 Emirates Standardizes on iPass Enterprise Mobility Services
Airline simplifies connectivity for its mobile workers and enables IT department to control mobility costs with master connection manager
LONDON, March 18, 222010 (Business Wire / ME NewsWire): iPass® Inc. (NASDAQ:IPAS) today announced that Emirates Airline has standardized on iPass enterprise mobility services for simple, and secure access to critical data for its 1,400 “non-flying” mobile employees.
Whether Emirates employees are traveling internationally or within the United Arab Emirates, the travel and tourism conglomerate is deploying iPass as the master connection manager across its mobile employee devices, and gaining tighter control over mobility and the associated costs. Emirates is also offering its mobile employees access to the iPass Mobile Network, with more than 140,000 hotspots in 79 countries. Instead of employees running up sizeable expense claims for Wi-Fi subscriptions and 3G roaming charges, the iPass Mobile Network provides IT with insight into mobile usage, and the ability to take action on that insight.
“iPass offers the only solution on the market that really addressed our need for simplicity and security at the end-user level combined with centralised visibility and management of mobility costs,” said Sean Kelly, technical manager, Emirates. “iPass now provides our master connection manager and is used to logon to our campus Wi-Fi as well as the wider iPass Mobile Network. The whole connection process is very simple and transparent and our mobile employees really appreciate this ease of use. They know that if they need to get connected, iPass can be relied upon.”
