STOCKHOLM, November 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of mobile data offloading solutions, announced today that the Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) has been named "Best Mobile Offload Solution for Enhancing Customer Experience" by the Broadband Traffic Management (BBTM) Awards. This is the third time Aptilo has won the award.
The award for Best Mobile Offload Solution recognizes achievements in deploying scalable and flexible mobile offload solutions that enhance customer experience by reducing traffic and delivering Quality of Service (QoS) to the end user.
"We are proud to pull off a 'hat trick' in winning this prestigious award for the third time," said Johan Terve, VP Marketing, Aptilo Networks. "To stay relevant and reduce churn while saving costs by offloading traffic to Wi-Fi, operators must support all kinds of devices and offer Wi-Fi services at strategic venues such as shopping malls, stadiums and restaurants. Aptilo's expertise in bridging Carrier Wi-Fi with Venue Wi-Fi lets customers gain the maximum Wi-Fi coverage possible, and reach every Wi-Fi device in that footprint."
Aptilo SMP is a state-of-the-art system for managing Wi-Fi services including traffic offload. Aptilo SMP bridges the gap between Carrier Wi-Fi (which focuses on a secure, automatic login of users) and Venue Wi-Fi (which requires user interaction for branding and advertising) by allowing operators to provide B2B services to venue owners with carrier-class Wi-Fi.
New security features have been added to Aptilo SMP to enable integration of carrier Wi-Fi across technologies and devices. These features enable 3GPP Wi-Fi access for all devices in the Wi-Fi ecosystem. According to the standards, 3GPP Wi-Fi access is limited only to devices such as mobile phones with support for SIM authentication (EAP-SIM/AKA). Aptilo SMP extends the highest level of Wi-Fi security, with support for the standardized 3GPP Wi-Fi access, to all devices.
This support for all types of devices is not only limited to Wi-Fi data services but is also included in Aptilo's Wi-Fi Calling solution.
