4ipnet Reveals WHG711 GbE Wireless LAN Controller with Combo SFP Ports for Large Scale Wired and Wireless Deployment
Taipei, Taiwan -October 3, 2012-4ipnet, Inc., a networking device provider for manageable,
reliable and secure wireless broadband access, today released
its WHG711 Secure WLAN Controller with Gigabit Ethernet
SFP portsfor telecom-grade network operation. To accommodate
large-scale, high-density users, WHG 711 is built-in
with 15,000 local and 15,000 on-demand accounts, and capable of centrally managing
up to 500 4ipnet access points, it supports external RADIUS and EAP-SIM
authentication to bridge technical incompatibility between Wi-Fi and GSM
networks,creating a seamless Wi-Fi experience for subscribers. It further
brings in the concept of Service Zones, allowing one Controller to manage
multiple franchised hotspots at the same time.
WHG711 comes with two Gigabit and two Combo SFP ports to support optical
fiber backbone, providing sufficient internet bandwidth and making multimedia
services come true on wireless local networks for home entertainment or business
applications. As a large number of users
move around, it is essential to maintain, but limit, access to their authorized
network resources. For that purpose, WHG711
not only enforces role-based
access and bandwidth policies on each user and access point, but also
supports multiple authentication methods such as POP3, LDAP, RADIUS, Windows
Domain, and SIP registrar for VoIP services, all of which can run
simultaneously on different networks.
properties: WHG711 offers an integrated
Internet access service offerings. Coupled with 4ipnet managed
access points, it enables adequate coverage throughout the interior of each
tenant's unit; meanwhile, the facility manager or building administrator can
easily issue Internet access accounts to tenants or visitors stopping by. Speaking of visitor-based wireless access, WHG711
is equipped with on-demand account generator, customizable billing plans, and online
self-service account purchase by credit card.
It provides efficient and effective network management to retain current
residents or customers through high levels of satisfaction, and to create new
For hotels or resorts: WHG711
enables hotels and resorts to add Internet access charges to the room bill through
billing integration with hotel PMS (Property Management System). With WHG711, the hotel guest not only can
surf the Internet by wire or wireless with one set of account and password, but
is free to choose the billing option that best fits his/her need. For those who use external RADIUS to
authenticate, WHG711 can also work with the existing RADIUS server to support
central billing. When hotspot
venues want to share the same user account database, WHG711 is capable of running
site-to-site VPN tunnels to secure information flows between different
4ipnet’s built-in guest Wi-Fi feature supports flexible usage options and self-registered account creation, which securely isolates guests from the internal network. Account self-registration can be done by Email, SMS, QR code, or on any web browser when integrated with Social Media Networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

Managing SDS200W on the Web Management Interface SDS200W is designed specifically to operate in conjunction with all 4ipnet Gateways/Controllers, including both HSG and WHG series. If you are not using default settings, before connecting SDS200W to your 4ipnet Gateway/Controller, some configurations steps are required.
Go to the Web Management Interface (WMI) for SDS200W’s relevant configurations. The default values are:
IP address: 192.168.1.10
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.254
Remember to set the TCP/IP settings of the computer you use with a static IP address that is under the same subnet
as SDS200W. For example: 192.168.1.20.
The settings of SDS200W are separated into seven categories, which are
1. System – to setup the system name and device control.
2. Uplink – to determine wired / wireless relevant parameters. Any change on this page will take
effect after rebooting the system.
3. Console – to change console related settings for POS printers.
4. Utility …
enterprises prefer to tunnel all the wireless traffic from branch offices back
to the central controller at the headquarters, in order to maintain unified
security and access policies. However, this also increases bandwidth
consumption and latency, decreasing overall network performance. With
4ipnet’s solution, you now have a compromise. Different tunnel types can be
configured independently for each SSID, providing maximum deployment flexibility.
For instance, the employee SSID can continue to tunnel all the traffic back to
the controller, while the guest SSID can be configured with split tunnel –
tunneling only authentication, management, and accounting traffic back to the
controller, and allowing user data traffic to exit locally to the Internet. With
split tunnel, users get the best network experience, while the company can also
reduce unnecessary bandwidth consumption from users that do not need such tight
