Eircom Manages Data Offload With Aptilo

STOCKHOLM -- Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of mobile data offloading solutions, today announced that Ireland’s eircom Group, the largest telecommunications operator in Ireland, has bundled Wi-Fi services with all of their data plans using the Aptilo solutions for carrier-class Wi-Fi service management and mobile data offloading.

Being a pioneer among operators with its first Wi-Fi network deployed in 2002 - using the Aptilo service management solution – eircom broadband, eMobile and Meteor customers are now leveraging the network as an important customer acquisition and retention tool by providing seamless, secure offload of data from their 3G networks to Wi-Fi. For eircom broadband, eMobile and Meteor customers, the Aptilo mobile data offload solution means faster data speeds and exceptional ease-of-use.

For customers using laptop computers, Aptilo’s offload solution works hand-in-hand with the EasyConnect software client from Birdstep Technology which silently obtains login credentials from the Aptilo Credential Server via SMS. This enables an automated login process to the Wi-Fi network. The EasyConnect software is pre-installed on all eircom, eMobile and Meteor 3G USB modems.
