Distributor Tech Data has announced a pan-European agreement with NASDAQ-quoted iPass, a provider of global mobile connectivity. Tech Data will distribute iPass’ intelligent connection management and Wi-Fi service offerings. The iPass SmartConnect service delivers simple, secure, unlimited Wi-Fi access on any mobile device, powered by the world’s largest Wi-Fi network.

With access to more than 64 million hotspots globally and inflight Wi-Fi on more than 20 leading airlines, the data-driven iPass SmartConnect uses intelligent network selection to choose the best network for a user’s needs, whether Wi-Fi or cellular, based on availability, performance and cost.

Tech Data customers will be able to acquire the iPass solution as a standalone product or as a bundled solution, integrated with hardware devices. Tech Data can also facilitate partnerships between iPass and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to integrate iPass SmartConnect technology in their products.

Luc Van Huystee, VP mobility solutions Europe at Tech Data, said: “iPass SmartConnect is a great addition to our portfolio of products and services; it answers the increased need for secure Wi-Fi connectivity, whether it is for work or leisure. Following the successful launch of the iPass solution to Tech Data customers in the US and Canada, we are pleased to extend this offering in Europe, further demonstrating Tech Data’s clear focus on connecting our partners with a comprehensive range of next generation mobility solutions.”

Mato Petrusic, VP EMEA at iPass, commented: “We are delighted that Tech Data’s substantial European customer base will be able to benefit from access to our global Wi-Fi network. Connectivity is essential for today’s mobile workforce. With iPass SmartConnect, Tech Data’s channel partners will now be able to easily integrate secure global Wi-Fi connectivity into their mobile solution offerings. We believe this will bring great added value to many enterprises.”
