iPass and Etisalat Partner to Provide Expanded Coverage

Recent Agreement to Increase Middle East Coverage for iPass Customers

London, UK, (PresseBox) - iPass Inc. (NASDAQ: IPAS) a global provider of services that unify the management of enterprise mobility, today announced a partnership agreement with Etisalat, the United Arab Emirates' (UAE) largest telecommunications operator. Under the terms of the agreement, iPass customers will benefit from the addition of hundreds of Wi-Fi hotspot locations within the UAE.

The new hotspots include locations in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Al Ain, Sharjah, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah and Khorfakkan, including four international airports, major hotels such as the Ritz-Carlton, and coffee shops across the country. Before being integrated into the iPass Global Broadband Roaming network, the Etisalat Wi-Fi hotspots will go through the iPass Enterprise Ready certification process, which includes testing for performance, reliability and compatibility with a comprehensive range of virtual private network (VPN), personal firewall and anti-virus software solutions.

"The addition of Etisalat to our network is an important boost to the broadband access coverage our customers will receive when traveling to the influential emirates," commented René Hendrikse, Managing Director EMEA, iPass. "With over 100,000 hotspot locations to choose from worldwide, iPass users now have more ways than ever to stay productive on the road".

iPass customers will be able to log onto the Internet and access critical corporate data at Etisalat hotspot locations via the iPassConnect(TM) mobility manager software. This helps these companies save money by avoiding the expense of Wi-Fi hotspot vouchers or 3G international data roaming charges, and ensures that security policies are followed.

The iPassConnect(TM) mobility manager contains a directory of all locations available worldwide, regardless of connection type. To connect, users simply select the desired network or Wi-Fi venue and enter their corporate username and password. Ethernet and Wi-Fi locations are detected and displayed to the user automatically, making the connection even easier and quicker to establish.
