Smith Micro partners with In Motion Technology for wireless connectivity
Oct 31, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Smith Micro Software, Inc., a developer of mobile software products and services, has partnered with In Motion Technology, a provider of mobile networking systems, to deliver secure wireless connectivity for both in-vehicle and hand-held mobile devices used by public safety agencies.
The combination of Smith Micro's QuickLink Mobility connection management software and In Motion's onBoard Connection Manager software will provide First Responders with timely access to critical information that saves lives.
In Motion Technology provides mobile enterprise network technology that enables mission-critical workforces to securely connect to the enterprise network using a rugged wireless router in and around their vehicles.
Smith Micro provides connection management software that extends this reach by allowing users to take their mobile devices beyond the limits of the in-vehicle router while still maintaining reliable and secure connectivity with their 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi networks. The combined solution provides broader, more consistent mobile connections for First Responders who can't afford to waste time reconnecting devices due to inconsistent network coverage.
"In Motion offers market leading technology that helps mission-critical workforces, such as law enforcement officers, to stay reliably connected to in-vehicle network access points, and we provide comparable technology for hand-carried devices that often leave the vehicle, such as laptops and tablets. This seamless connectivity to mission critical applications is vital to first responders when every second counts," said Daniel Rawlings, Chief Strategy Officer at Smith Micro. "Our partnership with In Motion will give an advantage to public safety agencies who want enhanced command and control of their network connectivity."
Smith Micro's QuickLink Mobility solution is available on Windows mobile devices. Specific benefits of the integrated solution for public safety agencies include: secure connection management that is carrier-agnostic, with the ability to hide unauthorized networks; enforced connection to In Motion Wi-Fi as the primary network for user devices; seamless and automatic transition to authorized WWAN or other authorized network when In Motion Wi-Fi is out of range; Single-sign-on (SSO) and Connect-before-login (CBL) features to simplify access and reduce the risk of password failures; and fully configurable to provide enhanced command and control over mobile devices.
