Accuris Networks and Eminent Display SB have jointly launched a Passpoint/NGH Wi-Fi Roaming Hub for Wi-Fi, Broadband and Mobile Network Operators in Southeast Asia.
“Southeast Asia includes more than 650 million people and has some of the most advanced telecommunications providers and carrier-grade Wi-Fi networks in the world,” stated Mohd Ezizul Bin Mohd Taib, Commercial Director at Eminent Display. “Mobile and Broadband operators are looking for innovative ways to add value to their subscribers. By connecting to our ASEAN Hub, their subscribers will be able to enjoy a secure, seamless and low-cost global Wi-Fi roaming experience with access to over 100 countries. Accuris Networks have been the dominant global leader in carrier-grade Wi-Fi Offload, Roaming and Calling solutions and the latest Hub services include support for Passpoint-certified Wi-Fi roaming. We are pleased to bring these to the ASEAN market and help accelerate their adoption within the local mobile and broadband community.”
Accuris Networks is a specialist in carrier Wi-Fi services, enabling Wi-Fi roaming, billing/clearing and hub services for Wi-Fi network providers and mobile network operators. With the Accuris CONNECT SaaS platform, service providers can quickly interconnect with other Wi-Fi providers and mobile operators to enable low-cost access to data services while their subscribers are traveling as well as supporting domestic data offload.
“Passpoint-ready networks are being deployed around the world, including Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Indonesia, and now is the time to connect these networks together in a regional hub,” said Larry Quinn, Chairman & CEO of Accuris Networks. “The world’s leading smartphone device manufacturers and operating system vendors have quickly adopted Passpoint as a secure Wi-Fi solution, which is ideally suited to large Wi-Fi networks with significant subscriber traffic, and we are very pleased to work with Eminent Display to launch this important service. We have an established history of deploying strategically based roaming and inter-connect hubs and our strategy is to utilise these to also support the emerging IoT market using multiple technologies, including carrier-grade Wi-Fi networks.”
