Wi-Fi news from Tanaza

Telecom Infra Project and Tanaza Collaborate to Extend Tanaza Platform Compatibility to TIP OpenWiFi™ Access Points.

Today, Tanaza proudly announces the general availability of the Tanaza platform supporting all OpenWiFi™ compliant access points (in addition to the others already supported thanks to the Linux-based TanazaOS). This collaboration with Telecom Infra Project (TIP) marks a significant milestone in the journey towards a disaggregated networking market, pushing the boundaries of innovation and reducing the effects of lock-in strategies applied by incumbents.

The Tanaza platform, a pioneer in hardware/software disaggregation since 2011, has supported various off-the-shelf devices from third-party manufacturers such as Ubiquiti and MikroTik. Now, Tanaza extends its compatibility to ALL OpenWiFi™ compliant devices, giving out-of-the-box interoperability with OpenWiFi™ hardware providers included in the TIP community.

Sebastiano Bertani, CEO of Tanaza, expressed the importance of this achievement, stating, “Our technology has reached widespread global adoption, featuring over 60,000 active access points. It has been utilized by some Tier-1 telco providers, leveraging the synergy of SDN networking and hardware flexibility to empower their B2B managed Wi-Fi offering. Bringing to production OpenWiFi™ compliant hardware has been a natural step for us. It not only enhances Wi-Fi hardware flexibility, but also envisions extending this capability to switches, for a complete “OpenLAN” solution. But most of all, it consolidates a solid foundation to shape the innovation of the next decade, on top of a common layer. For instance, our ChatGPT AI integration (TanazaGPT) enables the control of any networking device connected to our platform, and the same will be for any other App and service built on top, ranging from hyperconvergence to cybersecurity”.

Jack Raynor, TIP OpenLAN™ and OpenWiFi™Co-chair, said, “We are proud of this collaboration with Tanaza. This achievement aligns with our commitment to fostering an open and collaborative ecosystem in the telecommunications industry, transitioning the market from vertically integrated to horizontally structured”.

Milan, Italy – Tanaza, a leading provider of cloud-based wireless management software, and Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, are excited to announce a strategic partnership to provide MSPs and IT professionals with powerful, integrated solutions for wireless networking.

Under this partnership, Tanaza will support Edgecore hardware with its software and Edgecore will make its products available through its distribution partners as Tanaza Powered. This means that they will connect to the Tanaza cloud platform out-of-the-box.

Adopting Tanaza Powered Edgecore APs offers several advantages for MSPs and IT professionals, including:

  • Simplified management: With Tanaza’s cloud-based platform, MSPs and IT professionals can easily and efficiently manage and monitor their customers’ Wi-Fi networks from one place
  • Cost-effective solution, with enterprise-grade hardware: The combination of Edgecore’s robust equipment and the Tanaza platform allows customers to easily scale their networks from small & simple deployments to demanding high-density scenarios
  • Flexible and scalable: Tanaza offers a cost-effective comprehensive feature-set to providers of managed Wi-Fi services. And it can be extended with additional features to meet specific customer requirements, thanks to add-ons and 3rd party integrations in a continuously expanding marketplace
  • Free for small deployments: Under the Tanaza Basic plan, it’s possible to set up a network of up to three APs and keep it operational with no time limit. This means that this first (small) customer could even be managed with Tanaza completely free-of-charge

In addition to this partnership, Edgecore distributor STORDIS (operating from Germany and serving all EMEA), will provide Edgecore EAP102-T Wi-Fi6 devices to selected MSPs. This will allow MSPs to experience firsthand the benefits of the hardware/software combination enabled by this partnership.

Milan, Italy – Tanaza, the leading provider of hardware-agnostic cloud-based Wi-Fi management software, is excited to announce the launch of its new freemium model and marketplace concept. This allows Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to deploy fully cloud-managed Wi-Fi with a wide range of hardware options, from high-performing to cost-effective, easily adding optional software features and third-party applications.

Milan, Italy – January 25, 2023 -Starting today, the Tanaza platform is free for up to three Wi-Fi access points with its Basic plan. This way, MSPs can get familiar with the benefits of software-hardware disaggregation on a small scale and play with no time limit, until they are ready to scale up. At that point, the Pro plan allows them to manage an unlimited number of APs, keeping all customer networks in one place, independently from the hardware used in each deployment.

“There is no limit to the size of Wi-Fi networks you can manage. Some SMEs already use Tanaza to manage their retail locations from one single dashboard. Also, Tier-1/2 ISPs are leveraging Tanaza’s technology to enable their managed B2B Wi-Fi offering, with tens of thousands of APs already deployed while using Tanaza’s APIs to virtualize hardware”, says Massimo Dragoni, Head of Solutions.

“We continue to support a large number of indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi APs, to give MSPs all the options they need, from Ubiquiti to MikroTik to Edgecore. Users can also expand Wi-Fi capabilities with applications and features from our marketplace, and this adds a number of ways for MSPs to create the Wi-Fi services that are best for them. In the future, we expect to offer even more features and services on the marketplace – like AI-based troubleshooting and optimization, Wi-Fi sensing, and tools aimed at supporting Wi-Fi planning and design” said Tanaza CEO, Sebastiano Bertani.
