The next generation of Managed Wi-Fi Service offerings have distinct requirements and challenges.
These offer unique challenges to both the business and the architects defining the underlying technology solutions. As architects and engineers are beginning to create solutions for these services, there are numerous requirements which need to be considered. The Service Provider will need to find the right balance between deploying these services in the Edge and the Premise Edge. The Service Provider may need to leverage multiple edges depending on the customer requirements. Careful analysis of the offering, the functions and the benefits will be required as Service Provider’s aim to solve these fundamental questions surrounding these Managed Services. This analysis will review the offerings, the functions, analyzing the benefits of each architecture, and will provide directional guidance regarding the ideal deployment scenarios by use case, making the case for both Edge, the Premise Edge and a hybrid architecture for Service Providers.
