4ipnet Optimizes Wi-Fi Connectivity at Leibniz IPK Campus

4ipnet announced the deployment of its Wi-Fi connectivity and guest access solutions at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research. 4ipnet WHG-series WLAN gateway-controllers are unique from other solutions available by integrating user authentication, role-based access policy enforcement, and centralized AP management into the same box. Furthermore, the Service Zone feature allows a single WHG gateway to simulate multiple independent virtual networks, each with their own user roles, access policies, and customized login pages. With two 4ipnet WHG405 deployed, Leibniz IPK is able to offer Wi-Fi service tailored for individual user groups. Guests are assigned to the first service zone and authenticated via the built-in local user-database with accounts generated using 4ipnet's WTG keypad-based ticket printer solution. The second service zone is configured for visiting research fellows,  where users are authenticated by 802.1X directly with their home institution's "eduroam account", facilitating an even more seamless login experience. The third service zone "ipk" is reserved for the institute's employees only. As for the wireless connectivity, IPK deployed 4ipnet's EAP757, EAP767, and OWL630 access points to accommodate the various research laboratories, lecture halls, libraries, guesthouses, and outdoor facilities. The built-in enterprise-grade features of 4ipnet APs help IPK meet the demand of higher density environments, delivering a reliable user experience.

4ipnet Unveils New Multi-Tenancy and Social Wi-Fi Enhancements for Flexible Wireless Deployment and Effective Customer Insights

4ipnet announced a major expansion of its Wi-Fi hotspot and access control solution, offering service providers and organizations with additional deployment architecture flexibility, expanded multi-tenancy functionality, and improved social Wi-Fi data collection. Businesses can utilize these features to further optimize wireless infrastructure costs, deliver new experiences for customers, and obtain valuable insights from the Wi-Fi network. In addition to the benefits of decreased bandwidth consumption and improved latency, 4ipnet's split tunnel deployment architecture also provides added value to its on-demand billing platform, enabling new application scenarios. This flexibility offers an optimal compromise between network performance and security. Building on top of 4ipnet's Service Zone multi-tenancy concept, network operators now have the option of assigning independent AP group management privileges for each system administrator. A single physical WHG controller-gateway can act as multiple independent virtual networks (Service Zones), each with their own access points, customized login pages, authentication databases, user roles, and scheduling policies. Administrators can be authorized to manage one or multiple of these network entities in a tiered fashion, offering a flexible multi-tenancy architecture that caters to SMBs with limited IT resources or organizations needing managed services. For venue owners, 4ipnet's enhanced data collection features help to facilitate the monetization of the wireless infrastructure and provided increased security. Wi-Fi users can be authenticated directly via their Facebook, Google+, or OpenID accounts, and when these users login, profile information such as name, e-mail, gender, birthday, and location can be collected and used by hotspot owners to implement more effective marketing and advertising campaigns. Additionally, customizable login pages now have the capability of collecting administrator-defined fields, such as citizen ID number or passport number for public safety purposes. Combined with the 4ipnet's traffic monitoring features such as detailed user events and browsing histories, network operators can easily comply with governmental regulations and trace the source of any illegal activities. 4ipnet's enhanced multi-tenancy and social Wi-Fi functionality is available immediately within the 4ipnet WHG-series WLAN controller-gateways, and existing customers are eligible to upgrade at no additional cost.
