[AusNOG] Captive Portal + Daily Usage

+1 for Aruba, work with it quite a lot and so far they've not let me down.

However, one thing to be aware of that I noticed yesterday in their latest "Instant" firmware ( is that the AU regulatory domain options seem to be missing from the firmware release, which I have confirmed with our Aruba rep and he's looking into why. I am unsure if this affects their controller managed firmware however.

Aruba will do what you're wanting - although like Meraki it ain't the cheapest.

How about Meraki? Could be a little more pricey compared to some of the other vendors in your list.

In a bind and needing some recommendations for products/solutions urgently to support a Public Wireless network (local council) allowing guests to Self-Register and be assigned a account with no expiry however limitations imposed on throughput up/down and a daily transfer limit.

I've looked at the following products and their captive portal offerings and none appear to do exactly what the requirements call for;

• UBNT Unifi
• Open-Mesh
• Mikrotik User Manager
• Ruckus
• Xirrus
• Aerohive
• MyWiFi Networks
• IronWifi
The difficult part appears to be the daily usage limits.

Thanks in advance
