WALTHAM, Mass. -- Airpath Wireless is setting the standard for profit and growth in the Wireless Hotspot industry by offering its hotspot management platform directly to providers, and also through the Airpath Provider Alliance (APA), a program that delivers roaming capabilities in 17 countries.

WiBOSSTM, Airpath's carrier-grade Wi-Fi public access management platform, currently serves the hotspot management needs of nearly 500 Wireless Internet Service Providers (WISPs) operating 3000 hotspot locations in 17 countries located in the Americas, EMEA and Asia Pac.

In turn, these WISPs obtain an instant global coverage footprint through the bilateral roaming capabilities of the APA. In addition to the substantial roaming network the APA affords its providers, the company has also established mutual roaming agreements with major carriers that help to further push Airpath's vision of global Wi-Fi ubiquity.

"Our management platform does all the work including access, authentication and billing for providers, allowing them to focus on building out more hotspot locations, and enabling all of us to generate strong cash flow," said Chief Executive Officer Todd Myers. "Now that we have secured $6 million in series A financing, and hired a seasoned team of executives, Airpath Wireless is in a position to take our already strong market position and grow exponentially," added Myers.

Airpath's providers are also enthusiastic about the growth phase the company is entering. An Airpath provider from Canada had the following to say about the company: "[Airpath's] model and products have made it possible for our company to succeed, and we feel it will be their model and vision for the future of the industry that will contribute to our company's future successes as well. Airpath makes it possible for our company to rapidly, intelligently and successfully battle for a share of this valuable market place. They have been and will continue to be an invaluable partner in our success."

Airpath Wireless will be an exhibitor at the upcoming Wi-Fi Planet Conference and Exhibition in Baltimore, Maryland from June 8 - 10.
