Netinary’s multi-site access control solution is for any structure wishing to offer Internet access service to multiple remote sites. This solution is the result of Netinary's telecommunications providers solutions, and typically addressed to hotels or residences, service companies, or to companies with scattered offices.

This solution is structured around a central server (Central MultiBox) and light controllers on Site (Site MutiBox) controlling access to internet / intranet users.

In such configuration, all that can be centralized is located at the central server (user databases, management features, ...). Only functions that require the proximity of the user remain local to the Site Controller MultiBox . This solution optimizes the flow, reduce bandwidth requirements while ensuring compliance with legal obligations to store user data. The centralized architecture allows to operate and easily monitor a large number of sites or groups of sites, whether homogeneous or heterogeneous. The flexibility of management tools offers wide possibilities for customization to fit every organization.

Our solution significantly reduces operational and investment costs for the management of such services to a minimum, and makes possible a progressive and scalable deployment with confidence.

Solution designed to reduce your costs
