Our impression of the WAC52N

Interface and functions:
SmartOne is a one-time-buy business router that creates a secure, manageable, and expandable, high-capacity wireless hotspot network for your customers.
Equipped with an administration interface that is easy to configure and a powerful integrated portal editor, you can create your own guest captive portal in order to easily implement and control the extended network parameters.

The Wavertech is a solid hotspot solution and very easy to use.

The guest portal has a customizable feedback system and supports up to five (SMS, Facebook, Voucher, etc.) login methods with user data collection functions.
With Waver SmartOne, you can interact with your guests by creating advertising campaigns and receiving effective customer feedback. Your own interface with start and login screen can be customized.
It helps you improve WiFi user experience, business image, services, advertising opportunities and much more.

The history of guest logins and connected devices can be displayed at minimum, average and peak times. SmartOne gives you statistics for guest user data, such as first and last login time, emails, cell phone numbers, ratings with comments from the feedback system and much more. Statistics can be viewed from hours to seasons and instantly exported or synchronized with third-party platforms or an FTP server. All data are displayed in lists or time-based graphic diagrams for easy evaluation.

Choose between free access or four different types of authentication methods with data collection capabilities for your guests: username with validity period, email, Facebook or SMS.

Website filtering with blacklist and whitelist mode options gives you complete control over web access to specific URLs, making your network more secure or allowing restricted access.

The easy-to-manage web interface enables the quick configuration of basic and advanced network parameters such as guest time session, bandwidth per guest, login types and more.
