What is a Captive Portal?

 

The Captive Portal is the web page the user sees before accessing a public Wi-Fi network. Through this web page, users can authenticate themselves and register to the networks using their  personal credentials.

 

What is the function of the Captive Portal?

 

The Captive Portal enables users to access networks and connects itself to a Radius server in which access data is saved.

The Captive Portal can be used as a marketing tool to collect data and segment users, so that businesses that provide Wi-Fi to their clients can collect useful data and segment it for their marketing campaign.

Last but not least, the Captive Portal can be used to communicate information, insert audio-video advertisement and other similar content that will be seen by users during the authentication process.

Up to 8 SSIDs per Access Point

 

Tanaza allows you to create many different types of SSID: for example, an SSID for employees with WPA encrypted password, an open SSID, one with your own captive portal or one with Tanaza Splash Page for guest access. You can associate up to 8 SSIDs to each access point, even if the stock feature set of the unit doesn’t allow more than one or two SSIDs. The captive portal capability is available for all the Tanaza Powered access points.

Multi-vendor hotspots

 

Thanks to the broad selection of supported brands and models of access points, you can seamlessly upgrade existing networks or enable social hotspots on top of your favourite hardware. Tanaza Cloud Management software allows you to start cloud managing a new access point and create a new SSID with social login in less than 3 minutes!

No need for coding skills or 3rd party applications

 

If you don’t want to spend your life building your own splash page, or integrating 3rd party tools to your Wi-Fi cloud management system, we suggest you to use Tanaza splash page, that works perfectly with Tanaza cloud management system. Tanaza built-in splash page allows you to enable guest access in seconds, without any coding skills.
