Nomadix Releases New Software, Enhancing Bandwidth Management Capabilities


Hotels, MDUs, Conference Centers benefit from granular Authentication-Free Bandwidth Control

Nomadix, an industry leader in visitor-based network (VBN) technology, has announced version 8.11 of its Nomadix Service Engine (NSE) software, featuring benefits such as Default Group Bandwidth Management Policies for VLANs.
The software was developed as a response to the need for authentication-free bandwidth policies. Before version 8.11, subscribers and devices had to authenticate using either the Nomadix built-in captive portal or by using an external web portal in order to benefit from advanced bandwidth management functionalities. With NSE version 8.11, customers can get all of the features of the NSE, now without authentication, including grouping of all internet-connected devices in designated spaces such as residential apartments, personal area networks (PANs), conference rooms and beyond.

Further, by enabling its default group bandwidth management policy for virtual local area networks (VLANs), Nomadix customers can now offer residents, guests and conference attendees the ability to seamlessly connect, while giving network operators the peace of mind that their bandwidth will be distributed according to their requirements. An additional enhancement to this feature allows properties to associate these “Default Groups” with a class, which can then be prioritized, ensuring VLANs can be regulated and monetized where needed.

“The fact that bandwidth consumption continues to grow exponentially is a foregone conclusion, and it validates the importance of granular and effective bandwidth management,” said Nomadix President Fred Reeder. “Version 8.11 further refines our ability to manage and improve the end-user experience.”

NSE 8.11 represents a significant expansion for Nomadix, extending the dependable service delivery and bandwidth management functions from VBNs to more permanent settings, including apartments and offices. Primarily driven by requirements in the multiple dwelling unit (MDU) market space, Nomadix’s Layer 2 bandwidth management enables ISPs and property managers to have essential billing and service delivery controls, without the need for landing pages. For example, defining the maximum upload and download speeds can now be asymmetrically configured, and applied to all devices in a VLAN.
