For single hotspot location (a single hotel):
The software will be installed in a PC/Sever with two NICs. One NIC is
connected to Internet router and another NIC is connected to either
Wired Network or WiFi network. All the Internet traffic will flow only
through the hotspot server. When the user tries to access Internet the
hotspot server will catch the traffic and insert the login page. The
login page will prompt the user to enter username and password. You can
specify at the foot note of the login page as 'Please contact reception
for getting WiFi Tickets'.
Each ticket is printed with randomly generated username and password.
You can design any number of prepaid plans for example; 1 hour ticket is
valid for 100 MB and the users can go only up to 512Kbps. Likewise, You

If the hotel feels it is inconvenient to print and distribute the
tickets, the hotspot server can be integrated with the Hotel Management
Software (such as IDS, WinHMS, etc) and the user will be authenticated
with the 'Room Number and First Name (or Last Name or etc).
If the hotel wants to offer Free Access for Conference Hall Members or
Fun Parties, but still wants to authenticate with their Mobile Access,
the hotspot server can be integrated with Hosted SMS Servers (or with
Serial/USB SMS Modems) and the users will be authenticated with SMS. OTP
(One Time Password) authentication modes also can be implemented.
For Multiple hotspot locations (a chain of restaurants):
The software will be installed in a centrally located PC/Server with
Public Static IP number. In each hotspot location, there will be a
location router. This location router is with One WiFi port and Four
Wired Ports. The location router will insert the login page to the
users, and will authenticate the users by consulting with the central
hotspot server. This central server can be installed either in your
