Stockholm-based Aptilo Networks, which produces systems to manage mobile data services for 3G, Long Term Evolution (LTE), WiMAX, Wi-Fi and fixed broadband networks, is reportedly working with three Brazilian operators to facilitate Wi-Fi mobile data offloading and carrier Wi-Fi services across the country. Mobile network operators TIM Brasil and Oi SA are said to be using the Aptilo Service Management Platform (SMP) to provide a carrier Wi-Fi service with mobile data offloading, while Linktel – which operates the largest independent network of hotspots in Brazil – is also using Aptilo is for carrier Wi-Fi services. Commenting on the tie-ups, Aptilo vice president of sales for Latin America, Jonas Jacobsson, said: ‘Large-scale sporting events represent a significant opportunity for carriers to generate revenue and increase branding with Wi-Fi offloading … 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.’
