SG Express 5200

A better all-in-one Service Management Platform to monetize existing Internet services, maximize limited bandwidth, and improve user experience

Designed for the hospitality sector, the ANTlabs SG Express 5200 meets the High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) needs of guest networks such as hotels, waiting rooms, business centers and F&B, while allowing hoteliers to roll out free HSIA WiFi that pays for itself.

Built on the success of its predecessor, the Inngate & SG 4, SG Express 5200 has an even better advanced bandwidth management, more authentication methods (i.e. login via Form Authentication or Social Media: Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Line, and WeChat) and analytics. The SG Express 5200’s integration with social media also opens up opportunities for hoteliers to build followings and tap the power of digital word-of-mouth.

Tight integration with many Property Management Systems allows the SG Express 5200 to automatically identify guests and provision wireless access. This reduces labor costs while improving guests’ wireless experience.

Combined with Advanced QoS, hoteliers can offer different tiers of service to different types of guests – such as unlimited bandwidth for VIPs. This generates revenue through paid WiFi plans, helping to turn a hotel’s HSIA from cost center to revenue center.

  • Authenticate against selected PMS information for wireless network access

The SG 5 can communicate with an internal network without first going through the Internet. This provides a dedicated link, separate from the WAN and LAN.

This Management Port is useful for connecting to corporate servers such as property management servers, web servers, and DNS servers.

The SG 5 lets you aggregate up to 2 separate ISP circuits for improved Internet speeds, providing link redundancy through automated failover. It reduces support issues caused by low end load balancers by using source-IP connection persistency.

It also works seamlessly with the SG 5 Lawful Intercept modules and High Availability modules.

The full HA module allows automated failover, configuration synchronization and user session synchronization.

So, in the event of a failover from faulty master nodes to backup nodes, users will not need to login again.

Through a flexible step-by-step wizard, customize, preview and generate the entire look and feel of your login portal.

Add pre-login advertisements, terms and conditions agreements, header/footer/copyright sections, logo/background/location specific images, and more.

The SG 5 works seamlessly with a user account printer, enabling one-touch generating and printing of login account credentials.

With auto-account generation and backend management, and programmable buttons for different types of accounts, give your guests instant Internet access as part of their check-in package.

Apart from traditional service plans and access methods, the SG 5 also allows you to create volume prepaid plans based on amount of data used.

In addition, the access code authentication method allows you to provision for login accounts that do not require passwords.

The open nature of visitor based networks makes malicious attacks a clear and present danger. Protect your service with the SG 5’s anti-DoS features like:

  • Web Session Rate Limits
  • ARP Storm Protection
  • IP Conflict Protection
  • SYN and DNS Flood Protection

In addition, SG 5’s advanced SMTP management functions provide anti-spam support with:

  • sender domain verification
  • SMTP connection limits
  • send-rate controls
  • size or recipient thresholds

And because SG 5 natively supports SNMP traps, administrators can be alerted of DoS attempts and service disruptions immediately.

The SG 5 keeps comprehensive logs of tracked devices, sessions, and users, searchable for troubleshooting and investigation purposes.

System maintenance has never been easier with the SG 5. Schedule the system to auto-delete, compress and email existing system reports as part of regular system maintenance, and purge expired user accounts while emailing the details for record keeping.

The SG 5 keeps comprehensive logs of tracked devices, sessions, and users, searchable for troubleshooting and investigation purposes.
