If you find yourself using Wi-Fi in one of the five major airports in Kenya anytime soon, plan on enjoying a pleasurable and seamless user experience.
These airports—Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi; Moi International Airport in Mombasa; Eldoret International Airport in Eldoret; Wilson Airport in Nairobi; and Kisumu International Airport—recently installed Elitecore’s 24online, a hotspot management solution for public Wi-Fi networks.
As Wi-Fi technology continues to evolve and mobile device ownership is escalating, we can expect adoption rates will continue to soar. As such, users expect to be able to surf the web whenever and wherever they want using the internet-connected device of their choice—with Wi-Fi connection as opposed to their dedicated 3G/4G connection to save on data costs. From libraries to shopping malls, college campuses to airports, the need for strong Wi-Fi in these public places is a necessity. With 24online, the Kenyan Airports Authority (KAA) aims to simplify and future-proof the management of its public Wi-Fi networks.
“24online [being] deployed at five of the largest airport networks in Africa … shows the capability and scalability of the product to manage a dynamic user base,” explains Samiksh Aggarwal, AVP, Sales- 24online for Elitecore. “This hotspot management solution’s unique features will enable large public Wi-Fi networks to offer hassle-free Internet access to their users, thus making it an ideal solution.”
The solution serves as a comprehensive internet access management tool. In addition to giving decision makers the ability to manage their networks, it also allows them to create their own Internet plans; bill for those plans; manage bandwidth; authenticate and manage users; and access extensive reporting features.
The demand for public Wi-Fi networks is already here, and that demand will certainly increase over the next few years. In order to ensure users have the most rewarding digital experiences, operators need to focus on delivering secure Internet experiences while at the same time figuring out how to monetize the product.
With 24online, the path to public Wi-Fi network management becomes a whole lot easier. The plug-and-play, cost-effective solution works for locations of all sizes; whether you’re the world’s largest hotel or the world’s smallest B&B. Click here to learn more.
