Smith Micro and In Motion Technology Partner to Provide End-to-End Connection 
Management for Public Safety 
Smith Micro's QuickLink Mobility Extends Capabilities of In Motion
In-Vehicle Routers, Ensuring Secure, Reliable Wireless Connections
for First Responders 
ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/24/13 --   Smith Micro
Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) today announced the company has
partnered with In Motion Technology, a leader in mobile enterprise
networks, to deliver secure, reliable wireless connectivity for both
in-vehicle and hand-held mobile devices used by public safety
agencies. The combination of Smith Micro's QuickLink(R) 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. 
"Many public safety communications operations are finding in-vehicle
routers an optimal solution to support a wide array of devices being
deployed in first responder vehicles. Tight integration between
laptop connection managers and an in-vehicle network access point
means first responders gain flexibility with ease-of-use. By allowing
laptops to move in and out of an in-vehicle coverage area, first
responders maintain access to high quality, cost effective network
resources required to deliver on an agency's mission," said Yankee
Group Principal Analyst Ken Rehbehn.  
"In Motion Technology's system transforms our customers' vehicles
into secure, reliable mobile hotspots. In order to better serve first
responders, we found a partner that would complement our existing
technology, and extend our connection management capabilities outside
of the vehicle," said Tony Morris, Vice President of Sales and
Marketing, In Motion Technology. "Considering their extensive
experience in carrier-grade connection management solutions, and
proven deployments with public safety agencies, Smith Micro makes an
ideal partner."  
"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
--  Fully configurable to provide enhanced command and control over mobile
    devices

  
QuickLink Mobility is part of Smith Micro's Enterprise Mobility
platform that helps a wide variety of commercial and public sector
organizations to regain command and control over mobile devices and
wireless connectivity, particularly for BYOD environments. For more
