MCI and Boingo Wireless together in hotspots
Posted on 17-Dec-2003 20:07 | Tags Filed under: News



MCI announced it has expanded its remote access services to provide traveling and remote workers with additional hotspots and the ability to access information from a personal digital assistant (PDA) through a roaming agreement with Boingo Wireless. This agreement adds more than 2,000 global wireless hot spot access points to MCI's existing 600 US Wi-Fi locations.

MCI Remote Access customers will be able to access corporate networks, applications and email from a personal digital assistant (PDA). By expanding MCI's Access Manager client to work on a PDA, customers can access the same features and functionality they have come to expect from their remote access solution on a personal computer. Adding PDA accessibility to MCI's Remote Access solution allows customers to take the functionality of their PC out of the office in a handheld device.

Through its roaming agreement with Boingo Wireless, MCI has expanded its Wi-Fi remote access capabilities to more than 2,600 global hotspots including hotels, airports, restaurants and convention centers. MCI plans to add an another 3,000 wired and wireless hotspot locations in 2004.

With the expansion of MCI's Wi-Fi access locations, business customers will be able to access MCI's Remote Access services from a wireless connection or PDA in more than 19 countries including Japan, Mexico, the United Kingdom and South Africa later in 2004.

By integrating wireless, dial-up, DSL, Ethernet and PDA access points into MCI's Access Manager client, customers experience a seamless solution to launch a VPN client, authenticate access and manage user profiles. The new MCI Access Manager client includes improved hot spot integration to automatically discover and configure wireless access on the end user's PC and identify locally available MCI hot spots. MCI's VPN solution allows customers to securely connect in more than 140 countries, and when combined with other MCI security features give customers a highly secure end-to-end connection.
