Features

Born in the Cloud

MSP-Centric WiFi begins in the cloud. Datto WiFi is completely cloud managed, so there is nothing to install on-site and the MSP doesn’t have to spin up its own cloud just to make it work.

Datto Partner Portal

A one-stop-shop of networking management and business tools built for MSPs to operate more efficiently and grow their business

Networking Status

From a single multi-tenant view, Networking Status enables at-a-glance monitoring of all Datto Networking deployments with simple visual cues of a device's connection status. Now, the MSP can proactively monitor its customers’ connections and quickly take action when needed.

Drill-Down Configuration Management

With toggle driven, drill-down configuration options in the Networking Management interface, MSPs can quickly and easily deploy complete networks in minutes.

MSP Aligned

Being MSP Aligned means we focus all of our efforts on delivering simple, easy to install, manage and support solutions for the MSP to serve its small to medium sized customers.

Integration with MSP Tools

Native integrations with RMM and PSA, the tools an MSP uses to run its day-to-day business.

No PHD Required

Technicians who install, configure, and manage Datto Networking deployments do not have to get expensive certifications or attend week-long training courses. It's simple networking, configured and managed in the cloud.

Multi-tenant Networking Status

Accessed from the Datto Partner Portal, Networking Status enables you to monitor all networks and connected devices in a multi-tenant view.

Simple Guest Networking

With auto creation of a guest VLAN, splash page editor, integrated vouchers, and support for Facebook WiFi, guest network deployment has never been easier.

Monthly Service Pricing

Datto Networking is priced in the same way an MSP sells its service: monthly. There are no monthly charges for devices sitting in inventory. Monthly billing doesn't start until the device is deployed. Simple, MSP driven pricing.

Auto Optimized

WiFi works best when it includes auto-optimizations to continuously improve broadcast and WiFi performance.

Automatic Self-Healing Mesh

As soon as Datto Networking’s access points are plugged in, they connect to the cloud and connect to each other...wirelessly. The mesh connection automatically forms, enabling the access points to continue to broadcast wirelessly, even if the hardwired connection is lost.

Auto-Channel Scanning

Ensuring users can always connect to a strong signal with minimal interference will improve overall WiFi performance. Datto Networking access points scan all channels once a day to determine the channel with the least amount of interference. Then the AP will automatically select a new channel if it determines there is one with a better broadcast signal.

Auto-Firmware Management

Auto-Firmware Management enables the MSP to schedule when firmware updates will be delivered from the cloud to the networking device, simplifying fleet management.

“Just-Plug-It-In” Install

For an MSP, the simpler a product is to install, the better. Datto Networking WiFi was built to be simple, configure in the cloud and just plug the APs in.

Cloud Managed

Datto APs get their configuration from the cloud. Set up the configuration once, then plug in the AP. Later, any changes you want to make to the config, it’s back to the cloud.

Network Cloning

Once a network configuration is set, deploying those same settings to a new network is as simple as clicking “Clone.” That action copies all of the configuration settings and devices to a new network, saving the MSP time and money. Set it once, clone it and deploy.

Zero-Touch Deployment

For an MSP, there are few things more aggravating than having to send an expensive resource onsite for a difficult and lengthy deployment. With Datto Networking, there is nothing to install on site. Datto Networking access points get their configurations from the cloud. Set everything up once in the cloud, then just plug the devices in. Zero-touch deployment. Money saving and just smart networking.

Smarter MSP Networking

Everything about Datto Networking was purpose-built for the MSP. From ordering devices to streamlined deployments, Datto Networking is the smart way for an MSP to do networking.

Just One SKU

Two models of APs, with just one SKU for each. But with each SKU, you get everything needed to install the AP, indoor or outdoor. On the ceiling or on the wall. Everything is in the box.

Self-Forming WIFI

Smart Datto Networking products know when they’ve been plugged in. They also know about the other access points on their same network. They even connect to the other APs through an encrypted wireless mesh connection. So if an AP ever loses its hardwired connection, it still works. APs self-form with each other and also in the cloud. And all you need to do is plug them in.
