why Wi-Fi management technology 
could be a recession-proof investment.

The following article expresses opinions based on previous economic studies and it has not valid scientific evidences.

Unlike other article with informative / scientific purposes, the following text is deliberately written to present what are the points in favor for evaluating an investment in Wi-Fi management technologies during an economic recession.

Nobody can predict the long-term course of an economic downturn and for this reason the following analysis is based on studies and economic sources that concern the current economic landscape, what other companies are doing, what ChatGPT in Bing search suggests in February 2023.

The following information may change while this article is online

[○ LAST UPDATE – 13th February 2023].

The last analysis by the Bureau of Economic Analysis on Q1, Q2, and Q3 for U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) has shown the first signals for the next global recession. Q4 and the first forecasts for 2023 seem to re-confirm this trend.

Should MSPs, ISPs, and SPs invest in WiFi Management technology? How are the major players in the market approaching the recession? And, why could WiFi cloud management be considered a recession-proof investment?

In Tanaza, we tried to answer these questions, which are popular among our users and in general in the industry. We have analyzed the situation by considering recent economic publications, avoiding as best of our possibilities forced-optimistic biased data.

The networking industry has not faced a similar economic scenario, and for this reason, it’s quite difficult to create comparisons with the past. The 2008-2009 Great Recession was different, the industry itself was organized differently.
Furthermore, the current economic environment includes complicating factors, such as inflation and the war in Ukraine. Consider the following answers as a point of reference to understand what’s happening in a dynamic contest.

Should MSPs, ISPs and SPs invest in WiFi Cloud Management solutions?

MSPs, ISPs, and SPs should not be afraid of a drastic drop in Wi-Fi demand. A study by Recon Analytics presented by FierceWireless explains that “Americans and world-wide citizens are prioritizing home internet and mobile service over most other recurring bills they have.” The domestic market will prefer to invest in Wi-Fi technology because it’s more economic than mobile data, and this technology offers major control over signal features. This trend seems to be confirmed by the study of about the WiFi global market size. The market will grow from USD 12.3 billion in 2022 to USD 31.3 billion in 2027, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 20.4% during at least 2 years of recession. refers to how the Wi-Fi market is projected to reach a value of US$ 54.53 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 13.70% during the same period 2022-2027.

With a similar expansion in a turbulent economy, Wi-Fi is considerably a recession-proof investment for MSPs, ISPs, and SPs.
Also if there are different economic schools of thought about the gravity of the recession, cloud technology shows in general to be resilient to the recession.
Fortune Business Insights affirms that the market is expected to grow from USD 130.69 billion in 2021 to USD 716.52 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 27.5% during the 2021-2028 period.

To guarantee the highest transparency and not influence with forcibly positive numbers, we have selected these data sources because they have the most valuable and updated methodologies of primary and secondary research and data triangulation.

Investment in a WiFi cloud management solution is highly recommended. Tanaza allows to configure, manage and monitor high-scalable networks helping MSPs, ISPs and SPs to maintain certain stability also during downturns.

What does ChatGPT in Bing Search answer?

ChatGPT in Bing Search is currently (February 2023) one of the most advanced AI search engines to aggregate the most valuable data and answers on the Web.

ChatGPT’s answers may have biases (they are not published on academic publications/peer-to-review patents) but, in general, they contain authoritative information extracted from the main economical sources that monitor how the recession could impact.

Here is the ChatGPT answer to the question “Is WiFi management technology a recession-proof investment for MSPs, ISPs and SPs?
“It is difficult to say definitively whether investing in WiFi management technology is a recession-proof investment for MSPs, ISPs and SPs. However, there are several factors that suggest that demand for WiFi management technology may remain relatively stable even during economic downturns.

First, wireless Internet usage continues to increase as more and more devices and services rely on wireless connectivity. This means that there is likely to be continued demand for reliable and efficient WiFi networks and the tools to manage them.

In addition, many companies and organizations have embraced remote working and virtual collaboration because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created a need for secure and reliable WiFi networks both at work and at home. This trend may continue even when the pandemic subsides.

