What Nuclias Connect means for administrators.

Since Nuclias Connect’s software operates transparently on the network, an AP or switch can be deployed anywhere in a NAT environment. Moreover, administrators can provide and manage a variety of distributed deployments, including the option to configure settings and administrator accounts for each deployment.

The built-in Nuclias Connect software allows for multiple user authentications and also makes it possible to configure specific access controls for each SSID, giving admins the option of configuring separate internal networks for different subnets. This means that more advanced Value-Added Services, such as Captive Portal or Wi-Fi Hotspot, can be used to help manage wireless network traffic.

Comprehensive controls for optimising the network.

Network admins can grant localised management authority for local networks.
 x8 SSIDs per radio
And the option of using one SSID to create a guest network for visiting.
 AP discovery and provisioning
It allows users to find APs on the same Layer 2/3 network and import profiles which can then be applied as needed to groups or individual APs for greater efficiency.
 Schedules and automated tasks
Batch configuration, automated network management and reporting, and searchable and auditable Event and Change Logs.
 Diverse authentication options
Captive Portal, 802.1x and RADIUS Server, and support for POP3, LDAP, AD

Data stays within your premises and follows your security measures.

With more devices being used on networks than ever before, privacy has become an essential requirement. The Nuclias Connect Hub is designed for businesses where privacy and security are mission-critical. User data never leaves your possession. The Hub saves power and improves security with the wireless scheduler feature which switches off wireless connectivity when not needed.

Scale your network alongside your business.

The Nuclias Connect Hub gives you the financial and technical flexibility to scale up the network simply by adding more Hubs while retaining a robust and centralised management system. Device information is stored locally and the network can be monitored in real-time.

 Cost-effective scaling
Centralised configurations allow network expansion of up to 100 APs/switches per Hub which results in a lower total cost of ownership.
