The cloud captive portal is a cloud services platform that allows a wide range of organisations to easily deploy Wi-Fi access via a web based splash login page. Through page venues can engage with their Wi-Fi users by presenting them with adverts, coupons, promotions, surveys, etc.
Merchants, venues, hotels, retail outlets, bus stations, small and medium enterprises and providers can use Managed Connections to easily connect with Wi-Fi users to sell products, services, present customer loyalty programs, and otherwise influence visitors, all white labelled for the providers.
Enterprises, schools, and agencies/institutions can use the Managed Connections cloud platform to easily provide fully controlled, secure and legally compliant Wi-Fi access to employees, guests, students, and other BYOD users, and to communicate as required to these users.
Whether your goal is to monetise the free Wi-Fi service you provide your customers, or simply to provide the easiest BYOD network connectivity possible, Managed Connections provides the flexibility you need to create a great Wi-Fi user experience.
Captive Portal Cloud Service comprises the following components:
All components are delivered as a cloud hosted service, and there is no requirement to install custom servers or equipment other than UAM-capable Wi-Fi access points, controllers or NAS units.
Managed Connections AAA and Captive Portal Cloud Service makes it simple to create engaging user portal web pages to enhance the on-site user experience with tailored information and promotions for a customer or guest user.
Use our captive portal splash page themed templates for the quickest deployment or, if you have more sophisticated requirements we can apply your HTML to create a fully branded to your own identity to enhance your portal.
