What is Hotspot?
The concept of hotspot refers to public places such as a coffee shop that provide Wi-Fi internet access for people who have devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and other devices with Wi-Fi capability.
The following figure simply shows the Hotspot structure.
In fact, it can be said that Hotspot is a place that uses a modem that allows connecting to the Internet. With devices such as laptops, tablets or smartphones, users can enjoy the experience of surfing the world of the Internet.
What kind of access is provided in Hotspot?
Internet connection in Hotspot includes three types of access:
- Free and open: This type of access is free for the user and you do not need to enter a password.
- Free with conditions: This type of access does not cost the user, but it is possible only by accepting certain conditions.
- Free for customers: This type of access is for customers of a group who must purchase the connection from the supplier. Like hotel customers who pay for access to their rooms.
- Payment for service: In this type of access, the general user is required to pay for the service.
Enjoying high-speed internet and sharing it with customers requires a stable and unlimited internet service that does not slow down during peak hours and with the increase in the number of online users. We suggest using a dedicated bandwidth service (enterprise Internet). This service offers internet with unlimited speed and traffic.

Activities such as surfing the web, checking email, connecting to the CAN network, using services with audio and video content such as Skype, online games, accessing social networking websites or blog updates are available using Hotspot.
