Telecom New Zealand to Deploy Prepaid Wi-Fi Hotspots Service
Posted on 25-Oct-2005 10:49 | Tags Filed under: News



In collaboration with HP, Aptilo Networks has entered into an agreement with Telecom New Zealand, to supply a system to enable the operator to introduce a prepaid payment model to access its network of wireless WiFi hotspots throughout New Zealand.

Telecom New Zealand currently has over 220 hotspots at hotels, cafés, libraries and conference centres throughout the North and South Islands. This number will rise to over 400 in the next twelve months.

“We are also now looking into providing the Telecom wireless hotspot service on the ferries and in the future onto planes and trains,” says Paul Stoddart, Head of Telecom WiFi. “Our aim is to provide ubiquitous coverage at venues which have a high public transit and or pause profile”.

This development will give TNZ a flexible platform for the introduction of new payment models in the future.

“Both business models and public use of the Internet are developing rapidly, so the infrastructure must be flexible enough to allow for future growth and adaptation,” says Jan Sjönell, responsible for the Asian market at Aptilo Networks. “The wireless broadband network based on WiFi and WiMax is steadily growing, and within a few years these will be integrated with today’s 3G networks. Aptilo’s solution handles today’s needs in administrating WiFi and WiMax networks, and is also capable of handling the forthcoming convergence.”
