- Simply add a number of wireless Access Points. Access points do not have to be wired to the main gateway. Just plug in the powercord and keep them within wireless reach of the main gateway or another wireless access point. Building a 'mesh' network, just like a cellular network for mobile telephony.
Our gateways provide wireless IEEE 802.11b/g/n etc. (11Mbps, 54Mbps, 700Mbps) and wired controlled Internet access. We are using Linksys and other wireless routers including appliances and PC based servers with modified software (DD-WRT, OpenWRT, RouterOS ...) in connection with our centralized US based servers. In addition to our online Control Panel servers, we operate redundant dedicated servers for the authentication, authorization and accounting (AAA) process.
In case you already have an existing wireless network, but do not have sufficient access control or too complicated set up based on MAC addresses, you can simply use our Internet Access Gateway (Internet Access Control Appliance) to start getting in control again.
