No mat­ter for which area of appli­ca­ti­on you are loo­king for a WiFi solu­ti­on, we have the right hard­ware for you.

One tech­no­lo­gy plat­form for all are­as of application

Every hot­spot needs a rou­ter on which, among other things, the so-cal­led cap­ti­ve por­tal runs and the VPN con­nec­tion to the HOTSPLOTS VPN ser­vers is estab­lished. VPN rou­ting enables secu­re ope­ra­ti­on even with your own inter­net con­nec­tion, offers an inter­face for remo­te main­ten­an­ce and, espe­ci­al­ly for mobi­le or bund­led Inter­net con­nec­tions, a hig­her con­nec­tion quality.

For sta­tio­na­ry hot­spots, the main cri­ter­ion is the neces­sa­ry pro­ces­sing power. This depends abo­ve all on the speed of the inter­net connection(s) and the num­ber of simul­ta­neous users.

WiFi infra­struc­tu­re

For small loca­ti­ons, the WiFi of the hot­spot rou­ter may be suf­fi­ci­ent. All other loca­ti­ons requi­re a local net­work. HOTSPLOTS solu­ti­ons can be used with WiFi access points from all manu­fac­tu­r­ers. The easie­st way is to alre­a­dy have a pro­fes­sio­nal WiFi and sim­ply add an SSID for the public hot­spot. The data traf­fic is then sepa­ra­ted via VLAN and a HOTSPLOTS appli­ance is instal­led bet­ween the exis­ting net­work and the internet.

Depen­ding on the appli­ca­ti­on sce­na­rio, HOTSPLOTS reli­es on hard­ware from dif­fe­rent manu­fac­tu­r­ers. For devices from TP-Link and Ubi­qui­ti, the­re is also a HOTSPLOTS firm­ware in some cases. Devices from Ruckus are always ope­ra­ted with the manufacturer’s firmware.

HOTSPLOTS also offers “hos­ted con­trol­lers” for net­work com­pon­ents from various manu­fac­tu­r­ers. Here, the con­trol­ler is hos­ted in the data cent­re and replaces the con­trol­ler that would other­wi­se be ope­ra­ted in the local net­work. We curr­ent­ly offer this mana­ged ser­vice for devices from Cam­bi­um, Ruckus, TP-Link and Ubiquity.

Other acti­ve net­work com­pon­ents such as wire­less bridges, swit­ches etc. are available. Plea­se cont­act us.
