GlobalReach Technology Connects HTNG Lisbon Delegates to Secure, Seamless Wi-Fi Service

HTNG Hotspot 2.0

New QR Code Improves the Guest Experience

LISBON, 22 OCTOBER 2018: Delegates attending the HTNG’s European Conference at the Ritz Carlton in Lisbon this week, have a better guest Wi-Fi experience, through an automatic connection to the event’s secure, next-generation Wi-Fi service, across the entire hotel, using GlobalReach Technology.

By visiting or using a newly-released QR Code, which delegates received in their welcome pack from HTNG last week, the secure Passpoint profile can be added to devices before arriving in Lisbon.

The one-time device provisioning tool will automatically connect their device, at any Passpoint hotspot at the conference, along with any next-generation hotspot around the world.

The solution ends the need for manual Wi-Fi logins and other obstacles to fast, seamless, secure connection.

The GlobalReach Passpoint online sign-up server (OSU) is a built-in feature of GlobalReach’s Wi-Fi management platform. The software easily creates Passpoint user profiles, to let wireless service providers and enterprises automatically connect their customers to any next-generation network.

GlobalReach Technology has been a leader in Passpoint authentication and provisioning since 2012. The company has been deeply involved in next-generation trials of Passpoint and the first large-scale deployments.

GlobalReach has previously been used as the de facto solution for Wireless Broadband Alliance Global Congress events.

It is also been used to support the WBA’s City Wi-Fi Roaming Project and the WBA, GSMA and Fira together with a large number of mobile operators and technology partners deployed it for the Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) Wi-Fi experience at Mobile World Congress 2017.

Since 2014, the service has also been live in San Francisco and San Jose, where is was the world?s first large-scale municipal Passpoint service, allowing millions of visitors and residents to automatically and securely roam between the two city networks.
