Boingo Wireless (NASDAQ: WIFI), the leading distributed antenna system (DAS) and Wi-Fi provider, has been selected by Foulger-Pratt, a real estate investment and development firm, to launch managed Wi-Fi services at three luxury multifamily properties in Washington, D.C. Boingo managed wireless networks will bring residents at Beckert’s Park, ONE501 and Press House fast, instant connectivity inside apartments and throughout all common areas, which include quiet spaces to support those working remote. In addition, the secure Boingo network will enable a contact-free move in process—from identity verification to apartment inspections.
“For today’s residents, easy, secure, and fast connectivity community-wide is an essential requirement,” said Michael J. Zeto III, senior vice president of global strategy and emerging businesses at Boingo. “At Foulger-Pratt’s amenity-rich, technology-forward properties, the Boingo wireless networks are designed for the 5G era—delivering the capacity and speed needed today to stream, download, video chat and game while able to scale for future innovations.”
“Amid COVID-19 we’ve realized it’s critical to have wireless connectivity that you can trust and always access. Partnering with Boingo—at our new Beckert’s Park, ONE501 and Press House properties—provides secure connectivity property-wide, and notably in co-working areas for those juggling the demands of working from home,” said Judd Ullom, director of development at Foulger-Pratt. “With Boingo, residents simply log in and receive Wi-Fi access the day they move in. Boingo makes Wi-Fi easy, fast and secure for our residents and staff.”
Boingo’s community-wide managed network powers the Foulger-Pratt Room2Roam service and is engineered for the 5G era. The network is backed by 24/7 customer service and delivers real-time network insights for property managers. Foulger-Pratt’s property management team is utilizing the Boingo network to power a safe, contact-free move in process with mobile applications and smart software to remotely verify tenant identification, electronically sign leases, and allow residents to document unit inspection results in real-time via their smartphone.
