What is a wifi service monetization platform?

Monetizing WiFi is a challenge for service providers, with fewer customers willing to pay for WiFi services today. A modern WiFi service monetization platform (WiFi SMP) enables service providers to create sponsored services in addition to paid plans. Customers can access the operator’s WiFi hotspot network in public places for free, after watching a video advertisement, completing a survey, logging in using their social credentials, and more, and the operator generates revenue without having to directly charge customers.

How can telcos monetize wifi?

To monetize WiFi today, service providers need to leverage more sophisticated monetization opportunities than only paid journeys and must incorporate analytics, redeemable vouchers, contextual and targeted advertising, personalized offerings, location-based offers, and more. A WiFi service management platform enables them to create captive portals to directly interact with customers, create multiple custom offers, segment and target customers, forge partnerships, and custom-make multiple WiFi captive portals for themselves as well as affiliates.
