NetMotion Wireless Announces Industry’s First and Only Cellular Network Performance Management Software
NetMotion Wireless Delivers Industry’s First Cellular Network Performance Management Software
With a View Into the Cellular Networks Mobile Field Workers use Every Day, Organizations Can Troubleshoot Issues and Optimize Wireless Investments
SEATTLE, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — NetMotion Wireless, provider of software to secure, manage and optimize an organization’s mobile data deployment, announced today the general availability of Locality, the industry’s first and only cellular network performance management software. Locality gives organizations the visibility and insight needed to optimize their mobile data deployments. It is the only cellular counterpart to a wired network performance management offering, providing the detailed device, network and application reporting organizations need to proactively identify coverage issues, troubleshoot helpdesk tickets, make performance-based buying decisions, effectively track and manage all deployed devices, and more.
“When one of our field agents tells us they’re having a connection or coverage issue in the field, we need to be able to quickly fix the situation,” said Greg Saugy, Sr. Network Operations Specialist at Amica Insurance. “Locality’s performance information helps us get to the root of the problem fast. Minimizing an employee’s downtime is essential to keeping our customers happy.”
Many organizations have come to rely heavily on public cellular networks to connect their mobile field workers to mission-critical applications and information. These same organizations have made significant investments in devices, applications and monthly service fees in order to make these cellular deployments a reality. Yet, these same organizations have no tools with which to evaluate how those deployments are working for them, or to proactively and methodically identify problems that are causing connectivity related issues. They have to rely on anecdotal information collected from their mobile field workers to make important decisions about their deployment.
Locality changes all of that by providing detailed business intelligence reports based on an organization’s unique deployment. For the first time, organizations can make fact-based decisions on how best to optimize their investment in cellular. Locality delivers:
Unmatched Mobile Visibility and Insights – Locality offers real-world data coverage maps based on field worker experiences. It generates detailed device, network and application reports and exposes poor network performance and chronic connectivity problems related to signal strength, location, network saturation, older network technologies, devices, drivers, and other factors.
Enhanced Wireless Control and Management – Organizations can reduce wireless deployment expenditures by identifying under-utilized or unused mobile assets. IT staff can compare and select carriers based on real performance data from their field users and choose the computing devices and data networking cards that provide the highest productivity. A recent 13-city 3G and 4G wireless speed study covered in PC World illustrates the performance inconsistency and variability of today’s most popular carriers.
Increased Mobile Worker Productivity – Field staff are more productive when they have access to the best coverage, fastest network technologies and best performing modems. IT staff spend less time troubleshooting with access to real user data. In addition, customers receive better service when mobile employees are more productive.
“Any organization with a mobile workforce is becoming highly reliant on cellular networks,” said Bob Hunsberger, president and CEO of NetMotion Wireless. “Their field employees rely on these networks to be productive in their jobs. Yet an enormous barrier exists between IT staff and the cellular networks their employees use every day: the staff can’t analyze and monitor the performance of deployed devices and applications on these networks. Locality delivers this insight so organizations can optimize mobile data deployments to increase employee productivity, make the right business decisions, and maximize their return on investment.”
NetMotion Wireless introduced Locality to a select group of its existing customers beginning late last year – and now, having seen many successful deployments, is introducing the product to the broader market.
