Nomadix Access Gateways can easily be configured to limit the upstream and downstream bandwidth consumption of each device (MAC address) or a group of devices (a group of MAC addresses). This can be done programmatically through a billing plan selection, RADIUS-based authentication process, XML-based API, or manually via the web management interface (WMI). Different or asymmetric values for upstream and downstream limits can be configured, and there are provisions in place to modify the bandwidth limits on the fly without any service interruption to users.
Grouping multiple devices together provides hoteliers and public network operators a way to limit operational expenses as more and more visitors travel with multiple devices including smartphones, tablets, laptops, media boxes, and game consoles.
The flexible bandwidth limits also enable service differentiation for VIP visitors, loyalty program members and premium users.
