Mako Networks Rolls Out Secure, Reliable, Redundant Network for Icon Parking Locations in NYC

NYC parking leader Icon Parking selected Mako Networks to upgrade and modernize their distributed network design and equipment.

ELGIN, IL, October 19, 2020 – Mako Networks has completed deployment of their secure Mako System networking solution to more than two hundred Icon Parking locations, primarily in the New York metropolitan area, where parking is a hot commodity when traffic volume is high. Under these conditions, it is crucial that each parking garage is secure and available at all times.

Prior to selecting the Mako System, some of the major problems faced by Icon Parking locations included inconsistent security implementation, unreliable network availability, and insufficient redundancy. The Mako System provides solutions to these common problems with the Mako Central Management System (CMS) and high-performance Mako appliances configured with LTE backup.

The Mako CMS is a cloud-based platform for configuration, reporting, and diagnostic tools that allows for uniform configuration templating across the enterprise, including security configurations. The ability to preconfigure customer premise equipment makes deployment operationally painless, as well. Individual parking garages were cutover in minutes, and the entire Icon Parking project was completed in a matter of weeks.

“With the Mako System in place, Icon Parking has found that elusive solution that delivers visibility and control over all locations from a ‘single pane of glass,’” said Jeffrey Rader, Director of Parking Technology for Icon Parking. “The Mako CMS makes that a reality. We can distribute an urgent firewall change to every location with just a few clicks using the Enterprise Template functionality.”

“The Mako System is packed with advanced features and is evolving all the time. We are always excited when our existing customers find new ways to use the products to simplify and streamline their networks and security programs,” said Simon Gamble, President of Mako Networks. “Once you’re in, you’re well-positioned for years to come.”
