Nomadix, a source of intelligent network devices that simplify public Internet access, launched the AG 5800, a high-performance access gateway, to meet the growing demands for bandwidth specifically for medium and large venues such as hotels, airports, enterprises and convention centers.
"To address the growing demands for bandwidth, from the BYOD movement to road warriors with multiple mobile devices to the trend to off-load cellular networks, we realize that venues like large hotels are in need of more powerful solutions to service and manage that bandwidth demand," said Fred Reeder, chief commercial and operating officer at Nomadix.
"The AG 5800 is an ultra high-performance appliance that is designed to meet these challenges and provide users with a superior Internet experience," Reeder added.
Nomadix’s new AG5800 is designed to extend a wired or Wi-Fi network to create a public Internet access network. It supports anywhere from 250 up to 4,000 simultaneous devices without any required change of hardware or software design, and allows organizations to add more devices as needed.
Equipped with a range of bandwidth management tools, the AG 5800 also ensures that the quality of the connection is optimal and that each user gets fair access to bandwidth.
AG 5800 is based on the VxWorks real-time, multi-tasking operating system, and is architected to run faster using less processing power. Built upon Intel's (News - Alert) high-performance processors and communication technology, the AG 5800 sports built-in flash memory and contains the proven Nomadix Service Engine Core Software, making it a dedicated network appliance that keeps Internet traffic flowing.
Regardless of user load, the AG 5800 can operate at near wire speed and offers new NSE features with increased computational intensity. It supports a Gbit WAN port and four LAN ports, fitting in any environment that uses a rack mount.
The AG 5800 especially offers advanced security for network protection with ICMP packet blocking. Enhanced through Session Rate Limiting to manage Denial of Service attacks, the AG 5800 includes URL filtering, centralized radius authentication and iNAT technology that allows multiple VPN tunnels to provide users with a seamless connection at higher levels of security.
This gateway comes with the option to centrally monitor responsible usage and set policies to manage user access.
