Solution Number:
Last Modified:

A portal can be configured in SteelConnect Manager > Network Design > Portals. Given this the portal has to be associated to a WiFi Broadcast in WiFi > Broadcasts > Portal.

If a portal is associated to a WiFi Broadcast the user can self register the device with several options which are explained in the different portal types section.


Portal types:

User Portal (BYOD device registration)

The portal for standard Zones will prevent non-registered Devices from accessing the relevant Network. Only Users who were set up in the SteelConnect with an email address and/or mobile phone number can self-register their Devices with the Portal.

Users can be added manually by an Administrator in SteelConnect Manager > Users or they can be automatically imported and synced with Active Directory/Google Apps (Users > Directory Sync).

Users can register their Devices using the following methods:

  • Email (Users can register themselves via pre-setup user mail address and receive an authorization code via Email)
  • SMS (Users can register themselves via pre-setup user mobile phone number and receive an authorization code via SMS)
