ZyXEL Announces N4100, World's First 11n Hotspot Gateway for Hospitality Services

May 24, 2010

ZyXEL Communications (TSE: 2391), the world’s leading broadband access solutions provider, today announced its new N4100, the first 11n Hotspot Gateway designed specifically for hospitality sector. Featuring 802.11n wireless performance and plug-and-play connectivity, the N4100 enables hospitality businesses to provide secure, free or chargeable, high speed Internet access. The N4100 uses the latest technology to enable better coverage and connectivity for all types of customer.
Unlike some hotspot Internet solutions, the customer fully owns the ZyXEL solution therefore all revenue goes directly to the customer giving them a quick return on their initial investment.
Today, Internet connectivity has become a basic premise for many public environments. People need to travel for work and pleasure and they demand to stay connected with friends, families and colleagues through different wireless technologies. Mobile devices such as laptops, netbooks, smart phones and game consoles are now all designed with inbuilt WiFi technology as standard. The change has driven the demand for more bandwidth, greater flexibility of connection type and higher hotspot density in wireless Internet solutions offered by hospitality businesses and public WiFi service providers.
The N4100 is the perfect addition to the existing world class range of hotspot gateways from ZyXEL, with data rates of up to 300 Mbps, N4100 delivers around 5 times the bandwidth of standard 11b/g devices. The N4100 also features the “3 Transmit 3 Receive” MIMO technology and enhanced11n-related features to provide better overall coverage.
Designed for easy configuration and operation, the ZyXEL N4100 can be used with an optional SP300 ticket printer. As no dedicated PC is needed, hospitality staff can simply push a button on the SP300 to operate the gateway solution and automatically print the information for end-user Internet access. In larger business environments, the ZyXEL N4100 can support up to ten SP300 printers installed in different locations around the premises. This provides an ideal solution that scales as the business expands or as greater Internet coverage is required.
The N4100 supports 100 concurrent users as standard and has the capability to expand to 200 users with an electronic license. With the “pay-as-you-grow” licensing service, both service providers and hospitality businesses can increase their Internet service capability as their companies grow. Meticulously designed for simple use and convenient operations, the N4100 is a high-performance, secure hotspot gateway with user-friendly features designed to enable businesses increased profitability and the delivery of higher level of services to attract and retain customers.
