     125CoovaAAA is a free Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting service. You can use this service with WPA/WPA2 Enterprise WiFi routers or captive portal hotspots - pretty much any device or application that supports RADIUS.

Custom firmware for Broadcom and Atheros routers. $2000 for a full license, or $190/month hosted solution. Firmware based on CoovaAP and open-mesh. The platform is said to be based on pfsense and some question it's open-source licensing and compliance.  
     155Similar to wifi-cpa with questionable open-source licesning and compliance.
