NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Dec. 1, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Nomadix, Inc. (, the leading provider of intelligent network devices and interconnect services for organizations that own or operate public access networks, today announced it has been granted a patent by the U.S. Patent Office for its proprietary systems and methods for providing information and control on wired or wireless networks. Nomadix' Patent No. 6,789,110, "Information and Control Console for use with a Network Gateway Interface," describes the system and methods that enable a nomadic computer user to view and change important access parameters such as current bandwidth and elapsed or remaining network time, and provides a direct marketing and advertising opportunity for Public Access Service Operators (PASOs).

The Information and Control Console (ICC) is an HTML-based pop-up window that is presented to public access subscribers via their web browser and provides the ability to select bandwidth and billing options on-the-fly with a simple pull-down menu. It also provides post-paid and RADIUS users with a logout button to effectively terminate a public access session.

"The public access market is driven by the need to quickly and dynamically access important information and the ability of Nomadix' ICC patent to meet this need is a testament to the company's position as the market leader," said Kurt Bauer, president and CEO, Nomadix, Inc. "This patent provides key session customization and marketing features that will become increasingly important to subscribers and PASOs as the market matures."

The ICC is a significant part of the Nomadix 5-step service branding process offered by the Nomadix Service Engine(tm) (NSE) Core software, providing the PASO with multiple marketing opportunities during the user's session.

The NSE powers Nomadix' complete family of Access Gateways including the Universal Subscriber Gateway IITM (USG II), the HotSpot Gateway(tm) (HSG) and the AG-2000w Wireless Gateway(tm) (AG-2000W).
