Trustive, a leading worldwide mobile internet access provider and the No1 WiFi access provider in Europe, is very pleased to announce an extension to its partnership with Aicent, a leading provider of data network services and solutions for global mobile operators.
In July 2010, Trustive and Aicent announced a bilateral partnership that gave Trustive customers access to a number of important WiFi networks, including China Telecom, Korea Telecom and Narita International Airport (Japan). Trustive and Aicent are now pleased to be able to confirm the extension of this partnership, which now also allows China Telecom customers to roam on Trustive’s international WiFi network, using either their web browsers or, on specific networks, China Telecom’s connection client.
Trustive offers travellers comprehensive WiFi coverage by combining the hotspot locations of more than 80+ leading WiFi operators into one unified, global network of 300,000+ premium WiFi hotspots in 130 countries. Trustive also works with operators wanting to create or extend an existing international portfolio by providing their customers with seamless, international WiFi access to Trustive’s premium network. Access can be achieved through a range of solutions, from semi-branded to fully white label services that can be integrated into an operator’s existing billing and CRM system, depending on each operator’s individual requirements.
Christian VanGhelder, Trustive’s managing director, welcomes China Telecom customers onto this premium WiFi network: “With 300,000 premium WiFi hotspots, including 70,000 hotels, 50,000 bars & restaurants, 1000 airports and thousands of other key locations all spread across Asia, South America, Europe and beyond, we are confident that China Telecom’s customers will soon be enjoying quick and easy WiFi access with Trustive, whatever their destination.”
Aicent is a leading provider of mobile data solutions and interworking solutions for over 150 mobile operator customers globally and WiFi roaming is a very important component of Aicent’s mobile solution set. MK Chang, Aicent’s VP Product Marketing commented that “WiFi has become a key network access vehicle for business travellers and an important addition to 3G, be it for fast access while roaming or simply as a 3G offload mechanism. So, having access to wide coverage is imperative.”
Trustive gives travellers comprehensive WiFi coverage by combining the hotspot locations of more than 70+ leading WiFi operators into one unified, global network of 220,000+ WiFi hotspots in 130 countries and allowing Trustive customers access to these locations through a single click (single username and password plus a range of WiFi software for both computers and smartphones that automate the log in process).
