Boingo Congratulates Infonet on the Launch of its Mobilexpress Remote Access Service
SANTA MONICA, Cali – April 8th, 2004 –
Boingo Wireless™ today congratulates Infonet (NYSE:IN) on the launch of its MobileXpress™ Professional global remote access service, which features integration of client software and Wi-Fi hotspot network access from Boingo™ Platform Services.
With MobileXpress Professional, Infonet clients now have remote access in more than 110 countries, including secure Internet access to more than 2,300 Wi-Fi hotspots in 17 countries today, increasing to more than 10,000 later this year.
“We are excited to see the launch of Infonet’s MobileXpress service because for many global companies, Wi-Fi access is off limits due to security or policy management concerns,” said Dave Hagan, Boingo president and COO. “Infonet adds these components, and opens up the benefits of Wi-Fi for the corporate road warrior. We look forward to working closely with Infonet to make this new service successful.”
Infonet is an ideal partner for Boingo Platform Services because it leverages the Boingo Roaming System and award-winning client access software as part of its complete enterprise remote access capabilities, including unified billing and end user identification, enterprise-class security and log in functionality, as well as policy management capabilities.
