WiFi access point for students

Hi there,

I'm new to this list and I didn't find any way to search this list's archive for my topic. So, sorry if I should bother you with an old topic.

I wonder if there are any ideas about a wifi access point that grants students/pupils access to the internet. In these days, many students have wlan featured mobile devices like phones or laptos and wish to get internet access not only from school computers, but even from their own devices.

I'm convinced that most (or even all) standard wifi solutions would not work in schools without major modifications. This is why I do ask this topic in the edu list.

What makes school wifi access different from medium sized companies or hotels? Here some of my thoughts:

* content filter required
* remote port filter required
* traffic quota per user needed as otherwise there would be traffic bottlenecks during breaks between the lessons when all want to watch the latest youtube videos ;-) * established connections need to be logged and tracked back to individual users in order to prevent misuse * maybe more detailed access control depending on age, classes, time (not during the lessons) etc.
