NetMotion Mobility Dramatically Enhances Scalability and Global Reach for Enterprise Mobile Workforces

NetMotion Wireless, Inc. announced the release of Mobility 11, offering up to twice as fast data throughput performance and significantly enhanced server scalability to support thousands of authenticated users per server. This latest release also dramatically expands NetMotion's global reach by adding five additional languages to better meet the needs of workforces everywhere. In addition to English, Mobility client software is available in Japanese, French, Italian, German, and Spanish effectively extending NetMotion software to enterprises in over 130 countries with languages spoken by over 2.6 billion people. With Mobility 11, NetMotion also expands operating system coverage to include OS X, making the company's software available across all major mobile and desktop platforms. Enhanced Scalability: A Mobility 11 server is up to twice as fast and allows 10,000 authenticated users per-server, six times more than previous releases. In addition to improving server efficiency, the increases in throughput and capacity offer Mobility system administrators the following advantages: Lower operating costs by using off-the-shelf or virtualized server hardware, or private or public cloud infrastructure instead of costly, proprietary hardware appliances. Servers and pools support significantly greater peak traffic loads. Deployments can be simplified by reducing the number of servers while maintaining capacity or accelerated by adding servers. New support for Mac users: With the addition of Mac support, organizations have greater flexibility to support mobile workers using any major operating system platform.
