Create a compelling customer experience.

SputnikNet gives you complete control over customer experience, access limits and Wi-Fi business models. Offer free, branded, ad-supported or paid Wi-Fi services—or a mixture of these and other approaches—across your network or even on a single access point.

Multiple authentication methods

Device authentication

Enable devices—printers, security cameras or VoIP phones—to authenticate onto your network automatically via MAC address. Or enable approved customers to skip captive portal login altogether.

Flexible time or bandwidth limits

SputnikNet makes it easy to set time or bandwidth limits. You can also stop users from abusing your bandwidth by blocking peer-to-peer file sharing applications.

Powerful payment options

Set up your own rate plans, and accept PayPal or credit card payments in more than 144 world currencies. Keep all of your revenues—Sputnik doesn't take a cut.

Simple network security

Allow employees to use Wi-Fi for access to internal networks, but block guest users from private networks. If you need more fine-grained control over network security, Sputnik provides the ability to design and apply allow, deny, port-forwarding and destination NAT policies.

Kid-safe networks

SputnikNet makes it easy to build family-friendly hotspots. You can apply OpenDNS to any or all of the access points on your network to block inappropriate content and phishing scams.
