What used to live in dedicated on-site servers can now be managed centrally through the cloud. Whether you are deploying a single access point or thousands across multiple sites, CloudTrax is powerful enough to meet the demands of IT professionals while easy enough for someone with little network experience
Let’s take a closer look at Open Mesh’s FREE cloud base controller: CloudTrax
CloudTrax includes free iOS and Android apps, so you can build, manage and monitor your networks while on the go.
CloudTrax grows with you. Because there’s nothing to configure on-site, adding new access points, network locations and clients takes just seconds. To add a new access point, simply enter it in CloudTrax and plug it into power and the Internet. Adding new locations is even easier: just click “Create Network” to add a new site to your account that includes a custom, site-specific login that you can share with a customer or on-site administrator. Get all of your networks behind a single pane of glass.
*Know your networks:
CloudTrax shows exactly what’s happening on your networks in near real time, so you can manage your users, access points and bandwidth like never before. With bandwidth monitoring and deep packet inspection*, you’ll see what applications are using your bandwidth and when your peak times are. And with user insights, you’ll have full visibility into the devices on your network, including operating system, nearest access point, connection performance, bandwidth used and more.
* End network abuse:
Open Mesh allows you to set upload and download throttles on each user, block individual network abusers you notice behaving badly, or white list/black list specific devices to tightly control access.
* Your network. Your brand:
With a built-in WYSIWYG splash page editor, you control the user experience from the moment a guest, resident or customer connects to your network.
Design a page from scratch to match your website, use one of several beautiful, mobile-friendly templates, or let your customers check in to and like your Facebook Page with Facebook Wi-Fi. Once connected, users can be redirected to any page you choose.
* Monetize your network. Keep 100% :
With the built-in CloudTrax captive portal, you can authenticate users, set pay-for-use options and collect secure credit card payments through PayPal, generate vouchers in real-time on the fly with Lobby Assistant, connect to a third-party advertising platform, or use GuestTrack1 to integrate with a hotel property management system. It’s incredibly easy to set up.
- Third-party service.
- Transaction fees charged by PayPal apply.
How can you take advantage of these amazing features?
Deploy your scalable, ultra-low cost, Open Mesh APs with their modular design and use them in conjunction with CloudTrax for the perfect Wi-Fi deployment. Unlike the industry standard, we take a different approach. CloudTrax is free: every piece of Open Mesh hardware includes a perpetual CloudTrax license. This means that you can use it for as long as you want, with an unlimited number of networks and Open Mesh access points.
Other benefits of using CloudTrax with Open Mesh include:
*Safe, secure and reliable.
Open Mesh keeps your network users safe and secure. No user traffic is sent to the cloud, and a built-in firewall prevents users on the public network from seeing each other or your wired network.
CloudTrax lives in secure and reliable EC2 data centers with global distribution and over 99.9% uptime. And even if your devices lose connection with the cloud controller, your networks aren’t affected. When a connection is established again, each device will continue checking in to the server to report usage and download any new settings. Read more about Open Mesh trust and security here.
*Automated outage alerts.
Don’t have time to check the network status every day? Don’t worry. If any access point goes down and doesn’t come back up within an hour, CloudTrax will automatically email you (and anyone else you designate) about it.
Outage alerts are easy to turn on and off, and always keep you in-the-know when it comes to your wireless network.
