LOS ANGELES, April 10, 2017—Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading DAS, small cell and Wi-Fi provider that serves consumers, carriers and advertisers worldwide, today announced that Boingo Broadband has been honored with three Cablefax Tech Awards for “Best Wireless/Wi-Fi Solution,” “Tech Team of the Year,” and “Rising Star.” A panel of prestigious judges recognized Boingo Broadband and its team of engineers for demonstrating excellence in Wi-Fi and IPTV network design and deployment among customers who serve in the military.
“Our annual Tech Awards spotlight the best of the best in cable innovation,” said Cablefax Publisher Michael Grebb. “This year, Boingo Broadband stood out for combining best-of-breed technologies to deliver a service that is fast, 100 percent portable and easy to use. We congratulate Boingo on its industry-leading achievement and commend all of our winners on a job well done.”
Unlike traditional cable services, Boingo Broadband Wi-Fi and IPTV products are portable and do not require an installation appointment. Customers simply sign up online and receive instant access to high-speed connectivity and entertainment. Boingo Broadband can move with subscribers from base-to-base and removes the inconvenience of cancelling and setting up service during a deployment. The products are available to the single men and women who serve in the U.S. Marines, Army and Air Force and live in the barracks.
“From live cable and premium network TV skinny bundles to blazing fast Wi-Fi for gaming and browsing, Boingo Broadband was engineered with custom features that suit the transient lifestyles of those who serve in the U.S. military. It represents one of our most innovative tech deployments to date,” said Derek Peterson, Ph.D., chief technology officer at Boingo. “We are incredibly proud to win prestigious awards that not only recognize our technology, but also our group of bright and hardworking engineers who are at the heart of our Broadband business.”
Boingo was honored at the Tech Awards alongside brands that included Comcast, Harmonic and Samsung. Kevin Liu, senior software engineer at Boingo, was acknowledged with the “Rising Star” award, which honors emerging leaders in the cable industry.
