Comfone has announced that, together with Spotigo, it has successfully terminated WISPr compatibility testing for Spotigo's Wi-Fi SmartClient on WeRoam's aggregated public hotspot network.
Tests were performed at Comfone's Wi-Fi test laboratories in Bern Switzerland by Spotigo's technical staff in close collaboration with Comfone's specialists for public Wi-Fi roaming. As a result of these tests, Spotigo was able to extend the WISPr interoperability of its software to the WeRoam network and thus simplifying the end-user experience when connecting to foreign access points. All tests could be carried out in a very efficient manner, thanks to the high concentration of hotspots from dozens of WISP's from around the world in one physical location at Comfone's premises.
"It was our intention from the beginning to build up and open our test hotspot facility to third party suppliers and software developers" says Toni Stadelmann, Vice Chairman of Comfone, "thus we are very satisfied to have been able to support Spotigo improving their software. Eventually a uniform login experience at hotspots around the world is beneficial to all involved business partners."
"Spotigo is happy to announce that our market leading WISPr SmartClient is now also supporting the WeRoam network, an important aggregator for public hotspots. Our software makes it easier for network operators to bind and acquire Wi-Fi users by making Wi-Fi usage as simple and convenient as possible. We are convinced that simplifying the connection process for the end-user will increase the use of public hotspots." says Daniel Pruemers, Managing Director of Spotigo.
