NetMotion Wireless and Sierra Wireless Collaborate on Field Service

NetMotion Wireless and Sierra Wireless have announced a joint marketing agreement to deliver secure, reliable mobile communications solutions to keep mobile workers connected, improve their effectiveness, and help ensure their safety.

This announcement formalizes a collaboration that has already delivered mobile data solutions for public safety and field service customers, including Con Edison, Dominion Resources, Philadelphia Gas Works, Kansas City Power & Light, Miami Dade County, and Orange County California.

Sierra Wireless provides a portfolio of mobile computing and M2M solutions, including mobile broadband modems, embedded modules, and intelligent gateways and routers. NetMotion Wireless Mobility XE is a comprehensive mobile VPN solution that maintains secure and reliable connections for devices as they transition between networks and encounter coverage gaps throughout the working day. The combined solutions are used by organizations where secure, remote access to a mobile workforce is mission-critical.

The combined Sierra Wireless and NetMotion Wireless solutions optimize mobile cellular session persistence and continuity between coverage areas and locations with poor reception. This enables smooth hand-offs between 3G cellular, 802.11 Wi-Fi and private radio networks, providing field personnel with seamless roaming. The security features incorporated in the Sierra Wireless products and software, and NetMotion Wireless Mobility XE, simplify and unify security compliance with state and federal mandates.