That said, it is worth noting that the technology industry as a whole may be affected by economic downturns, and MSPs, ISPs, and SPs may see a breakthrough in demand for their services during such periods. However, given the continued growth in wireless Internet use, investment in WiFi management technology could still be a relatively stable investment in the long run.”

Why could WiFi cloud management be considered a recession-proof investment?

Considering the data presented in the previous chapter, WiFi cloud management solutions can be considered a recession-proof investment.
People need WiFi more than ever and they are ready to renounce other domestic services just to be able to work, play, and stay connected with friends and the world.
The quality of the required connection is increasing.
Investing in Tanaza, MSPs, ISPs, and SPs can decrease their CAPEX / OPEX saving money to re-invest in:

– research and development;
– avoid employee layoffs;
– create a solid resistance to market fluctuations.

about how network downtime impacts
on MSPs, ISPs and SPs budget.

Network downtime is one of the most expensive issues for MSPs, ISPs and SPs network architectures. It’s unavoidable, systematic and often unpredictable.
The most relevant study conducted by Gartner has demonstrated that network downtime can cost on average up to $9,000 per minute.
Organization size is also a key factor. For Fortune 1,000 companies, network downtime could cost as much as $1 million per hour, according to an IDC survey. And while the typical mid-sized company spends $1 million per year on incidents, large enterprises can spend up to $60 million or more, according to a research report from IHS.

Considering the pure math without taking in consideration generic case studies, also Cloudscale has mathematically demonstrated through a computational algorithm the relationship “network downtime = money loss”.

Network Downtime Formula


LR is the Lost Revenue
GR is the Gross yearly Revenue
BT is the total Business Time (in minutes)
I is the percentage of revenue impacted by the down time (an online retail business could see 100% impact whereas a sole proprietor insurance company could be 60%)
T is the downtime

Today the effects of a downtime have direct consequences on loss of company revenue.
Wherever is the cause of a network downtime, MSPs, ISPs and SPs have to consider implementing solutions to mitigate or prevent network downtime.

What are the causes of network downtime?

The IS-IS protocol (ISO/IEC 10589:2002 – included in the OSI model) classifies network downtime in six classes:

Level 0 – Network is down
Level 1 – Part of the network is down
Level 2 – Most of the network is down
Level 3 – All of the network is down except for a few isolated systems
Level 4 – Most of the network is down, but some systems are still functioning
Level 5 – All systems are functioning, but there are performance issues

These categories are used to help network administrators understand the extent of the network downtime and to identify the root cause of the problem. By understanding the level of downtime, administrators can prioritize their efforts to restore the network and minimize the impact on users.

What are the most common causes for network downtime at OSI Layers?

1) Faults, errors or discards in network devices (Layer 2)
2) Wrong device configuration changes (Layer 2)
3) Operational human errors and mismanagement of devices (Multiple Layers)
4) Link failure caused due to fiber cable cuts or network congestion (Layer 1-2)
5) Power outages (Layer 1)
6) Server hardware failure (Layer 4)
7) Denial of service (DoS) (Multiple Layers)
8) Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) (Multiple Layers)
8) Failed software and firmware upgrade or patches (Layer 7)
9) Incompatibility between firmware and hardware device (Layer 7)
10) Other external causes (Multiple Layers)

Fing App (now a Tanaza add-on) has precise and updated real-time and historical lists of network downtime, divided by countries, duration, recurrence, severity, impact. Network administrators can read details about each single network downtime or visualize them in bulk thanks to real-time interactive maps:

The importance of an outage detector system integrated in Tanaza WiFi cloud management

An outage detector system is a network management application that allows the monitoring of network infrastructure’s faults and errors, proposing solutions and tips to fix them and checking the ISP status.

Outage detector systems are fundamental for MSPs, ISPs, and SPs that want to reduce and prevent network issues and avoid the aforementioned costs caused by outages.

The activation of the Fing App in the Tanaza cloud platform allows to identify what network endpoint is hurt by the outage.

Network administrators can visually and fastly identify what types of clients (smartphone, laptop, printer, etc) are connected to the networks thanks to an intuitive list of minimal icons.
Depending on the chosen plan for the add-on, each client will show relevant network information including the status and the classification of connection, type and brand of WiFi client, bandwidth values (download and upload mbps) and OS information (name, version, build).

