Nomadix launches New Internet Gateway Enhancements for Public Access Networks

By CIOReview | Tuesday, February 23, 2016

AGOURA HILLS, CA: In a major announcement made, Nomadix, Inc., creator of public Internet gateways, has launched Nomadix Service Engine (NSE) version 8.6 for its AG 2400, AG 5600, AG 5800 and AG 5900 gateways. For the hospitality market and other industries that support a continuous stream of visitors wanting to access the Internet, Nomadix gateways extend a wired or Wi-Fi network to create a public Internet network.

Today's guest network operators face an inevitable demand for bandwidth. This demand necessitates the need for a reliable, scalable solution to manage visitor network bandwidth resources. “In providing visitor Internet connectivity, it's all about making sure guest’s needs are met and simultaneously providing a fast, seamless Internet experience plays a big part in that," said Nomadix Chief Commercial and Operating Officer Fred Reeder.

With the release of version 8.6, the long-time gateway provider once again reinforces its commitment, investing in new capabilities that properties demand. Bandwidth Management - the Quality of Service (QoS) feature has been expanded to include support for Layer 3 Differentiated Services Code Point (DSCP) marking along with existing Layer 2 802.1p support. This provides hotels and other entities with increased visibility of the end-user's online behavior, thus improving the ability to manage bandwidth.

The NSE platform of Nomadix now supports automatic updates for daylight savings time and official Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) time zones. This change is especially helpful in supporting time-sensitive functions, such as credit card authentication. "Our job is to listen to our customers and nimbly adapt our technology based on the feedback we receive -- to give operators the tools they need to create that positive experience. The latest version of our software does just that," Adds Reeder

With the release of latest version, the AG 2400 gateway will enhance its support for smaller properties, such as hotels with up to 150 rooms, and the deployment of wired or wireless networks with up to 500 simultaneous mobile devices. The AG 5600, AG 5800 and AG 5900 gateways will serve larger venues with up to 2,000, 4,000 and 8,000 simultaneous devices, respectively.
