STOCKHOLM – Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of carrier-class Wi-Fi service management and offloading solutions, announced today that the Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP), deployed by several Brazilian mobile operators to handle the surge of user activity surrounding 2014 FIFA World Cup, has won the Telecoms.com Awards for the Best Use of Wi-Fi category.
“We are honored to be recognized by Telecoms.com for our work supporting mobile operators for 2014 FIFA World Cup,” said Paul Mikkelsen, COO, Aptilo Networks. “Aptilo’s experience with very large, complicated Stadium Wi-Fi implementations serves us well. We are winning more Stadium Wi-Fi contracts than ever before, and look forward to continued success on this front.”
Aptilo SMP enables Wi-Fi offloading and carrier-class Wi-Fi with a suite of stadium Wi-Fi features. For FIFA World Cup 2014, Aptilo SMP was deployed throughout Brazil and at six stadiums, including Maracanã Stadium.
The seamless, automatic authentication of mobile devices enabled by Aptilo SMP resulted in a 70% higher connectivity rate (Bronze Game) than that of 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII. Aptilo’s carrier-class Wi-Fi services created an exceptional user experience: peak concurrent users at FIFA World Cup 2014 approximated 10,000, and the amount of sent MB/user was more than double the MB/user received.
The Telecoms.com Awards celebrate the wide-ranging achievements of the key players within the global communications sector.
With the Aptilo SMP Stadium Wi-Fi solution, services can be customized to the venue, teams, event or for other stakeholders with event-branded web portals for advertising and marketing initiatives. Social media logins make access a snap. Location-based advertising and business-to-business opportunities generate revenue for venues and carriers. These personalized, tailored services combine with a great carrier Wi-Fi experience to engage users, build loyalty and reduce churn.
