Operators must go Wi-Fi in order to stay relevant in the eyes of their subscribers, most of whom already spend 80% of their active time on it. Selling attractive B2B guest Wi-Fi services to venues such as hotels, healthcare providers, enterprises, stadiums and retailers is a growth opportunity for service providers working in an otherwise saturated market. Guest Wi-Fi services also provide a way for the operators to go into these businesses to sell more products and services as well as enhance indoor coverage.
Guest Wi-Fi services at venues since 2001
Venue Wi-Fi. We have been doing it ever since the very beginning of Wi-Fi back in 2001. And as our 100+ satisfied operators can attest, we have the most flexible carrier-grade solution in the business. We also have a number of larger hotels, MDU & campuses, stadiums, retailers, airports, hospitals, enterprises and cities utilizing our cloud-based managed service for their guest Wi-Fi services.
Our operator customers have been very successful delivering attractive B2B and B2B2C guest Wi-Fi services based on the Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP), and they have been recognized for it. The FIFA 2014 World Cup stadium deployment by Oi and TIM was awarded “Best Use of Wi-Fi 2014” by telecoms.com. Hotel Wi-Fi test ranked Telia’s customer Nordic Choice Hotel as the number-one chain in the world in their global ranking of Wi-Fi service quality. They were selected among 4,000 hotels and 50 hotel chains globally.
Rotten Wi-Fi named Dublin Airport, enabled by our customer Eir (formerly Eircom) the fastest airport Wi-Fi in Europe. Rotten WiFi’s users tested and evaluated the quality of Wi-Fi in more than 130 airports.
We could have been resting on this track record, but our operator customers challenged us to take it to the next level.
