iPass, a leading provider of global mobile connectivity and location technology, announced that Deutsche Telekom has signed a seven-figure deal to license iPass SmartConnect.

The technology improves the customer experience and operational efficiency of carrier services. While using iPass SmartConnect, subscribers are automatically connected to the best wireless network available. At the same time, the operator is able to control data flow through intelligent management of Wi-Fi traffic.

As part of this partnership, DTAG and iPass will collaborate to build a dedicated “Platform-on-Demand” (POD), through which iPass SmartConnect and related services will be operated and managed by DTAG in Germany as a DTAG private cloud.

The deal will also see Deutsche Telekom leverage iPass Network Intelligence to gain greater visibility into the performance and operation of its networks. Together, the two products will improve network service quality for the entire Deutsche Telekom subscriber base.

Patricia Hune, COO, iPass
The partnership with Deutsche Telekom, one of the world’s largest carriers, shows that our technology delivers tangible benefits to carriers. iPass provides best-in-class technology that will deliver secure, reliable connectivity and network analytics to help Deutsche Telekom enhance its enterprise and consumer offerings.

Claus Hessberger, VP, Deutsche Telekom
This new deal marks the next step in our ongoing partnership with iPass. We see iPass technology and data analytics as central to achieving our goal of providing the best possible customer experience and network service.
