Cloud Managed WiFi

Manage APs in your network from the cloud!

Cloud Managed WiFi

Manage and monitor all access points in your WiFi network through the cloud using cloud-based multi-vendor management Start Hotspot software.

Deploy APs in one network or in multiple locations worldwide, install HotspotOS and connect it to the Start Hotspot portal.

The browser-based interface of the HotspotOS will help you easily configure and manage multiple WiFi access points from one place, through your Start Hotspot portal.

HotspotOS is a virtual controller used for cloud WiFi management,
fully integrated with Start Hotspot Cloud WiFi System,
and allows you to manage the settings of all APs in your WiFi network.

Virtual controller

Virtual controller coordinates, stores, and distributes all the settings required to provide a centralized functionality to manage the Wi-Fi network.

In a network with multiple APs, one AP will take the MASTER role and automatically control all other connected access points.

If there is a network issue, the system will automatically correct the issue without interrupting connected users, or requesting user relogin.

HotspotOS Whitelabel

The full branding of the HotspotOS is available for partners.

With Whitelabel branding, you can rebrand the HotspotOS with your company details. HotspotOS may be built with your captive portal details and your radius servers, which delivers a great user experience.

You can deliver access points to your customers with your brand, or completely whitelabel with no branding for further resale.

Wi-Fi network roaming

WiFi networks with multiple access points will likely include roaming customers. HotspotOS supports optimized vendor roaming on enterprise Wi-Fi networks. 802.11 k/v/r protocol ensures fast roaming and continuous service when moving between the WiFi locations.

Clients will get Splash page only on the first authentication. VoIP applications can now take advantage of this improved roaming to deliver better call quality when users are moving.

Unlike other cloud WiFi management software solutions that sell their controllers separately or for which the hosting price should be paid, the Start Hotspot Cloud WiFi system has an implemented virtual controller, included in the price of the monthly subscription. No extra fees!

Easy Install

The HotspotOS installation is easy.

You will install HotspotOS on your AP and connect it to the Start Hotspot portal using AP MAC address.

Instructions for setup are available on a specific AP / WiFi router page.
