Business Guest Manager (BGM)

BGM or Business Guest Manager is a solution to manage your Wi-Fi visitors access with ease and security. Many groups are equipped with BGM today. Its success is mainly due to its ease of use and pricing (affordable rates based on a very simple method of calculation).

Customized hotspot proposed by BGM can offer simple and user friendly access to internet tailored to professional requirements of your guests. It is compatible with all Wi-Fi network technologies and LAN.

The BGM solution provides a choice of scenarios adapted to the kind of public addressed. The scenarios are differentiated to meet the 2 main types of hotspots :

 
  • Private hotspot: to allow guests known from a company or to employees to connect to Internet from their personal devices (BYOD approach or "Bring Your Own Device"),
