SMC Networks introduces Hotspot Gateway Kit: The kit comprises wireless access point/bridge that includes authentication and billing services and a ticket printer for $899. The 802.11g device includes WDS support to build a larger hotspot footprint. Login can be via 802.1X. The ticket printer can produce the information needed for time-bounded sessions. The Web site doesn't offer details as to whether the 802.1X connection is secured and whether it works with a local or only remote RADIUS server.
