        This paper describes how to configure XML files and create a sign-up wizard using the Wireless Provisioning Services (WPS) technology XML file authoring tool. With WPS technology, you can deploy a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) network that allows you to provide pay-per-use, monthly service, and long-term Internet access to new and existing customers through wireless access points deployed in public areas, such as airports and shopping malls.

      • WPS technology is designed for use by three types of organizations: Hotspot Service Providers (HSPs), Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs), and enterprises. HSPs deploy wireless access points in public places, such as shopping malls and airports, but HSPs are not Internet service providers (ISPs). WISPs are ISPs that either deploy Wi-Fi hotspots in public places or outsource Wi-Fi hotspot services to an HSP. Enterprises can use WPS technology to provide managed guest access on their networks.
