Open-Mesh

Experience the power and simplicity of cloud-managed networking

Open-Mesh’s cloud controller, CloudTrax, is a free cloud-based network controller that helps you build, manage and monitor your wireless networks from anywhere in the world.

Say goodbye to on-site controllers.

What used to live in a dedicated server on-site can now be managed through the cloud and your Internet browser. CloudTrax is powerful enough to meet the demands of IT professionals, while easy enough to be deployed by someone with little to no network experience. Open-Mesh proves how easy robust network management can be. And the price? It's free: every piece of Open-Mesh hardware comes with a perpetual CloudTrax license.

Two SSIDs. Endless possibilities.

The Cloud Controller allows you to broadcast two unique networks, one “public” and one “private.” Your public network can be customized with powerful captive portal features, while your private network can work seamlessly as an extension of your LAN. Each network can independently be renamed, left visible or hidden, and left open or password-protected with WPA/WPA2 encryption. Easily customize each to meet your needs.

Your network. Your brand.

With a built-in WYSIWYG splash page editor, you control the user experience from the moment a guest, resident or customer connects to your network.

Design a page from scratch to match your website, or get started with one of several beautiful templates. You can also redirect users to a page of your choosing once they click to enter.

End network abuse.

The cloud controller lets you set upload and download caps on each user so there is enough bandwidth available for everyone.

With eyes on each user’s traffic, you can manually block the individual network abusers you notice behaving badly.

Monetize your network. Keep 100%.

With the built-in CloudTrax captive portal, you can authenticate users, set pay-for-use options and collect secure credit card payments through PayPal, generate vouchers in real-time on the fly with Lobby Assistant, or connect to a third-party advertising platform. It’s incredibly easy to set up. And unlike other cloud-managed network providers, we never take a cut.*

Safe and secure.

Open-Mesh is perfect for environments where security is paramount: no user traffic is sent to our cloud servers and a built-in firewall prevents users on the public network from seeing each other or your wired network by default.

For more security, protect one or both SSIDs with a WPA key, and hide either from broadcasting.

Proven reliability.

The cloud controller lives in Amazon’s secure and reliable EC2 data centers. With global distribution and over 99.9% uptime, Amazon keeps the cloud controller running when you need it.

Even if your devices lose connection with the cloud controller, your networks aren’t affected. That’s because no network traffic actually passes through the cloud controller. When a connection is established again, each device will continue checking in to the server to report usage and download any new settings.

Automated outage alerts.

Don’t have time to check the network status every day? Don’t worry. If any access point goes down and doesn’t come back up within an hour, CloudTrax will automatically email you (and anyone else you designate) about it.

Outage alerts are easy to turn on and off, and always keep you in-the-know when it comes to your wireless network.

Monitor on the go.

CloudTrax is the only cloud-based network controller with free iOS and Android apps, so you can keep an eye on your networks while on the go.

You’ll get up to the minute reports on user traffic, node status and mesh speed, all from your smart phone or tablet. For more control, simply log in to cloudtrax.com from any browser on any device.*
