Aruba Amigopod Visitor Management

Aruba Amigopod Visitor Management

Features

Aruba® Amigopod™ provides easy, scalable, and secure guest access

The Aruba Amigopod family of software and appliances is a scalable, easy-to-use visitor management solution that delivers secure wireless network access to guests, employees and their mobile devices.

The intuitive user interface of Amigopod greatly simplifies visitor management by streamlining workflow processes, allowing receptionists, employees and other non-IT staff to create temporary accounts for Wi-Fi access.

Guests and employees with mobile devices can self-register for network access. Once registered, Amigopod delivers account login credentials to users via SMS text message or email. Accounts can be set to expire automatically after a specific number of hours or days.

Scalable to satisfy the needs of large enterprises and multisite networks, Amigopod manages secure, role-based access for thousands of concurrent users. Amigopod also integrates seamlessly with existing multivendor networks and security devices to streamline deployments and meet compliance mandates.

With Amigopod, the corporate IT staff has one less thing to worry about and can significantly reduce operating costs and complexity.

Amigopod is available as a VMware virtual appliance or as a hardware appliance. Hardware appliances are optimized to run Amigopod software, eliminating hardware incompatibility or performance issues.
