IT Technologies-Wireless Hot Spot

A wireless hot spot can be an area as small as a cafe or as large as a convention center and hotel complex. Basically, it is an area that is served by a single Wireless LAN or network of WLANs, but not a Wide Area Network. For the end-user, the wireless hot spot is a location in which he or she establishes Internet access via a mobile wireless terminal Â- equipped to a laptop, a PDA, a smart phone, or another device.
The Hot Spot operator derives revenue directly from the user’s experience and access. Additionally, Hot Spot operators provide the access as an amenity, in order to induce customers to drive foot traffic or to purchase other products and services.
Public hotspot solutions provides you with a full portfolio of WLAN public hotspot solutions, from small “cafe sized” hotspots to hotels, to conference centers and even city-sized Metropolitan Area Networks (MANs). The solutions come with built in user management, billing, security and 3rd party application capability, which eliminates the need for you to integrate different types of hardware platforms, which sometimes require an additional investment in technical staff You get full hotspot solutions out of the box!
Public hotspot solutions are constantly sensitive to the fact that different hotspot operators have different technical requirements, and hence give you the flexibility of customizing your hotspots products.
