Aptilo Networks Wins 14th Stadium Wi-Fi Deployment in North America

CTIA SUPER MOBILITY WEEK, LAS VEGAS – Sports and entertainment venues are scoring big with Wi-Fi with Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of carrier-class Wi-Fi service management and offloading solutions. Aptilo announced today new Wi-Fi deployments with three National Football League (NFL) stadiums getting ready for the season opening.

Aptilo now boasts 14 Stadium Wi-Fi installations in North America. These venues are home base for NFL, Major League Baseball (MLB), National Basketball Association (NBA), National Hockey League (NHL) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) teams, welcoming millions of guests every year.

The Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) provides a seamless and secure authentication of subscribers belonging to the service provider delivering the Wi-Fi service at the stadium. Aptilo SMP keeps track of all user sessions, and users who have temporarily lost contact with the Wi-Fi network are automatically logged in again when contact is re-established. Non-subscribers can login through an event-branded portal.

“Stadium Wi-Fi puts enormous pressure on the Wi-Fi network and service management systems, with tens of thousands of users rushing online at the same time,” said Jonas Jacobsson, Vice President Sales, Americas, Aptilo Networks. “Stadiums need to go carrier-class with their Wi-Fi in order to handle the sheer volume of people.”

Aptilo SMP enables customized services for the venues, teams, events or other stakeholders such as event-branded web portals for marketing initiatives. Aptilo SMP can also support location-based advertising and business-to-business opportunities which generate revenue for venues and carriers. These personalized, tailored services combine with a great carrier-class Wi-Fi experience, build loyalty and reduce churn.
