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:
The preceding list is not an exhaustive list but more like an overview of what OpenWISP can do.
Read on to find more information and video demonstrations about OpenWISP.
The server side application is modular and highly extensible, programmable and hackable.
The web modules are built with Django a web framework which is widely used, easy to extend and has a rich ecosystem of reusable components which can be used to create networking applications that are tailored to the needs of your organization.
Its configuration engine
which generates the configuration for routers and networking devices is
written in Python
and based on NetJSON.
At the moment only OpenWRT is supported for production usage, but an experimental configuration backend for Ubiquiti AirOS is also available. Moreover, the engine allows writing custom configuration backends to support any type of network OS which allows remote configuration.
This video shows how OpenWISP can be used as a network controller and wifi controller.
