Emirates Data Clearing House(EDCH ), the region's largest mobile services Data Clearing House provider, announced a partnership with Accuris Networks to launch the region's first WRiX-capable (Wireless Roaming Intermediary Exchange) Wi-Fi Hub for International Wi-Fi roaming and domestic mobile data offload services.
The EDCH Wi-Fi Hub, built on Accuris Networks' AccuROAM Platform, is designed to address key issues faced by service providers in delivering Wi-Fi roaming services, such as the time-intensive process of identifying Wi-Fi providers, negotiation of terms, and implementation of Wi-Fi services. The solution also provides a GSM-architecture-based Wi-Fi service using seamless SIM-based authentication, largest range of user equipment & multi-vendor Wi-Fi network support, carrier wholesale rates, and GSM-based clearing & settlement.
Service providers worldwide are adding Wi-Fi access to their roaming packages to enhance user experience and lower costs for subscribers as they travel globally. By adding a Wi-Fi Roaming Hub, EDCH will be able to offer its service provider customers a seamless and cost-effective method to access global Wi-Fi connectivity.
