Abloomy’s WiFi solution supports traditional on-premises WLAN architectures. In this scenario, CAM plays the role of a traditional wireless controller. It not only provides all the functions of a traditional WiFi controller such as network management and optimization, NAC and other wireless security functions but also provides portal, authentication, and wifi marketing functions. With firewall, NAT, VPN and routing functionalities, CAM also works as a network gateway to simultaneously manage access control for both wired and wireless networks.
Compared to normal wireless controllers, CAM enables plug-and-play AP setup with its built-in zero-touch provisioning function. This simplifies deployment and setup of a large-scale WLAN like a campus network. Also, unlike traditional wireless controllers, CAM is a multi-tenant device, which makes it possible to set up multiple isolated virtual WiFi networks used by different customers in a shared wireless coverage environment, like a multi-tenant business building covered by an ISP’s WiFi service. Deep visibility and self-optimization features guarantee network performance and stability, while role-based network access control and anti-attack functions ensure security. When used in retail markets, CAM also offers abundant WiFi marketing tools.
Both Abloomy APs and VSMs support zero-touch provisioning. When an AP or VSM registers in the cloud platform, the platform will push predefined configurations to the device, avoiding on-site work.
Abloomy adapts a distributed WiFi network architecture based on our Smart-Edge technology, creating a flexible, modularized management system for both network functions and applications. The distributed VSM layer can be scaled seamlessly and automatically creates N+N redundancy backups.
Interference in WLAN radio affects AP’s normal operation. The Abloomy platform optimizes AP’s radio allocation through adaptive channel selection, avoiding interference from neighboring APs.
The Abloomy centralized architecture easily allows roaming. The CSP series controller supports roaming across subnets without re-authentication.
Multiple authentication methods are included, such as Facebook, Google+, 802.1X, username and password, non-authentication, automatic authentication and more. After the first SMS/Social media authentication, subsequent access does not require authentication, which not only improves the user experience, but also saves on SMS expenses.
The VSM can capture and filter browsed URL information based on firewall policies from the CSP.
Role based access control is the main advantage of Abloomy products. The platform can define different levels of access roles and authorize differentiated services for the users.
Based on the policies, the data forwarding can be done either locally by AP or centrally by VSM.
Abundant portal templates are available for customers to customize their ad page. The customer can use single page or multi-page portals to present more information.
By caching content locally, customers can save bandwidth by embedding content URL links in the portal page and enabling their Wi-Fi users to locally access videos, articles, and apps, creating a much better user experience. Meanwhile, the backend system will record statistics on viewed and downloaded content to better understand user preferences and fine-tune marketing strategies.
Social media integration improves the interactions and relationships between businesses and customers, building up long-term marketing strategies.
