NetMotion Wireless Takes Leading Role in Government Use of Mobile Computing

Newly published information reflects growing use of mobile computing in public sector

SEATTLE, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, today released a new white paper entitled "Mobilizing Public Service" which describes the key role played by its award winning mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) Mobility XE(TM) in helping government agencies with their mobile deployments.

Long used in law enforcement, fire response and emergency medical services, mobile deployments are finding their way into other branches of government as equipment and service costs decrease, and governments look for new ways to improve efficiency and productivity. The paper describes some of the uses of mobile computing in areas as diverse as law enforcement and emergency response, health and safety inspections, and child and family services.

The paper also explains the elements of a wireless deployment including devices, software and wireless networks; the various challenges presented by a mobile deployment and how to overcome them; and management concerns and best practices for handling authentication, security, visibility, bandwidth management and other issues.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
