Gateway with bandwidth quota management and LDAP
Posted on 2010-11-09
I am looking for possible Software or Appliance solutions that have bandwidth management.
The main criteria are:
1. It must include bandwidth quota's and throttling; and,
2. It must also be able to utilise LDAP for user authentication. The user's LDAP username must be linked to their bandwidth quota;
3. The solution must have a captive portal or splash screen for logging in during LDAP authentication. The captive portal or splash screen needs to be editable for adding help info or advertising;
3. Linux or Windows solution, though an all-in-one solution would be preferred.
There are a lot of hotspot packages out there with great monitoring, management of users and with a captive portal. The problem with them is generally they don't have LDAP authentication.
I currently use a solution which is very stable, and uses LDAP authentication, but it is poor on the bandwidth management side.
