Wi-Fi services provided by Communication Service Providers (CSP), including cable operators, mobile operators, fixed operators, and wireless Internet service providers (WISP).
The scale and complexity of the Wi-Fi service and the need for multi-vendor support. While large enterprises can have thousands of access points, they do not come close in scale to the hundreds of thousands of access points deployed by a large service provider. For example, Enea’s customer Telkom Indonesia’s Wi-Fi network is one of the largest in the world, serving more than 70 million users through 400,000+ Wi-Fi access points. Service provider Wi-Fi is also much more complex as a Wi-Fi service provider also needs to cater to all kinds of enterprise use cases in their B2B services. Finally, a service management system for service provider Wi-Fi must also be Wi-Fi vendor agnostic. Most service providers have a multi-vendor strategy to get the most optimal solution for every use case and save money by increasing the competition among Wi-Fi equipment vendors. Some also have to support their enterprise customers’ Wi-Fi access points and gateways since they are deploying, e.g., Guest Wi-Fi services on top of their customer’s equipment.

Managing Wi-Fi services with 400,000+ access points and 70 million users across 17,000 islands puts extreme demands on the Wi-Fi service management core platform.

As a Wi-Fi service provider, these fast-track possibilities mean faster time-to-market and happy subscribers with the best user experience available today.
Do You Already Have a Legacy Service Provider Wi-Fi Solution?
The Wi-Fi industry is moving fast. More service provider Wi-Fi developments have happened in the last few years than in the previous decade. It is challenging to keep up, and that is why service providers should consider commercially available solutions such as Aptilo SMP, as many service providers share the development.
We can integrate with what you have and even emulate some of the existing functionality utilizing our ServiceGlue™ concept. You can add the lacking functionality from the cloud by cherry-picking functions you need from our Aptilo SMP as a Service (SMP-S) offering.
However, sometimes it may be better to replace what you have rather than build on something that will not hold the test of time.
