"After years of industry promises, the era of mobile computing as an essential part of mission-critical enterprise operations is finally here," said Hunsberger. "Wireless data networks are ready, devices have matured and, as our customer growth demonstrates, enterprise demand is there. I joined NetMotion Wireless because their software is the best in the industry and I believe their solution is part of the engine that will propel enterprise adoption of mobile computing."
Strong enterprise sales efforts by cellular carriers, maturing wireless technologies, and increased enterprise demand for field-worker productivity are driving greater demand for mobility management solutions. Today, tens of thousands of mobile workers use Mobility XE to get connected and stay connected to mission-critical applications over wireless networks. Mobility XE solves essential problems of application access and performance, network security and centralized management of complex, multi-network mobile computing deployments.
