Boingo signs deal with Orange County John Wayne Airport

John Wayne Airport in Orange County, California has selected Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ:WIFI) as its neutral host wireless network partner to improve cellular connectivity and provide Wi-Fi service to more than 9 million passengers who go through the airport every year. According to the company’s press release, Boingo will “design, install and manage a new neutral host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for the airport, which will boost cellular coverage and capacity throughout the airport. Boingo’s industry-leading approach to indoor DAS deployments maximizes carrier participation and ensures carrier-grade coverage for all users. Boingo will manage any future deployments of cellular small cell networks at the airport.”

Boingo will also upgrade John Wayne Airport’s existing Wi-Fi network to improve speed and coverage. People who are not Boingo subscribers or subscribers of Boingo’s roaming partners, can get free Wi-Fi access but they have to look at ads. The new network will be Passpoint-enabled, providing seamless access to the secure Wi-Fi network using the industry’s latest technologies. Users who have Passpoint-capable devices and have installed a Passpoint profile will automatically be connected to the WPA2-encrypted network.

Boingo provides neutral host Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) in US airports. It is also the leading airport Wi-Fi provider, managing services at more than 75 airports, representing more than 40% of the world’s top 50 airports. The company manages Wi-Fi services at five of the top ten highest traffic airports in the United States, including Chicago’s O’Hare International, Los Angeles International, New York’s John F. Kennedy, and Miami International.
