What is a welcome portal?

The Welcome Portal is the web page that the user finds before accessing a public Wi-Fi network. Through this web page, users can authenticate and register using their personal credentials.

What is the function of the Welcome Portal?

The Welcome Portal allows users to access networks and connect to a server to start browsing. It can be used as a marketing tool to collect data and segment users, so that companies that provide Wi-Fi to their customers receive something in return and can use this information for their marketing campaigns.
Additionally, the Welcome Portal can be used to communicate information, insert audio and video announcements and other similar content that will be seen by users during the authentication process.

Promote a brand or product through its Wi-Fi network

The Welcome Portal is simple to configure and very simple to use for your clients: no more traffic jams during the authentication process. Add your logo and corporate image, change colors and background. Choose the authentication method: by email or phone (with verification by SMS), authentication based on coupons or login through social profiles. Publish rotating video and image ads through the embedded smart system for advertising. No programming languages or external applications!
