Public Internet Access Done the Right Way
Providing Internet access in public areas is not the same as providing Internet access in homes or offices. Public Internet users come and go in masses, which makes access management and preventing bandwidth abuse especially challenging. The anonymity of public users makes it especially challenging to retain user data for legal purposes. Without the right Internet access solution, there is no way for public areas or venues like hotels to provide high-quality but controlled Internet access, let alone generate revenue from Internet services.
The ZyXEL UAG5100 is a high-performance access gateway designed to manage guest access and generate revenue in public Internet access networks. Supporting up to 800 concurrent logins, the UAG5100 is perfect for medium-sized venues like hotels, convention centers or public libraries. It facilitates compliance with data retention laws, and ensures high-quality, always online Internet access with dual-WAN and per account bandwidth management capabilities. It also reduces hardware expenditure for BYOD deployments with a WLAN controller built-in.
Deploy with confidence
The ZyXEL UAG5100 has the capacity to provide public Internet access to hundreds of users in medium-sized venues like hotels, libraries and convention centers. It supports 500 concurrent logins by default, and up to 800 via license upgrade. With dual-WAN support and per account bandwidth management, the UAG5100 maximizes Internet uptime and optimizes access quality to keep customers and visitors satisfied.
The ZyXEL UAG5100 is designed with advanced billing, user authentication, and access control features that help organizations like hotels manage guest accounts, block unauthorized access, and generate revenue with Internet services. It facilitates monetization of networking investments by offering Internet access as a paid service, or a free service with limitations and premium when a purchase is made.
Reduce CAPEX and OPEX
The ZyXEL UAG5100 delivers Internet services with reduced capital and operational expenditures. Without additional hardware investments, the UAG5100 can scale up to 800 concurrent logins, and manage up to 32 APs with the integrated WLAN controller. The WLAN controller increases administrative efficiency with a centralized interface for AP management. The UAG5100 also offers ten (10) IPSec VPN tunnels that make it easy for MSPs to manage the gateway remotely.
Comply with regulations
No longer do organizations that provide public Internet access need to worry about fines nes that come with not being able to comply with data retention laws, like the EU Data Retention Directive (2006/24/EC). The ZyXEL UAG5100 has data retention functions that automatically retain Internet usage records for government auditing when required.
