Galgus has achieved the CERTIFIED Passpoint seal from the Wi-Fi Alliance, a global organization that promotes Wi-Fi technology and certifies all products related to it. In fact, it is the owner of the Wi-Fi trademark and where the big players in the industry are located.
This certification granted to the Sevillian company recognizes the work carried out for years designing, developing and deploying cutting-edge technology for Wi-Fi networks in the most difficult environments. “Galgus Wi-Fi networks provide quality Internet access while collecting interesting contextual information for the owner of the infrastructure, also facilitating the life of network administrators through its Cloud Manager platform,” the company indicates in the statement sent.
Galgus technology, already compatible with Passpoint, is deployed in a multitude of environments, from schools and shopping centers, to train stations, through airplanes, luxury hotels, convention centers or football stadiums.
Of particular interest are the more than 50 towns, cities and rural areas that already have Andalusian technology networks throughout the Spanish geography. In this way, quality Internet access (robust, fast and secure) is given to an aggregate population of more than 1 million people.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Passpoint provides a series of benefits for network users, such as not having to register each time they want to access it from a cafeteria, shop, hotel, airport, stadium, etc. All this by reinforcing the security of said network and automatically applying the necessary policies according to credentials.
For administrators, Passpoint offers new tools to extract more value from network data, with which to open new business opportunities. They will also be able to monetize their Wi-Fi infrastructure thanks to the offloading of data from the 3G / 4G / 5G mobile telephone network, reaching profitable agreements with the operators.
This achievement joins others already achieved by Galgus recently, such as being chosen by Facebook to boost Internet connectivity through the unbundling of software and hardware, or the implementation of projects together with its partners to reduce the digital divide in the rural areas of Africa, Latin America and southern Europe.
