REDWOOD SHORES, California, 4 May 2016 – iPass Inc. (NASDAQ: IPAS), the leading provider of global mobile connectivity, today announced a partnership with campusSIMs Inc., the mobile service for international students. Under the terms of the partnership, campusSIMs will give its student subscribers access to the world’s largest and growing Wi-Fi network, leveraging the iPass SmartConnect™ Software Development Kit (SDK). Recently announced, the iPass SmartConnect SDK enables enterprises, operators and device manufacturers to incorporate iPass global connectivity into their mobile applications for Android and iOS.
campusSIMs offers no contract, hassle-free mobile plans specifically designed for the convenience and needs of international students, with SIM cards provided for use on the largest 4G LTE network. The partnership with iPass incorporates Wi-Fi connectivity into the campusSIMs mobile offering, giving campusSIMs students simple, secure, always-on Wi-Fi access on their mobile devices.
“Cost-effective data access is integral to the life of millennial students, who are heavily reliant on Wi-Fi to stay connected, wherever they are, whether on or off campus,” said Gary Griffiths, president and CEO of iPass. “But too often, students only have Wi-Fi access when they’re on campus. iPass’ partnership with campusSIMs ensures that those students have instant access to secure, always on Wi-Fi the moment they arrive in the U.S. as well as throughout their studies.”
“We are thrilled to integrate the iPass SDK into our app and provide our subscribers seamless access to millions of Wi-Fi hotspots across the U.S.” said Scott Pirrello, founder and CEO of campusSIMs, Inc. “This partnership fits into our long term strategic vision to provide our subscribers with the best wireless services experience in the industry.”
