Aptilo Wins “Best Wi-Fi” for Swisscom Cloud and New Privacy Solutions

STOCKHOLM – November 12, 2018 – Aptilo Networks has together with Swisscom been recognized as winner of the Wi-Fi NOW Awards in the “Best Wi-Fi Service Provider” category. The Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) was also winner of the “Best Service Provider Wi-Fi solution” category for its new Consent and Personal Data Management Solution.

Swisscom is using Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP) and some in-house subsystems to deliver operator-managed guest Wi-Fi to their business customers in a large-scale cloud-based public Wi-Fi service in Switzerland. The solution helps Swisscom successfully compete with the many cloud services on the market, and creates opportunities for Swisscom to monetize the Wi-Fi service.

Swisscom’s Wi-Fi boasts 5,000 hotspots with 70,000 Wi-Fi access points. Currently, 2.8 million unique users consume 1,500 TB of data every month.

“Aptilo SMP is an important part of our Wi-Fi service and its potential brings us to the next level of carrier Wi-Fi evolution,” said Hanspeter Stofer, ICT Architect, Swisscom. “When selecting a partner, Aptilo was the obvious choice for proven solutions and a team that’s as committed to our success as we are.”

Aptilo SMP’s Consent and Personal Data Management Solution allows customers to bring their guest Wi-Fi offerings into compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). While GDPR is implemented in Europe, the need for Wi-Fi solutions that meet strict privacy and personal data management requirements is becoming global.

Aptilo’s Zero-touch Connectivity solution for Wi-Fi IoT Devices also won a Wi-Fi NOW Award, for Best Wi-Fi Internet of Things (IoT) Product. It opens up a mass-market for Wi-Fi-based IoT with its automatic and secure onboarding of devices.

“Since 2001, Aptilo has helped service providers and enterprises stay one-step ahead of the competition. We are proud to have our innovative solutions recognized by three Wi-Fi NOW awards,” said Paul Mikkelsen, CEO, Aptilo Networks.
