Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Remote access provider iPass is to add Boeing's Connexion in-flight Wi-Fi service to its list of aggregated hotspots, the company said today.

Of course, the various airborne hotspots maintained by Connexion will not be added to iPass' network immediately. They will first have to undergo the provider's certification process, which ensures they're equipped with the software compatibility and functionality iPass requires to do its authentication, billing and finally make a connection through to the user's enterprise LAN.

Connexion is currently available on Lufthansa flights between Munich and Los Angeles, and the airline's Munich-Tokyo-Munich route. Nippon Airways, China Airlines, Japan Airlines, Scandinavian Airlines and Singapore Airlines have all agreed to implement Connexion on "selected" routes.

iPass already has access points in some 121 airports in 21 countries as a result of tie-ins with both wireless and wired network operators. ®
