Black Is The New Orange

If the U.S. Navy had its way, the Bridge might have been painted black and yellow stripes to assure even greater visibility for passing ships.

Out with the Old Look, In with Mojo Wireless! Let’s face it … change is hard. It really is. This is especially true when you see the world through orange colored glasses. It boxes you in.

So imagine how difficult it was for us to take one of the most identifiable traits of the AirTight Networks brand, the color orange, and eliminate it almost completely from our newly redesigned company blog. Considering that AirTight Orange runs through the veins of investors, board members, partners, distributors and company employees it seems like a crazy, if not foolhardy idea.

But at AirTight, we’ve never been the types to shy away from a challenge, especially when it’s the right thing to do. Now if you think this seems obvious, all bets are off where AirTight Orange is concerned! The mere thought of even questioning the AirTight Orange in our branding leads to endless and fiery debates. One thing is certain though–everybody thinks they’re a marketing expert!   Read more

…And the Meshin’ is Easy

Mesh

As someone who has walked more than a few miles in a network administrator’s shoes, I’m all too familiar with the challenges of configuring and troubleshooting mesh environments. In my last position, as an administrator responsible for 300+ mesh nodes, I know the stress and frustration of dealing with dropped connections along with the other problems associated with mesh environments.

Our approach here at AirTight has always focused on making IT managers’ lives easier, and our Wi-Fi mesh implementation follows in the same footsteps.

As you may have already noticed, a new feature is now available in the AirTight Networks cloud console under configuring the SSID for your templates.

Since its release to the Wi-Fi product line, this enhancement has received lots of positive feedback regarding its innovative visual capabilities of managing mesh links, as well as the new options that offer both indoor and outdoor flexibility.   Read more
