Cisco Milestone: More than 200 Carriers Deploys its Carrier Wi-Fi

Cisco announced several company milestones concerning its carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution:

  • More than 200 service providers have deployed Cisco Service Provider Wi-Fi technology;
  • More than 18 million carrier-grade access points are deployed worldwide across networks operated by service providers, enterprises, stadiums, public sector entities and commercial organizations;
  • More than a half-billion mobile users worldwide receive advanced mobile services through Cisco Wi-Fi technology;

One carrier customer is PT Telkom in Indonesia, which is deploying 100,000 access points across the country -- one of the largest deployments of Wi-Fi access points by a single service provider in Asia. PT Telkom and Cisco built a high speed, high-density Wi-Fi network for the The Asia- Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit.  Attendees were able to access the network with a single-sign-on (SSO) service set identification (SSID) from any Wi-Fi enabled device across multiple APEC hosting venues, including the airport, convention centers and 51 hotels.
