i Pass Inc. announced an agreement with T-Mobile UK to integrate its 3G data network into the iPass services platform. The agreement marks a significant enterprise-focused distribution agreement for T-Mobile UK and will give iPass customers’ access to T-Mobile’s existing UMTS network as well as HSDPA, the latest broadband data standard for cellular networks. T-Mobile is the first UK operator to deliver HSDPA capability across its entire 3G network, supporting data rates of up to 1.8 megabits-per-second.

Mobile broadband data connectivity

The agreement helps iPass customers unify the management of mobile broadband data connectivity in North America, Asia and Europe. iPass already offers nationwide mobile data service in the USA, China, Japan and Singapore as well as access to over 75,000 Wi-Fi hotspots and Ethernet-enabled hotels. iPass plans to continue broadening its international 3G and Wi-Fi coverage over the course of 2007.

 

T-Mobile & iPass agreement

"The agreement gives iPass a tremendous opportunity to meet the mobility needs of enterprise customers" commented Michael Wilkens, EVP of Wholesale and Multinational Partnerships for T-Mobile International. "The results from our existing Wi-Fi partnership with iPass clearly demonstrate their ability to address the complex needs of the business market. Adding our world-class 3G capabilities is a natural progression for us to expand the connectivity options that iPass can deliver to its global customer base." iPass customers around the world will get greater flexibility and more choices for connecting their users in the UK. This mobile data coverage will complement the more than 10,000 Wi-Fi hotspots and Ethernet-enabled hotels iPass already offers in the UK.

 

iPass - T-Mobile 3G data network

"T-Mobile is at the forefront of 3G development and is a mobile data leader in the UK with one of the most robust and extensive networks in the world," said Stephen Dane, Director, UK and Ireland, iPass. "The T-Mobile 3G network will prove a valuable addition to the iPass service, closing gaps in broadband connectivity for places such as trains, customer sites or the back of a taxi."

 

iPass 3G data network service - Availability

The 3G service will be available in Q2 2007 once iPass has completed its Enterprise Ready certification process and the network has been integrated into the iPass service platform. Users will simply connect through the iPass universal client; the service will auto-detect the card and present the network to the user. Enterprises will be able to use the iPass Portal as a one-stop shop for web-based management and unified billing.
