The iPass Open Mobile client for laptops allows organizations to provide granular options for how employees connect to iPass Wi-Fi (the iPass Mobile Network), campus Wi-Fi, mobile broadband (3G/4G), Ethernet, and dial, using a single platform to manage all connections. Open Mobile also enables cost and security controls that provide virtual private network (VPN) integration options; mobile broadband 3G/4G usage controls for both data roaming and data usage; endpoint integrity verification that checks the security of the device at the point of connection; and several additional options for setting network connection and restriction policies. Insight into an organization's mobility usage is provided through user and device activity and summary reports as well as mobile broadband usage reports.

iPass Open Mobile on laptops provides a true universal connection manager, allowing users to leverage the world's largest commercial Wi-Fi network as a cost-effective alternative to mobile broadband data roaming. Users no longer need to worry about data usage limits or expensing Wi-Fi day passes back from multiple devices.
