Deliverables in TI3.2 Technology and Business Aspects

Add Deliverable

Technology Issues

Based on Media:DigI_TechnIssues.pdf

A) Migration of BasicInternet.no to the cloud

  • the current platform is based on Ubuntu, and is transferred to Debian 9 for increased stability

B) Voucher creation and handling

Voucher creation

  • Cloud platform with login for (Agent) to create vouchers
  • should include the specification of the vouchers, in terms of Time, Amount, and Validity
  • Note: Sales price depends on the location and the access

Voucher sales

  • is performed by a local person

C) White List versus Black List

Our current installation is based on a White List, meaning that only white listed pages can be reached. This is the preferred solution for information hot-spots.

However, for locations with fixed bandwidth, as Patandi Teachers College and Caritas Kinderdorf, the solution might rather include black-listing, meaning

Note: the White Lists and Black Lists are handled through owncloud, and a script updates them every night

D) Login Page "accept"

Android login: After access to "BasicInternet", we get the message "sign in to network". This brings us to the login.html page (owncloud = BasicInternet = Technology = Mikrotik = TZ_villages = hotspot = login.html). But, the user has no "button" to acknowledge (Accept Free Access) versus (Add Voucher) and (Accept).

In order to use the Internet, the user has to press the 3 vertical dots in the top of the sign-in Window, and then "use network as is". Can we bring that functionality into the (Accept Free Access) button?

  • accept: should then close the window and return to the browser
  • voucher: as is, but only voucher (not username & password)

Remote update of login page

  • how do we practically update the login?

E) Blocked Pages

Currently "404 Error - not available", should redirect to login page

F) Village platform Yeboo.com

  • rudged platform as village serverm, needs a copy of "yeboo.com" on a Raspberry Pi
  • remote access through the Local Network Control Centre (LNCC)

Content for each village through phpadmin

  • need for a 1-page description (how to edit), Maurice provides the credentials
  • need for remote access to village platform (Iñaki?)

Health content

  • needs to be disabled in the villages where Christine runs the intervention
  • suggestion: redirect the link to the health section towards the "about the village"

G) Monitoring of usage

  • Maghsoud's implementation
