Telefonica Peru and Nomadix to Deploy Interconnected Web of Wi-Fi Hotspots and Municipal Meshes


NEWBURY PARK, Calif. - September 21, 2006 - Nomadix, Inc. (, a leading supplier of intelligent network devices and interconnect services for guest access, digital cities, and carrier HotSpots, is working with Telefonica Peru to deploy a web of ‘coexisting’ Internet HotSpots and municipal meshes. The service is targeted at Telefonica Peru’s high number of mobile professionals, and will function as a pay-as-you-go Roaming IP service to all subscribers.

“Telefonica Peru’s coexisting Wi-Fi networks will provide an unprecedented level of mobility,” said Fernando Jiménez Motte, Internet Product Manager of Telefonica Peru. “Nomadix gateways are known for their flexibility, reliability, scalability, and ease-of-installment. The gateways are also rigorously secure, which is of the utmost importance to our financial services customers.”

Telefonica Peru’s ‘Roaming IP’ services will be available in Lima and other key Peruvian provinces—and will also include Wi-Fi hotspots in 68 other countries through its partnership with iPass, a leading mobile broadband roaming provider located in Redwood Shores, California. Telefonica Peru expects the new services to drive exponential increases in new subscriptions as well as an increase in international Roaming IP above 2006 levels. The hotspots and mesh networks, deployed in airports, hotels, shopping centers, and other public spaces, will make Peru one of the preeminent wireless societies on the planet.

The Nomadix Service Engine™ (NSE) is a Wi-Fi gateway that resides in venue, carrier, municipality, or service provider infrastructure to enable connectivity in public access environments. Embedded on the NSE itself, Nomadix’ patented gateway software immediately and invisibly adapts to a computer’s settings to enable a secure, easy-to-use connection. In addition, NSE software presents a unique service creation environment, and supports a variety of revenue-generating and monetization mechanisms for operators. Since its inception, Nomadix has shipped over 26,000 NSE-enabled units to customers in over 60 countries.

“Nomadix’ technology allows for the creation of services that both streamline the user experience and allow for success in all Telefonica Peru’s goals,” said Scott Zumbahlen, director of marketing for Nomadix. “This deployment fits within a larger framework of digital communities in which high-speed wireless Internet functions as an ever-present utility for the mobile lifestyle. We are pleased to be a part of this global trend.”
