Du to take next-gen Wi-Fi demo to Mobile World Congress.

Dubai-based telecoms provider, du has announced its participation in the Next-Generation Hotspot (NGH) and Passpoint/Hotspot 2.0 technology demonstration at GSMA's Mobile World Congress 2015 in Barcelona, Spain from 2 to 5 March.

The Wi-Fi network, provided by Cisco, will support

subscribers from more than 30 global operators attending MWC. The demo will be

supported by the Wireless Broadband Alliance (WBA) and GSMA, and will allow

du's attendees at MWC, with devices that support Passpoint/Hotspot 2.0, to

automatically roam within the Wi-Fi network using secure credentials.

"The UAE's vision for a smart future, and its commitment to

making this happen, has been widely commended," said Saleem AlBlooshi, executive

vice president, Network Development and Operations, du.

"We are pleased to participate in the NGH demo at Mobile

World Congress to enrich our contribution to the smart city with seamless Wi-Fi

experience. A seamless connectivity experience is central to the development of

a smart city and a knowledge-based economy, at the heart of which is

empowerment and increased productivity.

"Participation in such state-of-the-art global

forums will allow us to deliver a wireless experience to our customers that

will add more value to their communications, for an enhanced experience that

will drive the smart city vision closer to reality."
