The Load Balancing Router – IRG-1000

Importance of Load Balancing

The IRG-1000 supports multiple ISP connections and balances traffic equally over the connections. This effectively provides your network with more bandwidth and faster, more reliable Internet access. Without a load balancing router, all traffic is funneled through a single connection, which can cause a bottleneck, slowing down connection speeds and causing connectivity issues.

For businesses that have customers connect to their Wi-Fi, having a fast and reliable Internet connection can be imperative to customer loyalty. Suppose a busy coffee shop has 20 people using their provided Internet service without a load balancing router and a single 5Mbps ISP connection. 20 people sharing a single 5 Mbps connection at the same time will result in a slow and frustrating experience, even for just checking email or Facebook. Using a load balancing gateway or router with redundant ISP connections would provide a fast and stable online experience to customers.

Benefits of the IRG-1000 Router

Beyond load balancing, the IRG-1000 offers other benefits including very low cost, redundancy as well as firewall and gateway capabilities. It is specifically engineered to be an all-in-one solution for your business. The router can effectively become three devices in one, eliminating extra equipment costs.

  • Replace the gateway with the IRG-1000, which connects directly to ISP connections
  • Eliminates the need for a separate firewall device by providing built-in firewall capabilities
  • Provide connectivity redundancy through automatic failover in the event of ISP connection failure

Compared to other load balancing routers, the IRG-1000 is the lowest cost, high quality solution available. While other units are typically available at around $3000, we provide the IRG-1000 hardware completely free of charge less a baisc installation fee and a low monthly service agreement. Network load balancing is no longer restricted to large corporations with deep pockets. Smaller shops and medium size businesses can also enjoy the benefits of a load balancing gateway that the IRG-1000 has to offer.

Network Monitoring for Hotels

April 12th, 2011

If a business has a wifi connection, then it needs some type of network monitoring system. When connections are lost or any other problem happens, managers need to be notified as soon as possible. The sooner the problem is taken care of the sooner you can get back to running your business and increasing profits.

Hotel Network Monitoring


Millions, or perhaps even billions of people travel every year. These travelers, seeking the comforts of home, may be traveling to do business or just on simple family vacations. Either way, they are seeking hotels with some type of WiFi Internet connection. Checking to see if a hotel provides Internet service, paid or free, has become a common practice for online bookers.

After going through all of the trouble to find a wonderful hotel and then just when you are about to settle down for the night with a cup of coffee and do some Internet surfing your connection fails. Now we have a very angry guest on our hands demanding the Internet be fixed immediately or discount their room; as they reach into their pocket and begin to pull out their cell phone and tweet to their 1 million followers on the service they have received at your hotel.

From a scenario as this, we can quickly see the importance of having a network monitoring system for hotels. Managers have to be informed and ready to respond to network problems as they happen in order to compete in such a competitive market as the hotel industry.
