6. March 2020 MikroTik / VARIA

The MikroTik CAPsMAN and Hotspot course offers a simple and practically illustrated introduction to the subject of “Public Wi-Fi”.

In addition to some basics about WLAN networks and regulations, you will get a good overview of MikroTik’s central WLAN management, called CAPsMAN, and the integrated hotspot.
These topics are illustrated with practical examples and you will go through various exercises step by step.

Also advanced topics like:

  • one SSID for different networks
  • one SSID and different PSK
  • multiple hotspots on one system

are cut. Thanks to MikroTik RouterOS, such installations are also possible without RADIUS, which is explained in the course.
