Basic Internet Issues

Automation of vouchers

  • suggestion is to generate a Web page allowing the ordering of vouchers
content of request: #voucher, #amount of data (MByte), usage period (hours,days,months?), validity period (h, 1d?, m?)
example: 50 100 24h 7d
  • meaning: 50 voucher for 100 MByte or 24h (whatever expires first), all valid for 7 days after first usage
  • for security/accounting reason, send email to the email address registered with the person

Feedback on usage per voucher

as of today the report is created by hand, and includes 2-3 hours of work

  • need to discuss on how to automise

Feedback on usage through an AP

delayed, see BasicAdmin:AP_monitoring_through_Mikrotik
