GlobalReach Technology First to Integrate their Wi-Fi Solution with the New “Android M” Operating System from Google.

World’s First Developer to Enable Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 over Google’s New OS with its OSU (Online Sign-Up) Solution.

LONDON – 17 June, 2015 – GlobalReach Technology (www.globalreachtech.com), a leading developer of advanced, carrier class Wi-Fi software, announced today that it has integrated Google's Android 'M' operating system to its Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 Online Sign-Up server allowing seamless and secure Wi-Fi access.

Android M with GlobalReach’s HotSpot 2.0 technology eliminates the need for cumbersome user logins, redirects to captive portal pages, and other obstacles to seamless Wi-Fi connectivity. Android users will now be able to easily create their Passpoint™ profiles and connect “automatically” to HotSpot 2.0 networks.

GlobalReach had previously integrated HotSpot 2.0 with Apple’s iOS, so today’s announcement means that the company’s software is now able to automatically provision over 90% of all mobile devices worldwide.

Nigel Wesley, CEO of GlobalReach, explained the importance of this development: “We are proud to be the first company in the world to have integrated fully with Android M to allow Google to support HotSpot 2.0. The fact that we are first to market with this solution is a not just a testament to the skill of our respective development teams, but also reflective of the broader strategic relationship that we share with Google in general.” He added, “We feel that this joint development effort will result in a real game-changer for the mobile network operators, and we look forward to working with carriers across the world to implement Android M.”
