ABOUT US

We’re the leaders in seamless Passpoint (Hotspot 2.0) authentication and specialists in secure identity and access management.

We deliver high performance Wi-Fi software, services and analytics to help global operators, venues and organisations to connect millions of people, customers and devices safely and automatically to Wi-Fi.

Our team includes the brightest and best in carrier-grade Wi-Fi connectivity. We are the architects, authors and developers of today’s industry standards.

Our solutions and services are the result of many years of development and industry expertise, our proprietary software platform and unmatched experience of designing and deploying high performance Wi-Fi services.

Our Wi-Fi management platform is prized by carriers around the world for its stability, scalability and ability to support a broad spectrum of authentication methods centrally and securely from our cloud-based facilities, with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Our technology has proven scale, serving billions of authentications a year and supports services for multiple national operators who in turn deploy large-scale Wi-Fi services including Wi-Fi on the River Thames, award-winning public Wi-Fi for the London Underground, for train companies including Avanti West Coast and C2C, for shopping centres, retail banks, major food and beverage chains, airports, buses, taxis and more.

We’ve also deployed services in municipal environments to support the public and small business in Leeds, Bradford, Hull, Birmingham, Cambridge and Northampton city centres.

GlobalReach is at the forefront of the Passpoint standard. We have been working with the Wireless Broadband Alliance for a number of years to define and deploy a number of industry firsts including secure and seamless public Wi-Fi connectivity in San Francisco and San Jose, London, Liverpool, the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and at the WBA’s own Wi-Fi Global Congress.

International operators and city networks including LinkNYC in New York City, Newark and Philadelphia, central London and Selangor State, Malaysia trust GlobalReach to enable automatic secure Passpoint onboarding, Wi-Fi roaming and cellular offload.

We are a Board member of the Wireless Broadband Alliance, and our senior team has co-written industry whitepapers and contributed to the development of Wi-Fi captive portal best practice, and industry standards for Passpoint Wi-Fi and OpenRoaming.

We are also a Board member of the Seamless Air Alliance, and a key contributor to the development of automatic, secure authentication standards for in-flight Wi-Fi.

GlobalReach is certified by the BSI (British Standards Institute) to operate an Information Security Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO/IEC 27001:2013.

Our offices are in London, Los Angeles and Singapore, and we support customers in North America, Europe and Asia.
