The Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA) has selected Boingo as the exclusive neutral-host wireless network partner for Nashville International Airport.

Under the exclusive long-term agreement, Boingo will offer comprehensive cellular and enhanced Wi-Fi services to the airport.

Boingo will install and manage a new neutral-host distributed antenna system (DAS) network for the airport, a move which will strengthen cellular coverage and data capacity throughout the hub.

"Extending our long-standing partnership with Boingo will give us a complete wireless solution to meet the needs of our diverse, connected passenger base."

According to Boingo, its neutral-host network approach maximises participation from multiple wireless carriers, ensuring that travellers experience a carrier grade connection.

Boingo aims to extend complimentary, ad-supported Wi-Fi to all airport passengers, while continuing to provide premium Wi-Fi access for subscribers and travellers engaging in high-bandwidth activities.

Boingo plans to extend the Wi-Fi network to new areas of the airport, including car rental facilities, internal roadway systems and aircraft parking areas.

MNAA president and CEO Rob Wigington said: "Extending our long-standing partnership with Boingo will give us a complete wireless solution to meet the needs of our diverse, connected passenger base.

"Boingo will provide a new, robust free Wi-Fi experience and end-to-end support, from DAS network design and installation to advertising sales and 24/7 customer care."

Boingo president Nick Hulse said that Nashville International Airport served more than ten million passengers last year and is growing quickly.

"Our new neutral-host DAS system and enhanced Wi-Fi networks will be designed to scale as the airport grows and serve the needs of connected passengers today, and in the future," Hulse said.

Apart from network installation and operation, Boingo will also manage Wi-Fi advertising sales and support for the airport through Boingo Media, the company’s advertising and sponsorship services group.
