STOCKHOLM -- Anticipating a surge of user activity surrounding 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, three operators in Brazil are working with Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of mobile data offloading solutions, to enable Wi-Fi offloading and carrier Wi-Fi throughout the country and in Maracanã Stadium – the venue for the World Cup Final -- for the millions of guests expected to attend this global sporting event.

TIM Brasil and Oi SA (NYSE: OIBR), two of the largest mobile operators in Brazil, are using the Aptilo Service Management Platform (SMP) to provide a carrier Wi-Fi service with mobile data offloading. Aptilo is also enabling carrier Wi-Fi services for Linktel, which operates the largest independent network of hotspots in Brazil.

“Large-scale sporting events represent a significant opportunity for carriers to generate revenue and increase branding with Wi-Fi offloading,” said Jonas Jacobsson, VP Sales Americas, Aptilo Networks. “Brazil will be host to some of the most exciting, highly anticipated sporting events, and Aptilo will be working with operators to leverage these opportunities, manage data traffic and ensure a great Wi-Fi user experience.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
