New Roaming Platform offers seamless, secure access to carrier grade Wi-Fi
DUBLIN, October 29, 2018 (Newswire.com) – Offering wholesale services to over 220 countries and territories, Orange International Carriers is one of the world’s leading global providers of security, data, mobile and voice services through an ongoing partnership with Accuris Networks, a leading Inter-Standard, Wi-Fi and IoT technology provider, Orange International Carriers has now added home routed Wi-Fi data roaming to the substantial list of innovative services available on the IPX backbone.
As members of the Wireless Broadband Alliance, Orange International Carriers and Accuris Networks recognise the challenge of combining new technologies to serve the growing demands of a data-hungry diverse customer base. The continued growth and adoption of Passpoint technology by network providers and device manufacturers has created an ecosystem that facilitates the use of Wi-Fi by Mobile Network Operators to offer an improved data service to subscribers. Orange International Carriers has worked with Accuris Networks to create an innovative Wi-Fi Roaming hub that offers carrier-grade Wi-Fi interconnect in a business-as-usual manner, including seamless SIM-based access, home routed data and standard clearing and settlement.
Pierre-Louis de Guillebon, CEO, International Carriers, Orange says – “The decision to partner with Accuris Networks for this project was based on the company’s ability to deliver secure, seamless access session management and billing support on Carrier Wi-Fi networks. The continuing demand for low-cost data when roaming is driving the utilisation of Wi-Fi technology, and together with Accuris, Orange International Carriers can provide a global Wi-Fi footprint as a carrier-grade service with managed access, session control, core network integration and flexible billing models, including WRIX based clearing and settlement.”
“Orange International Carriers has always been a provider of choice for fixed, mobile and broadband services. Their continued investment in Wi-Fi as a global roaming service is a testament to the role Wi-Fi will play in delivering mobile services into the future,” said Larry Quinn, Chairperson and Chief Executive Officer at Accuris. “The vision Orange International Carrier has for the Wi-Fi roaming hub service is perfectly aligned with the carrier-grade platform Accuris Networks is providing and we look forward to working closely with them.”

- Accuris eAAA server to support diverse authentication, security, and identity management protocols;
- Accuris eAnalytics and Billing, a big-data collection, analysis and presentation module; Highly flexible billing mobile for automatic summary reports and invoicing.
