New, Managed Services & Community Wi-Fi Solution Launches for North American Service Providers as CCI Systems Chooses GlobalReach Technology.

11 April 2016 - CCI Systems, a start-to-finish communications network solutions provider, today announces that it has confirmed GlobalReach Technology, the purpose-built Wi-Fi AAA and captive portal platform, as its managed services and community Wi-Fi partner for North American service providers.

The agreement delivers end-to-end managed and community Wi-Fi expertise, through dedicated wireless professional services and the award-winning AAA platform. It is intended to create higher returns for service providers’ network investments.

Where CCI Systems provides design, installation, configuration and operational support, GlobalReach will deliver captive portal, AAA and Hotspot 2.0 OSU solutions through its single, scalable platform.

“The partnership between CCI and GlobalReach creates a true end-to-end Wi-Fi solution,” said CCI CTO, Matt Reath. “We’ll deliver seamless authentication, Wi-Fi offload, monetization opportunities and analytics and intelligence to make the best business decisions. We are enabling the next generation of mobile communications throughout North America.”

Mark Williamson, CEO, GlobalReach Technology said: “We’re proud to have won our stripes in North America with successful deployments in California and New York City. Our technology is distinct in creating and managing multiple, converged services at scale. Partnering with CCI, we’re delighted to take such a strong proposition to North American service providers.”

With over 60 years experience, CCI provides ‘across the network’ design, construction, integration and support solutions to the cable, telephone and hospitality industries. Its Wi-Fi engineers hold wireless specializations including Cisco’s CCNA wireless certification and was recently awarded the Cisco Architectural Excellence US: SP Architectures award in recognition for its service provider innovation.

CCI deploys networks at scale. Its recent deployment for a small South Dakota telco at the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, used Cisco Universal Wi-Fi technologies to connect hundreds of thousands of attendees at entertainment venues, restaurants, campgrounds and public areas.

Founded in the UK in 2009, GlobalReach is an award-winning Wi-Fi platform built on proprietary software. Used to create, configure and manage any Wi-Fi and AAA solution, its technology is used by international wireless service providers. GlobalReach delivers billions of authentications for customers including BT, Level 3, Virgin Media and Vodafone.

The company has a solid track record of wireless leadership. It was first to deliver large-scale municipal Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 deployment connecting San Francisco and San Jose Public Wi-Fi; first to deliver an advanced robust public Wi-Fi for the London Underground; and the first and only online signup server for all major operating systems & Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 devices.

Already an international business with offices in four countries including the USA, the partnership consolidates GlobalReach’s North American operations.
