Guest WiFi solution to customize hotspot splash pages and improve WiFi experience


Press play to listen to the article.

Guest WiFi is essentially a separate network on an AP to control Internet access, data usage, and connection time. To access the Guest WiFi, usually, the user goes through an authentication service in a captive portal. Guest WiFi is the most reliable way to give users access to the Internet through an existing network.

Enhance the free guest WiFi experience with a custom splash page.

Last May, we released the Splash Page Editor, an essential tool that allows Network Administrators to create a customized branding guest WiFi experience, using company logo and corporate colors in the authentication page of a public hotspot. The editor is at the core of the new Tanaza platform and is available to all customers at no extra cost.

Improve the free guest WiFi experience with a Hotspot Splash Page

The Splash Page Editor allows customers to create effortlessly internal splash pages, configure, and assign them to multiple SSIDs, thanks to a fully-responsive and more intuitive user interface. Additionally, every SSID can have its unique splash page. 

Currently, the editor offers only a click-through authentication method for free guest WiFi. Therefore, network admins don’t need to store user-session data. More authentication methods, like Facebook login, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, and VK, are on the way. Just remember, the splash page editor is the beginning, future developments will take our Splash Editor a new level.

Is Tanaza guest WiFi solution Safe?

Guest WiFi solutions represent one of the safest methods to give visitors access to the internet through existing networks. It serves as an additional layer of separation and protection between malicious attacks and the primary network.

Tanaza Guest WiFi solution ensures solid levels of security for MSPs, ISPs and SPs that desire to focus on WiFi experience customization, sleeping soundly thanks to the security of a valuable defense cloud system.

ISO/IEC compliance
Tanaza uses Amazon AWS as a secure cloud services platform.
AWS represents a trusted solution for security and has certifications for compliance with ISO/IEC 27001:2013, 27017:2015, 27018:2019, 9001:2015, and it also provides a transparent way to core systems’ health situation through AWS Security Bulletins.

Guest WiFi Data are securely stored on AWS RDS servers
Data related to Guest WiFi configuration are stored on Database using Amazon Relational Database Service while any data related to network analytics (e.g. devices’ statistics) are stored on No-SQL databases hosted on AWS servers.

SSL Certificate to protect your Guest WiFi Experience
Tanaza Guest WiFi Experience is totally reachable only via HTTPS, encrypting in this way all the communications between customers’ devices and the cloud.

Secure Wi-Fi Guest Experience Password Policy
Tanaza guarantees the strongest levels of password strength policy.
During a Tanaza account registration, all users are requested to choose a password that is compliant with a solid password policy:
– 8 characters minimum
– At least one lowercase character
– At least one uppercase character
– At least one digit
– At least one special character

This will minimize the risk of being guessed and potentially stolen in every level of your Guest WiFi experience.

Highly Customizable Splash Pages for Guest WiFi access

To build a mobile or desktop-ready splash page for guest WiFi access, it’s remarkably easy. The built-in Splash Page Editor allows users to customize the image, background, text, and login button. In terms of color, the palette available gently helps users to create their design system. In this way, users can keep brand consistency across their splash pages; the same applies to typography and buttons. Lastly, the editor allows users to set Terms and Conditions to have WiFi networks up-to-date and fully compliant with data privacy law.

If you are an Open Mesh user looking for an alternative to CloudTrax, then keep reading, this article is for you.

As you may know, the CloudTrax software that allows you to manage your Open Mesh devices is approaching the end of life in December 2021. The alternatives for Open Mesh users are pretty much reduced down to three:

  1. Migrate all Open Mesh devices to Datto, the technology solutions provider that acquired Open Mesh. However, this comes with some high-stakes investment, and not all the line of devices will be supported.
  2. Dismantle your current Open Mesh networks and deploy from scratch brand new devices. Also, considered an expensive option with all the bearing costs of deploying new networks.
  3. Migrate to Tanaza, the smartest alternative that allows you to reduce costs by 60-70%, reuse your existing Open Mesh devices, add and manage multi-brand APs from a single dashboard. By switching to Tanaza, the cloud-based network management platform, you can manage unlimited APs and networks from the cloud, centralize all your networks in a single platform, and scale networks as needed.

Tanaza, the smartest alternative to CloudTrax for your Open Mesh networks

Tanaza is a WiFi cloud management platform for IT professionals to manage and operate WiFi networks remotely. The Tanaza platform allows users to quickly install, configure and monitor hundreds of access points via the cloud through an intuitive web interface accessible from computers, tablets, and smartphones.

How does Tanaza work?

The Tanaza platform has compatibility with the most commercial Open Mesh devices on the market. This allows IT professionals to avoid dismantling the entire network and deploy from scratch brand new devices. With Tanaza, IT professionals only need to install the Tanaza firmware on their existing Open Mesh devices and start managing them from the Tanaza cloud dashboard.

Thanks to Tanaza vendor-agnostic capability, IT professionals can mix and match devices from multiple brands like Ubiquiti, Mikrotik, TP-Link, and Ligowave. Also, deploy and manage unlimited access points.

Tanaza is always adding more devices and OEM vendors to the list of compatible devices with the platform. Now users can have the Tanaza Operating System running out-of-the-box in selected devices from Comfast, Amer Networks, Intelbras, and DCN. Discover Tanaza Powered Devices.

Open Mesh devices compatible with Tanaza

Tanaza is compatible with the Open Mesh A42, A62, OM2P, OM2P-HS, OM2P-LC, OM5P-AC, and MR1750.

Open Mesh users just need to download the specific TanazaOS firmware for the Open Mesh model that Tanaza has compatibility with. Afterward, start configuring networks by adding the device’s MAC address to the platform and set up SSIDs to start broadcasting the Internet. With Tanaza, you will manage multi-brand access points and networks from a centralized cloud-managed platform.
