D-Link Announces New Cloud Managed Solutions with Expanded Wireless Features, Broadband Aggregation and Client Security for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses
Posted: Tue May 10, 2011 01:22:37 PM

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 10, 2011 - D-Link, the cost-effective, standards-based unified networking solutions provider for small business and medium enterprise IT environments, today announced new Cloud Managed products, providing unprecedented value and reliability to small and medium-sized businesses looking for a better way to manage their networks. The D-Link® DAP-3525 AirPremier® N Dual Band Exterior PoE Access Point powered by CloudCommand™, D-Link Insight™, and D-Link DIR-605 Fuzion™ Broadband Aggregation Router leverage Cloud-based automation for remote configuration and monitoring, resiliency, load balancing, and security management that can be outsourced or handled internally, allowing businesses with limited IT resources and budgets to improve the uptime and cost-effectiveness of their networks.

D-Link’s Cloud Managed solutions allow small and medium businesses – or the value-added reseller (VAR) or managed service provider (MSP) of their choice – to manage one or many networks remotely via a Cloud portal. Using the Cloud portal, businesses can take advantage of Cloud efficiencies in network deployments including higher performance and enterprise-class reliability.

“Many of the advanced features and benefits delivered through our Cloud Managed solutions are otherwise out of reach for small and medium-sized businesses,” said Joe Melfi, director of technical marketing and product manager for Cloud Solutions, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Their limited IT resources may be unable to handle the complex deployments and management required by traditional enterprise products. Our Cloud Managed solutions are one example of how D-Link’s superior economic model helps businesses with limited IT resources and budget achieve the greater productivity provided by networks with enterprise-class resilience, performance, and security.”

Following are additional features and benefits of the D-Link® Cloud solutions:
