Nomadix has released its Wireless Connect Gateway, a Wi-Fi hotspot and internet access gateway that provides secure access for wireless users. The hotspot is designed for smaller establishments such as retail chains, restaurants, conference rooms, waiting rooms, or any location where visitors want to connect to the local area network.
A plug-and-play solution, the internet access gateway supplies businesses with a name and password page for their establishment. In the case of applications that do not require Wi-Fi, such as network connectivity for a conference room, the gateway can serve up to 200 users.
Features include visitor registration, marketing web pages such as walled gardens, and a portal page. In addition, the "gateway in a box" can be used as a standalone four LAN port authentication gateway to monitor and control Internet access for guests and visitors.
In addition, a three-button thermal printer option is available. The printer can be programmed for a predetermined number of minutes, hours or days, at which time the VP 20 will generate a voucher with access code, password and length of time requested. Access can either be programmed for use all at once or to allow patrons to use the balance of the prepaid allotment over a set period. Once the time limit has been reached, the access code is terminated.
