NetMotion Adds Cloud-Based Tool for Troubleshooting Mobile Broadband Issues
Seattle, WA – October 21, 2013 – NetMotion, provider of Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) software, today announced a cloud-based solution that gives enterprises the ability to quickly identify and troubleshoot the root cause of connectivity problems on cellular networks for their mobile workers, greatly enhancing user productivity, reducing costs, ensuring mobile applications work as intended and reducing support time. Locality Cloud is the new hosted version of the industry’s first software to provide detailed visibility into and performance metrics for the mobile broadband networks that companies don’t own or control, something traditional network management solutions can’t do.
The software measures and monitors cellular network performance, applications, devices and users providing IT staff increased visibility into how their mobile deployment is functioning. Locality Cloud gathers and aggregates real-world mobile deployment data from an enterprise’s deployed mobile devices – including tablets, laptops, smartphones and more – making it fast and easy for IT staff to troubleshoot and fix mobile connectivity and performance issues. Consistently rated as one of the top three IT priorities and area of spend by businesses, this cloud-based IT solution is the latest addition to NetMotion’s EMM toolset.
Today’s enterprises increasingly rely on employee mobility as a critical business function, yet even with significant numbers of deployed devices and mobile applications, IT staff have no visibility into how they or the networks that connect them are performing. These deployments are also becoming more diverse, incorporating a variety of devices, operating systems, carriers and adapters.
“Providing enterprise mobility management solutions means providing tools to regain measurability and manageability of networks you don’t own or control but require to run your business. Locality makes cellular just as measurable and manageable as an in-house wired or Wi-Fi network. By offering on-site and cloud-based versions of Locality, we’ve addressed customer requests for a hosted solution and we’re now better able to meet the needs of every kind of enterprise.”
Locality Cloud adds a powerful element to an overall EMM solution that companies need to stay competitive and successful in today’s increasingly mobile market. Along with NetMotion Mobility®, software that serves as the central control point for mobile deployments, Locality allows companies to get detailed visibility into cellular networks that traditional network management solutions can’t provide. Together, Mobility and Locality provide a full EMM solution to ensure companies get the most out of their mobile investments.
Locality Cloud is available through a subscription-based pricing model and delivers all the powerful capabilities of the classic on-site version, but without its capital expense. Locality Cloud is NetMotion’s entry into one of the fastest-growing segments in IT, cloud computing, a market expected to eclipse $107 billion in 2017.
