iPass Optimizes Open Mobile for the iPad

Gives Enterprises a Cost-Effective Alternative to 3G/4G on the iPad With Seamless and Secure Access to Over 700,000 Wi-Fi Venues Worldwide

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/15/12 -- iPass Inc., (NASDAQ: IPAS) the global Wi-Fi services leader, today announced a new version of iPass Open Mobile now optimized to take advantage of the higher resolution and user interface of the iPad. iPass Open Mobile for iOS delivers seamless and secure access to the iPass Mobile Network, the world's largest commercial Wi-Fi network with over 700,000 Wi-Fi venues globally.

According to the latest data from the iPass Mobile Workforce Report 34 percent of mobile workers have an iPad that they use for work, and 88 percent use Wi-Fi as their predominant means to connect. Considering that tablets consume an estimated five times more data than smartphones according to a March 2011 Mobile Future report, enterprises will increasingly need a cost-effective alternative to 3G and 4G for their iPad users. The iPad-optimized version of Open Mobile delivers this and more. Mobile employees can take advantage of:

  • At-a-glance dashboard -- A view of current connection status, historic data usage and previous connections, plus a quick link to the iPass Hotspot Finder.
  • iPass Hotspot Finder -- A convenient tool for locating (through search or geo-location) global destinations with available iPass Wi-Fi hotspots.
  • Wireless data usage meter -- Enables Open Mobile users to view their historical Wi-Fi and 3G data usage.

"Enterprise mobility is creating new opportunities for business and productivity but consumerization presents new challenges for IT departments," said Barbara Nelson, Chief Technology Officer at iPass. "iPass helps enterprises manage their mobile capabilities so they can simply and securely embrace devices such as the iPad that help provide significant productivity gains. Our new iPad-optimized version of Open Mobile will allow enterprises to affordably roam on the world's largest carrier-independent network without the threat of bill shock."
