The Kremslehner Hotel in Vienna offers outdoor Wi-Fi connectivity in central Vienna. Literally two blocks away, my phone picked up their login portal when I didn't even notice that there was even a hotel nearby (I find it especially hard to distinguish one monument from another!)

The Hotel's login page was customized to allow their guests and visitors to gain internet access while strolling through downtown Vienna.  An innovative and smart way of business management, allowing the possibility to contact hotel staff in case of an emergency or  perhaps a need to re-book a room for an extra overnight stay.

From the login information displayed, it seems that all guests and visitor may obtain a username and password at the hotel's reception upon check in. Next time I'll consider an overnight stay while evaluating their indoor wireless connectivity ; )

Vienna, Austria Carrying a smart phone with you while traveling allows the possibility to discover how various Hotspot Cafe owners promotes and uses Wi-Fi to make a name for themselves.  
Last week, while I was walking by the famous Stephanplatz in Vienna, Austria I've encountered  multiple free Wi-Fi which allows users to surf the web at any nearby cafe. The efficiency  of Wi-Fi connectivity has completely convinced me to turn off my 3G roaming service, as it is very expensive and I was already over my traveling budget. 

Cafe Hawelka's login portal is an example of how local Hotspots are offering free Wi-Fi services for all tourists and locals passing by. Their intent of offering free Wi-Fi doesn't not minimize the opportunity to make money, but opens doors for anxious social-media starving tourists looking to update their social media and publicize their whereabouts. Needless to say, you can always use an extra cup of will while strolling in Vienna :)

Whatis a Wireless Hotspot?
1.It is a public area that provides wireless accessto the Internet, such as a hotel lobby, a restaurant, a Café, etc. The no. ofpeople gathered in a hotspot often ranges somewhat from 5 to 100. There isnormally no dedicated IT staff except a ‘part-time’hotspot operator. 2.Users often use their portable/handheld wireless devices- laptops, tablets, or smart phones– to log on to the Internet; on the other hand, a hotspot owner either freelygives this service to them or charge them with a certain amount of money, basedon the quota spent.    3.Customers’ needs and wants are simple: WiFi/wireless Internet access, fast and steady wirelessconnection. 4.As for a hotspot owner who can not be satisfied with merely aconsumer-grade AP giving   wireless services, they needsomethingmore robust, in terms of user management, secure authentication and datatransmission, as well as a user-friendly accounting/billing system, etc.

4ipnet Wi-Fi Channel Analysis

圖片
Overview The Channel Analysis function embedded on the Administrative Web UI is an excellent yet simple-to-use tool for IT personnel to quickly grasp an idea of what the 2.4GHz channel dynamics are. Included for channel analysis is a spectrogram, density graph and other charts to detect interference from Bluetooth devices, Microwave devices, Cordless phones, and etc.

The Spectrogram Plot This real-time spectrogram plot shows channel cleanness by color coding from blue to red. Once starting to scan the environment, administrators should see the colorful ‘canvas’ slice by slice. In fact, each vertical slice is piled up by collected samples in each 50-100ms interval. The upper the samples, the newer they are.   Interpretation of the graph is rather straightforward: if a channel ‘slice’ shows more pan-blue colors, it means that it has less Wi-Fi signal transmitted to and fro over the air.
The Density and Utilization Chart Not just letting users mentally feel which channels are cleaner and w…
