Nomadix Alloc8-X Series Public Access Gateways Enable Enhanced Visitor Network Performance Tuning

By - Source: Nomadix

Nomadix announced the new Alloc8 – X Series public access gateways that provide administrators with detailed insights into bandwidth consumption and tools for optimizing network usage patterns across hotel, retail and educational networks. Using the company’s network traffic monitoring and analytics, with the company’s Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology, the Alloc8- X Series provides bandwidth consumption statistics broken down by user, application, device and location. The Alloc8 – X Series allows managers to set network resource allocation policies based on these criteria, while enabling faster problem diagnosis and resolution.

“The ability to control the applications that use your network is vital to the guest experience,” said Fred Reeder, Nomadix chief commercial and operating officer. “Our new Alloc8 – X Series enables IT personnel to identify problem users and apply granular policies to control who, and what, can use valuable bandwidth on your network. This not only improves the guest experience but also saves operators money in the long run.”

Policies implemented using Alloc8 – X Series can set limits or prevent bandwidth allocation, and can be set to prioritize network bandwidth consumption based on individual users, groups, applications or websites. The Alloc8 – X Series comes with a suite of analytical tools that feature analytics, purpose-built reports and a recommendation engine. These tools can help managers anticipate problems before they occur and have the ability to make suggestions for policy changes aimed at improving network performance. Having a clear picture of network usage on visitor networks, along with tools that allow network use optimization, can help organizations avoid the cost of unnecessary bandwidth expenditures.

The Alloc8 – X Series features 4 models. The 1U rack X4000 can support from 200 Mbps to 1 Gbps of data throughput for small to medium installations, and the 1U rack X6000 supports 1 Gbps to 2.5 Gbps for hotels and convention centers. The 2U rack X8000 supports up to 5 Gbps, and the 2U rack X10000 supports up to 10 Gbps of data throughput.

The Alloc8 – X Series is available immediately.
