We like the idea of consumer-driven development and we continuously collect ideas for new features and compatible devices through our community success.tanaza.com. This means that if you want TRENDnet products to be made compatible with Tanaza, you just have to click on the links below and vote for devices. Our product team will review requests and will put devices on our roadmap if we receive many.

 

Well, let’s see what these devices do and how Tanaza’s firmware could improve their performances and management.

 

THE PRODUCT CATEGORIES

TRENDnet has a wide range of products, including routers, access points, adapters, extenders/repeaters, modems, switches, Power over Ethernet devices, Powerline communication devices, wired, USB, surveillance products.

In the networking hardware category, they have both wireless n devices (which include the well-known n300 TRENDnet router) and the high-speed (wireless ac) equipment.

The most powerful device in their portfolio is the TEW-829DRU ($263 on Amazon.com as of today), a tri-band access point with an excellent set of features and advanced settings, which, unfortunately, do not include any wireless controller feature or cloud management capability. The price tag is quite high, but that access point makes for a robust home network.

For businesses willing to install their devices on ceilings and use PoE to power them, TRENDnet markets the TEW-821DAP2KAC, a good option for businesses in need of a very simple captive portal and guest access functionality, managing up to 128 devices. Ideally, the kit might be used in offices to connect local devices and wireless-capable laptops through password-encrypted SSIDs.

This kit is a contender of the Ubiquiti UniFi family with the Ubiquiti UniFi Controller, but the UI is definitely less user-friendly and the price tag is higher ($349.99 on Amazon.com as of today for the kit including 2 wireless APs and PoE injectors).

We have seen the most powerful indoor devices and the best offering of TRENDnet for small and medium businesses. Let’s see know how making devices compatible with Tanaza improves their performances and adds new functionalities to them, and the list of products that Tanaza might make compatible in the future.

BENEFITS OF USING TANAZA’S FIRMWARE ON TRENDNET’S DEVICES

After one of our partners requested us to support these devices, we read a lot of web reviews about TRENDnet’s routers. However, our analysis was not 100% complete, so in case you have any specific questions about their products we encourage you to directly contact them at their support phone number, which is: +1-866-845-3673. Or just consult their website https://www.trendnet.com/.

What we have discovered, is that TRENDnet has an excellent set of features, quite extensive although not available on all devices. These features include parental controls, isolating guest networks from your devices and content, pre-encrypted WiFi ready-to-use out of the box, maps to locate access points within a location, guest networks (one SSID per each band), bandwidth management, system logs, diagnostic tools.

Using Tanaza’s firmware and cloud-based software has many sought-after benefits:

  • Possibility to create hybrid networks made of devices of various brands and product families: for example, you can extend your TRENDnet networks with Ubiquiti devices, and still manage all of them from a single centralized dashboard.
  • Compatibility with the latest products available but also (if requested) with discontinued and end-of-life products, which is a much-requested feature in the case the end user doesn’t want to change their wireless equipment for budget constraints.
  • A wide set of features for cloud management, including:
    • a nice and user-friendly UI which everyone understands in a blink of an eye without any training
    • a management dashboard which is accessible anytime, from anywhere, so that MSPs can manage their networks distributed across hundreds of locations comfortably from their desk (or sofa, if you like comfort)
    • reliable and highly-available infrastructure managed by Tanaza, with no need to check for firmware updates or to maintain the network, because you will be informed about future firmware releases from the cloud and you can upgrade your devices remotely (also in bunches).
    • Bandwidth control per SSID and per USER with a boost function
    • Managing all settings from the cloud, including VLANs, NAT, DHCP, TX power, channel selection and other radio settings, SSIDs, captive portal appearance, the password for WiFi access and so on – with settings applied in seconds remotely.
    • Advanced capabilities such as Syslog configuration, SSH and user scripts
  • An even wider set of features for guest access and hotspot management, including:
    • Social login, form-based authentication, coupons for paid WiFi and other much-requested authentication methods
    • Dashboard to see users’ details and contact information and interact with them
    • APIs and native integration with Mailchimp for email marketing to wifi users
    • A flexible, user-friendly tool to create multi-language responsive splash pages with advanced functionalities (advertising, social actions, acceptance of multiple terms and conditions, etc.) to solve any use case you might have

PARTNERING WITH  TANAZA

Whether you are working with TRENDnet devices or not, you might want to know how to use Tanaza. Well, here are the two basic things you need to know:

How to improve hotel WiFi with bandwidth control per client

hotel WiFi with bandwidth control

Hotels should provide reliable Internet bandwidth to improve the overall guest WiFi experience. Tanaza allows increasing hotel WiFi network performance thanks to its newly-released Bandwidth Control per Client feature.

