ANTlabs NEW IG 3100 is now available

IG 3100: A full-featured gateway that lets you start small

Guests these days expect Internet access the moment they check in your hotel. A study [1] has shown that 95% of business travelers care if there is WiFi connection in the hotel or not, and 51% of mobile employees prefer to book hotels with WiFi. Whether you are the owner of a boutique hotel or a 150-room 3 star hotel, it's beneficial to both your hotel and your guests to have a reliable Internet connection. The way to have that is to get an Internet gateway that lets you efficiently manage your guest network.
How much does it cost to get a good, reliable gateway?
Previously, you will face the dilemma: get a cheap Internet gateway or a costly enterprise-grade gateway? You can get a cheap Internet gateway but chances are, it can barely meet the needs of your growing business and you will have to purchase another hardware later on as your user base grows. On the other hand, a high-end enterprise-grade Internet gateway that has all the features that you need costs way too much for your 150-room property at present.
The good news is, ANTlabs found a way to get you the enterprise-grade features in a box that costs less than a thousand-- the new IG 3100. It is now available for only USD 999*!
Small Box, Big Features
Just like ANTlabs' other powerful line of gateways, IG 3100 gives you the flexibility to run your network the way you want it. IG 3100 has enterprise-grade features [2] and it lets you choose the optional modules you need and get them when you need them.
Available Modules:
  •          2-Tier QoS New!
  •          Payment
  •          Volume Control
  •          Multi-WAN
  •          Account Printer Support (High Capacity Support: 10)
  •          Lawful Intercept - Syslog
  •          RADIUS
  •          Management Port
The New 2-Tier QoS
IG 3100 now includes 2-tier QoS support: Premium Tier and Complimentary Tier., giving you even more options to maximize your available bandwidth while up-selling connectivity options.
New IG 3100 design supports "Deploy and Forget"
The new design of the IG 3100 makes it much more robust to "deploy once and forget forever". Its fan-less and dust-free chassis design minimizes the chance of component failures. With its screw-in power connector, the chance of accidentally disconnecting the power cable is also a thing of the past.
Free 1-Year Premium Bundle Support
IG 3100 comes with a one year Premium Bundle support. This means that you shall get software and hardware support for your first year. You have the option to purchase support plans [3] for the subsequent years. This support bundle gives you unlimited access to upgrades and patches, and 24/7 tech support.
IG 3100 and Your Growing Business
As your business grows and caters to more users, the IG 3100 adapts so expanding does not need costly hardware replacements for you. From a 100-default user license, you can raise that up to 400. And as the way users consume data evolves, ANTlabs will continually roll out new features to cater to these growing demands. Get the peace of mind in knowing that your IG 3100 will get access to these features.

Are You Ready for the BYOD Epidemic?


What is it? The massive growth of video and mobile data devices appears to have changed everything. Bring your own device (BYOD) (also referred to as Bring your own technology (BYOT), Bring your own phone (BYOP), and Bring your own PC (BYOPC)) is a term that is frequently used to describe the policy of permitting employees to bring personally owned mobile devices (laptops, tablets, and smart phones) to their place of work and use those devices to access privileged company information and applications. The term is also used to describe the same practice applied to students using personally owned devices in education settings. With "road warriors" making up a large percentage of hotel guests, these devices are brought onto the hotel network as well.

Who does it affect? The BYOD movement affects all network users, including: hotel guests, hotel staff, conference center guests, office workers, students, etc.

When is it happening? The BYOD movement is happening as you read this web page. It will only continue to expand in size and density.

Where is it happening? The BYOD movement started off in the office/corporate segment but has quickly spread to most networks, including: hotel, education, and conference center networks.

Why do I care? Everyone that uses a network, manages a network or makes purchase for network equipment should understand the ramifications of BYOD. The BYOD epidemic is extremely taxing on an entire network and specifically on individual network components. If a network isn't built to handle the volume of devices then all users will have a poor experience.

How can I prepare for BYOD? Continue reading...
