SmallCloudBuilder picked up the news about our new CloudCommand Hotspot Edition. Here’s the posting from veteran industry writer and analyst Tim Higgins.
PowerCloud Systemshas announced a new product for OEMs to create custom cloud-managed Wi-Fi hotspots.
CloudCommand Hotspot Edition is a cloud-based platform specifically designed to rapidly deploy and manage custom Wi-Fi hotspot solutions.
The new offering differs from the first CloudCommand platform by its focus on public hotspots vs. private networks. The Hotspot Edition enables OEMs to build a wide range of hotspot products ranging from free and open to pay-by-the-minute or bandwidth.
A key feature of Hotspot Edition is that it provides multiple revenue-generating opportunities through customizable connection plans designed to fit different business models. Businesses may offer free limited access, prepaid access, pay-as-go access or any combination of these choices. Network administrators and front-desk staff can adjust access and billing settings on an individual basis.
For pay type hotspots, PowerCloud Systems handles all the back-end processing for credit card payments, with no setup required.
