Bandwidth Management and Access Gateway AG 5900 image


The AG 5900 Access Gateway is a next generation, high-performance Internet access gateway that enables the creation of a public Internet access and guest access networks. Designed with scalability in mind to accommodate medium to large sized venues — from hotels to airports to stadiums and convention centers — the AG 5900 Access Gateway features the flexibility to support from 500 up to 8,000 simultaneous devices, and up to tens of thousands of devices when using our clustering feature. With a throughput of 1.5 gigabits per second, the AG 5900 Access Gateway can meet growing bandwidth demands while keeping Internet traffic flowing.

The AG 5900 hardware platform is built upon Intel’s high-performance processors with built-in flash memory. Each system component in the AG 5900 was selected for its durability and lasting performance to ensure optimum uptime and deliver top speed regardless of user load. The AG 5900 is designed for intensive usage, supports multiple configurable wide area network (WAN) ports and multiple local area network (LAN) ports.

Unlike systems built on repurposed general-market computer platforms, the AG 5900 has been designed specifically to give reliable performance at every level of load up to its stated maximum. Based on the Wind River VxWorks real-time, multitasking operating system, the AG 5900 is architected to use less processing power and therefore runs faster. Its performance and throughput do not degrade when more features are enabled or the load is increased. Combined with the proven Nomadix Service Engine™ (NSE) core software, the AG 5900 is an ultra high-performance appliance with unparalleled reliability that can perform under a wide variety of network demands.

Why The AG 5900 Is The Right Choice:

  • Bandwidth conservation and management
  • Accomodates evolving usage patterns
  • Advanced security for network protection

Key Features on all Gateways

  • Ease of Use
    Nomadix’s patented plug-and-play technology allows end users to access the Internet without making changes to their systems. “Set and forget” functionality allows the gateway to be configured once during setup without many administrative requirements from then on. Once activated, plug and play can limit the number of support requirements for end users, as well.
  • Authentication
    Nomadix supports multiple authentication types, including self-provisioning with credit card, or direct property management folio integration. Along with support for RADIUS, 802.1x and MAC authentication, Nomadix flexibility allows for any and all of the above authentication methods to be configured and utilized at the same time.
  • Bandwidth Throttling
    Per device or per group, bandwidth capping allows for control on a granular level for the operator to sell in tiered levels to groups.
  • Speed
    Using flash file systems and a real-time operating system reduces the CPU cycles required to process the packets, allowing for nearline rate access to bandwidth through the Nomadix gateway.
  • Reliability
    Nomadix has invested more than 15 years of operating-system development to maintain full control of the code without relying on open-source patches. Nomadix also has a vigorously trained quality control team dedicated to providing a robust device to our customers. Read More
  • Captive Portal
    The flexibility to create and maintain a dedicated captive portal that is completely site specific with only some simple XML commands is an example of how Nomadix empowers our customers. The Nomadix gateway supports either the simple built-in portal or the creation of a site-specific portal.
  • Redirection
    Pre- and post-authentication redirection of Web browser requests allows the operator to manage what the customer sees, such as advertising messaging or a branded webpage to facilitate added awareness and revenue.
