Video: How Guest WiFi Captive Portals Work

Captive portals are commonly used to present a login page that requires a user action to authenticate. They are typically used at public venues, restaurants, malls, or any other space where a user is required to log into a free guest WiFi service provided by a commercial space.

Aislelabs has created a video to cover how the Aislelabs Connect based captive portal works. Not only does this video detail how the captive portal and splash page work as part of the Aislelabs platform, but the underlying process which works exactly the same for all types of captive portals. Watch the video below.

This video describes exactly what a captive portal is and how it works. It details what the process is and what makes it different from a password protected system. Follow the journey mobile phones take to confirm whether a splash page is needed to authenticate access or if a phone has direct access to the internet. Discover how hardware interacts with a mobile phone and what walled gardens are. We also cover some common issues that you can troubleshoot.

Connect is built on our advanced, enterprise level platform. Gain actionable insights into who your customers are and what their behaviour is by offering captive portal based one-click access to your free WiFi via your customer’s or visitor’s social media accounts. Even better, with no need for additional hardware, you can be up and running in no time.

Connect works with our marketing automation platform Campaign. It allows you to hyper-target your customers across many different digital platforms and send multi-channel campaigns easily through email, digital advertisements, and social media platform. Get a real sense of your return on investment by going further than click-through rates.