According to a recent survey carried out by Forbes, almost 50% of hotel guests consider free WiFi a top priority. Leisure travellers expect to find fast guest Internet access to browse the web, to stay in contact with their friends and family on Whatsapp and social media, to upload pictures of their vacation on Instagram and Facebook, to stream music and video content on Youtube and Netflix, etc. At the same time, business tourists expect reliable WiFi services to share files on Google Drive, perform video conference calls (VoIP and Whatsapp calls and real-time communication on Skype), access their email accounts, etc. As guest satisfaction is key to improve guest loyalty and hotel bookings, it is crucial to allocate hotel bandwidth properly.  

In general, bandwidth consumption depends on a range of factors, mainly the environment of the hospitality venue, the number of concurrent users being connected to the hotel WiFi network and the type of Internet applications guests are using – from low bandwidth apps, i.e. web surfing and instant messaging, to bandwidth-hungry apps, i.e. video calls and video streaming. Given the increasing amount of WiFi-enabled devices per user, together with the proliferation of different internet applications, it is difficult to provide a smooth WiFi experience to all hotel guests at the same time. Tanaza helps hoteliers overcome this problem.

Tanaza has just released its innovative Bandwidth Control per Client feature, which allows hotel network administrators to set a per-user guest WiFi bandwidth limit.

Tanaza allows to limit bandwidth both per SSID and per user, at the same time. For instance, if the hotel IT manager has a total bandwidth of 25Mbps available, he might decide to allocate 20Mbps for guest WiFi on an SSID and the remaining 5Mbps for the hotel staff on a separated SSID. At the same time, considering the 20Mbps of bandwidth available for guest WiFi, he can decide to provide each hotel guest with 300Kbps.

With this new bandwidth control tool, network admins can now enable bandwidth upload and download limitations per user, at the SSID level. This means that all guests being simultaneously connected to the hotel network benefit from the same WiFi performance.

A unique aspect of Tanaza’s per-client bandwidth control feature is its ability to avoid “bandwidth hog”, the term used to identify users consuming more bandwidth than other concurrent users on the same WiFi network. In fact, Tanaza’s Bandwidth Control per Client feature comes with a “boost” function, which allows hotel guests to exceed the bandwidth limit for a few seconds when they use a WiFi service. For instance, let’s suppose that the hotel network admin configures an SSID for guest WiFi with a bandwidth limit of 3Mbps. When a hotel guest performs an online activity, i.e.  streaming a video on Netflix, he will be temporarily allowed to use bandwidth over that limit. At the same time, for a few seconds, he will consume more bandwidth than other concurrent guests.

bandwidth control per client

Thanks to Tanaza’s Bandwidth Control per Client capability, all hotel guests connected to the same SSID will benefit from the same fast and reliable WiFi experience, independently from their Internet usage. By successfully meeting guest expectations regarding WiFi performance, hoteliers can enhance guest loyalty and attract more visitors.

Tanaza for WLAN assurance and centralized consolidated management of wireless networks

WLAN

Tanaza is a platform allowing you to ensure your wireless equipment is working correctly at any point in time. Tanaza helps you identify mistakes in your configuration, which might result in disconnections, degraded performance, and WLAN outages.

 

Centralization of wireless networks management

 

Thanks to Tanaza, managing wireless networks and ensuring high-quality services to customers is a child’s play. No more fragmented wireless assurance tools: network administrators will be able to consolidate their networking infrastructure monitoring, using one single centralised dashboard, and receive automated alerts in case of problems.

 

BYOD

 

Digital enterprises and companies are increasingly allowing employees to use their personal devices at work, but BYOD – Bring your own device – policies are not easy to implement, and devices can quickly get out of control. With its couponing feature, Tanaza allows creating temporary and permanent credentials for internet access, so that each employee has their own password to access the network.