Fing and Tanaza have combined their core technologies to create the advanced outage WiFi notification system. Thanks to Tanaza + Fing add-on, network administrators can understand if the APs are offline for internet outages around the world, improving their efficiency to inform their customers about recovery times and responsibilities. The add-on is compatible with the main ISPs of each country and allows network managers to compare them by rating and reviews in order to identify in real-time the best solution for internet connection.

Fing App is able to register real-time ISP connection status data, including information about the severity of outage (on a scale of 5 values: minor, moderate, considerable, major, critical), outage duration and recurrence, and geographical impacted areas.

For this reason, Tanaza and Fing add-on is based on an AI-algorithm that operates in a fully automatic way, with no need for manual reporting.

the technical guide to 6GHz
for MSPs, ISPs and SPs.

After only two years after the approval by the FCC regulations and Wi-Fi Alliance (and the progressive approval by the national regulatory authorities in Japan, UE, Latin America) to open up the 6GHz band for unlicensed Wi-Fi broadcasting, the main networking OEMs have already launched the first WiFi6E access points.

The number of 6GHz supported access points is expected to reach 2.3 billion of which 350 million are Wi-Fi 6E capable. More than 400 products are now Wi-Fi 6E certified, Wi-Fi Alliance says.
Wi-Fi 6 APs constituted more than 76% of the shipments in the period according to IDC.
In previous articles, we have discussed this frequency range, the future of WiFi6E – WiFi 7 and the differences between 2.4GHz and 5GHz.
In this article, we have written a technical guide about the 6GHz frequency for MSPs, ISPs, SPs and about the differences between 6GHz, 5GHz and 2.4GHz.
Recently, Lee Badman – one of the most important authorities in the networking sector – has expressed his frustration about the lack of technical documentation for wireless products and technologies. As tech lovers, before being networking professionals, we can only agree.

This technical guide is quite long, but its length is fundamental to explain all the facets of the revolutionary 6Ghz.

The 6GHz band frequency

The 6GHz frequency, introduced with the new Wi-Fi 6E standard (802.11 ax), works in the worldwide range between 5.925 and 7.125 GHz (1200MHz grant of the spectrum) and has a theoretical top speed of 9.6 Gbps (the same as the 5GHz).
While the 6 GHz band is continuous and channelized across the entire 1200 MHz, network users are active in all sub-bands. The 6 GHz band frequency uses 59 channels of 20 MHz bandwidth. The channel numbers overlap with the current 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band.

Following the same distribution model of the other bands, each country has enabled the spectrum in different sub-bands.

The FCC has designated four sub-bands for the US territory: U-NII-5, 6, 7, and 8.
The EU Commission, instead, allows network operators to exploit the “U-NII-5 equivalent” part of the band, the lower one: 480 MHz after the 20 MHz guard band.

These data are updated at 08/03/2022

The tripled spectrum allows a fast rollout of new APs and network devices and enables more non-overlapping Wi-Fi channels.

This band frequency includes the orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) feature from cellular technologies, which takes advantage of servicing multiple users on sub-channels transmitted simultaneously. 6GHz supports the native orthogonal frequency division.
OFDMA allows the transmission of significant quantities of data over a single noisy channel. This technique works by splitting a single signal into multiple smaller transmitted signals. OFDMA is perfect for medium-far transmissions, while MU MIMO is more indicated for short-range.

6 GHz spectrum access approaches

Dynamic random spectrum access and contentionbased protocols require access to multiple channels to maintain acceptable performance.

< Low levels of latency – Fully-Scheduled Traffic
> High Capacity on Cutting edge-devices
> More precise positioning
> More than 700 access points of the market supports 6GHz

Features introduced by the 6GHz band

6GHz introduces new ‘in-band’ features for:
airtime efficiency;
faster passive/active AP discovery.

Airtime efficiency

Beacon Changes

This feature removes information elements for older generations: add some parameters to Wi-Fi 6 operations and configuration information elements.

