STOCKHOLM – Aptilo Networks, the global leader in integrated management solutions for control of billing, user services and access in WiMAX™ and Wi-Fi networks, has launched Aptilo Guest Internet Services™, a secure, next-generation wireless Guest Internet Access solution for multinational companies and large domestic corporations looking to provide temporary Internet access for visitors, whether at a single large campus or across multiple office locations.
Aptilo Guest Internet Services is a hosted, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution. It is currently deployed with several Fortune 500 companies including global telecom and information technology leaders.
“We are proud to be one of the very few vendors that can offer this kind of service on a global scale,” said Torbjorn Ward, chief executive officer, Aptilo Networks. “This is a proven solution that delivers secure guest Internet access to some of the world’s largest corporations. New enterprise customers will benefit from this best practices development.”
Aptilo Guest Internet Services utilizes a company’s existing wireless infrastructure to extend the benefits of Internet connectivity to contractors, customers and business partners while complying with corporate security and legal policies. Its flexibility makes it uniquely suited for global multi-site deployments, across a variety of types of offices and each with its own distinct infrastructure.
For enterprises that prefer to take the operation in-house (either at the start of the installation or at a later stage), Aptilo offers the same functionality as a software license via the Aptilo Guest Internet Access System™.
Both Aptilo solutions work seamlessly with any standard Wi-Fi infrastructure products. Aptilo has conducted extensive interoperability testing and made the necessary adaptations for different wireless access points and access point controllers allowing deployment in heterogeneous networks with equipment from many different vendors, including the leading vendors in the enterprise segment Aruba, Cisco and HP Procurve.
Next-Generation Guest Internet Access
Aptilo Guest Internet Services delivers secure wireless Internet access that complies with the most stringent corporate security and legal policies. It is a secure, easy-to-deploy solution that can be tailored to meet the needs of large multinational corporations that may have satellite offices with varying infrastructure requirements.
Aptilo’s Guest Internet Services works seamlessly with the infrastructure typically found in large corporations. Often, these enterprises have several satellite, or even temporary offices sitting outside the Wide Area Network (WAN), in addition to numerous sites within the network.
Simplifying the process for IT managers, the Aptilo solution utilizes a next-generation architecture that provides customers with an advanced level of control of the Guest Internet Access service, all from a centralized location. It features extensive monitoring and reporting capabilities that can be viewed in multiple levels providing each individual with the information they need.

Guest accounts can easily be made by any employee through the Guest Provisioning Portal. The solution offers a rich set of predefined Guest Provisioning flows, but can also be tailored for each individual customer’s needs. Access codes can be distributed through paper vouchers, e-mail or SMS.
