Cape Sales Executive, Paul Kersse, and co-founder, Ross Douglas, receiving the the Best Wi-Fi Startup award on behalf of Cape.

"We're honored to be recognized by our peers for the innovation Cape is bringing in the Wi-Fi industry," says Ross Douglas, the Cape co-founder who received the award on behalf of the company.

Unlike other cumbersome, network-centric tools, Cape's cloud-based dashboard is a bold reinvention of the network performance dashboard, focused on usability. Cape's sensor tests Wi-Fi performance from the end-user's perspective, enabling it to identify and diagnose problems that would otherwise plague users and network operations teams. The cellular-enabled sensor allows organizations to deploy the product in minutes, saving thousands of dollars on Ethernet cable runs.

Wi-Fi has become business-critical infrastructure for almost every organization around the world. Cape is trusted by managed service providers, Fortune 100 companies, technology companies, global hospitality groups, professional arenas, schools and more, across 14 countries.
