Public Internet or Wi-Fi hotspots are very common years, which we can usually find in many public places or places that require customers to use the Internet. More and more people and places around the world have access to the Internet. It is clear that the Internet and Internet access will continue to grow and will continue to be an important part of our daily lives.
Steps to prepare effective points
There are several steps to consider when creating WiFi or Hotspot Internet. I will explain the simple steps to make a public connection point.
First of all is determining your location. If you plan to make a point of public connection, you may already have a place in mind. The place you choose might be a hotel, cafe, or other important public place where people need internet access. The second is the same internet connection. You must have an Internet connection to share or sell to your customers. Find local ISPs for offers and close Internet connections. The third is hardware for sharing the Internet, usually you need a modem (from your Internet service provider or you) to connect to the Internet. You will also need a wireless router to share your Internet connection. There are many types of devices with different capabilities to consider when choosing a router. Find the person who best suits your needs.
Types of hot spots
After you have all the physical requirements to create a public WiFi network, the next step is to decide whether you want to charge the contact point or not. Wi-Fi is usually charged for hotels, camps, ports and business conferences. Places that often offer free Wi-Fi are cafes, restaurants, waiting rooms and other public places.
There are also two hot spots that you can do. The first is an unmanaged connection point system that you can manage directly using a wireless router. The second is a managed hotspot system, with this system you have to connect your wireless router to a hotspot service that allows you to manage your contact points.
Unmanaged hot spots
If you create a system-managed free connection point, you can set up your wireless router with a WPA2 security password so that clients join a WiFi network to access the Internet. There are advantages and disadvantages of unmanaged hot spots. The benefits of unmanaged WiFi are: fast, easy access, minimal maintenance and configuration. Losses from unmanaged Hotspot systems are: less secure and simultaneous use (with one password that can be accessed by many people from hot spots), and is vulnerable to hacking bandwidth.
Managed Connection Point
Another option is to have a Hotspot Managed system. The requirements are the same as before but using a managed system, you must take several additional steps to modify the wireless router to configure the connection to managed point services. There are many billing providers operating there, choose the one that best suits your needs. The advantage of managed WiFi Internet is that you can manage individual users, and you can control how much time or bandwidth you can use for individual users. You can also have your own home page before the user is connected to increase your contact point, so users can pay using a credit card to access hotspots.
These are a few steps and a simple example of what you need to do to create an online WiFi system. Remember when you have access to the public Internet to consider the needs and requirements that are appropriate for your business.
