Hello all,
i have a request from a customer who rents sunbeds and umbrellas on a beach for a wifi system with authenticated access. He wants every single customer to get a ticket with his/her sunbed/umbrella with wifi credentials. The credentials must be valid for 2-3 hours. I assume i can do that with radius? Since i have no experience with that can you please suggest me if this the best and more reliable solution?

A Guest Access WLAN seems appropriate, with a limited 3 hour session timeout.
The guest gets their WLAN specific login guest pass, which neighbors on the beach
can't use (unless they share it!).  It would require a guest pass admin (receptionist)
to create these, perhaps when they rent out the sunbed/umbrellas.
