Chapter 14. Configuring Your Wi-Fi Network > Setting Up a Hotspot with a DMZ

Setting Up a Hotspot with a DMZ

Note

If you are setting up a commercial hotspot, you should get the advice of the Wi-Fi network provider you will be working with in planning the hotspot (unless you expect to be doing service provisioning yourself). You should also know that a number of turnkey “put up a hotspot” kits are available, which you can buy and not have to think about further.


Suppose that you have a small office with a network and want to set up a public Wi-Fi hotspot. The single most important requirement is that people who use the Wi-Fi hotspot should not be able to access the office network. This is important because it maintains the integrity (and security) of the office network. It's easy to imagine needing this in real life, even if you are not out to compete with Starbucks.
