Boingo woos new carriers and ISPs

Boingo Wireless said Monday it will begin offering software to cellular carriers, wireless telecommunications companies and Internet service providers to accelerate their entry into the Wi-Fi business. The software, Boingo Platform Services, will open up a network of Wi-Fi hot spot locations to carriers and ISPs so their subscribers will be able to wirelessly access the Internet. The package includes Wi-Fi client software and access to hot spots that are part of Boingo's network and can be branded under the name of the carrier or ISP.

The software will also include a hot spot sniffer, a built-in searchable location directory, a profile manager and built-in virtual private network (VPN) software.
