BTC launches Wi-Fi network with Aptilo support

8 Dec 2010

The Bahamas Telecommunications Company (BTC) has announced the launch of commercial wireless services via a Wi-Fi mesh network enabled by Aptilo Networks; system integration was provided by Alcatel-Lucent. The new service features advanced billing and credit card processing functionality enabled by First Atlantic Commerce, a leading multi-currency, online payment gateway and fraud risk solutions provider, to provide guests of BTC’s customers – which include major tourist destinations such as Atlantis, Paradise Island – a Wi-Fi user experience that is tailored to the needs of the customer (or venue). ‘The ability to offer our customers a flexible wireless solution that’s scalable, cost-effective and fast to deploy is critical in today’s economic climate when time-to-revenue is key,’ said Howard Mason, chief information officer at BTC. ‘Alcatel-Lucent’s complete solution enables seamless, simplified installations. Combined with Aptilo’s platform which fast-tracks deployments and the advanced e-commerce solutions from First Atlantic Commerce, this was the right choice for BTC.’ BTC is in the process of rolling out a comprehensive wireless network that includes Wi-Fi, WiMAX and LTE.
