Version 6.1.1 was released on Jan, 2023. This version introduces QoS support, 2FA, Troubleshooting enhancements and more.

There are three options for hosting flexiManage, each relevant for companies with a different set of requirements. All of these options come with support services and include multi-tenancy.

  • SaaS model in a shared environment - flexiManage is hosted by flexiWAN and includes the flexiWAN logo. This option is great for enterprise deployments and small to medium service provider deployments(Find this option in our pricing under Enterprise SaaS)

  • Dedicated environment - an isolated installation of flexiManage hosted by flexiWAN. In this case you can add your logo to the UI. This is the most popular option for MSPs, Service Providers and SIs

  • Self-hosting - self-hosting of flexiManage is typically best for very large telcos
