Boingo Chosen as Wireless Provider for Dallas Love Field Airport
Airport Modernization Effort Includes Boingo Neutral Host Wi-Fi and DAS
LOS ANGELES -- November 01, 2012
Boingo Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ: WIFI), the Wi-Fi industry’s leading provider of
software and services worldwide, announced today that the company has been
chosen by the City of Dallas as the wireless provider for Dallas Love Field.
The company will install, manage and operate neutral host Wi-Fi and DAS
networks as part of the airport’s current modernization initiative.
Boingo has assumed management responsibilities for part of the airport’s
existing Wi-Fi infrastructure, and is already managing the customer experience
at the airport. The company will also design a state-of-the-art network in
conjunction with the Love Field Modernization Program to renovate and
revitalize the airport. Boingo’s enhanced wireless services will launch in
conjunction with the opening of the remodeled Love Field complex in Q1 2013.
The upgraded Wi-Fi and DAS services will continue to roll out through 2014 as
the Love Field revitalization is completed.
Boingo will deploy its popular tiered Wi-Fi service, which provides
complimentary Wi-Fi access for casual users and offers premium service for
power users who need more time and bandwidth. Airports such as Love Field
benefit from this kind of hybrid network by offering complimentary Wi-Fi while
retaining a revenue stream from premium services that helps offset the
increasing costs of upgrading the network and bandwidth to accommodate
Boingo’s neutral host approach to Wi-Fi and DAS networks also maximizes
availability of wireless services for all wireless service providers without
bias, including Wi-Fi roaming and platform service partners such as Verizon,
LGU+, Orange France and Skype, among many others.
The company will collaborate with Love Field to introduce innovative
free-to-consumer services to enhance the passenger experience on an ongoing
basis. Dallas Love Field will gain access to Boingo’s new custom content
portal, which will offer travelers a selection of online content, movies,
shopping, games and other online services that can be enjoyed with no Wi-Fi
“Boingo’s partnership approach will help us deliver the most advanced wireless
and customer service options to our passengers while making sure we’ll be able
to keep up with the exponential growth going forward,” said Karl Martin, CIS
Portfolio Manager-Airport Electronic Systems Management for the City of Dallas
Department of Aviation.
“As demand on wireless networks explodes, we’ll continue to work with airport
partners like Love Field to find creative solutions to the cost-benefit
dilemma of providing value to travelers that is economically sustainable for
the airport,” said Mark Deshaies, vice president, operations for Boingo
Boingo Wireless manages and operates Wi-Fi and DAS networks at large-scale
consumer venues worldwide, including more than 60 of the world’s most highly
trafficked airports, such as London Heathrow, Chicago O’Hare, Beijing Capital,
New York John F. Kennedy, Denver International, Bangkok Suvarnabhumi
International, Lisbon Portela and Rome Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino.
