Version 8.8 of Nomadix Service Engine Enables Hoteliers to Better Support BandwidthHungry, Internet-Based Applications and Provide a Superior Guest Experience
AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Jan. 17, 2017 – Today Nomadix Inc. announced NSE (Nomadix Service Engine) version 8.8 for its AG 2400, AG 5800 and AG 5900 access gateways, which service internet connections for guests in hotels or anywhere there is a visitor-based network. Version 8.8 brings increased throughput performance and support for the new AG 5900 with a two-port Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) 10G fiber module plug-in option.
With hospitality networks around the world becoming progressively overloaded by bandwidth-hungry, internet-based applications, there is a strong need for greater throughput as well as new methods of transmitting data at faster speeds. Greater throughput enables hotels to meet bandwidth demands and keep internet traffic flowing, while fiber networks continue to be a hot trend in hospitality. Using fiber not only offers distinct savings for the hotel over time, it also provides higher bandwidth capabilities, giving hotels a competitive advantage over other properties that do not use fiber-based visitor networks.
NSE version 8.8 addresses both the need for greater throughput and the growing trend of fiber-based visitor networks. With a “Fast Forwarding” software mode enabled, each one of Nomadix’s access gateways will see an increased throughput of 2x their previous speeds. When combined with the new AG 5900 chassis, which is configured with an SFP+ 10G fiber module, version 8.8 supports up to 3Gbps throughput performance.
“The benefits of fiber networks are becoming more and more attractive to hospitality and other guest network providers,” said Nomadix Chief Commercial and Operating Officer Fred Reeder. “Venues that utilize fiber architecture are future-proofing their visitor-based networks and will realize a lower total cost of ownership and a higher level of security. Our newest version of NSE taps into this trend and provides hotels and other venues with the technology they need to make sure their guests have a positive internet experience and increase their likelihood of returning to the property.”
In addition to higher throughput, noteworthy attributes of version 8.8 include:
Nomadix gateways are designed to meet the needs of properties small and large. The AG 2400 gateway serves smaller properties, such as hotels with up to 150 rooms, and supports the deployment of wired or wireless networks with up to 500 simultaneous mobile devices. The AG 5800 and AG 5900 gateways serve larger venues with up to 4,000 and 8,000 simultaneous devices, respectively.
