Aptilo and Stoke Collaborate in Seamless Wi-Fi Access for Mobile Broadband Carriers
New Offering Streamlines Integration Between Cellular and Wi-Fi Networks


Streamlining integration between mobile broadband and Wi-Fi networks, Aptilo Networks and Stoke have partnered to deliver an end-to-end solution allowing cellular operators to provide a carrier-class Wi-Fi interworking service for subscribers. Using the new solution that integrates the industry-leading routing and identification capabilities of the Stoke Wi-Fi eXchange™ together with Aptilo’s award-winning Wi-Fi Offload solution, operators are able to deploy a turnkey, carrier-class Wi-Fi access system with minimal disruption.

“Wi-Fi offload can be a powerful revenue-generator, and can drive customer loyalty by delivering a seamless, automatic Wi-Fi experience for end-users. Aptilo and Stoke together provide an innovative way to overcome the barriers facing mobile operators wishing to include Wi-Fi in their service strategies,” said Torbjorn Ward, CEO, Aptilo Networks.

The Aptilo-Stoke Solution
Mobile operators seeking to offer Wi-Fi options to their subscribers need to ensure that their customers’ mobile experience is as effortless as possible, while opening the service to the broadest range of devices and offering many different ways to access the Wi-Fi network. Issues of user identification and authorization and the myriad access mechanisms in Wi-Fi need to be implemented with the minimum of complexity in the operator core, and offer a uniform user experience regardless of device type or access method.

The Aptilo Service Management Platform (SMP), through Web portal or automatic SIM- based authentication, can identify a subscriber and assign traffic policies according to highly specific customer or network attributes. The Aptilo SMP can also mediate charging functions for these subscribers so that the user experience and billing are similar to that of the cellular network.
The Stoke Wi-Fi eXchange can link tens of thousands of Wi-Fi access points from different manufacturers to the operator core network, and can identify traffic at a high level of granularity to allow selective routing of user session traffic. This level of control enables operators to deliver different service classes, provide mobile network services to Wi-Fi users, and balance core network element and Internet backhaul resources.
Ensuring the interworking of these two platforms has enabled operators in Asia, North America, and Europe to test highly integrated, differentiated offerings that allow customers to consume Wi-Fi data in a user-friendly, mobile-centric way.

“In today’s world, a subscriber’s ability to access a Wi-Fi network is not only defined by the availability of Wi-Fi, but also by the capabilities of the gateways that terminate and route traffic,” said John Carvalho, VP of Wireless Architecture at Stoke. “As the industry evolves, operators need new and different capabilities as they attempt to satisfy users’ unending thirst for data consumption.”

The Aptilo-Stoke Wi-Fi offload solution is available for trial today.
