About us

Founded in the UK in 2009, Global Reach Technology is an award-winning captive portal, cloud-RADIUS / AAA wireless platform.

Built on proprietary technology Global Reach is used by leading wireless service providers and their customers to create, monetize and manage multiple, complex wireless services for any type of deployment – consumer to large enterprise – in any industry.

Working with Cisco, Aruba, Google, BT and Virgin Media, our platform supports billions of authentications and concurrent users, using hundreds of devices and networks. Only Global Reach supports the largest number of wireless operating systems and devices, and provides secure connection and roaming using the industry’s top standards.

We have been awarded by technology publications and wireless industry organizations for our work, and have grown into an international cloud software business with offices in four countries, including a professional services division supporting Global Reach deployments.
