The 4ipnet HSG326 is a wireless hotspot with built-in user access control, ideal for SMBs that wish to provide simple and manageable guest Wi-Fi.

The 4ipnet HSG326 is an all-in-one wireless hotspot gateway solution that caters primarily to SMBs such as coffee shops or restaurants. As an access point with built-in gateway functionality, the HSG326 is ideal for businesses that wish to have an enterprise-grade Wi-Fi network for their customers, without the associated deployment costs and complexities. Featuring concurrent dual-band connectivity, 2x2 MIMO with a total data rate of 1.2 Gbps, and many wireless optimization features, the HSG326 is able to provide a wire-like performance. Additionally, the HSG326 offers a comprehensive set of user authentication, policy enforcement, and network traffic monitoring functionality, allowing businesses to gain complete visibility and control over their Wi-Fi.

The integrated guest Wi-Fi and billing platform in the HSG326 supports a wide-array of methods for guests to authenticate and obtain Wi-Fi access. Guests can register by e-mail, SMS, or popular social media platforms such as Facebook, and also have the option to pay for premium access with increased bandwidth directly via their own PayPal accounts. Alternatively, businesses can choose to deploy 4ipnet’s WTG ticket printer to easily create user accounts on-demand at the front desk.

With the HSG326, small business owners can move beyond just providing free Wi-Fi to their customers. Customizable captive portals and social media login are now valuable sources for obtaining direct customer information, which in turn allows for better understanding of customers and more effective marketing campaigns. Manageable Wi-Fi is increasingly becoming a necessity for SMBs that wish to offer a secure and reliable Wi-Fi environment, and the HSG326 is the ideal product to meet these needs.
