SC.Wi-Fi Hotspot Portal
An authorization platform for Wi-Fi networks
Wi-Fi helps mobile network operators to expand their coverage while reducing the load on their own networks without additional costs. In addition, MNO's Wi-Fi equipment allows any organization to provide Internet access for its visitors.
SС.Wi-Fi Hotspot Portal provides functionality to perform authorization, collect statistics and configure the layout of the welcome pages used when accessing the Wi-Fi network.
This solution is suitable for cafes, train stations, hotels, transport companies and any other organizations. There are personal accounts for users to work independently and a web-based administration interface for MNO's employees who can monitor the operability of Wi-Fi portals across all organizations, as well as get summary statistics.
