Handlink's WG-500P Hotspot in a Print got high evaluation from PC Pro Magazine


Handlink’s WG-500P has got 5 stars both in its “features & design” and “value in money” evaluated by PC Pro Magazine, the TOP 10 WEBSIT of EXPERIAN HITWISE Winner in 2010 in the UK.. PC Pro also points out that WG-500P combines everything you need to set up a wireless hotspot inside a compact thermal printer

WG-500P Hotspot In a Printer is a wireless subscriber gateway with built-in thermal printer to generate users’ accounts for internet access and is particularly suitable to small venue owners.

PC Pro says the installation of WG-500P is swift: simply connect the printer's Ethernet port to a device providing internet access and turn it on. The WG-500P also starts with one open SSID, and its web interface provides a quick setup routine.

The login portal can be customized with company logos, banners and adverts. Users can be redirected to an acceptable-use policy page or another website, and a walled garden lets you define five URLs that can be accessed without authentication.

To create a unique user account, simply push the appropriate button and the printer will output a ticket (with a QR code printed on it) that can then be handed to the customer.

PC Pro gives 4 stars to the WG-500P’s overall rating. With the WG-500P’s user friendly design, venues owners can easily train their staff to operate the gateway and print out the account ticket to access internet for their customers.

The WG-500P is one of unique innovations from Handlink, it’s more than a simple Wi-Fi hotspot device; it’s also equipped with IP Plug and Play technology so there’s no need for end-users to change any settings in the their devices. It’s fast, easy and trouble free to access Internet.
