Boingo Wireless today said it will design, install and manage a new neutral host Distributed Antenna System (DAS) for John Wayne Airport in Southern California.
Boingo will provide connectivity services for the airport via indoor DAS deployment that maximizes carrier participation and ensures carrier-grade coverage for all users. Boingo will manage any future deployments of cellular small cell networks at the airport.
Boingo will upgrade John Wayne Airport’s existing Wi-Fi network. Ad-supported free Wi-Fi service will continue to be available to all travelers, enabled by the Boingo Media platform.
The network will also be Passpoint-enabled, providing access to the secure Wi-Fi network. Users who have Passpoint-capable devices and have installed a Passpoint profile will automatically be connected to the WPA2-encrypted network.
“With our passenger traffic growing, it’s important that wireless networks are enhanced to meet today’s connected travelers’ needs, and built to scale as travelers carry more devices that consume data more quickly,” said Alan L. Murphy, Airport Director, John Wayne Airport.
Boingo manages services at more than 75 airports, representing more than 40 percent of the world’s top 50 airports. The company manages Wi-Fi services at five of the top ten highest traffic airports in the United States, including Chicago’s O’Hare International, Los Angeles International, New York’s John F. Kennedy, and Miami International.
