Sun Global Broadband Partners with GlobalReach Technology to Deliver Secure, Seamless Wi-Fi in Waikiki and Honolulu

Wireless Global Congress, Atlanta, May 21, 2019 - Super long-range Wi-Fi provider Sun Global Broadband (SGB) has partnered with leading carrier-grade wireless solutions and services provider GlobalReach Technology to deliver secure, seamless Hotspot 2.0 Wi-Fi roaming services on Oahu. This allows SGB partners to experience certified, seamless sign-on using industry standard Passpoint services.

The GlobalReach Technology Wi-Fi inter-connect hub will allow mobile users to use Wi-Fi roaming to access data, video, text and voice capabilities in Waikiki and Honolulu. Hotspot 2.0 provides easy-to-use services at indoor and outdoor locations from Diamond Head to Ala Moana and Ward Village. It will include long-range fixed Wi-Fi with mobility of up to 40 miles per hour, as well as LoRaWan™ for Smart City. The extension of this network to other tourist locations and the Honolulu airport is being implemented this year.

"GlobalReach's international operations and leadership in Wi-Fi roaming and Hotspot 2.0 allow us to greatly expand indoor and outdoor connectivity options for the hotel and hospitality industry, Hawaii's residents and visitors," said Edward Sun, founder and CEO of Sun Global. "Oahu mobile users can now reduce high cellular network charges and complexity with complementary internet app services such as secure fixed long-range Wi-Fi calling."

"Our Wi-Fi roaming platform supports some of the world's largest and most complex services, making data and voice services affordable for international mobile subscribers," said Mark Carter, chief product officer at GlobalReach Technology. "We are excited to use our hub to improve the mobile and wireless experience for Sun Global Broadband's operators and customers. It also expands our services to another major hospitality market."
