In less than $32 Million, the Government of Philipines will roll out free WiFi in the country! The country has a population of 100 Million.
Frustrated by expensive and low quality internet by telcom providers – the Government of Philippines has taken a project to provide Free WiFi access for all citizens of Philippines by 2016!
Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. and Globe Telecom will carry on this project to empower it’s citizens.
Philipines has a history of expensive and bad Internet access. Telcos failed to provide quality and affordable services to people and this is the reason the Government is investing in a countrywide Public WiFi infrastructure.
With free WiFi in the whole country, the telecom companies in the country will be forced to bring affordable mobile data access into the country.
The user authentication system can also be considered as a ‘login validation system’ for those who want to access the wireless network for free Internet. A database of successfully logged in users is maintained through this system as per legal requirements.
Instead of handing out passwords on a piece of paper the Government recommended a WiFi User Authentication that generate SMS passwords delivered directly on the users phone number.
WiFi Authentication STEP 1: Capture MAC address and phone number.
WiFi Authentication STEP 2: Generate Password and Deliver via SMS Gateway.
WiFi Authentication STEP 3: Verify Password and allow access.
This is how it should work:
|USER FLOW||SYSTEM FLOW|
|User switches on his device WiFi and selects SSID.||STARTS A NEW SESSION FOR THE USER, INITIATES USER LOGIN PROCESS|
|User’s device browser opens and loads login form. User enters mobile number||INPUT USER ID|
|User ID is registered||CHECK USER ID, REGISTER NEW USER IDS, GENERATE AND DISPATCH PASSWORD|
|User enters password that was received via SMS||INPUT USER PASSWORD|
|User can now use Free Internet service||SUCCESS PAGE|
