Internet Solutions and Access Gateway for education banner


Education has specialized needs for public Internet access. Academic campuses demand high levels of connectivity for public access and internal networks, thereby requiring stringent control and management capabilities for usage and bandwidth.

Both wired and wireless Internet connections are expected by students, faculty and visitors institution-wide, in buildings such as labs, libraries, and residence halls. Providing public access to a broad range of stakeholders can easily be turned into a steady revenue stream.

Key Features for Education

    Gateway Authentication internet solutions for Education buttonGateway Authentication

    You may authenticate your Nomadix access gateway differently depending on your desired outcome. By using a radius or our built-in group codes, you can allow multiple devices to log in with the same credentials. This works the best for vendor groups or guests who come from the same company.

    BYOD internet solutions for Education buttonBYOD Support for Multiple User Types
