Cloudifi Guest Connect is a beautifully simple Captive Portal / Splash page solution used exclusively for controlling the Guest WiFi Session.
Cloudifi Guest Connect is tightly integrated with the Meraki Cloud to show session and user data rather than using a separate portal of its own - keeping things simple!
It utilizes our own Cloud-based custom built Radius Server for authentication, session control and Meraki Group Policy application to Guest sessions.
The solution appeals to those customers that want a simple Guest Access solution to use with their Meraki MR Cloud Managed Access Points or MX Security Appliances, and that don't want to pay for the sometimes rarely used 'marketing' features of other solutions.
It offers multiple authentication mechanisms including the capture of Guest name and eMail address, Click-through only, Voucher code, Paypal Express for paid access and our new Corporate version for sponsor-approved access.
The solution supports single or multiple devices with Hard Time limits applied to Guest sessions whereby Guests will only be able to use the WiFi for a defined session time per a defined time period. eg 1 hour every 4 hours. (Out-of-the-box the Meraki time limit is a soft time limit, which disconnects a Guest from a session, but then will allow them to immediately re-connect).
It also supports Hard Data limits applied to Guest sessions whereby Guests will only be able to use the WiFi up to a pre-defined download limit per a defined time period. eg 200MB every 4 hours. (Out-of-the-box Meraki has no mechanism to set or enforce a client download limit).
Automatic Off-line mode can be configured for Guest WiFi where failover to an LTE based Internet connection is detected and Guest access restricted to conserve bandwidth.
Meraki Group Policies are automatically applied to specific Authentication paths to control session bandwidth, implement custom firewall rules, and Layer 7 application restrictions.
A single standardized Mobile-friendly Splash page where the image and logo are easily interchanged by Cloudifi to customize the look of the page to the venue's requirements.
Cloudifi's New Corporate version with internally sponsored access provided via an SMS code to the Guest's phone. It provides the ability to set Time and Data usage, the number of devices allowed and the ability to assign a Group Policy by the sponsor upon approval.
Cloudifi Guest Connect is ideal for Guest WiFi authentication in Hotels, Quick Service Restaurants, retail outlets, hopping centres, cafes, bars, outdoor events, exhibitions, concerts, education facilities and in commercial settings.
Cloudifi Guest Connect has been designed as a simple but secure, cost effective and powerful solution that takes full advantage of all the Meraki specific control features found in their Dashboard and builds on them to give improved Guest access control.
Cloudifi Guest Connect pricing starts from an affordable $249 plus tax annually for a single AP using our standard Click-through portal with time restriction.
Our pricing model is based on a per AP charge, per site, per annum and varies depending on the features required.
