Nomadix AG 5800 Access Gateway
High-Performance, Scalable Access Gateway

Nomadix AG 5800 Access Gateway

Sorry, this product is no longer available, and replaced by the new AG 5900 Series! Subscriptions and renewals are still available for the AG 5800 below.


The AG 5800 is a next generation, high-performance Internet access gateway that extends a wired or WiFi network to create a public Internet access network. Designed for medium- to large-sized venues, from hotels to airports to convention centers, the AG 5800 features the flexibility to support 250 devices and scale to 4,000 simultaneous devices. Unlike server-based solutions, the AG 5800 is a fast, reliable, dedicated network appliance designed to keep traffic flowing.

Next Generation Platform for Speed and Durability

The AG 5800 hardware platform is built upon Intel’s high-performance processors and sports built-in flash memory. The AG 5800 is designed for intensive usage while supporting a Gbit WAN port and four LAN ports. Top-speed is delivered regardless of user load. The durability of the AG 5800 is achieved due to its reliable and quality platform, ensuring optimum uptime. Based on the VxWorks real-time multi-tasking operating system, the AG 5800 is architected to use less processing power and run faster. Combined with the proven Nomadix Service Engine™ (NSE) Core Software, the AG 5800 is an ultra high-performance appliance with unparalleled reliability.

Bandwidth Management

The AG 5800 comes equipped with a range of bandwidth management tools, ensuring that the quality of the connection is optimum and that each user gets fair access to bandwidth. Bandwidth can be managed by group, subscriber or device, or a combination of all three, and includes data offloading. The AG 5800 is equipped to operate at near wire speed and also offers new NSE features with increased computational intensity.

Highly Scalable

From medium-sized businesses to large public settings, the AG 5800 is scalable from 250 up to 4,000 simultaneous devices. No change of hardware or software design is required to upgrade to the desired device count. The AG 5800 fits in any environment that uses a rack mount.

Advanced Security for Network Protection

The AG 5800 offers advanced security for network protection with ICMP packet blocking. Enhanced by utilizing Session Rate Limiting (SRL) to manage Denial of Service (DOS) attacks, the AG 5800 includes URL filtering, centralized RADIUS authentication, and iNAT technology that allows multiple VPN tunnels to provide users with a seamless connection at higher levels of security. Additionally, the AG 5800 provides the ability to centrally monitor responsible usage, and set policies to securely manage user access.

Gateway Software Modules

Nomadix offers a range of software modules for all of the Gateway models.

High availability failover module option

The High-Availability Failover Module pairs two Nomadix gateways, providing a backup to pick up users if one gateway is disconnected from the network. The settings (except IP addresses) between the two gateways synchronize automatically to enhance functionality.

Hospitality software module option

Nomadix offers a wide range of property management system (PMS) interfaces to allow for reliable, in-room guest billing for high-speed Internet access (HSIA) service. This module includes a two-way PMS interface for billing in Wi-Fi-enabled networks and uses “bill mirror” functionality, allowing records to be easily posted to multiple sources. The Nomadix Service Engine (NSE) also supports billing over a TCP/IP connection to select PMS interfaces.

Nomatic Load Balancing Module

With the Load Balancing Module from Nomadix, Internet traffic is balanced across multiple WAN/ISP connections to ensure that the traffic demands placed on HSIA are distributed based on the capability of each connection. This is of value when multiple links are used to optimize cost for Internet service, such as balancing traffic between one low-cost DSL WAN/ISP and one high-performance, high-capacity WAN/ISP. Hotels also have the option to enable tiered service reflecting the capacity of the WAN/ISP connection.

The Link Failover feature of the Load Balancing Module is designed to improve business continuity. In the event that one or more links fail, traffic is seamlessly rerouted to the remaining surviving links without missing a beat. When the failed links recover, new connections are routed toward the now-working links until a normal, balanced configuration is reached.

Easily configurable, integrated solution

Many load balancers on the market are offered as separate appliances, which can be difficult to set up. When two appliances are required, the Internet access gateway must be configured with the load balancer—a process that can lead to misalignment between the load balancer and the gateway. This, in turn, results in the load balancing features not functioning properly.

The Nomadix Load Balancing Module is an optional software module that can be easily enabled for Nomadix Service Engine (NSE) 8.2 software, making testing of additional ISP links possible in just a few minutes. By consolidating the Load Balancer within the gateway, you can rest assured that true load balancing is achieved by one appliance.

Cost-effective and reliable

With the Nomadix Load Balancing Module, the cost of the module is licensed as a one-time fee for that particular NSE. By eliminating the need for yet another appliance in the data path of the guest HSIA network, the Nomadix Load Balancing Module helps to improve overall system reliability.
