A Hackable Network Management System for the 21st Century
OpenWISP is a modular network management system built on top of OpenWRT (but designed to allow supporting multiple embedded operating systems) that allows managing and automating several aspects of IT network deployment, monitoring and management:
registration/provisioning of new nodes creation of VPN tunnels possibility of defining configuration templates and configuration variables to make the maintenance of configurations easier and faster possibility of configuring mesh networks as well as wireless access points using WPA2, WPA3, 802.1x (WPA enterprise) , WPS, WEP, multiple SSIDs, etc. possibility of deploying any network configuration supported by OpenWRT monitoring, collection of metrics, active checks, threshold definition and alerts RADIUS (eg: for wifi access / hotspot systems or ISPs) responsive captive page with features like user registration, SMS verification, social login firmware upgrades web and email notifications for important events happening in the network network topology visualization for mesh networks and VPN networks
The preceding list is not an exhaustive list but more like an overview of what OpenWISP can do.
