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 Hotspot 2.0 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 2.0 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 Odyssys Hotspot 2.0 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 Hotspot 2.0 authentication and provisioning since 2012. The company have been deeply involved in next generation trials of Hotspot 2.0 and the first large-scale deployments.

GlobalReach Odyssys 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™ Hotspot 2.0 service, allowing millions of visitors and residents to automatically and securely roam between the two city networks.
