Single Digits’ PlatformONETM technology enable customers and partners to remain seamlessly and securely connected as they move between a growing array of managed, stove-piped wireless networks, access technologies and IoT enabled devices – ultimately delivering on the promise of the Single Digits ‘Connected Life ExperienceTM (CLE)’.
At Single Digits, we’ve been rallying behind Passpoint® enabled technology for years. With our ConnectionAssist solution, we provide a simple, secure, and connected authentication experience to anyone who steps foot onto a property.
How does it work?
The ConnectionAssist first-time provisioning process puts a Passpoint® credential (profile) on the user’s device. Whenever that device sees that network again, it automatically provides those credentials for authentication. The result—a seamless onboarding experience that your Wi-Fi users now expect.
While it is possible to add configuration files to iOS devices downloaded from a web service via Safari, it’s a very complicated process. The user must complete a series of steps to access the network and leave the application to complete the setup.
The video below walks you through an application for iOS that demonstrates in-app network configuration for WPA2-PSK, EAP-TTLS, and Passpoint® networks and automatic connection to these networks.
The video also illustrates the ability to remove the configuration from within the application, therefore revoking network access. Removing the application also revokes network access since the settings are associated with the application, not the system.
When the user is in range of a supported network, they can configure the network and connect with a single click. No need to transfer to a web browser or find a downloaded profile in settings. Just one click.
The iOS Hotspot Helper feature can further extend this functionality so that the app can claim the networks the policy has configured, and the configuration only starts when the user visits the device network settings app.
