HOTSPLOTS Icon WiFi Portal


Your communication channel within the vehicle

A WiFi portal supplements the hotspot with access to the internet and with a communication channel to the passengers. Within the portal, real-time passenger information, entertainment solutions, in-house data and advertising can be integrated. The possibilities here include, among others,

  • The display of data for the current trip, including information on possible transfer connections and any changes due to road work or delays.
  • Display of the current location on the map (“Moving Map”). This presentation can be combined with tourist information about the region.
  • Integration of news (RSS feeds). 
  • Access to entertainment content (e.g. magazines, films & series, tourist information).
  • Use of feedback forms for customer surveys.
  • Possibility to display advertising.

Entertainment offers are made available locally on the system and are therefore also available offline. If desired, updates of daily offers can be automated via the HOTSPLOTS Content Delivery Network (CDN) service. If necessary, updates are imported via “WiFi service stations” in the vehicle depots or at selected stopping points, and thus hardly affect the data volume. The portal data is offered to passengers automatically and on the browsers of their own devices after connection to the WiFi. The WiFi thus becomes an individual advertising or information channel for the provider.

Demo WiFi-Portal

You can find our Demo WiFi Portal with all available modules (e.g. passenger information, news, press and entertainment) here. Browse through the different sections and see for yourself the extensive possibilites to inform and entertain your passengers and visitors.

Hotspot provisioning

Our hotspot provisioning agreement includes the complete Wi-Fi hotspot package with associated Internet connection. The Internet connection is dedicated to the provision of the Wi-Fi hotspot. You receive everything from one source.

We have almost no pre-set specifications for the local network (LAN and WLAN). Any existing professional network can be used for the hotspot. HOTSPLOTS simply needs to supply the hotspot router or appliance, as well as the (DSL) routers and modems on the Internet side. If requested, we can also plan and deliver the entire network.

Internet access

HOTSPLOTS offers you the most suitable Internet connection for your hotspot. We select the best solution for your location from a variety of different suppliers and technologies, regardless of whether it is DSL, VDSL, coaxial cable, fibre optic or LTE etc.

If you require a high bandwidth, several connections can be used in parallel at one hotspot. Load balancing is integrated into the HOTSPLOTS appliance software.

Legal protection

Allowing us to provide your hotspot and Internet access means that you are fully protected against all legal consequences of the misuse of your hotspot by third parties. In legal terms, you are neither the operator of the hotspot nor the owner of the Internet connection; however you still decide the conditions under which HOTSPLOTS offers Wi-Fi access at your location.

Have we sparked your interest?


Our offer gives you the best Internet connection for your hotspot – and all from a single source.

A hotspot with marketing potential

HOTSPLOTS offers not only a high-performance hotspot, but also a useful extension to your location-based marketing. You are free to customise all contact points within your Wi-Fi network and adapt them to your corporate design. Access to the Internet via your hotspot is preceded by a special landing page seen by everyone who logs into the hotspot. This login page is freely configurable - simply log into your own customer area and use the convenient editor to populate it with your own content. This free advertising space enables you to inform your visitors, customers and guests about your own offers, events, and much more.

Your digital business card

Use this opportunity to adapt the name of your hotspot to your location. It will be easier for guests to find your Wi-Fi network with an easily recognisable name than with the pre-assigned SSID that most providers use - after all, it's about putting you and your company in the spotlight.

Must-have: A gateway to the Internet
Hotspot router, HOTSPLOTS appliance or LTE vehicle router

HOTSPLOTS various hardware (router)Every hotspot needs a router on which, among other things, the so-called captive portal runs and the VPN connection to the HOTSPLOTS VPN servers is established.
VPN routing enables secure operation even with your own Internet connection, offers an interface for remote maintenance and, especially for mobile or bundled Internet connections, a higher connection quality.

For stationary hotspots, the main criterion is the necessary processing power. This depends above all on the speed of the Internet connection(s) and the number of simultaneous users.

WiFi infrastructure

For small locations, the WiFi of the hotspot router may be sufficient. All other locations require a local network. HOTSPLOTS solutions can be used with WiFi access points from all manufacturers. The easiest way is to already have a professional WiFi and simply add an SSID for the public hotspot. The data traffic is then separated via VLAN and a HOTSPLOTS appliance is installed between the existing network and the Internet.

Depending on the application scenario, HOTSPLOTS relies on hardware from different manufacturers. For devices from TP-Link and Ubiquiti, there is also firmware by HOTSPLOTS in some cases. Devices from Ruckus and Aruba are always operated with the manufacturer's firmware.

HOTSPLOTS also offers "hosted controllers" for network components from various manufacturers. Here, the controller is hosted in the data centre and replaces the controller that would otherwise be operated in the local network. We currently offer this managed service for devices from Cambium, Ruckus, TP-Link and Ubiquity.

Other active network components such as wireless bridges, switches etc. are available. Please contact us.
