Mesh Billing Solution for Open-Mesh Routers

We are now supporting Mesh Networks, using Open-Mesh.

Open-Mesh creates ultra low-cost zero-config, plug & play wireless mesh network solutions. It is open source and free.

What is "Mesh Network"?

Mesh networking is a type of networking wherein each node in the network may act as an independent router, regardless of whether it is connected to another network or not. It allows for continuous connections and reconfiguration around broken or blocked paths by “hopping” from node to node until the destination is reached.

For more information you can read Mesh Networking Wikipedia entry.

To configure mesh billing using, you only need to choose HotspotSystem as your radius config and tweak some settings. For complete instructions, please visit the Open-Mesh Billing Setup page!

NOTE: If you want to use Mesh-Networking for one or more locations, you need to use a default Skin!
