Description

Hotspot Manager (HM) is a multi-brand, multi-tenant Cloud solution allowing operators & integrators to customize and manage several hotspots WiFi.
This solution is used to centrally manage and operate several WiFi hotspots independently from the hotspot location and the WiFi equipment used.

The Hotspot Manager do not impose the application of a specific and owner access controller. Hotspot Manager relies on WiFi points controllers (virtualized, local, intregrated). 

This solution has multiple advantages : simplicity, reliability, competitivity. 

If needed, it is possible to centralize the access controller forwarding the data flow towards the centralized access controller dedicated to this function. 

You can manage one or several WiFi hotspots thanks to a simple web access.

All the necessary features like radius requests, captive portals, authentication modes to be used, application profiles, management of the administrators, database (users, sessions, etc.), statistics, support functions...are located in the HM server.

  • The Wi-Fi controller also works as the Internet access controller thanks to the routing attributes sent by HM
  • Zone concept: is a group of WiFi hotspots sharing the same functional parameters and the same data base
  • Mutualization : a same HM platform can drive various hotspot businesses with separated data
  • Every hotspot or group of hotspots can be managed via a simple web access