Multi-BSSID Beacon

This feature avoids sending repetitive information elements in separate beacons or probe responses. It allows for improved airtime efficiency.

New Rules for Probing

The 6GHz frequency band doesn’t allow probes in nor-PSC channels unless a beacon is received.
It allows probes in PSC channels.

Faster passive/active AP discovery

6GHz Passive AP discovery

Fast Initial Link Setup (FILS) AP discovery

This passive feature announces each device every 20 msec (TUs – 20-time units). FILS frame includes multiple fields and subfields populated with primary channel operating class identification, SSID, BSSID, and critical channel information. All this information is necessary for a client device to decide whether the AP is suitable for connection.

Unsolicited probe response frames AP discovery

This passive feature announces each device every 20 msec (TUs – 20-time units). It can contain the same information elements as a ‘normal’ probe response, but they are transmitted to the broadcast address. Thanks to this no-frame exchange transmission by the AP, the contention loss to get this information to a client device is low. All this information is necessary for a client device to decide whether the AP is suitable for connection.

6GHz Active AP discovery

Preferred Scanning Channels (PSC)

Preferred Scanning Channels (PSCs) are a group of 1 in 4 20 MHz channels designated for beacons and discovery that have priority within the 6 GHz Wi-Fi band.
Instead of scanning the entire 6 GHz spectrum for an optimal channel, devices that support 6GHz can scan PSCs for efficient connectivity. Clients can only send probes requests on every fourth 20 MHz channel.
The complete list of all the 6 GHz PSC channels is 5, 21, 37, 53, 69, 85, 101, 117, 133, 149, 165, 181, 197, 213, 229.

What is the difference between 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz?

The main difference between 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz wireless frequencies are the range (coverage) and bandwidth (speed) that the bands provide.
5GHz and 6GHz are faster than 2.4 GHz, but they have more difficulties penetrating solid surfaces, such as walls and floors. In 2022, the number of devices on the market that operate on 2.4GHz is much higher than the 5GHz and 6GHz ones. These bands tend to have less overcrowding interference from other devices and can guarantee a better data transmission level.

Valid channels number and PSC Channels in 6GHz radio

Is it better to connect to 2.4 GHz, 5GHz or 6GHz?

The best frequency among these depends on inherent hardware features and the real-time radio-frequency environment.

Tanaza cloud management dashboard has specific features with which network engineers can easily manage hundreds or thousands of AP frequencies. They can switch from 2.4GHz to 5 GHz (and soon also to 6GHz thanks to the release of new Tanaza Powered Devices and Tanaza Compatible Devices)

For each AP, MSPs, ISPs, and SPs can select the radio mode, the channel and channel width, and the TX power.

To obtain the maximum signal spread and reduce the propagation loss, the technical conformation of each frequency suggests using the 2.4GHz band for 2.4 GHz radio-supported devices and IoT devices. Older 5Ghz may fall into a ‘legacy’ category and be moved to this band to avoid dragging down the performance of preferred clients in the 5 GHz band.

5 GHz becomes the band for mainstream high-performance devices that are not 6 GHz capable, allowing non-preferred devices to be relegated to 2.4 GHz as above.

The 6 GHz band can be used for the latest, highest-performance devices, almost by definition in the first few years of rollout. It benefits not only from the highest rates available but also from the lack of legacy equipment and lower noise levels in the band.

Elegir los mejores puntos de acceso WiFi para restaurantes es mucho más importante de lo que pensamos. Los puntos de acceso son la columna vertebral de cualquier red inalámbrica. Por lo tanto, es importante elegir el hardware adecuado, ya que garantiza la construcción de un sistema sólido y escalable que pueda manejar la cantidad adecuada de conexiones por dispositivo y mantener la fiabilidad de la red en función de sus necesidades de conectividad.

Al desplegar una nueva red WiFi, es importante buscar el punto de acceso adecuado para mejorar la conectividad de los huéspedes. El tipo de puntos de acceso que pueda necesitar dependerá del entorno en el que se vaya a desplegar. Además, es primordial proporcionar una conectividad sin fisuras que permita a los usuarios desplazarse libremente por todo el espacio.

