Brazil's Largest Telecom Operator, Oi, Taps Aptilo For Service Provider Wi-Fi

CTIA 2013, LAS VEGAS, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Brazilian telecommunications provider Oi SA (NYSE: OIBR) has deployed the Aptilo Service Management Platform™ (SMP), the award-winning service provider Wi-Fi solution from Aptilo Networks. Aptilo SMP provides a carrier-class Wi-Fi service with mobile data offloading for Oi's fixed broadband and mobile customers. Oi is the second-largest telecom operator in Latin America and the largest in Brazil.

Homes and small-to-medium businesses share Oi's vast copper xDSL network and have Wi-Fi-capable routers. Oi is using the excess capacity in those residential and business locations by adding an additional SSID for their public Wi-Fi service. In this way Oi creates a huge Wi-Fi footprint and can automatically - through the SIM authentication in the Aptilo Service Management Platform - offload mobile data traffic to their xDSL pipeline from anywhere in the country.

The Aptilo service provider Wi-Fi solution, which delivers Wi-Fi services to outdoor and indoor locations through multiple Access Point (AP) vendors, consolidates the functionality in Oi's two existing Wi-Fi service management systems. Aptilo's solution will also be able to support Oi's future requirements and a rapid Wi-Fi expansion.  

"Aptilo Service Management Platform supports all the business models that were being used under the two existing systems we had, and positions us well for future requirements," said Abel Camargo, Business Development Director, Oi. "What made our choice easy when consolidating all our Wi-Fi services into one platform was Aptilo's ability to fit into our existing back-end architecture and their support for multiple Wi-Fi AP vendors."

Aptilo's wireless service management platform was easily integrated into Oi's mobile and fixed broadband core, with SIM authentication and policy lookups conducted using SOAP/XML. Options for EAP/SIM authentication, MAC address and WISPr authentication all for the same user are enabled; the network intelligently selects the best authentication method available.
