NETGEAR introduces Business Central

NETGEAR has launched Business Central to provide affordable way to establish, provision and manage key IT networking services and network device for small to mid-sized organizations.

Business Central Wireless Manager is the first module under Business Central which enables companies as well as Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and other Systems Integrators (SIs) to centrally manage an entire wireless network across multiple borders, cities, buildings and floors.

The new platform is Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) which minimizes capital cost of expenditure while providing enterprise-grade service levels with sophisticated client load balancing.

The company said Business Central Wireless Manager delivers managed WiFi for growing organizations that want to centrally manage single or multiple NETGEAR ProSAFE WiFi access points (APs) per site, or hundreds or thousands of access points across multiple sites.

The management function is hosted on the web and operational administrative tasks that are relevant to traditional controller architectures are eliminated.

Additionally, IT administrators have clear, comprehensive and real-time visibility into the network for total control of evolving service needs.


This apart, NETGEAR Business Central Wireless Manager provides centralized control and comprehensive monitoring of all wireless access points and clients directly from the cloud.

The Business Central Wireless Manager supports NETGEAR access points: WNDAP660, WNDAP360, WNDAP350, WNAP320 and WNAP210v2.

“Our Business Central Wireless Manager maximizes ROI and is the optimum tool for easy and cost-effective centralized WiFi management,” said Peter Newton, senior director of product management for the NETGEAR Commercial Business Unit.

NETGEAR Business Central Wireless Manager is available worldwide. It also includes an introductory 90-day free service trial for VARs and their customers.

Last month, NETGEAR added new AC750 Wi-Fi Range Extender with Extra Outlet (EX3800) to its easy-to-use Wi-Fi Range Extenders.
