What is Managed Wi-Fi?

Wi-Fi is said to be “managed” when it is outsourced to external experts who handle the day-to-day management, monitoring, maintenance and support of the Wi-Fi system and/or infrastructure.

It will include devices such as wireless controllers, wireless access points (or WAPs), switches and cabling. It may also have a specific access portal called a Captive Portal where users go through an authentication process before they are granted access to the service.
