WeRoam to provide global WLAN coverage for Devicom

(PresseBox) (Bern, ) Bern, 15 November 2007 — WeRoam, a leading wholesale aggregator of Public WLAN Roaming, has won Devicom, Sweden, as customer of its open WLAN Roaming platform. The two companies have signed an agreement that allows Devicom to offer international wireless broadband access to over 35’000 WeRoam wifi hotspots worldwide in over 60 countries using the whitelabel highly flexible Connection Assistant (CA) solution.

“We are excited about Devicom´s rollout plans and WeRoam´s Connection Assistant is the perfect fit to support a successful development” says Toni Stadelmann, Vice Chairman, Comfone. WeRoam will ship the CA with support for Windows 2000, XP and Vista. The CA contains an offline hotspot directory, a comprehensive WLAN tutorial and FAQ. The Software will be entirely branded and styled to Devicom’s business needs. Comfone will distribute automatically monthly updated hotspot lists and WISPr profiles of the new networks.

Devicom’s core business is low cost international calls. As a result of this agreement, Devicom can quickly and inexpensively roll out a global wireless broadband service and package it with a low price GSM roaming service. “This partnership is very exciting because it allows Devicom to offer global wireless internet services quickly without developing a new core business. We can soon launch a host of global wireless broadband services without building a costly wireless internet network covering 60 countries and package it with a low price GSM roaming service.” says Jennings Segura, Director of New Products and Markets for Devicom.
