Summary of methods to create accounts for WiFi access?
Hi all -
Can someone summarize for me the various ways to manage "users" for WiFi access, NOT in a corporate AD-based environment?
I have a public venue environment which is _not_ part of any enterprise-AD environment.
They want to use/manage individual accounts for promoters/sales booth operators/audio-visual crews/sports event staff-coaches, when those various types of WiFi users are in the venue, as well as bill them (flat rate, not usage based) for WiFi access.
Currently the venue does not allow wholesale public WiFi access, but may wish to do so down the road.
I'm trying to figure out the most flexible approach for them to have 'user authentication' for specific SSIDs, used by
visiting promoters/sales vendors in convention booths, etc.
It's a bit confusing because Meraki tends to mix up "Administrators" with "users" as though it were a corporate network where everyone has an AD account and needs different levels of access, but all the admins and users are all from the same enterprise corporate account back end platform.
I'm wondering if Meraki Radius in some manner is an easier way to go, for creating accounts that are good for a day or three, allow billing, etc?
