The best advice - Informations for ICT consultants

Trusted network solutions for corporate customers and the public sector

Business and government today are increasingly becoming networked. However, one result of this is a greater susceptibility to virtual threats. Infrastructures need to function reliably and remain trustworthy. Wherever sensitive data is transmitted or critical applications have been digitalized, the effects of attacks or failures can be devastating.

Secure wasn't secure enough for us

Online everywhere via hotspot

You as a professional will know that the increasing number of mobile devices is creating an unparalleled demand for hotspot solutions. Our hotspot solution, the LANCOM Public Spot option, is available as a software option for many of our hardware components. In comparison to other hotspot solutions, it offers particularly flexible features.

  • Secure network separation

    Using just a single network infrastructure, the local area network and the guest network operate in parallel, and yet they remain securely separated.
  • Automatic re-login

    Yet more convenience comes with the automatic re-login. Here, the hotspot recognizes devices it knows already and authenticates them automatically. For a defined period of time, there is no need to manually re-enter the access credentials.
  • Multiple login

    With the multiple login feature, the guest can use the same access credentials to authenticate several devices at the hotspot.
  • Self-registration at the hotspott

    Instead of using paper-based access vouchers that have to be issued by your staff, we offer a fully independent method for guests to sign-up to the hotspot by using, for example, e-mail or SMS.
  • PMS compatibility

    The LANCOM hotspot solution can be combined with external billing systems such as micros or protel. Using XML, RADIUS or FIAS, it can be linked with a variety of property management systems (PMS).
  • Bandwidth management

    As of firmware version LCOS 8.82, different bandwidths can be allocated to users.
