Telia Sweden has utilized Aptilo Networks for enabling Wi-Fi services during Almedalen, a political forum.
Telia Sweden has created temporary Wi-Fi hotspots to offer free Wi-Fi service to all visitors during June 28-July 5, 2015. It is the fifth time Telia is providing Wi-Fi services, enabled by the Aptilo platform, for this annual gathering.
Aptilo and Telia Sweden are building pop-up Wi-Fi hotspots in and around the city of Visby for the 30,000 participants forecasted to attend this year. Aptilo has rebranded the login portal with an Almedalen-specific theme.
The Aptilo Service Management Platform (SMP) uses SIM Authentication that enables seamless login to the Telia WIFI service for Telia subscribers who will be welcomed with a special Almedalen-themed SMS to brand the event. Other users click on the portal to connect to the Telia WIFI service.
“Telia-provided network of Wi-Fi hotspots has been growing to meet the increasing capacity needs during Almedalen Week,” said Paul Mikkelsen, CEO of Aptilo Networks.
