The largest telecommunications company in Brazil, Vivo has partnered with iPass to leverage its SmartConnect Software Development Kit (SDK) to offer premium Wi-Fi services to its mobile subscribers.
Vivo is Telefonica Group's Brazilian brand, offering fixed line, mobile, broadband and pay TV services to about 100 million customers throughout the country.
Using the iPass SDK, Vivo will be integrating patented iPass connection and authentication technology into its existing customer Wi-Fi application, "Vivo Travel Wi-Fi." Launched in 2016, the app expands Vivo's international roaming service to 400,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the world.
The agreement with iPass will further expand "Vivo Travel Wi-Fi" coverage to millions of Wi-Fi hotspots globally.
