is a WISPR
implementation that can redirect users to an external WEB server for
login. This WEB server can be a complex
series of pages including support for direct billing and backend support.
Authentication can be done to the Zone Director Local Data base, external
RADIUS, Active Directory or LDAP servers. The Hotspot also provides for Walled Garden
definition that permits unauthenticated users to access specific WEB sites.
How your backend services apply payment methods (PayPal or other) is not specific to the wireless service.

RADIUS accounting allows you to register the amount of time a users is connected, for billing purposes.
6.1 RADIUS Accounting Behavior
In ZD-managed network, ZD plays the role of RADIUS client, which is responsible
for sending Accounting Request. The events to trigger Accounting Request with
different Acct-Status-Type are listed as follows.
• ZD sends Accounting-On to external RADIUS server when an AP joins.
• ZD sends Accounting-Off when an AP leaves. Thus the AP restart operation
triggers Accounting-Off and then Accounting-On.
• ZD sends Accounting-Start and Accounting-Stop when a client associates and
• ZD periodically sends Interim-Update for an associated client.
