SIMS caters both to continually growing customer demands for an enhanced wired and wireless broadband experience and brand or property owner’s requirements to cost effectively deliver competitive Internet amenities and IP-based services while generating additional sources of revenue.
Additionally, SIMS monitors the availability and functionality of all network equipment on property (including switches, servers, and wireless access points) using the SNMP protocol. SIMS makes it possible to have detailed or summary views of the status of your IP network, providing you with reports on a per-component basis (e.g., switch status, WAP status, system status etc).

Multi-homing of ISP Circuits - utilize Multi-homing to maintain higher availability access for inbound traffic. In turn, our load balancing and bandwidth management for outbound traffic creates more efficient bandwidth usage. SIMS monitoring and Multi-homing capabilities manage the most efficient path for different types of IP data traffic based on the status of each link and the capacity of the Internet circuit connection, allowing for integrated management of multiple cost-effective Internet circuits to assure that critical traffic is allocated the necessary bandwidth.
Increase End User Satisfaction and GSS - SIMS increases network reliability and network availability. Increase your Guest Satisfaction Scores for one of the most critical guest amenities. Without changing any settings on a visitor’s computer, i.e. IP address, DNS server, SMTP address or any other configuration information, SIMS will grant efficient network and Internet access to guests through automatic registration and authentication via your PMS.
Increased Security - with our Dynamic VLAN assignment, when any device is connected to the network, SIMS automatically routes the device to the correct VLAN. No more need to statically assign ports to specific VLANs, just think of the time and money this can save. Also, as visitors, vendors, etc. need access to the internet, these devices are automatically routed to a landing page where they mustaccept your terms and conditions for access to your public network, while restricting their access and further increasing the security of your network.
