In our last post, "How to Deliver Home-like Wi-Fi with Enterprise Level Network Control," we introduced readers to the basics of our Personal Pass Key experience and the mechanics behind it. In this post, we will dive into what makes the Personal Pass Key experience so revolutionary, especially for the multifamily industry.
First things first, there are many technical terms and acronyms out there that we’d like to help clarify. Here at Eleven, the solution that enables the revolutionary Wi-Fi experience we’ll be talking about in this blog series is called Personal Pass Key (PPK). Ruckus calls their solution Dynamic Pre-Shared Key (DPSK), Aruba has their Multi Pre-Shared Key (MPSK) solution, Cisco Meraki refers to it as Identity Pre-Shared Key (IPSK), and there are others.
On a stormy mid-November morning in Orlando, the Eleven team arrived at the NMHC OPTECH Conference & Exposition in order to attend keynotes, learn at breakout sessions, and network with the top minds of the MDU/multifamily industry. As Eleven has been building a new solution for tenant Wi-Fi, industry events, like OPTECH, are a great place to learn more about the industry. Throughout the course of the three-day conference, our team soaked in as much information they could. Below we get a glimpse into the valuable insight that they gleaned and how the new ElevenOS MDU solution will be a catalytic force for network service providers in this industry.
