The Friendly WiFi standard is a UK Government initiative to drive online safety in public places, protecting users and ensuring the safety of children when using public WiFi. Not only do Friendly WiFi work with many brands and venues, they also work closely with industry leaders in technology for the WiFi sector. This is vital to drive online safety, by engaging with those who provide the necessary technology to ensure public WiFi networks are achieving safe operating standards.

Friendly WiFi are thrilled to announce Robustel as a new addition to the growing list of Approved Partners, ahead of their official product launch in June. Robustel are one of the world’s leading 4/5G router manufacturers who have developed new software, delivered via a cloud-based control platform. Already they have an impressive family of best-in-class partners who are integrating the Robustel products in the next-generation of passenger WiFi systems.

Robustel are passionate about making passenger WiFi accessible for all and deliver quality solutions with partners, driving cost efficiencies. Online safety has been at the heart of their development, working with partner Friendly WiFi to help them integrate an innovate filtering solution to provide a full service to transport companies.

Bev Smith, Director at Friendly WiFi welcome Robustel as a partner, “Robustel from our first engagement, showed passion for technology and solutions, whilst ensuring safety to provide a full end to end passenger WiFi solution. I applaud their dedication to this and their drive to provide a fully approved Friendly WiFi service to protect users. To have them as a partner ahead of their launch is a privilege, and to work with a company who want to drive top end solutions whilst delivering costs savings is refreshing. I am really looking forward to developing our relationship.”

David Evans from Robustel added, “Since we launched our first 5G router two years ago, there has been growing interest in using it as a Universal 5G router providing backhaul for onboard services such as CCTV, driver behaviour and ticketing. By providing a comprehensive Passenger Wifi service from the same single box, Operators can realise cost reductions and service improvements by upgrading to this all in one solution.

We hope our solution can get Operators closer to the single 4G/5G gateway utopia they have long desired, along with being able to support our customers become Friendly WiFi certified and show they provide a safe WiFi experience”