Cómo elegir el punto de acceso WiFi adecuado para los restaurantes

Medir el tamaño del restaurante y comprobar los obstáculos físicos para la señal WiFi

El primer paso para elegir el punto de acceso adecuado para su restaurante es medir el tamaño del mismo. Compruebe cuál es el espacio que necesita cubrir con un punto de acceso. Si acaba de abrir un nuevo restaurante con menos afluencia, por ejemplo de 10 a 30 personas, necesitará muchos menos puntos de acceso que los que podría necesitar para una afluencia de 30 a 80 personas. Si piensa en expandirse en breve, puede considerar la posibilidad de elegir un punto de acceso con una amplia gama para prepararse para su crecimiento.

Además, hay que tener en cuenta muchos factores, como la forma de la planta, el tipo de edificio o los materiales de las paredes que dividen el espacio. El número de puntos de acceso necesarios en un lugar aumenta si las paredes internas separan la zona.

Eliminar cualquier obstáculo físico innecesario mejorará la conectividad del punto de acceso. Un estudio exhaustivo de su restaurante también ayudará a determinar cuántos puntos de acceso necesitará.

Número de usuarios simultáneos: comprueba cuántos usuarios están conectados al WiFi

Dependiendo del tamaño del local, el número de usuarios simultáneos conectados a la red también variará. Por ejemplo, una red de un restaurante grande puede albergar aproximadamente un máximo de 30 usuarios concurrentes de WiFi, mientras que un restaurante de tamaño medio puede albergar un máximo de 12 usuarios concurrentes. Por lo tanto, es importante tener en cuenta la cobertura de clientes cuidadosamente al diseñar la red WiFi.

Además, diferentes factores pueden afectar al número de usuarios concurrentes que puede soportar un punto de acceso inalámbrico. Aunque muchos puntos de acceso soportan hasta aproximadamente 250 dispositivos conectados, es importante tener en cuenta que los dispositivos de radio única pueden manejar un número menor de usuarios concurrentes que los puntos de acceso de radio dual.

Predecir el uso de Internet para establecer qué puntos de acceso WiFi funcionan mejor para su restaurante

Es esencial entender el uso de Internet de su restaurante y saber qué tipo de actividad en línea harán sus usuarios de WiFi mientras estén conectados a su red WiFi. Conocer el uso de Internet es necesario para elegir el punto de acceso adecuado para su restaurante.

Algunas aplicaciones consumen más ancho de banda que otras. La tasa de transferencia de datos se calcula en bits por segundo. Este bit/segundo es bastante menor cuando los clientes simplemente navegan por la web, envían mensajes y chatean en Facebook, Whatsapp o Telegram, o simplemente revisan sus correos electrónicos. Sin embargo, cuando la gente comparte o descarga las imágenes y los archivos en DropBox y Google Drive, el número de bits/segundo transmitido a través de su red aumentará.

Además, si los usuarios invitados transmiten vídeos en YouTube o Netflix, o realizan llamadas y videollamadas VoIP, el número de bits/segundo aumenta considerablemente. Por lo tanto, es importante predecir el uso de Internet de antemano para ofrecer a tus invitados una experiencia WiFi óptima. El punto de acceso maneja diferentes números de usuarios concurrentes dependiendo del uso de Internet de los clientes.

Elija los mejores puntos de acceso WiFi para restaurantes, teniendo en cuenta las variables tecnológicas

Teniendo en cuenta las variables tecnológicas, se elegirían los mejores puntos de acceso WiFi para los usuarios invitados. Aparte del rendimiento del punto de acceso, si la señal de la red WiFi no llega a los usuarios, el número de clientes simultáneos conectados a la red en un lugar será limitado.

Por lo tanto, lleve a cabo un estudio adecuado del emplazamiento de su restaurante para elegir el punto de acceso adecuado. Son muchas las expectativas que se tienen de un punto de acceso concreto, desde el rendimiento de la velocidad, la facilidad de instalación, la capacidad de gestión en la nube y la estabilidad del software. Los puntos de acceso con funciones de gestión en la nube son imprescindibles para cualquier proveedor de restaurantes. Permiten a los administradores de red controlar los dispositivos y personalizar el ancho de banda al tiempo que supervisan el rendimiento general de la red y los problemas de seguridad.

