WiFi Billing MODES FOR THE USERS WHO CONNECT TO THE HOTEL HOTSPOT
Users who connect to WiFi hotspot can browse according to six different ways that differ from each other for what is charged to the customer during his access (credit, traffic or weather).
Let's see in detail the various ways :
Pre-paid: In pre-paid mode users have a starting pre-paid credit. After each session the credit used is deducted from the user's balance. Once the customer's credit is used up, he/she can use hotel wifi again only after recharging the account.
Post-paid: This mode allows the customer to use hotel wifi with a balance equal to zero. Once the session ends, he/she has a negative balance (account in red) for the total used during the session.
Time-based subscription: With this method the customer can use hotel wifi for a certain period of time. This period is generally subject to limits. For example, it is possible to create subscriptions which make it possible to surf for 1 hour per day or for 3 hours per week (Monday – Sunday) for the entire duration of the subscription.
Traffic-based subscription: In the traffic-based method, which may only be used by customers who connect via the hotspot or the workstations connected on Lan, the user has a certain amount of traffic available in terms of MB. Like in the previous case, this traffic may have a time limit (100 MB/day, 1GB/month, etc.).
Abbonamento Flat: This is a subscription mode : the user can user the Hotel wifi for as long as he/she wants until the subscription expires.
Free: The user can connect to hotel Wifi without charge.
