Symbol Mobility Services Suite accelerates deployments, expedites problem resolution and delivers extended control of mobile devices and wireless networks

  • 21 May, 2004 15:36

<p>Melbourne, 21st May, 2004 - Symbol Technologies, The Enterprise Mobility Company, today introduced a completely scalable mobility services platform designed to deploy, manage and support enterprise wireless infrastructure and mobile devices, and enable mobile applications. With this new services platform, Symbol is uniquely positioned to provide all the components necessary for a complete end-to-end enterprise mobility solution. Customers can now capture, move, and manage critical information to the point of business activity - increasing control for IT professionals.</p>
<p>Targeted at enterprises that have or are considering an enterprise mobility deployment, the Symbol Mobility Services Suite (MSS) dramatically decreases the time it takes to deploy a complex mobile infrastructure. By increasing the visibility of mobile devices and wireless network performance, IT administrators can identify and resolve problems before they occur.</p>
<p>"Symbol's MSS platform is the glue that ties together the new mobile edge - allowing customers to capture and move information in a seamless, secure way," said Lee Williams, vice president and general manager of Symbol's mobility software division. "We have worked very closely with our customers and partners to develop a framework that addresses the issues and pain points they face today, as well as new ones they will face in the future. Management is often an afterthought for other vendors deploying new technologies - but at Symbol, it is a cornerstone of our enterprise mobility system."</p>
<p>The Symbol Mobility Services Suite consists of three components:<br/>
- Mobility Services Platform (MSP)<br/>
- Mobility Services Agents (MSAs); and<br/>
- MSS Studio</p>
<p>The MSP is a rack-mountable appliance that provides server-side control of deployments by communicating with MSAs resident on all Symbol mobile devices and systems. This enables mobile device and wireless network management and monitoring, including discovery, remote control, configuration, provisioning and troubleshooting. Symbol developed MSAs to collect monitoring and asset information for the MSP and to facilitate better control over applications, devices, and networks.</p>
<p>The MSS Studio enables application developers to create new and extend existing back-end applications to a large variety of mobile computing devices over WLAN, GPRS and other networks, while offering a visual programming environment that empowers developers to focus on rich transactional applications. MSS Studio is built on open standards such as J2EE and Web services. Future versions will include SDKs for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET and .NET Compact Framework, in addition to Eclipse and other Java Integrated Development Environments (IDEs).</p>
<p>The Symbol Mobility Services Suite was designed to be extensible so that Symbol Business Partners can easily add their value-added management modules to the system for industry-specific control and flexibility. This modular and standards-based platform approach can accommodate emerging mobility services, including voice over IP, security, and RFID.</p>
<p>The Symbol MSS is also designed to easily integrate with existing enterprise network management solutions, such as IBM Tivoli, HP OpenView and CA Unicenter, and supports interaction through standard networking protocols.</p>
