Fontech enriches its WiFi Solution for Small Businesses by adding IgniteNet access points

  • Fontech includes IgniteNet access points in its WiFi Solution for Small Businesses bundle, allowing Fontech to take advantage of IgniteNet’s rich portfolio and strengthen its proposition in the small business vertical.

18 DECEMBER 2018. Madrid & Irvine. – Technology partners, Fon and IgniteNet, are collaborating in a unique agreement in which Fon, through its technology arm Fontech, offers IgniteNet customer-premises equipment (CPEs) as a fundamental product within the company’s Enterprise portfolio, namely as an integral part of the WiFi Solution for Small Businesses.

Fontech’s WiFi Solution for Small Businesses allows service providers to offer user-facing businesses the ability to provide guest WiFi services to customers by way of three products: the WiFi Service Management Platform (WSMP), a high-level management tool for service providers; the Fontech Merchant App used by business owners to manage the WiFi at their locations; and an access point kept on premise. This latter product is the IgniteNet Spark AC Wave2 Mini SP-W2M-AC1200, rebranded by Fon as the “Indoor Access Point”.

Our solution is specifically designed so that service providers can offer small businesses a way to provide secure, high quality guest WiFi to their clients, which is now even stronger thanks to IgniteNet’s technology”, said Santiago López Cano, Fontech’s Director of Sales and Delivery, about the agreement.

Ignitenet and Fon are working together to replicate that model to Fontech’s other existing solutions by taking advantage of IgniteNet’s rich equipment portfolio based on the latest 802.11ac Wave2 technology which make it possible to reach up to 2Gbps+ data-rates to cater dense and resource-demanding deployments. The current product lineup covers multiple vertical markets including SMBs, enterprise, hospitality, education, service providers, etc.
