Their needs

Space2B at The Maltings met with Amitech IT Director, Nick Williams, to discuss their options. He recommended Sophos wireless access points as the most suitable solution due to features like time access, guest hotspots, outdoor usage, breakout area access, as well as for analytic data requests.

Our solution

There are now 10 Sophos wireless access points in use throughout Space2B at The Maltings covering a total of 25,000 square feet. Using Sophos Central, the Amitech IT team can quickly log in and see the status of the wireless points at Space2B, including the wireless load. They are also able to categorize the content users are viewing and manage capacity planning with the analytics data that is gathered.

Summary

Sophos wireless access points provide Space2B at The Maltings with stable and secure reliable wireless access provisions, regardless of how many people are accessing the network or where they are in the hub. Access to the analytics data was a key benefit to the management team at Space2B, as they are able to see how and where the Wi-Fi is being used, enabling them to make future decisions based on factual data.

Nick has spoken highly of his decision to recommend Sophos wireless access points following this experience and ongoing support received from Sophos, as well as the positive results and outcomes for his client, Space2B.

“ The feedback from our users regarding the Sophos wireless has been excellent – they are very impressed. We would definitely use Sophos solutions again in the future for all our technical requirements.”
