Internet Solutions (IS), the leading pan-African telecommunications service provider, and Dublin-based Accuris Networks, have partnered to introduce a seamless continent-wide Wi-Fi network to global carriers, multinational companies and local Internet Service Providers.

Internet Solutions’ various independent Wi-Fi networks in the region are now consolidated using the Accuris Wi-Fi Server, enabling a carrier-grade, homogenous network accessible anywhere with single sign-on. With the Accuris Wi-Fi Server SaaS platform, service providers can quickly interconnect with other Wi-Fi providers and mobile operators to enable low-cost access to data services while subscribers are traveling as well as domestic data offload.

Using this continental network, Mobile Network Operators can access Wi-Fi offload services to address capacity demands of their smartphone users, while inbound roamers can resell Wi-Fi to subscribers who require high-quality broadband while traveling, said Accuris Networks. In-country ISPs can now monetise connectivity in venues and hospitality locations using managed Captive Portal and Landing Page services for private Wi-Fi networks – an offering common in South Africa but less so elsewhere in the region.

Kevin Pillay, CTO at Internet Solutions
Like individual consumers, our business users expect always-available connectivity that is fast, affordable and seamless. In other words, connectivity in Africa that is as reliable as connectivity wherever else their customers are located. Installing the Accuris Wi-Fi Server is part of an ongoing process of upgrading our infrastructure, services and technology to deliver on this promise.

Jeff Brown, CEO, Accuris 
Internet Solutions is a provider of choice, delivering IP connectivity to one of the world’s fastest growing markets. Accuris is pleased to provide Internet Solutions a powerful yet cost-effective carrier-grade platform to meet the demands of a growing subscriber base.
