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 shortlisted in the Best Broadband Access Innovation — Wireless category for the Broadband InfoVision Awards.
The Broadband InfoVision Awards celebrate innovation and excellence in the broadband marketplace. Winners will be announced October 22, 2014 in Amsterdam.
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.
