Hi everyone! I’ve been exploring tools used for community network management/planning/etc and wonder what folks are currently using. Right now, particularly for captive portal management, Ive found CoovaChilli to be the best but it has its issues.
Ideally, you could have a plug and play mechanism when a user could grab the components needed (captival portal, billing management, network monitoring). OpenWISP is doing some of this, I believe.
Also there is nothing I’ve see so far that provide a NetBox like management interface for community networks in addition to tools to support in the network planning phase, ip address management. Would love to hear about tools folks are using.
I’m playing around with idea for a more modular version of coova-chilli and a general management and planning solution. Would love thoughts on what the community thinks is missing and needed on the management and planning side.
