Speed. Simplicity. Security. Get all three.

  • Easy set up with the Instant On app

    Set up your network in a few clicks and manage it from your phone—then let Instant On do the work for you. Automatic updates will keep your network running at top speeds. Your data will always travel along the fastest path. And, there’s no need to buy additional equipment, like a router, ever. Want to capture guest information for your marketing efforts? That’s easy too with custom sign-on portals.

  • Manage your network from anywhere

    Control your network from the palm of your hand with the Instant On App on your phone. Monitor and manage up to 50 access points and switches. Keep tabs on who is connecting to which sites and apps. Prioritize important systems like your POS. Set limits to stop bandwidth hogs from slowing things down.

    What’s more, you can also control costs, save power, and enhance security by limiting Wi-Fi access to business hours with our PoE scheduling feature.

  • Get a strong signal inside and out

    Instant On Mesh Wi-Fi uses multiple access points that communicate with one another to blanket your indoor and outdoor spaces with a strong signal. Want to extend your network coverage or strengthen the signal in an area? Just add another access point.

  • Enjoy blazing-fast speeds with Wi-Fi 6

    If you’re setting up a new network, a Wi-Fi 6 network is your best option. Wi-Fi 6 delivers consistently fast speeds and strong signals when many devices are competing for bandwidth at the same time. It also allows for power conservation, so device batteries last longer.

  • Protect your business, employees, and customers

    Easily separate business and employee traffic from customer traffic. Set hours for network availability for employees and customers and block specific sites or app categories. And, do it all knowing your network is automatically protected by the latest security that defends against external threats like malware attacks or unauthorized users.

Usage

Do you and your employees regularly download or upload large files? How about your customers and business systems? Do you store most of your information on-site or in the cloud? Do you regularly have video calls? Understanding how your network is used informs the speed you need.

Set yourself up for success

See three different setup scenarios.

  • Light use: Clinic

    When data security is priority one, Instant On delivers. Set up a guest network and decide if there are apps or site categories you want to block. You can also create multiple networks within your business, separating office admin from POS and billing, for instance, to further secure sensitive information. Know you’re protected with all the security you need—no subscription, licensing fees, or additional equipment needed.

How many devices do you need to plug in?

You may need a network switch to incorporate devices without Wi-Fi capability into your wireless network, like an Ethernet security camera, printer, or payment processor. Plug a switch directly into the cable that brings internet service into your space for the fastest speeds without interference. Adding and managing a switch is simple with the Instant On app.

What’s the difference between an access point and a router?

Instant On access points replace a typical router. Just plug an Instant On access point into the cable that brings the internet into your business to enable your Wi-Fi network.
