FRISCO, TEXAS, NOV. 6, 2023—Boingo Wireless, a leading provider of wireless solutions for the U.S. military, will join the Association of Defense Communities (ADC) Installation Innovation Forum keynote on Tuesday, Nov. 7. The keynote session will address the biggest housing challenges military families, installations and communities face. Rebecca Gray, senior vice president and general manager of military at Boingo, will facilitate a conversation surrounding base housing solutions, and necessities to support wireless network installation resilience and an enhanced quality of life for service members and their families.
“The Department of Defense is committed to ensuring Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines have connectivity. Reliable and resilient communications infrastructure is critical for mission readiness as well as quality of life on base. Service members require high-speed Wi-Fi access for a multitude of reasons—education, communication, support services and recreational opportunities. Prioritizing this need when assessing housing solutions underscores commitment to their well-being,” said Gray. “The deployment of cutting-edge Boingo 5G and Wi-Fi networks on U.S. military bases not only bolsters mission readiness, it strengthens the social fabric and overall well-being of our military communities.”
With award-winning 5G and Wi-Fi network solutions, Boingo is the Department of Defense’s trusted partner, providing connectivity at more than 85 Army, Air Force, Marine Corps, Navy and Homeland Security Training Center locations worldwide. As experts in designing, building and managing technology-agnostic communication infrastructure, Boingo is able to leverage the wireless solution that best meets the needs of each base and its mission. Meeting the unique needs of every base, Boingo delivers fast Wi-Fi for troops living in the barracks and on-base family housing without contracts, appointments or equipment needed; connectivity for military education and facilities on base including gyms, classrooms and offices; macro towers and small cells for seamless cellular service; and private cellular solutions for secure 5G and IoT deployments on base. Supporting installation modernization and resilience, Boingo’s secure networks are backed by a 24/7/365 Network Operations Center, feature zero-trust security and meet stringent Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security requirements.
