WNAM - Wireless Network Access Manager

There is a law effective in Russia, Belorussia, Kazakhstan and several other countries requiring to obtain and validate some identification before customer is given a free Wi-Fi access at a public place, i.e. cafe, shopping mall, car wash, cinema, parc etc. This identification could be done with SMS sent to customer's mobile, and code entered back, with some other options (voucher, government ID portals, calls etc). Before Wi-Fi access is granted, mobile device traffic shall be redirected to some identity server by means of hotspot - some software solution built-in onto Wi-Fi access point controller or Internet gateway router. The problem is ALL of commercial hotspots are very, very limited in what could be done with customer's intercepted session: customization, authentication, advertising, reporting and billing features.

This is where WNAM comes to help.

Next connection requires him to accept terms again; there you can place any advertisement (banner, video, social network "like" button) or even ask to pay for Wi-Fi access session.
