We’ve had many discussions about using APIs with Wi-Fi. Mostly it’s been around learning Python, practicing with simple projects, or using scripts to enhance our work with clients.
Wiflex is an cloud-based service to help organizations onboard their customers and end users onto the Wi-Fi network.
Jonas helps solve challenges from the hospitality space to education. With Wiflex, people can use a self-serve station to get onto the Wi-Fi network securely. For example, walking into a hotel space it would not be secure if everyone used the same pre-shared key. With Wiflex, everyone can get their own unique key.
What’s interesting about Wiflex is it is API-first. What does that mean? Their solution works with Wi-Fi systems that have an API. That means they work with Ruckus, Mist, Extreme Networks, and Meraki.
Because of the API available from these vendors, Jonas has built a cloud-based service leveraging API. That’s an awesome achievement!
