amigopod updates guest access solution

Enhanced authentication and branding and new advertising services plug-in deliver ease of management, consistency and next generation hotspot capabilities

Melbourne, Australia, October 11, 2010 – Wavelink Communications has announced the launch of version 3.0 of  amigopod’s Unified Visitor Management operating system that includes a series of new features and functionality providing companies with greater flexibility and interactive management of corporate and public guest access.

The amigopod RADIUS server now supports multiple external authentication servers including local user database, Active Directory, LDAP, and Proxy RADIUS. As most networks tend to store user credentials in more than one location, this development simplifies access management by allowing user accounts from different places to be authenticated using a common industry-standard interface.

In addition, amigopod can now generate syslog messages for RADIUS authentication, authorisation and accounting messages that include details to enable companies to be compliant with the European Parliament Directive on data retention on public networks. Read more ❯
