January 13, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsMilwaukee, WI – 13 January 2007 – EthoStream today announced that iPass enterprise customers may now make full use of the EthoStream Hospitality Network throughout the US and abroad.
The EthoStream Hospitality Network is comprised of more than 1300 locations throughout the 50 states and 6 countries. The EthoStream Hospitality Network consists of members within industries such as hospitality, multi-tenant, municipal, library and the restaurant industry.
iPass customers now have access to a significant hospitality footprint via iPassConnect throughout the US, in addition to the iPass global network of more than 70,000 Wi-Fi hotspots worldwide, 3G, fixed broadband connections, and dial-up networks in more than 160 countries. The agreement with iPass comes as EthoStream is wrapping up one of the largest exclusive hospitality franchise rollouts completed in the US.
Jason Tienor, President of EthoStream commented: “Secure access and roaming services are perfect examples of EthoStream’s growth strategy. Through offering greater end-user value, we are promoting the use of our EthoStream Hospitality Network member properties, thereby bringing guests to the property. Through the last six months alone EthoStream has grown from fewer than 700 properties to more than 1300 and we are on pace for the same growth for 2007. Enabling our member properties for the iPass Global Broadband Roaming service provides secure, seamless access to the EthoStream Hospitality Network for domestic and international iPass customers traveling throughout the US.”
The EthoStream Hospitality Network has been certified as iPass Enterprise-Ready, and is available to iPass customers via the iPassConnect™ single interface client. To achieve this certification, the network had to pass stringent tests on service availability and interoperability with policy and security tools, including a comprehensive range of Virtual Private Networks, personal firewalls and anti-virus software.
