EGS Pro Dual
DATA SHEET
EGS Pro Dual
Overview
The EGS Pro Dual is the latest addition to
EthoStream’s line of high-speed Internet
access (HSIA) gateway products. It is a
perfect solution to increase the aggregate
bandwidth available to hotel guests, to
provide redundancy in case of an ISP failure
or outage, or both.
Targeted to large, full-service hotels,
timeshares and government facilities,
the EGS Pro Dual completely eliminates
network downtime with its unique
dual wide are network (WAN) interface
architecture. In a class of its own, it provides
an array of features not available in other
hospitality gateways, including redundancy,
scalability and load-balancing.
Redundancy
The EGS Pro Dual is the first hospitality
gateway to incorporate the ability to accept
two wide area network (WAN) connections,
rather than just one. If your cable or
DSL connection fails, EGS Pro Dual will
automatically and nearly instantly re-route
all guest traffic through the functioning
WAN connection so that your guests may
continue to enjoy uninterrupted Internet
access while the problem is resolved.
With this redundancy feature, you are not
dependent on one individual Internet
Service Provider (ISP).
Scalability
abilities, ensuring that all bandwidth is
being utilized to its maximum potential by
evenly distributing all the data across both
connections. As an example, rather than
one 6 Mbps connection supporting 300
users, one 6 Mbps connection can support
150 users and the other 6 Mbps connection
can support the remaining 150 users. In
doing so, no true latency is experienced,
as the load is evenly distributed across
both connections.
Remote Management
Console Integration
The EGS Pro Dual is directly integrated
into EthoStream’s Remote Management
Console (RMC), enabling centralized
management, monitoring and reporting.
This industry-leading integration enables
customers to view, in real-time, the
connectivity status of each individual
WAN connection, the connection history,
the amount of traffic passed over each
individual connection and several other
features and abilities. The RMC integration
provides true transparency, as customers
can review their ROI on their EGS Pro Dual
purchase on a regular basis.
The EthoStream Support Center
constantly monitors each WAN connection
proactively, ensuring that Internet
connectivity may be restored following an
ISP outage before adversely impacting
hotels guests.
The EGS Pro Dual enables you to combine
inexpensive WAN technologies, such
as cable or DSL connections, and offer
their combined bandwidth to guests. For
example, with a 3.5Mbps cable modem
and a 1.5Mbps DSL line, you can provide
a combined 5 Mbps of bandwidth to your
guests at a fraction of the cost of a single
connection at that same speed.

• Supports unbalanced connections (e.g.
In addition to the scalability feature, the
EGS Pro Dual can also provide loadbalancing into its network management

The EGS Pro Dual is the first gateway
with the ability to accept two wide
area network (WAN) connections.
