Captive portals are becoming a popular way for operators to provide user authentication and IP flow management (basically traffic shaping and bandwidth control) without a required client application. They work by forcing un-authenticated users to a web page, once “captured” by allowing the web page to interact for complete access control.
Our Captive Portal solution for core network components are based on different scenarios such as:
- Existing customers who choose to access Wi-Fi over IPoE (DHCP based access mechanism) i.e., through Captive Portal.
- Other than existing customers, the system will allow such users through their MSISDN number but for such users charging is not applicable.
- Public Wi-Fi hotspots e.g, malls, lounges where users will buy vouchers of various denominations and access Wi-Fi.
