Open-Mesh

Cloud Controller

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 dedicated on-site servers can now be managed centrally through the cloud and your Internet browser. Whether you are deploying a single access point or thousands across multiple sites, CloudTrax is powerful enough to meet the demands of IT professionals while easy enough for someone with little network experience. And the price? It's free: every piece of Open-Mesh hardware includes a perpetual CloudTrax license.

Get to know your network.

CloudTrax shows exactly what’s happening on your network in real time, so you can manage your users, access points and bandwidth like never before. With bandwidth monitoring and deep packet inspection*, you’ll see what applications are using your bandwidth and when your peak times are. And with user insights, you’ll have full visibility into the devices on your network, including operating system*, nearest access point, connection performance, bandwidth used and more.

*Currently in beta testing.

End network abuse.

Open-Mesh allows you to set upload and download caps on each user, block individual network abusers you notice behaving badly, or white list/black list specific devices to tightly control access.

Additionally, CloudTrax now automatically analyzes all network traffic with Layer 7 packet inspection.* You can automatically limit disruptive applications while prioritizing the applications and sites your business depends upon. *Currently in beta testing.

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, use one of several beautiful, mobile-friendly templates, or let your customers check in to and like your Facebook Page with Facebook Wi-Fi*. Once connected, users can be redirected to any page you choose.

Facebook Wi-Fi *Currently available on networks with an OM5P. Coming to all networks soon.

Never get one of these.

Other cloud networking companies not only charge a lot up front for hardware, you must buy a license to keep your access points from turning into paperweights. And if you don’t...

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.

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, connect to a third-party advertising platform, or use GuestTrack1 to integrate with a hotel property management system. It’s incredibly easy to set up, and we never take a cut.2

Safe, secure and reliable.

Open-Mesh keeps your network users safe and secure. No user traffic is sent to the cloud, and a built-in firewall prevents users on the public network from seeing each other or your wired network.

CloudTrax lives in secure and reliable EC2 data centers with global distribution and over 99.9% uptime. And even if your devices lose connection with the cloud controller, your networks aren’t affected. When a connection is established again, each device will continue checking in to the server to report usage and download any new settings. Read more about Open-Mesh trust and security here.

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 includes 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.