For example, in the picture below, you see three types of coupons created:

  • the green wifi voucher, valid for 1 year for up to three devices, will be given to employees
  • the purple wifi voucher, valid for 30 days for up to three devices, will be given to temporary workers/freelancers/consultants
  • the red wifi voucher, valid for 1 day, will be given to guests

 

coupon

 

Furthermore, the network administrator can easily invalidate existing coupons to deny further access to unwanted clients. When a voucher is deactivated, access to the internet will be automatically prohibited to any device using that voucher to connect.

Security, Krack and IoT

 

In enterprises environments, you will probably have many users and devices connecting to your wireless networks: employees, guests, but also printers, shared laptops, smart TVs, etc.

Thanks to Tanaza, you can easily isolate WLAN clients between each other and also isolate them from LAN resources. For example, guests should not be able to see the printers in the building in the network resources.

Given that employees use critical applications and business services and companies implement policies for work in mobility, security is a primary concern for all network administrators. Tanaza has created a secure cloud infrastructure that separates instances of each customer and isolates the access points’ management traffic and connection to the cloud from the clients’ traffic, as well.

Tanaza is at the forefront in providing security updates for all its devices promptly. For example, the patch for the WPA2 breach known as “Krack” was released in less than 24 hours from the hack’s discovery, allowing all Tanaza Firwmare’s users to secure the wireless connection of all their clients connecting to the wireless LAN in no time.

In the case your enterprise uses wirelessly-connected devices, such as point-of-sale system (used in retail) and sensors (smart cities, hospitals, etc.), Tanaza makes your Wireless LAN secure and provides you with reliable management software. IoT initiatives launched by enterprises pose unprecedented security issues to wireless networks. Tanaza is creating tools to solve this problem, including the newly released Rogue Access Point detection system, which allows identifying devices broadcasting and SSID named as yours, trying to steal your clients’ data and in the worst cases, to sniff their traffic.

Tanaza allows you to detect and analyse these WiFi faults and problems.

 

Improving the network performance and avoiding interference

 

Network administrators need to deliver coverage and performance, ensuring to their users WLAN health and performance. Tanaza provides tools to improve your network performance, such as the automated channel selection avoiding interference. You can use Tanaza to scan beacons around your Access points and choose the channel accordingly. Also, you can let Tanaza do the job on your behalf and select automatically the channel with less interference any time the device reboots.

Reboots can be done manually through a command in the cloud interface, and they can also be scheduled so they happen during the night, without service outages for users and applications.

Tanaza’s intuitive monitoring tool also allows you to check in real-time the quality of the signal for each connected client so that you can identify coverage and interference problems within your network in no time.

Furthermore, this and other data is also available through APIs, so that you can build your own alerting system and troubleshoot the network before problems are noticed by other people. Tanaza allows you to be proactive in building a reliable and solid network, even if you’re using low-cost devices. For example, you might create your own web service which sends you push notifications on your phone in the case the MAC address of the CEO has bad signal, or when an access point has more than 20 people connected, when an access point has an excessive load, etc.

WiFi troubles won’t keep you up at night, as everything will be under control.

 

Unlimited scalability and reduced costs

 

With wirelessly-connected devices increasing at a rapid rate, and mobile devices becoming the most used ones to connect to the internet and work, WLAN is expected to transmit most of the internet traffic in the future.

The application layer, providing guest authentication, WiFi location-tracking services, and many other services, should run on reliable networking infrastructure. However, the costs of creating it are usually very high.

We understand that the increasing expectations of users conflict with the lack of budget and resources troubling network administrators. Users have very low tolerance for problems and performance issue, and solutions’ prices increase each year. Also, most solutions in the market lock you to a vendor’s brand, therefore preventing you from switching to another provider.

Tanaza provides a multi-vendor software that runs on top of low-cost to high-end access points, allowing any business, from SMBs to large enterprises, to benefit from a reliable networking infrastructure. Businesses using Tanaza reduce their CAPEX and are free to switch from one vendor to another, with no switching costs, when they need to. Furthermore, Tanaza’s management and monitoring platform work in the exact same way with all devices, stores the device configuration in the cloud for quick replacement of access points, is offered with a pay-as-you-go formula and is affordable for businesses of any size. Tanaza reduces OPEX and provides the flexibility you need in your fast-paced role.

Tanaza offers unlimited scalability in the number of access points and immediate provisioning and deployment. You will not need hardware controllers anymore, as the controlling layer will be in the cloud. Tanaza Cloud grows with your business and its features and compatibility list are continuously improving.

