Bern, Switzerland, 11 June, 2008 –Comfone today announces the recent launch of its WiFi remote test service to facilitate the testing and rollout of WiFi roaming services. The service enables operators and software suppliers to remotely test the inter-operability between WISPr client software and over 30 test hotspots located in a single location in Bern, Switzerland. Users of the WiFi remote test service connect remotely to a test laptop situated in Comfone’s WiFi laboratory in Bern, install their own software and perform the roaming tests. Major WiFi networks are present at Comfone’s test laboratory, including Orange France, BT Openzone, ATT, SoftBank and KPN. During testing the user controls which networks are active and can subsequently test different
roaming scenarios. The service can also be used to monitor browser based login experience.

One of the first customers of the service, Whisher, on completion of successful testing, commented, "Thanks to Comfone's service we could verify the inter-operability of our software with over 30 networks within two days of testing and without having to leave our offices”, said David Douek, Head of Business Development Whisher. Whisher is a WiFi access service provider that enables users to achieve seamless connectivity across shared and commercial hotspots. Laurent Freléchoux, Product Marketing Director of WeRoam Services, Comfone, said, “The WiFi remote test service is a new component of Comfone’s portfolio of inter-operability and quality testing tools for wireless roaming. It complements our existing GSM testing services, such as IR21 tests andGSM remote test systems used for our Key2roam roaming hub service”.
