WiFi traffic on smartphones and tablets is booming causing a new industry segment to surge – mobile data offloading. At CTIA Super Mobility Week 2014, YBLTV had the pleasure to chat with the leading provider of mobile data offloading solutions, Aptilo Networks about this exciting segment. Aptilo Networks, VP Marketing, Johan Terve spoke with us about the increased interest for carrier class WiFi services, the demands that will be placed on cellular data networks over the next five years and how mobile network operators can best reduce churn and make subscribers more sticky.
“MNO’s need to deploy wi-fi where users are. We’re talking about venues here. We have a big portion, maybe 20% in the venues side of our business,” said Johan Terve, Aptilo’s Vice President of Marketing.

“We think we have the capability to really bridge carrier wi-fi with venue wi-fi,” – Johan Terve, VP Marketing, Aptilo Networks
There are many aspects that need to be addressed by MNO’s to benefit from WiFi offloading. Aptilo Networks says that 2014 is the year of 3CPP WiFi.
The Stockholm-headquartered company has experienced tremendous growth of its services in South America and Africa. Recently, it enabled Wi-Fi offloading for the World Cup.
