iPass and Orange Business Services Partner to Deliver Enterprise Mobility Services to Enterprises Worldwide

Global Communications Solutions Integrator to Develop and Market New Enterprise Mobility Solution Based on the iPass Open Mobile Platform as Part of Its Portfolio

LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 03/08/11 -- iPass Inc. (NASDAQ: IPAS), a leading provider of enterprise mobility services, today announced an extended agreement with Orange Business Services, a leading global communications solutions integrator. Orange Business Services will offer the iPass Open Mobile platform, a cloud-based services delivery system, as part of its enterprise mobility solution. Delivering unrivalled choice in access, devices and services, the solution will help Orange Business Services customers to keep up with the pace of innovation while driving down the cost of mobility.

Orange Business Services plans to deploy the iPass Open Mobile platform as the engine within its own Business Everywhere solution. After successfully using iPass enterprise mobility services within its solution for CAC40 and multinational enterprises, Orange Business Services is also expanding the agreement to meet rising demand from its wider portfolio across smaller enterprises, where the pain of overcoming mobility challenges is just as acute.

"As a large carrier, Orange Business Services has high standards for both its service levels to customers and the strength of the technology we underpin those services with. We had no hesitation in relying on iPass to extend our Business Everywhere solution to smaller-enterprises having worked with iPass for a number of years," said Jeroen van Brussel, vice president International Mobility & Global Solutions MNC at Orange Business Services. "Well planned, executed and managed mobility services should not just be for those within the realms of the upper echelons of business but rather be available to all. With demand steadily rising, we're looking forward to offering our iPass-powered service to a wider section of our customer base."

"Orange Business Services has been a key strategic partner for iPass, and this latest agreement reflects our successful partnership and also the vision we share for providing businesses with an enterprise-class connectivity solution," said Rene Hendrikse, vice president of iPass EMEA. "As its name suggests, our Open Mobile Platform was designed with an open architecture to allow partners like Orange Business Services to define their own mobility services based on their customers' needs."

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages.
