Since MSP is responsible for all hardware and software updates, as well as security patches, upgrades, problem-solving tasks and support for users through a helpdesk, businesses do not have the additional cost of hiring dedicated IT staff to manage as well as maintain wireless networks and give support to guests and other WiFi users.

FREMONT, CA: There are many advantages to outsourcing the management of your WiFi network to experts, just as there are many benefits to outsourcing services for data storage, software tools, security services, and other services. Let's explore those benefits in more detail.

Reduced Expenditure on Capital

Since Wi-Fi-related hardware and software are hosted by MSPs, businesses no longer have to invest upfront capital when establishing their own networks. Instead, companies simply pay a monthly or annual subscription fee for a pay-per-use model.

Reduced Operating Expenditure

Since MSP is responsible for all hardware and software updates, as well as security patches, upgrades, problem-solving tasks and support for users through a helpdesk, businesses do not have the additional cost of hiring dedicated IT staff to manage as well as maintain wireless networks and give support to guests and other WiFi users.

Improved Productivity

With the reduction of network management responsibilities, IT staff are available and can be rerouted to other more strategic initiatives for their business, and employee productivity may be less affected by network downtime. Any need to purchase, instal and configure a network infrastructure is therefore eliminated, saving IT staff considerable billable hours.

Efficiency Gains

As an additional perk, outsourcing to a specialist with expertise in managing WiFi systems across a wide range of different businesses means that your organisation benefits from their expertise and efficiency. This is particularly valuable when problems arise that require WiFi technology expertise and the involvement of hardware manufacturers, ISPs, telecommunications carriers and all other types of partners in the wider WiFi ecosystem. In such cases, the dedicated WiFi MSP will always be much more efficient thanks to its in-depth knowledge of WiFi technology and its ecosystem.
