The UAG4100 Dual-Band Wireless-N Unified Access Gateway from ZyXEL is designed for hospitality businesses. In addition to account management, billing, and data retention capabilities, this device offers features such as 802.11 a/b/g/n dual-radio Wi-Fi and a built-in WLAN controller to deliver better scalability, capacity, and performance. The built-in WLAN controller can manage up to 8 access points by default, and 16 access points via license upgrade, which makes the UAG4100 suitable for multi-room network deployments in smaller accommodation facilities like small hotels, hostels, or B&Bs (bread and breakfast).

The gateway's high performance hardware architecture can support 200 concurrent logins by default, and up to 300 concurrent logins via license upgrade. It also offers granular bandwidth management capabilities to enforce equal bandwidth sharing, avoid bandwidth abuse, and provide the service quality necessary to increase customer loyalty and attract new customers.

This unified access gateway is designed with advanced billing, user authentication, and access control features that help hospitality businesses manage guest accounts, block unauthorized access, and generate revenue with their Internet services. It gives hospitality businesses the flexibility to offer Wi-Fi access as a free service, a tiered service (premium when a purchase is made), or a paid service, depending on the preferred business model.

Featuring a built-in account generator and a Web-based authentication portal, the UAG4100 helps hospitality businesses provide controlled network access to hundreds of guests with ease. Simply by entering the provided account information in the captive portal, guests can get secure wired or wireless access to the Internet in a matter of seconds. Additionally, the UAG4100 supports external RADIUS servers and external portal page redirection for added deployment flexibility. Hospitality businesses can create up to 10 pre-paid billing plans with this unified access gateway. Billing plans can be customized with varying bandwidth speeds, service duration, and level of payment.

The SP350E Service Gateway Printer can be paired with the UAG4100. It enables one-click billing and account generation, which offers easy operation for staff members and smooth services flows in hotel lobbies, conference rooms, waiting areas and busy restaurants and cafés. The UAG4100 supports SMS ticketing with ViaNett to provide improved convenience for both the business owner and the customer. With built-in support for SMS ticketing, the UAG4100 allows business owners to send Internet account and billing information directly to the customer's mobile phone, without needing to invest in an independent SMS ticketing system.

The UAG4100 Unified Access Gateway can help hospitality businesses meet the challenges of regulatory compliance. Deployed with a syslog server, the UAG4100 can automatically record user account information, MAC addresses, source and destination IPs, data volume and protocol type for government auditing, if required.
