Hotspot solution 3 - High Speed Internet access solutions for larger premises

If you are a hotel looking to provide your visitors with wired and wireless high speed internet access our "Internet Service Gateway" or ISG system is ideal for any size deployment. It supports a number of different Property Management Systems in the management interface including Marriott, Micro’s Fedelio and Spectrum MKII systems, in addition it is possible to configure other types of PMS's manually. The ISG can be managed via the easy-to-use, platform-independent web-based management system or SNMP.

The ISG supports both RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) and proprietary implementation to authenticate, authorize and record the Internet usage of customers. The RADIUS support gives service providers an easy way to manage and maintain a large group of subscribers over the Internet, while the built-in authentication server allows an administrator to control and authenticate a subscriber’s access rights based on a login name and password.

Internet usage can be easily charged by pre-defined billing plans (by either minute, hour, day or other options). With the PMS interface, the ISG can easily provide information on the Internet usage of different customers to the existing property management system in a hotel application.

The ISG offers homepage redirection as well as multiple URL-link redirections for advertising options for service providers, hotels or property owners. The internet gateway allows hotel managers to create a ”walled garden” where unauthenticated users can be granted free access to selected links.

People on the move want to stay in touch. Look around you iPods, iPhones, iPads, Andriods, and many more devices! Businessmen on the road or students on their travels both want access
to their email and the internet through their PDA devices and they look for Wi-Fi to get that access. . A wireless hotspot is an excellent way to allow your guests to access the internet over a shared broadband connection. It will attract visitors to your premises and encourage them to stay longer and
spend more money with you. And best of all, it will generate a revenue stream which will typically pay for the equipment and running costs and generate a healthy profit within months of installation.

Our experienced technicians begin the process by performing a site survey to determine your current Wi-Fi situation. The result of the site survey is a tailored proposal that fits the requirements of YOUR business.

We always listen to you and never try to sell you equipment you really don't need. Lodgeport is in business for small business and as such we know that you have budgets to live within.
