LAN Systems has announced a new service that provides end users with pre-configured routers. HotStage Logistics (HSL), aimed mainly at telecommunications providers and ISPs, gives fast delivery of Plug and Play-ready routers. HSL is also designed for resellers who don't find it cost-effective to invest the large amount of resources necessary to perform router configurations for their customers.
The first customer for HSL is AAPT Networks, which is building the VicOne network in Victoria. LAN will configure all the Cisco routers for the initial rollout of the project.
In providing HSL, LAN obtains users' IP addresses and other information before loading the correct configuration onto the router.
