BakPak Cloud Management System – What If?

What if you could manage and configure an entire client network from anywhere in the world?

Now you can with the new BakPak Cloud Management System! BakPak makes the process of taking care of client networks simple.

Power Control

BakPak gives dealers a totally new way to look at their clients’ networks. You can quickly view the network health of every network managed, all devices on that network, how they connect, and even look at their uptime, IP address, MAC address, and other important information – making it the most useful diagnostic tool you have.

But that’s not the most exciting thing. With BakPak, you can directly access the configuration menu of any device connected to a client’s network – even non-Pakedge devices. This allows you to configure and troubleshoot any device on a network without being on-site.

What if you could receive alerts directly to your phone immediately when problems arise on client networks?

The BakPak Cloud Management System actively monitors client networks so you don’t have to. Whenever problems happen – let’s say a touch panel freezes, an access point goes down, or even an entire internet connection drops out – BakPak sends an alert directly to your phone in real time.

Alerts can be configured for any device on the network, and are sent through e-mail, SMS, or direct from the application.


Allowing you to log directly into the device powering our problem access point, reboot it, and watch as the network’s problem is solved before the client even notices.

What if you could turn this into a managed service, charging customers a monthly subscription for network monitoring and management?

BakPak gives you the tools you need to do more than reduce your own workload and eliminate on-site visits. With BakPak, you’re providing clients the peace of mind of a fully-monitored network – a service that’s valuable to them, and valuable to you.

“Good Enough” Isn’t Good Enough – Why Networking Matters.

Consumer grade technology is designed to meet a certain price point. For $50 dollars, you can purchase an all-in-one networking product with a built-in access point, switch, and router. But meeting a certain price point has its limitations—network security and speed are severely compromised in order to make way for cheaper alternatives. Businesses and modern homes need a superior network with better security, priority streaming, and greater bandwidth to handle today’s appliances. That’s where enterprise-grade technology steps in.

Enterprise-grade products offer:

  1. Better Streaming – multimedia networks can coexist with each other, thanks to configurable priority streaming. Voice services are crystal clear and not subject to data drops and delays.


  1. Security – this includes encryption for all administrative traffic (HTTPS, SFTP, SSH) and IP access controls. Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and firewalls are built-in to protect the network against oncoming threats.


  1. High Bandwidth – enterprise-grade products can supply enough bandwidth to support simultaneous streams of audio/video without interruption.


  1. Scalability – rather than scrapping an entire system when something new comes out, integrators can scale their enterprise-grade equipment up to accommodate different situations.


  1. Reliability – while consumer grade routers overheat, get overloaded with too many connections, or simply stop working after 8 month, enterprise-grade products are built to last for years. Enterprise-grade products also come with lengthy warranty periods to ensure the network runs smoothly.


  1. Coverage – Businesses and large homes require coverage for a tremendous amount of space and are comprised of diverse building materials such as concrete, stone, or steel. Enterprise-grade products ensure full coverage of wireless property, even in the face of substantial wireless interference.

With internet now considered the 4th utility in homes (behind gas, water, and electricity), a reliable network is more important than ever before. That is why the Pakedge Connect+ Platform gives integrators a fully-integrated network that meets the necessities of enterprise-grade networking.

The Pakedge Connect+ Platform is a carefully-integrated system of switches, routers, wireless, power management and software technologies, designed specifically to work with each other to deliver seamless, scalable, and reliable multimedia networking performance. This platform, when unified with the BakPak Cloud Management System, offers cloud-enabled services such as monitoring and management of all connected devices anywhere, any time, and from any device.
