vSG Express/Pro

New! Introducing vSG Express and vSG Pro, ANTlabs virtualized gateway based on the SG 5 core software

ANTlabs continually innovates Cloud technologies and recognizes the need for a virtualized gateway solution.  This is specially designed for service providers who wish to consolidate their computing hardware and Cloud services in their network environment for operational efficiency and cost savings.

Designed to deliver best-in-class HSIA (High Speed Internet Access) service, the ANTlabs vSG Express/Pro meets the HSIA needs of diverse guest and enterprise networks.  With broad use cases such as Wi-Fi hotspots, hotels, waiting rooms of banks and insurance companies, business centers, shopping malls and retail F&B, while allowing service providers to roll out free or premium HSIA Wi-Fi that pays for itself.   From small hotspots deployed by a Telcos/Managed Service Provider (MSP), in budget to 5-star luxury hotels, to large airports and sprawling resorts and entertainment parks, vSG (Express & Pro) provides many options for the MSPs or System Integrators to deploy and manage their customer solutions cost-effectively, while having centralized control and ease of deployment.

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

Based on the SG 5 core software, the vSG is available in Express and Pro models,  and empowers our ANTlabs partners to leverage on vSG for more options and flexibility in deploying customer solutions, or enhancing their businesses’ overall competitiveness.   vSG Express supports up to 5000 users, 2x 1GE WAN and runs on WMWare, and even more for vSG Pro.

vSG has 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 vSG 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 vSG to automatically identify guests and provision wireless access in the hospitality industry. This reduces labor costs while improving guests’ wireless experience.

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

Giving your guests quality Internet access has never been easier.

Coupled with ASP/ASP Cloud, a comprehensive and powerful Cloud management platform, vSG Express and vSG Pro can be deployed remotely with almost zero-touch provisioning to improve productivity and reduce deployment time and costs.

The vSG Express 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 vSG Express 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 vSG Express 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 vSG Express 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 vSG Express’s anti-DoS features like:

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

In addition, vSG Express’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 vSG Express natively supports SNMP traps, administrators can be alerted of DoS attempts and service disruptions immediately.

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

System maintenance has never been easier with the vSG Express. 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 vSG Express keeps comprehensive logs of tracked devices, sessions, and users, searchable for troubleshooting and investigation purposes.

Pre-schedule events and customize your visitor digital experience with the Event Manager, and view generated reports about them.
