We are working with select partners to finalize the
platform interfaces and pricing.

Anyfi.net is a software extension for existing Wi-Fi access points. This software extension
makes your favourite Wi-Fi networks available from the closest access point, wherever you happen to be. It's like your
networks follow you around, without you having to do anything.
Well, your own of course. :) With Anyfi.net there is no "second SSID with an open network" — it's much smarter than that.
we simply make your own favourite Wi-Fi network magically appear, where and when you need it.
There is no app. :)
We use the standard client software that is already installed in every Wi-Fi device.
Since each device will find exactly the network it is looking for it will
automatically connect and authenticate using the standard WPA security mechanism.
If you just want to try it out you can
download firmware images for a number of popular off the shelf Wi-Fi routers.
But to give it meaningful reach you will have to help us convince equipment vendors
and Internet service providers to
integrate Anyfi.net software in Wi-Fi routers and residential gateways.
Absolutely not! Each user can only access their own Wi-Fi network (but they can do so remotely).
When a visitor connects through your access point their traffic never touches your LAN. Instead it
it is sent out through your broadband connection wrapped up in a
Wi-Fi over IP tunnel. In fact, you can be absolutely sure that a visitor's traffic can
never accidentally leak into your LAN (even if there is a defect in our software) simply because it is theoretically
the visitor's traffic is encrypted and the key needed to decrypt it is not even available in your access point.
Remote access to your Wi-Fi network through Anyfi.net is
protected with the same WPA security mechanism and system software that is normally used to prevent unauthorized access over the air.
On top of this standards-based security Anyfi.net adds some
hardening against Internet-based brute force attacks.
will only use the bandwidth you don't need.
Anyfi.net software constantly measures and prioritizes both bandwidth and
Whenever there is a risk that the primary function of
the access point (e.g. to provide home Wi-Fi to a residential subscriber) may be impacted by
a visiting user the software will automatically throttle the visitor to prevent impact.
We call it spectrum aware traffic prioritization.
It's very important especially when the visitor has a poor radio link and may otherwise
consume a lot of spectrum.
Some Internet service providers implement usage-based pricing. At this time we do not recommend self-installing
Anyfi.net enabled Wi-Fi equipment with such broadband connections.
Certainly not. Anyfi.net technology can be used to provide secure remote access to any Wi-Fi network, using
any standard Wi-Fi security mechanism. It works fine with WPA/WPA2 Entreprise (including EAP-SIM/AKA/AKA').
However, in order to implement more advanced services based on WPA/WPA2 Enterprise you will need to use the
monetization and exchange platform or a managed solution
from Anyfi Networks AB.
The Hotspot 2.0/Passpoint initiative from the Wi-Fi Alliance as well as the
Next Generation Hotspot (NGH) initiative from the Wireless Broadband Alliance
are based on the newly ratified IEEE 802.11u standard.
We don't see Anyfi.net as better or worse than IEEE 802.11u, but rather as a
complementary technology. Anyfi.net supports distribution of IEEE 802.11u networks
with WPA2 Enterprise and EAP-based authentication. Combining the technologies
can have important benefits in some deployment scenarios. For example, Anyfi.net
technology can ensure
end-to-end encryption by extending the Passpoint security mechanism across the backhaul.
This is key to using existing residential gateways for secure mobile Wi-Fi offload.
There is however some overlap between the technologies when it comes to network selection
and cross-operator roaming. The differences and tradeoffs are in user experience,
branding and security. Most imporant is perhaps the security implications of a roaming relationship:
with IEEE 802.11u an operator must expose their RADIUS interface and the plain-text communication of
their subscribers to all roaming partners. With Anyfi.net this is not necessary;
each roaming partner is fully in control of their own security.
Anyfi.net is very different from FON: it's a
white label Wi-Fi virtualization technology.
It doesn't come with a pre-defined business model or user experience.
Anyfi.net can however be used to build solutions that resemble FON.
In that case the differences are more clear: solutions based on Anyfi.net usually offer a
ZERO sign-on user experience with
end-to-end WPA security, without requiring any software be installed
on the device. FON is usually insecure and requires manual sign-in, or device side software.
If you want to go it alone you can set up a proof of concept in your lab with using
firmware images for a number of popular Wi-Fi routers.
