Aptilo Guest Wi-Fi Cloud Shortlisted for WBA Industry Awards

STOCKHOLM – October 23, 2018 – Aptilo Networks has been named a finalist for the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) Industry Awards. Aptilo Guest Wi-Fi Cloud: B2B Guest Wi-Fi with GDPR privacy-protected marketing solutions, has been shortlisted for the Best Business Wireless Service Innovation Award.

Managed guest Wi-Fi is an operator’s best strategic B2B asset. However, launching managed guest Wi-Fi services can be daunting. Aptilo Guest Wi-Fi Cloud™ (GWC) creates rapid time-to-revenue by enabling Aptilo’s award-winning Aptilo SMP Venue Wi-Fi Manager™ (VWM) from the cloud.

Marketing features in Aptilo GWC are fully compliant with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), helping businesses engage users while protecting privacy with functions for handling personal data and smart consent pop-ups. Only the relevant consents with terms for the access method used are dynamically shown. By separating consents from portal designs, administrators can manage user consents over time and update texts without disruptive changes to the portal.

While GDPR is implemented in Europe, the need for Wi-Fi solutions that meet strict privacy and personal data management requirements is fast becoming global.

With its unique un-cloud option and reseller-friendly architecture, operators can start testing the waters of B2B guest Wi-Fi services using Aptilo GWC and then later seamlessly migrate to their own operation with Aptilo SMP VWM if they so desire.
