As I have mentioned earlier, I have been working on a new hotspot system for our hotspots. This system will be initially used in the five caravan parks operated by the Maroochy Shire Council.
I have completed most of what needs to be done for the backend and router configuration. The only components left to do are receipt generation and account clean up (removing unused or old accounts). The roll out should proceed on time at the end of this month.
I will let the system run for a few months before I establish it as stable, during this time I will probably run a few tweaks etc. I need to sort out a few things with paths and file locations that I'm sure are well covered in the land of perl.
Once stable I will personally take it on to push the product into the Queensland road tourism market. Aiming mainly at the caravan parks that attract tourists and other temporary visitors. I may even try implementing the system at camping grounds - solar power and satellite?
If you are interested in this sort of system, feel free to contact me.
