Interleaf Technology, announces that their Wi-Fi solution SIP2Surf is upgraded to version 2.0. SIP2Surf is a Wi-Fi solution specially designed for libraries. With built in SIP2 support, SIP2Surf will authenticate library Wi-Fi users against all SIP2 compliant Library Management Systems. This latest version of SIP2Surf extends user authentication to Patron API from Innovative. Libraries can now authenticate users to a more granular level with Patron API. Libraries can implement rules to allow/deny Wi-Fi use based on patron type, expiration date, date of birth, and even ban individual users.
SIP2Surf is an easily deployed WI-Fi solution for libraries. Users can be authenticated against your Library Management System via SIP2. The solution can also accommodate guest users who can be authenticated via mobile phone. Or the library can print guest passes with pre-configured session lengths.
SIP2Surf is a fully configurable solution. The library can define their own rules, session duration, timeout intervals and customise the landing page. Staff can assign user roles to authenticated and unauthenticated users and move users between roles.
SIP2Surf is delivered with a full reporting suite with individual branch statistics or group statistics combining all branches in a library authority.
Martin McGovern, Technical Director at Interleaf Technology said: "We are delighted to announce the release of version 2.0 of SIP2Surf. The SIP2Surf WI-Fi solution has been very successful for Interleaf Technology and continues to grow and flourish. The ease of customisation and simple staff and user interfaces have proven very popular with our library customers. The comprehensive reports, with statistics that are relevant to libraries, are an essential feature of SIP2Surf. The various authentication methods, SIP2, Mobile phone, Guest passes and now Patron API shows that SIP2Surf is the leading specialist WI-Fi solution for libraries."
