STOCKHOLM – Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of mobile data offloading solutions, announced today that the Aptilo 3GPP Wi-Fi Access Unified Solution feature of the Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) has been named a finalist in the Innovations in Networking Technology category for Pipeline magazine’s 2014 Innovation Awards.
“Wi-Fi has becoming an increasingly important part of mobile network fabric,” said Scott St. John, executive editor, Pipeline Magazine. “Aptilo’s 3GPP Wi-Fi Access Solution enables operators to capture the significant number of devices that are not SIM-enabled and this approach not only solves a key problem facing service providers today, but embodies the innovative spirit the COMET Awards were designed to recognize.”
Pipeline nominates companies in areas of communication and entertainment (COMET) innovation. Winners are announced at the red-carpet awards reception in Nice, France on June 1, 2014.
New security features have been added to Aptilo SMP to enable integration of carrier Wi-Fi across technologies and devices. These new innovations are:
- Enabling “trusted” 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). With this new feature Aptilo SMP extends the highest level of Wi-Fi security, with support for the standardized 3GPP Wi-Fi access, to all devices.
- Location-based multi-device login, a patent-pending Aptilo invention that makes an automatic MAC-based authentication for multiple devices more secure by tying them to an active mobile phone, belonging to the same subscriber, which is already authenticated via a secure EAP method at the same location.
