Vonage and Boingo Wireless to market VoIP together
Posted on 19-Oct-2004 08:20. | Tags Filed under: News.



Boingo Wireless and Vonage Holdings Corp., announced a relationship to bring VoIP services to the market bundled with wireless offers. In the first phase of their partnership, the companies have agreed to co-market a service bundle that includes Vonage's SoftPhone service and Boingo's Wi-Fi service. The XPRO SoftPhone, from XTEN, the preferred Softphone Client utilized by Vonage is available for personal computers running Windows 98SE/NT/ME/2000/XP/MAC OS X operating systems.

This offering targets business travelers, enabling them to make and take phone calls at Boingo's network of 11,000 airports, cafes, and hotels around the world. The companies will conduct a trial before the end of the year and expect to rollout the offering to major retail locations where consumers can now purchase the Vonage service.

"VoIP is causing a paradigm shift in the telecom world because it offers a new level of value and features to anyone with a broadband connection. Adding mobility to this bundle will help to make it compelling to a new audience," said Jeffrey A. Citron, president and CEO of Vonage Holdings Corp. "Our ability to plug the Vonage solution into Boingo's massive Wi-Fi network makes our service even more useful to customers."

The Vonage agreement is the first step in Boingo's VoIP strategy, integrating a new class of device software into non-PC devices like mobile phones to login and authenticate onto any of the thousands of hot spots in the Boingo Roaming System. The device software provides essential Wi-Fi services including signal sniffing, authentication, network selection, and profile management -- and can be private labeled for major service providers.
