Handlink WG-500P


Wireless Hotspot in a Printer

The Handlink WG-500P is a robust and secure hotspot solution, perfect for mini sized venues such as cafés, bars and restaurants.

The WG-500P supports time-based and volume based billing selection, so venues can set up their own billing methods by either letting the customers pay for the volume of downloads or time used. No need to worry about insufficient bandwidth as the WG-500P does an excellent job of allocating it!

The WG-500P is a favourite of small venues due to its easy setup and usage. Combining a gateway and a printer into one device, WG-500P can be applied not only in fixed venues such as coffee shops but also in mobile conditions such as buses and yachts.

We also designed a login page for venues to key-in guests/ visitors identity to fit the laws in some countries. According to the law, it requires venue owners to provide the guest’s Internet usage records for tracking. Thus the WG-500P provides a Real-time session information and the remote site administrator could monitor the real-time usage status via the Session information page.

The WG-500P is a unique innovation 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 their devices. It’s a fast, easy and trouble-free solution for Internet access.

Furthermore, the WG-500P also supports QR code printout for mobile phone users who are tired of typing the accounts and passwords on their touch screens repeatedly. Convenience has become the first priority for people today. Hence the WG-500P has become one of the best Wi-Fi solutions for all venues.
