I think that MT will somehow implement that CC billing. The
"Usermanager" is a first development towards a hotspot solution that
is working without RADIUS and is easy usable. I think that many
MT customers don't know how to do or don't want to use a RADIUS
We have this central RADIUS and central Login page system running.
We have started this RADIUS development around 2 years ago. At
that time there where no "Usermanager" available. For us (and our
customers) is the aspect of roaming very important. Our customers
want an CI and CD for all their locations. They don't want an "island
solution". We are using linux and freeradius for the central servers.
We sell this as a hotspot solution with a selfmade HTML/PHP interface
for our customers to manage their hotspot accounts on the RADIUS
server. The customers generate their accounts on their own, print them
on small cards and sell them to their hotspot customers in their hotel,
The CC implementation has only been done in theory so far, because
we haven't had any customer for that so far.
2nd: We havent found a CC billing company that offers CC billing but
_do not_ ask for the customer address details. We are looking for
a CC billing that only needs the name + CC number + expiration date +
CCV. We send no invoices or stuff like that, there is no need to know
the address. We think entering the full address keep the customers from
using the service.
If this is no point for you, a normal CC billing integration (with
authorize.com, ...) can be done via PHP scripts.
We have done a voucher printer integration (voucher printer connected
to windows pc, generating accounts on RADIUS server via HTTP/PHP
interface). The customer only has to press a button to get a new hotspot
We would love to see more scripting and serial communication
possibilities in MT which would offer a way to connect the printer
directly to a serial port on the MT router.
