A T1 MNO that is using Aptilo’s mobile data offloading solution with Aptilo SIM Authentication for 3G smartphone data traffic offloading has seen an increase of nearly twenty times the number of monthly Wi-Fi sessions in the first two years and more than ten times the number of Wi-Fi users per month in three years. After deploying seamless Wi-Fi offloading solution from Aptilo Networks, the mobile operator has witnessed not only a sharp increase in the total number of Wi-Fi sessions but also the SIM authentications, which are expected to grow 3,600 percent since deployment. Aptilo notes that the SIM authentication creates an exceptional experience for users as they shift from the 3G/LTE network to Wi-Fi as there’s no need for users to login to WiFi networks and this mechanism not only creates secure connection but also automatic offloading to 3g/LTE networks.
“SIM Authentication creates a better overall data service experience, which has led to a significant boost in Wi-Fi usage for our customers,” said Torbjorn Ward, CEO, Aptilo Networks. “We are seeing more and more carriers leveraging mobile data offloading with SIM authentication to generate revenue. Seamless Wi-Fi offloading combined with a carrier-class Wi-Fi service is becoming the gold standard for mobile operators worldwide.” Read More Monthly Wi-Fi Sessions Skyrocket to 20 Million for Tier 1 Mobile Operator Using Aptilo SIM Authentication
