Wireless Access Control for Libraries

Wireless Access Control

iCAM Wireless Access Control is a Wi-Fi Hotspot solution that allows you to provide broadband wireless access for your library members and guests. The solution can be easily deployed using existing broadband connections or can be implemented completely independently of your current network infrastructure.

The solution has been designed to allow Wi-Fi internet access for a variety of user categories including known users (members) and guests, and includes the facility to provide and manage online registration.

Wi-Fi hotspots are not just available for your library visitors to use, they can also be used as a work aid for your own staff. Any visitor to your site can use their laptop to connect to the internet, browse for information, collect and send email and access intranet services. In addition to improving services for the public, reducing pressure on public access workstations and increasing visitors to your library or other site, your hotspot becomes a tool to facilitate remote working for all the staff in your organisation.
