GlobalReach Technology Announces World's First Hotspot 2.0 Mobile App With Integrated Online Sign Up Solution (OSU)

Carriers Can Now Deploy Their Own Branded Wi-Fi Passpoint™ App

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Jun 30, 2015) - GlobalReach Technology (www.globalreachtech.com), a leading developer of advanced, carrier class Wi-Fi software, announced a revolutionary breakthrough in HotSpot 2.0 technology, namely a mobile App that uses the company's Odyssys platform to allow users to seamlessly and securely certify and provision mobile devices on a Wi-Fi network using HotSpot 2.0 and Passpoint™ technology.

The Passpoint solution was launched by the Wi-Fi Alliance® in 2012 to streamline user access to multiple Wi-Fi networks operated by MNO's and other carriers wishing to give their customers a more "cellular-like" experience when connecting to Wi-Fi networks; in this way Passpoint also facilitates data offloading, roaming and other services.

GlobalReach has now taken Passpoint technology one step further to facilitate HotSpot 2.0 Wi-Fi connections using a special App, one which allows the user to seamlessly connect while affording the network operator a unique way to stay in touch with their subscribers. Now carriers can deploy fully branded Apps that will not only get Wi-Fi users online quickly and easily, but will also afford opportunities for post-authentication communication through push messaging, live chat and other App-supported interactive technologies.

Nigel Wesley, CEO of GlobalReach, explained the importance of this development: "We are proud to be the first company in the world to have developed an App that fully supports HotSpot 2.0 and Passpoint," he said, adding: "This App also uses our Odyssys platform, which is the world's most advanced network management solution." Wesley went on to describe the potential impact of the new App. "We believe that this App will revolutionise not just the way that carriers work with Wi-Fi networks, but also the way that they interact with their customers and subscribers."

The App is available for both Apple iOS and Android devices.
