GlobalReach Provides Provisioning Power Behind New World Wi-Fi Day Drive to Boost Passpoint Hotspot 2.0 Roaming

GlobalReach Technology is providing the Wi-Fi OSU behind a new Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) programme to increase the number of consumers using Passpoint Hotspot 2.0 by giving them automatic, secure and seamless roaming across city hotspots.

Under the umbrella of the World Wi-Fi Day, New York City, San Francisco, San Jose and Singapore are temporarily setting up a city Wi-Fi roaming service. The free service will allow citizens and visiting carrier customers in the different cities to use the hotspots automatically once they’ve downloaded the Passpoint Hotspot 2.0 profile.

Users simply make a one-time download of the profile from worldwifiday.odyssys.net for seamless roaming across the cities and at all other next generation hotspots in the future.

“Using Next Generation Hotspot and Passpoint technology, the user experience is automatic and secure. It’s a perfect way for wireless service providers to add extra capacity and coverage,” said Tiago Rodrigues, senior director, Wireless Broadband Alliance.

The GlobalReach captive portal and AAA RADIUS platform for service providers features a built-in Hotspot 2.0 OSU as standard. The platform is already used to support some of the largest city Wi-Fi networks including LinkNYC, San Francisco and San Jose. It can support more than a billion authentications a month, across any mobile platform.