Why you should schedule your SSID access

Why you should schedule your SSID access

Tanaza features a captive portal that allows you to create up to 8 SSID by access points, a way for the network administrator to secure and separate accesses to the WiFi network. Indeed, each SSID should be set up according to the usage of the network.

For example, when deploying a WiFi network for a restaurant, the WiFi administrator might want to create different network access for the staff and the guests. To do so, the WiFi administrator can create a first SSID protected by a password for the staff, and another SSID for the guest with access through email authentication or social media. In this way, customers will access the SSID through a different door. However, a problem might occur when customers connect to the WiFi network within the closed hours of the restaurant, enjoying a free WiFi connection without any counterpart for the owner of the restaurant.

To solve this problem, we strongly encourage you to schedule your SSID access by setting hours of network’s availability.

Indeed, SSID time restriction allows you to deactivate your SSID when your shop closes so that nobody can access the internet through your Wi-fi network during the night for example.

The SSID availability is not currently featured by Tanaza but still, you can deactivate your SSID by going through your access points settings remotely.

Solution 1: enter to your cloud.tanaza.com account and click on the access point that you want to deactivate.
Click on “settings”, then “SSIDs”. Finally, switch the on/off button to turn off your access point.
Remember to activate it again when you want your SSID to be available.

Solution 2: another possibility for you is to deactivate the SSID by making him invisible.
Go on your SSID settings, click on “wireless security” and switch the button enable/disable to make your SSID invisible
Be careful, the SSID will be invisible only for new WiFi users, while WiFi users already registered will still access to your WiFi network if they are in the network area

Why you should schedule your SSID access

Alternatively, this could be done by showing the SSID name on clients’ devices, while replacing the splash page with a message saying “WiFi guest access is available only between 9 AM and 6 PM at this location”.

In any cases, we strongly advise you to secure your WiFi guest access and to use a web content filtering to avoid any bad usage of your WiFi network.

Tanaza Firmware now available for Ubiquiti Networks’ UniFi AP AC PRO, AC LITE, AC in-wall (IW), AC Mesh, AC Mesh PRO, AC LR long range

With its latest release (firmware 2.17) in December 2017, Tanaza continues its firmware releases for the Ubiquiti Unifi AC access points, starting with the widely used UniFi AC Mesh Pro, UniFi LR (long range) and UniFi AC PRO.

UBNT’s UAP AC APs are widely used by managed solution providers and hotspot providers globally.

Just after a few months from the release of UBNT’s UAP AC APs Tanaza started developing the firmware for these products. In this way, Tanaza allows enterprise-level cloud-management of the whole UBNT’s Unifi 802.11ac series.

Among all Ubiquiti Unifi AC access points, the devices that are already compatible with Tanaza’s software are: Ubiquiti UniFi AP AC PRO, UniFi AC Lite, UniFi AC In-WALL (AC-IW), UniFi AC Mesh, UniFi AC Mesh PRO, and UniFi AC LR (AC Long Range).

Being a cloud-based software, Tanza allows network administrators to manage their multi-vendor devices from the cloud. Also, network admins can manage Ubiquiti Nanostations from the same dashboard they use for their UniFi devices.

Thanks to Tanaza’s software, it is possible to manage the access points from the cloud and create public hotspots with social login as authentication method. Tanaza replaces the stock firmware and adds enterprise configuration capabilities to multi-vendor devices, including TP-Link, Ubiquiti, D-Link, Netgear, Engenius, Ligowave, and others.

In early 2017, Tanaza implemented a new graphic interface and added many features to its software. Among them, it developed a captive portal that is 4.5X faster in comparison to the previous versions and up to 3x faster than other commonly used captive portals. Furthermore, Tanaza has promptly released a patch for the KRACK vulnerability for all Ubiquiti devices, so as to increase the security levels of all access points that run Tanaza’s firmware.

Tanaza allows scalable multi-site, multi-clients wireless network management and monitoring, and eliminates the need for hardware controllers thanks to its smart alerting system, zero-touch deployment, and centralized dashboard. Other valuable features of Tanaza’s software include a responsive and customizable captive portal with social login and social-actions-based login (Facebook Like and Check-in), a multi-role voucher-based login system, APIs, and integrations with Google Analytics and Mailchimp for wifi marketing campaigns.

Tanaza’s firmware can be installed and uninstalled on Ubiquiti Access Points easily, and the software is available for a 15-days free trial with unlimited clients and connected access points.
