CHANNEL PARTNERS ViaSat Inc. (Meeting Room Sponsor) has expanded its Exede Business offerings with goWiFi, a service that provides plug-and-play wireless hotspots for single and multisite networks.
goWiFi manages more than 100,000 indoor and outdoor public hotspots as well as user access from more than 5 million access points worldwide.
This summer, ViaSat also will introduce Exede Continuity, which will provide what the company says is cost-effective backup Internet service. That and goWiFi complement Exede Business Internet, which reaches thousands of U.S. businesses not serviced by many terrestrial ISPs.
“Businesses in all sectors, from retail to professional services, are looking for ways they can compete, grow and better serve their customers using the Internet,” said Dan Turak, vice president of sales and distribution. “Our business solutions offer innovative ways for companies to expand their connections with their customers and prevent costly online downtime.”
Turak added that for agents selling communications services to their clients, Exede business solutions offer a one-stop shop, particularly for areas without internet from cable MSOs or telephone companies.
“Oftentimes, these solutions have to be sourced from a variety of different companies, which can be a nightmare for a business with locations around the country,” Turak said. “Exede makes it a lot simpler, and it’s available in many of the places traditional providers either can’t or won’t offer high-speed internet. With Exede Business Internet, agents are easily able to fill in gaps in their coverage.”