La alimentación a través de Ethernet (PoE) es una técnica que pasa la corriente eléctrica a través de redes de área local ethernet por cable. Permite que los cables de alimentación lleven la corriente eléctrica de cada dispositivo en lugar de los cables de datos. El uso de POE limita el número de cables necesarios para una red Wifi. El principal beneficio del POE es que no es necesario tender cableado eléctrico, lo que ahorra dinero en material y ahorra tiempo de instalación. El uso de POE ha hecho que las instalaciones de puntos de acceso sean relativamente más fáciles y escalables.

Por otro lado, LAN es una red informática que interconecta ordenadores dentro de un área limitada. A diferencia de la alimentación a través de Ethernet, en el cable LAN se requiere una fuente de alimentación externa (adaptador) para obtener la energía.

802.11ac vs 802.11n

El 802.11ac y el 802.11n son los estándares de redes inalámbricas que difieren significativamente entre sí. El IEEE 802.11ac se finalizó en 2013 y admite una frecuencia inalámbrica de sólo 5 Hz. Es la quinta generación de WiFi y se encuentra en todos los principales smartphones, portátiles, ordenadores y televisores inteligentes. La versión mejorada de 802.11ac ofrece una mayor velocidad, un mejor alcance y un mayor rendimiento del WiFi.

En cambio, el estándar de red inalámbrica 802.11n se finalizó en 2009. Utiliza varias antenas para aumentar la velocidad de datos y es compatible con las frecuencias inalámbricas de 2,4 y 5 GHz. En términos de velocidad, 802.11ac es capaz de alcanzar 720Mbps (Megabits/seg.), mientras que 802.11n fija su velocidad en 240Mbps.

Aquí se sabe claramente quién es el ganador. Como 802.11n utiliza frecuencias inalámbricas de 2,4 y 5 GHz, supera a la 5ª generación de WiFi, que sólo utiliza 5 GHz. Las bandas de frecuencia más altas son comparativamente más rápidas, pero las bandas más bajas llegan más lejos.

Determinar la ubicación del punto de acceso WiFi para mejorar la cobertura

Tener sólo un punto de acceso adecuado no determinará una conectividad perfecta. Si ha colocado un punto de acceso WiFi para un restaurante, debe encontrar una ubicación adecuada para mejorar su cobertura. Se recomienda instalar el punto de acceso inalámbrico en los techos de sus restaurantes, ya que esto proporcionará una conectividad total a todo el local.

Además, la parte superior del punto de acceso debe estar orientada hacia la zona de servicio prevista para mejorar la cobertura. Este es el lugar donde se sitúan las antenas de un punto de acceso.

El punto de acceso nunca debe estar obstruido por nada, como techos abatibles, televisores o cámaras. De hecho, estos puntos de acceso se ven afectados por otros dispositivos que transmiten radiofrecuencia. Por lo tanto, las interferencias provocan una conectividad débil e inestable. Por lo tanto, asegúrese de que su punto de acceso está colocado lejos de las fuentes de radio más comunes, como televisores, microondas/hornos, altavoces, cámaras de seguridad inalámbricas, y muchos más.

Seleccione los tipos de antena de punto de acceso WiFi adecuados: direccional frente a omnidireccional

Depende totalmente de su conectividad de red para elegir entre los dos tipos de antenas de punto de acceso WiFi. Una es direccional y la otra es omnidireccional. La antena omnidireccional es la que envía señales a todas las direcciones, mientras que la direccional, como su nombre indica, envía una señal a una sola dirección.

Después de analizar la conectividad de tu red, puedes decidir elegir la antena de punto de acceso WiFi adecuada. Las antenas direccionales se consideran una mejor opción ya que envían una señal en una dirección específica. Puede mejorar la conectividad de su red apuntando la antena en la dirección en la que falta la señal.

Pruebe un enfoque multiproveedor si quiere reducir costes
