The amazing information which Wi-Fi networks can provide


[by myBroadBand, link to Original Article]

VAST Networks has developed technology which provides shopping centres, restaurants and retailers with accurate data about their customers and their habits.

VAST is an open-access Wi-Fi network infrastructure provider which delivers carrier-grade Wi-Fi in South Africa. The company is well-known for providing Wi-Fi access in airports, shopping centres, restaurants and retail stores.

However, the most valuable service provided to its business clients is not Wi-Fi access. Instead, it is extensive data about these business’ customers.

VAST has built a platform, called Loxion, which provides its Wi-Fi customers with a visualised and actionable data set that can be used to improve operations.
