GlobalReach Technology first to offer Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 Online Signup Service.

SaaS seamless and secure WiFi roaming and offloading.

LONDON – 17 November, 2014 – GlobalReach Technology, a leader in Wi-Fi software, announced that it is the first to provide a live Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 Certificated Online Signup service using its Odyssys® cloud software for enterprise and communication service providers.

Wi-Fi users simply download the Odyssys Passpoint™ Credential to their device to connect securely to any participating Wi-Fi network. Once in range of the Wi-Fi network, the device automatically and securely joins the Wi-Fi Passpoint™ Hotspot 2.0 service whenever the user enters the service area, enabling seamless secure roaming between Wi-Fi networks.

Hotspot 2.0 Passpoint™ is typically used by communication service providers to increase its network coverage to its customers using Wi-Fi whilst providing the same security and seamless connectivity associated with mobile networks.

Odyssys can extend the technology to enterprises for both public and private uses to provide the same seamless secure Wi-Fi service to its staff and/or customers. This provides many benefits for ease of connecting to the network and providing security for work use or online shopping/banking.

Commenting, Nigel Wesley, GlobalReach Technology CEO said: “This is another step in the provision of great, secure and seamless Wi-Fi not only for service providers but for all forms of Wi-Fi access. We’ve built on Passpoint™ standards and are proud to be the first to offer this software as a service to the global Wi-Fi community.”
