Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi Internet billing for Restaurants

Visiting a restaurant and expecting Wi-Fi access is very common these days. Restaurants are visited by customers for different reasons. Some of them only visit for a short lunch during a break from work, others for a family dinner or for a date, but whatever their reason is, in most cases they connect to a Wi-Fi network. Everyone wants to stay constantly connected to their friends, families & colleagues through facebook, whatsapp or email. As per the current trend, guests choose only those restaurants which offer wifi internet access.

Social WiFi transforms an average restaurant into a modern meeting place. The system is connected to social media. By using them the customers can share their location on their News Feed and tell their friends about being in the restaurant. Assuming that every customer has at least 200 friends on Facebook and at least 10 people per day check in at your venue, the information gets to at least 2000 people per day. A lot, isn’t it? According to statistics 50% of people learn about restaurants and cafes on social media, so it is important to be present there.

With the increasing mobile devices and bandwidth devouring apps, restaurateurs are struggling hard to cope-up with guests demand. Apart from the challenges in laying a Wi-Fi network, there are more challenges which need to be addressed to manage and maintain the Wi-Fi intenet network. Unmanaged or unsecured public Wi-Fi network leads to misuse of internet and bandwidth which ultimately becomes risky for the restaurant as well as users accessing it. For smooth & secured internet access network restaurants should implement a solution to ensure user authentication before internet access, bandwidth control, and maintain user activities logs.
