Accuris Networks, a leading WiFi firm is providing its secure, seamless Wi-Fi roaming with Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) and Passpoint™/Hotspot 2.0 technology at the Mobile World Congress this year, leveraging its AccuROAM platform.
According to Accuris, carrier customers in China and North and South America are among the first to begin using this advanced NGH-compliant network to give customers fast, secure roaming between networks, countries and carriers. The NGH standard, initiated by the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA), improves and streamlines Wi-Fi connectivity using standardized technology and has been called the future of Wi-Fi.
Jeff Brown, CEO, Accuris Networks
Making Wi-Fi networks behave like mobile networks for offload and when roaming is what our customers desire. When carriers use Accuris Networks’ technology, NGH networks have a secure authentication framework for connecting mobile devices to cellular networks without the need to enter cumbersome usernames and passwords. They also take advantage of effective charging and policy control. These first deployments of NGH-compliant networks by our worldwide carrier customers are leading the way to a carrier Wi-Fi ecosystem that will overcome current network limitations.
Shrikant Shenwai, CEO, Wireless Broadband Alliance
Accuris Networks is one of the companies working with the WBA to create NGH standards and participating in trials of the technology.
