Captive Portal - Additional Quota Options - To be managed from InControl2

captive-portal

#1

Hello Peplink Team & Forum collegues,
We have a client who has some specific variations requested for the Captive Portal around quota limits.

Currently the time limit is 1440 minutes (a single day).
Request is time limits quotas of:

  • 2 to 6 Days,
  • 1 to 4 weeks,
  • 1 calendar month,
  • 2 to 6 calendar months.
  • a set number of days (example 2 days to 180 days or more)

The client wishes to apply a data quota during this time, the user may share this data quota across multiple deices, though once used up that is it unless the next request is actioned.

Once the data is used up, they need an option to allocate an addition quota allowance of data though an easy management interface that the reception/management staff can use.

Another feature requested is the ability to have reoccurring data quotas rather than daily quotas such as:

  • 2 to 6 Days,
  • 1 to 4 weeks,
  • 1 calendar month,
  • 2 to 6 calendar months.
  • a set number of days (example 2 days to 180 days or more)

This data quota would be pre-assigned in the quantity similar to what is currently available to the user in the quota settings and would be assigned for the user to consume across any number of the users devices.

Other features the client is interested in are:

  • allowing the user to extend the limits by accepting additional charges for the period with the use of
    – a credit card
    – Paypal
    – accepting additional room/hotel/venue charges on the users account
  • have a way to verify user is still a current checked in patron and apply controls to patrons

These existing forum threads overlap with this request and are here for reference:

We are interested in what can be done to help here, the clients solution is due to go live in just under 3 weeks on Thursday 24 May 2018.

Happy to Help,
Marcus :slight_smile:
