Dublin, Ireland - Feb. 5, 2013 - The AccuROAM™ platform from Accuris Networks was just placed on the shortlist for the 2013 Global Mobile Awards, with winners to be announced at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 26. As a company in the vanguard of next-generation Wi-Fi offload and roaming solutions, Accuris Networks is a finalist for "best mobile technology breakthrough." This coveted award recognizes industry innovators whose inventions not only enhance user experience but have longer-term potential to impact the mobile market.
Launched in early 2012, AccuROAM’s capabilities uniquely enable Wi-Fi offloading and Wi-Fi roaming together, doing so with SIM-based authentication that doesn't require cumbersome usernames and passwords. It enables any type of Wi-Fi access technology to work as a full extension of GSM or CDMA networks for billing, policy and authentication, not just for use with data services but for voice and messaging also.
"Our objective with AccuROAM wasn't just to make mobile networks more effective from a user perspective by linking Wi-Fi and 3G/4G networks seamlessly," said Aidan Dillon, CTO at Accuris Networks. "We wanted to reduce infrastructure costs and thus help spur mobile usage and business opportunities."
Accuris Networks is currently working with the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA)’s Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) trials aimed to simplify Wi-Fi hotspot access. Another important achievement of AccuROAM is how effortlessly it helps reduce data congestion on mobile broadband networks giving subscribers significantly higher bandwidth when connected on Wi-Fi. They experience faster, better-quality, secure connections even while on the move, being able to automatically connect to partner Wi-Fi networks both in country and when travelling abroad. For currently deployed Wi-Fi networks AccuROAM incorporates mobile software for Apple, Android, Blackberry and Windows devices.
The AccuROAM platform has already proven itself in numerous trials and is now commercially deployed by some leading mobile operators worldwide such as AT&T. AccuROAM can scale to millions of active subscribers and is an ideal solution for operators experiencing high network demand who understand how efficiently integrating Wi-Fi with their existing network can solve their usage and cost problems.
