Hi Andrea:

Thanks for the heads up. Consider it done. Could you explain a little bit more how Clou4Wi incorporates geo web apps and how your product might differ from other cloud-managed WiFi services such as Tanaza or Power Cloud Systems?

Best Regards.

Hi Sam,

firstly thanks a lot for your prompt response

Please find below the clarifications to your questions.

1) How Cloud4Wi incorporates geo web apps

Some web apps are published directly on the splash portal and leading page in order to enhance end-user experience (e.g. spot news, around you, couponing, instant win, chat etc.), whereas other ones and business tools can be used by the Wi-Fi hotspot service provider and location owner through the control panel in order to monetize the Wi-Fi network (e.g. direct marketing, geo-targeting, click counting, etc.).

2) How Cloud4Wi might differ from other cloud-managed WiFi services such as Tanaza or Power Cloud Systems

Whilst Tanaza and Power Cloud Systems speed up the delivery and provisioning phases of a new Wi-Fi hotspot (avoiding the expensive one-by-one pre-configuration of an access point), Cloud4Wi is an application layer with cloud hotspot controller that enables next generation fully customizable services through the Wi-Fi network thanks to active contents, web apps, business tools.

Finally, you can find more info about web apps on Cloud4Wi web site web apps section (http://www.cloud4wi.com/webapps), as well as you can watch some videos on our Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/Cloud4Wi)
Best Regards
