Enterprise remote connectivity specialist iPass announced a flat-rate offering that combines iPass global WiFi access, connection management and device management. The iPass Mobility Management builds on iPass' global enterprise flat-rate pricing plans, initially introduced in 2006, by incorporating device management capabilities. For the first time, customers pay a flat fee based only on the number of devices subscribing to the service, no matter how many times they connect or use the iPass network within a given month, giving companies the cost predictability they need to extend the benefits of mobility beyond frequent business travelers to include any worker.
Cost has been a major barrier to widespread adoption of WiFi outside of the office. "We work to tailor to the enterprise a price package. We can give them confidence that they will have predictable costs. IT managers have had a hard time coming to terms with this," said Joel Wachtler, vice president of marketing and strategy with iPass, in an interview with FierceBroadbandWireless.
