NetMotion Wireless Mobility XE and Locality Win Top Honors in Fierce Innovation Awards

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- NetMotion Wireless, provider of software to secure, manage and optimize an organization's mobile data deployment, today announced its Mobility XE mobile VPN has won the Fierce Innovation Award in the Device and Network Security category and its Locality cellular network performance management software was recognized as a finalist in the Test and Measurement category. Judges selected the company's solutions after evaluating their technology innovation, financial impact, market validation and end-user customer experience. The Fierce Innovation Awards are an operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable.

"No enterprise would tolerate frequent network access interruptions for employees in a traditional office setting because of the threat to productivity and efficiency, yet that's what's going on in many field deployments today," said Bob Hunsberger, president and CEO of NetMotion Wireless. "Our superior approach to maintaining and monitoring connections in unpredictable wireless environments has led to more than 2,000 customer installations. We're thrilled to be recognized by operators for helping users overcome the technical challenges of staying connected and making it possible to troubleshoot performance issues with real-world data."

Mobility XE and Locality were selected by an exclusive panel of carrier-only judges, including Stephen Bye, CTO and VP of Technology Development and Strategy at Sprint; Mattias Fridstrom, VP and Head of Technology at TeliaSonera International; Abhi Ingle, VP of Ecosystem and Innovation at AT&T; Tom Nagel, SVP of Business Development and Strategy for Communications and Data Services at Comcast Cable; Todd Smith, Director of Media Relations at Cox Communications; and Jim Wales, Executive Director of Networks at Verizon.

Mobility XE is client/server software specifically built for wireless environments. It boosts employee productivity by ensuring that work isn't halted by lost connections or by moving from one network to another. Mobility XE prevents field workers, such as those at Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO) from having to reconnect with their VPN, re-start applications or be distracted from the task at hand. Watch the SMECO video case study online to learn how their mobile workforce uses Mobility XE to serve the organization's 150,000 customers.

Locality software serves a vital function for organizations that rely heavily on public cellular networks to connect their mobile field workers to mission-critical applications and information. Its detailed technology performance reports help IT staff expose poor network performance and chronic connectivity problems related to signal strength, location, network saturation, older network technologies, devices, drivers and more. Locality is proven to optimize investments in technology and service contracts while boosting field worker and IT staff productivity.

"Our premise is Docker is not enough. That's not a bad thing - we actually love Docker. At ActiveState all our products are based on open source technology and Docker is an up-and-coming piece of open source technology," explained Bart Copeland, President & CEO of ActiveState Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for applica...
Docker offers a new, lightweight approach to application portability. Applications are shipped using a common container format and managed with a high-level API. Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment. This "containerization" has often been nicknamed "the new virtualization." But containers are more than lightweight virtual machines. Beyond their small...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
