Web Authentication is normally used by customers who want to install a guest-access network. In a guest-access network, there is initial user name and password authentication, but security is not required for the subsequent traffic. Typical deployments can include "hot spot" locations such as Starbucks or campus atmosphere where the only concern is the connectivity.
Web authentication provides simple authentication without a supplicant or client. Also, it doesn't provide any data encryption. Cisco WLC 526 is simple built-in Web authentication function that can be enable just like that.
Below instruction will provide how to setup web authentication page for Cisco unified system with Cisco WLC 526 and Cisco Wireless Express Access Point 521.

QoS(Qaulity of Service), it is definetly one of hot topic in IT fields. Economically, most companes are suffering in thesedays. IT budget got cut seriousely and nothing bright in near future. Owners don't want to spend a dollar to IT property. Internet traffic is continuousely growing, demanding more bandwidth as big time. Because I am working on ISP industry, I can tell how many customer's Internet pipe is bursted, and it results latency and low performance in daily basis. No more investment and bling bling, so customers are looking around to see any alternative solution to get better circumstance and escape from the hell. If your job is computer related or have to stick with Internet, slow connection will kill you in a minute and make you upset easily. No doubt! QoS is way to go, but it is not easy to deploy if you are not familiar with QoS technology or lack of knowledge.

QoS(Qaulity of Service) protocols were developed since data network demands efficiency of data delivery. Well known QoS protocols are RSVP, IntServ, DiffServ, MPLS, SBM and so on. In my opinion, just read thru and understand what those are. That would be enough unless you are crazy on QoS thoeory. There are a lot of information when you googling out there.
