Boingo and Tropos Partner on Metro Scale Wi-Fi

Boingo Wireless and Tropos Networks announced a partnership to provide roaming over metro-scale broadband networks. The partnership would enable operators of Tropos-powered metro-scale Wi-Fi networks to allow Boingo Roaming System users to access their networks. The announcement focuses on Tropos' MetroZone Pilot Pack, a turnkey Wi-Fi solution for localized areas of up to one-half square mile. The MetroZone Pilot Pack contains one Pronto Hotzone Gateway with a Pronto OSS software license for up to 100 concurrent users and five Tropos 5110 outdoor Wi-Fi cells, and includes one year of technical support. If the network is a paid-access network, subscribers of the Boingo service and subscribers to services offered by Boingo Platform Services partners (currently MCI, EarthLink, Fiberlink, Infonet and Telecom Italia) can use it as part of their regular monthly service fee, while non-Boingo users can pay a daily connect fee to go online. http://www.tropos.comhttp://www.boingo.com
