This specialisation of <AuthBy FIDELIO> provides an easy way to integrate WiFi hotspots and captive portals with Opera hotel Property Management System from Micros Fidelio Opens in new window.
It uses an SQL database to keep track of prepaid access time blocks for Opera guests. It authenticates new sessions with the guest's room number and guest number (as with <AuthBy FIDELIO>), creates new prepaid blocks (and posts the charge to Opera), and keeps track of the remaining time left in each prepaid block. Time-limited prepaid plans are also supported.
<AuthBy FIDELIOHOTSPOT> understands also the same parameters as <AuthBy SQL> and <AuthBy FIDELIO>. For more information, see Section 3.37. <AuthBy SQL> and Section 3.80. <AuthBy FIDELIO>. <AuthBy FIDELIOHOTSPOT> supports also all the common SQL configuration parameters. For more information about the SQL configuration parameters, see Section 3.8. SQL configuration.
