InfoStar NET for Total Control!
Our outstanding and cost-efficient technology solution for hotels lets you provide timed and/or download limited Internet access to your guests.
With InfoStar NET you are able to generate so-called ‘Internet Tickets’ with temporal and quantitative restrictions for your customers. You have a user / password combination on the generated Tickets, with which your customers have a selected time period of access to the Internet. On initial access to the Internet the customer will be requested to enter a user ID and password. Should he/she not be in possession of an Internet Ticket, he/she still has the possibility to surf the Internet pages that you have declassified (for example: Hotel Websites, Tourist Offices, etc.), however he/she may not access other pages. Access not only includes surfing the web but also for example sending and receiving Emails, VPN connections, Internet chat rooms etc.
Plug & Play Technology
InfoStar NET utilizes plug and play technology to bring ease of use to a new level. This revolutionary connection eliminates the need to reconfigure IP settings on the laptop or PDA. The network uses the DHCP protocol (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) or TCP/IP protocol to communicate with any operating system, regardless of proxy or DNS settings. Plug and Play-aware operating systems include all major systems, such as Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Linux, Macintosh, and more. Plug and play connection lets users access the Internet using a PC, laptop, or PDA without adding any new software.
