AmazingPorts is a Linux-based software product customised for use as a firewall, captive portal and billing system (Hotspots). The project started in 2001.

Description[edit]

AmazingPorts is mainly deployed as an access control system in private and public networks. It can be deployed as a single hotspot controller in airports, hotels, private locations and hospitals. It was used in Internet cafes in Europe by 2002 together with Intel.[1] It was used for a city-wide Wi-Fi project in 2004,[2] and Internet roaming in 2002.[3]

AmazingPorts was created in 2001 with an initial vision of building free networks. Later the company refocused and provided its technology to network builders. The company implemented service-oriented provisioning in 2002 and was the first to implement 802.11a public hotspots in Europe. During 2009 and 2010 the administrative system was updated.
