KPN Hotspots B.V., Holland's largest provider of Wi-Fi® hotspots, has partnered with Proxim to deliver Wi-Fi hotspot services for nearly three years. To date, KPN has more than 2,000 of Proxim's ORiNOCO® AP-700 and AP-4000 access points deployed throughout Holland, providing Wi-Fi hotspot access to millions of people each year.
In 2009, KPN announced that it ordered more than 600 additional access points from Proxim to continue the expansion of its network.
"Providing our customers with the greatest Wi-Fi connectivity - regardless of where they go - requires the support of solid technology partners" said Thijs Gunter, Manager Technology, Wholesale Operations, KPN HotSpots B.V. "We have been using Proxim's Wi-Fi access points as the technology of choice for all of our indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi hotspots for the last three years based on superior performance and value when compared to the competition. As we continue to expand our network to new locations and to support more services, we are happy to expand our partnership with Proxim."
KPN currently has thousands of hotspots throughout Holland at establishments such as:
The planned expansion will include the deployment of Wi-Fi hotspots at Holland's Holiday parks. KPN will be extending hotspot service to over 100 Holiday parks throughout the country, including both indoor Wi-Fi access in the bungalows and guest rooms via Proxim's ORiNOCO AP-700 and AP-4000 radios, as well as outdoor Wi-Fi service in common areas and parks via Proxim's Wi-Fi mesh equipment.
"KPN has been an excellent partner, and their continued selection of Proxim equipment for their ever increasing Wi-Fi hotspot network is a great validation of our products," said Ralf Labeda, Director of Sales, Northern Europe for Proxim Wireless. "We look forward to providing KPN the equipment to extend their network and offer Wi-Fi services to their customers."
