Accuris Cites Tier One Traction for its Wi-Fi Offload + Wi-Fi Roaming

Accuris Networks, a privately-held company based in Dublin, Ireland, is reporting that three North American top tier mobile operators have selected its AccuROAM platform for Wi-Fi offload and also to enable International-roaming subscribers to automatically roam onto partner Wi-Fi networks when abroad. The company said its unique advantage is to offer both Wi-Fi offload and Wi-Fi roaming on one platform.

The AccuROAM platform enables subscribers to automatically and securely access operators Wi-Fi hotspots by using the subscriber’s SIM credentials for authentication. In addition to greater security, this approach also gives operators the ability to control service access, manage Wi-Fi offload connections and bill subscribers for Wi-Fi usage when roaming.

“Carriers worldwide are faced with huge challenges of network congestion and with roaming challenges as their customers travel abroad. Integrating Wi-Fi with mobile networks is essential for carrier success, not just for authentication and data but for all the services that users’ currently receive on cellular such as billing, voice, messaging and roaming,�? said Aidan Dillon, CTO, Accuris. “Rather than having to turn data roaming off when traveling, Accuris’ AccuROAM solution means that smartphone users can expect the same seamless roaming experience when they are traveling as they do when they are at home.�?
