HSG327

The 4ipnet HSG327 is the most economical and feature-rich Wireless Hotspot Gateway.

An access point with built-in controller functionality, the HSG327 is ideal for small-sized organizations and establishments that wish to have a high performance enterprise-grade WLAN without the associated costs and complexity. The HSG327 features two 2x2 MIMO radios that can each support up to 300 Mbps data rate in the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, providing wire-like performance. Along with integrated user authentication, role-based policy assignment, and real-time user monitoring, businesses of all scales can now own a manageable and secure wireless network.

For example, cafés and restaurants can use the HSG327 to quickly generate accounts for guests and patrons. Once a billing plan is configured in the HSG327, paid Wi-Fi services based on traffic volume or time can be enabled. Alternatively, limited free access can be granted by simply entering an e-mail address. With either method, owners can prevent “Wi-Fi squatters” from staying for hours without ordering or buying items on the menu, minimizing lost revenue.

Deployment-wise, the HSG327 integrates the patented 4ipWES (Wireless Easy Setup) technology to perform button-enabled wireless link establishment. By pressing the WES button located on the device, an AES-encrypted wireless link can instantly be formed. For those without an extensive networking or IT background, the HSG327 provides simplified and easy wireless coverage extension.

With the HSG327, the complexity of WLAN deployments can be considerably reduced. Branch offices, cafés, or retail shops can enjoy the benefits brought by managed Wi-Fi at an affordable pricing range. More importantly, security, reliability, and performance of the network are all optimized. Therefore, the HSG327 is the ideal choice in terms of an all-in-one Wi-Fi and user access control appliance.
