Taxi Operators

Challenge

Taxi companies want to offer free Wi-Fi to it’s passengers but don’t want high data bills. LTE networks speeds allow large amounts of data to be consumed quickly. With unlimited use, data usage costs with overage charges can spiral out of control, but with too many restrictions, customers will be frustrated by a poor Wi-Fi experience.

Solution

The CloudFi Mobile solution provides a number of features to control data usage while still delivering an excellent customer Wi-Fi experience in the taxi. Policies can be set to restrict the bandwidth, amount and length of sessions a day and to prevent usage by selected users such as the drivers. Bandwidth intensive sites such as software downloads, cloud backup and video streaming can be blocked. Also, sites with security risks and pornography can be blocked.

Result: Great Customer Wi-Fi – No Overage Charges
