STOCKHOLM, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Switzerland's leading telecoms provider Swisscom has selected Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of carrier-class Wi-Fi service management and offloading solutions, to provide service management to support future development of their Wi-Fi offerings. The Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) has been integrated with Swisscom's existing systems, giving Swisscom the flexibility to leverage new technologies and deploy new services easily.
Swisscom is a pioneer in carrier Wi-Fi, as they were one of the first operators in the world deploying SIM authentication for a seamless Wi-Fi user experience. Swisscom's Wi-Fi network, with more than 20,000 access points and 17 million Wi-Fi sessions per month, is deployed at hotels, restaurants, railway stations, airports, universities, businesses, stadiums and other public places throughout Switzerland.

The Aptilo ServiceGlue™ functionality in Aptilo SMP allows service providers to define advanced functionality with configurable rule-sets making Aptilo SMP easy to integrate with a minimal impact on existing systems. This means that the service provider can seamlessly upgrade to Aptilo SMP while keeping the existing systems and functionality, and still benefit from Aptilo's state-of-the-art Wi-Fi service management system for new services. With Aptilo's service provider Wi-Fi solution, Swisscom has built-in flexibility to adapt to any future requirements.
