Nomadix Unveils the New AG 5800 Internet Access Gateway

By SIP Trunking Report Contributor

Nomadix, a distributor of public access gateways, stated that its new AG 5800 is a high-performance Internet access gateway that extends a wired or Wi-Fi network to create a public internet access network.

The AG 5800 is reportedly loaded with new advanced features that can help users overcome fluctuating bandwidth demands. The gateway is targeted at medium to large facilities, such as hotels, airports, enterprises, convention centers and large venues with easy device user count scalability.  

NetApp explained that the AG5800 features the flexibility to support 250 devices and easily scales to 4,000 simultaneous device connections. When working in tandem with the Nomadix Software Engine, the gateway can deliver a fast, reliable and dedicated network appliance, keeping Internet traffic flowing.

Based on the VxWorks real-time multi-tasking operating system, the AG 5800 is architected to use less processing power and run faster, and features a variety of bandwidth management tools that ensure optimal connection quality and fair access to bandwidth.

AG 5800 also 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.

“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 of 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.”

From the smallest single cell HotSpot to a large multi-cell location supporting thousands of users, Nomadix claims it has the right access gateway to fit one’s deployment needs. Its access gateways are dedicated network appliances that provide superior scalability and reliability over competitive solutions that are server-based or run on operating systems susceptible to viruses.
