WiFi access point for students
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
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.
