Smith Micro Gains Access to a Network of more than 1500 Agents through one of the United States' Largest Telecom Brokers to Distribute QuickLink Mobile Enterprise
ALISO VIEJO, CA - Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), a company that markets and develops a wide range of software products and services for the wireless market, announced its new partnership with Manage Mobility, one of the nation's leading business solution providers and leading resellers of Sprint Telecommunication Services, to distribute QuickLink® Mobile Enterprise. Smith Micro's QuickLink® Mobile Enterprise application, which is a mobility connection manager for mobile workstations, supports the broadest possible range of Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWANs) spanning nearly 200 broadband-wireless carrier networks globally. The software application also seamlessly supports Wi-Fi networks, as well as the latest in 802.1x security protocols for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs).
As wireless use increases within domestic and international companies and within government agencies, IT managers are faced with the nearly impossible task of overseeing employee wireless access from many different sources. Each enterprise company can use a multitude of different wireless carriers, network connections, and wireless devices in providing remote access connectivity for their mobile workforce. In response to this increasing administrative demand and need for wireless security compliance, QuickLink Mobile Enterprise provides IT managers with a single-point access for controlling, customizing, and automating secure wireless connections enterprise-wide.
"Partnering with Manage Mobility is an important step in expanding our channel strategy for delivering enterprise-class mobile solutions," said Chris Lippincott, Vice President of Enterprise Sales for Smith Micro Software. "Our rapidly growing client list indicates a growing need for our solution in the enterprise space. Our commitment to providing a tailored solution for enterprises that demand secure wireless connections for their mobile workforce and Manage Mobility's dedication to providing superior customer service is an excellent fit that mirrors our business model."
The advanced administration and security features of QuickLink Mobile Enterprise provide today's large organizations with true configuration control. The IT manager concerned with security can lock and hide rights to the application's features, set defaults for user preferences, track wireless network usage and costs, and create custom reports such as employee usage with IntelliTracker™.
"The efficient design of QuickLink Mobile Enterprise uniquely supports multiple wireless carriers and a broad array of mobile devices, so it tremendously enhances Manage Mobility's strategic mobility solution initiative," said Mike McGuire, Senior Partner at Manage Mobility. "We are already beginning to deploy QuickLink Mobile Enterprise within our financial and government customer segments."
Smith Micro develops innovative communications software for the wireless industry. Its leading-edge products simplify communications access over both Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWANs) and Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs), and its compression technology, StuffIt, has been established as an industry standard. Over 5 million licenses of Smith Micro's QuickLink Mobile technology have been shipped in just the last several years, making QuickLink Mobile the preferred choice of carriers and end-users alike.
