what is a smart network?

A smart network is a WiFi and connectivity networking solution with analytics layered over the top. Adding more value than just basic internet access. The information gathered from the infrastructure can be utilised to monitor network activity, app usage, or even monitor your locations and assets through smart sensors or cameras.

With our smart network solution, we have created a custom bundle that incorporates security, performance and connectivity between your applications and your office, as well as analytics gathered by the hardware.

The analytics are accessed via a centralised dashboard. Depending on your business needs, we can provide you with regular reports on your network and application usage or give you direct access.

The dashboard can interpret the results captured from the network hardware in several structured reports. Your business has full control over the analytics collected by the network and can use this to make data-driven decisions. Smart networks are an innovative way to monitor network performance and derive meaningful business insights that can lead to growth.

Every person in and around the smart network is part of a series of numbers displayed in the analytics dashboard. The hardware captures this data.

The smart analytics records real-time heatmaps of your site’s floor plans. From the heatmaps, you can see which places are frequented most often. This is particularly useful in retail situations, providing valuable insight into which places consumers are most attracted to. The dashboard can combine heatmap analytics with other insights such as dwell-time to show exactly what is keeping customers in your store.

The WiFi connectivity doesn’t just measure the basics. The dashboard displays how long a device is connected, the length of the average visit, and how many people connect to the network. The smart network measures engagement statistics, too, such as loyalty:

  • How frequently devices connect
  • The busiest days of the week
  • The busiest hours of the day
  • The number of people who pass by the network but never connect.

The websites and apps most visited by users are collected, and you can utilise those details to implement marketing initiatives. All the anonymised data can be exported and used for various purposes to benefit strategic business decisions.
