The HOCHBAHN- Bus fleet equipped with MobyKlick’s WLAN offering. Now the equipment for the subway stations could be finished – the completion was planned by the end of the year. ”
Development of the extended authorization and management platform by ituma
Ituma’s Managed WLAN Solution Platform has been used by WilhelmTel / MobyKlick for the free WLAN network in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region since 2017. The platform includes a 3-tier client system (client, reseller, customer) with web login portal, radius / DHCP server, scalable WiFi gateway and reporting functionality (system utilization, number of users, average length of stay, volume / bandwidth usage per user). The user and login data are treated separately by the user traffic.
The current expansion enables the connection of the NetModules installed in the Hochbahn buses to the Mobyklick infrastructure. It ensures a separate control of the data traffic of the devices connected to the elevated railway, enables customer and voucher management via the cockpit and implements a zone profile specific to the elevated railway with bandwidth limitation, volume limitation and a defined reset time.
