Hot Spots

 

Now You can have a Wireless Internet Hot Spot at your location!

Rostech provides turn key wireless internet solutions to resorts, conference centres, marinas/yacht clubs, bed and breakfasts, wineries and hotels.

Why would I want a Hot Spot at my location?  – One key reason: Attract (and keep) new customers:More and more people are becoming dependant on internet access for their connection to information, and the rest of the world. For the business traveler access to corporate networks and email is critical. For the vacationer access to the internet provides information on where to stay and what to do, and how to get there. Facilities who give their guests wireless internet access will have a competitive advantage. 

How does it work? – Almost all laptops now come equipped with wireless network cards, so no additional hardware is required. To use the internet, guests simply connect to a broadcasted Wireless Network Name and begin using the internet. Users can roam from place to place within the facility never loosing their internet connection. Users can roam from hotspot ap to hotspot ap with the same network connection information within your site.

Why don’t I just go to Future Shop and buy a wireless router and leave it open for all my customers?

  • Liability. If you leave it unprotected with no authentication then anyone can use it. This includes hackers, spammers, people downloading porn, people downloading pirated software or music. You have no control without authentication. You could leave yourself open to legal issues. You could also incur additional bandwidth charges from your isp which could be hundreds of dollars or more.  
  • Ok, so why don’t I just put in my clients MAC address into the router? This gets to be a lot of administrative overhead. What if you are not around to do this? You want to make it EASY for your clients to connect. People won’t use it if it’s difficult to use.
  • Off the shelf components don’t have the power (range) or features to properly provide Hot Spot features. At Isaiah Tubbs Resort we are covering 22 Acres. Specialized equipment is required to get that kind of rang

  • Proper authentication can give you much more control over what is going on. For eg, you could:
    • See when people log on and off.
    • See how much each person downloads
    • Set time of day restrictions for some users
    • Set different access times and rights. For eg, you could set up a user id that is valid for 24 hours or 1 week
    • Bundle internet access with your facilities without giving it away.
    • Block access to the internet for unnecessary programs such as Kazaa.
