One Solution, One Vendor: Wavelink Avalanche Enables Mobile Task Workers Regardless of Device Type or Operating System

SALT LAKE CITY - March 26, 2014 - To support the management of an increasing variety of mobile devices ranging from consumer iOS, Android and Windows devices to rugged mobile computers, Wavelink today announced the newest version of its enterprise mobility management software, Avalanche.

There are two types of mission-critical users in the enterprise: the operational task worker, who uses the traditional ruggedized devices, and the customer-facing task worker for whom companies are evaluating a wider spectrum of device options—which includes consumer devices. Deployed in an on-premise configuration or through the cloud, Avalanche 6.0 secures and manages all types of devices and enables access to the data and applications needed for both front and back room work. With just a single solution, workers efficiency and productivity is maximized.

"The device landscape of the mobile workforce has become increasingly fragmented, with consumer devices working alongside mission critical, ruggedized devices," said Stephen Brown, Director of Product Management at Wavelink. "Although the devices have become more varied, all task workers still need access to the same sets of information, whether they work in the warehouse, retail floor or in the field. With Avalanche 6.0, IT professionals can enable task workers to use the appropriate devices, without compromising security or the access to the data and applications workers need to perform their jobs."

"While many vendors have expanded their solution range and have productized "holistic" end-to-end mobility solutions, many rely heavily on partners to fill the gaps in their product portfolios, and do not possess truly integrated mobility solutions," says Eric Klein, senior analyst, mobile software for VDC. "An integrated approach is most effective in managing the complexity that comes with expanding mobile deployments, particularly those that have diverse deployment environments where several mobile technologies are being leveraged. Such an approach can not only yield operational advantages for IT, but can enable a comprehensive and unified IT management solution that combines a broad set of device agnostic management features with network monitoring and enterprise-grade security."

As part of the Wavelink Mobile Enterprise Productivity Suite, Avalanche 6.0 is a deeply integrated mobility solution that interacts with all Wavelink solutions, including application streaming and voice-enabled applications. This gives IT professionals the ability to manage mobile devices, applications and data from the warehouse to the front room using one solution. With the Wavelink Mobile Enterprise Productivity Suite, enterprises gain a solution that takes them through the entire lifecycle of a mobile deployment and the growing day-to-day needs of the enterprise. With Avalanche 6.0 organizations see an increase in productivity and efficiency of both mobile task workers and the IT professionals that support them.

Wavelink Avalanche 6.0 features:
- One solution for managing mobile devices for both task and knowledge workers
- The easiest way to manage Wavelink Terminal Emulation, Velocity and Speakeasy-enabled mobile users
- Redesigned Avalanche console for a better user experience
- Simplified creation of deployment packages
- Package Builder 6.0 (for rugged mobile computers) - allows users to track templates and builds for future reference and revision
- On-premise and cloud-based deployment options

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
Security, data privacy, reliability and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house client hosted environments to a cloud platform. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Vandana Viswanathan, Associate Director at Cognizant, In this session, will provide an orientation to the five stages required to implement a cloud hosted solution validation strategy.
The security needs of IoT environments require a strong, proven approach to maintain security, trust and privacy in their ecosystem. Assurance and protection of device identity, secure data encryption and authentication are the key security challenges organizations are trying to address when integrating IoT devices. This holds true for IoT applications in a wide range of industries, for example, healthcare, consumer devices, and manufacturing. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Lancen LaChance, vic...
With the proliferation of both SQL and NoSQL databases, organizations can now target specific fit-for-purpose database tools for their different application needs regarding scalability, ease of use, ACID support, etc. Platform as a Service offerings make this even easier now, enabling developers to roll out their own database infrastructure in minutes with minimal management overhead. However, this same amount of flexibility also comes with the challenges of picking the right tool, on the right ...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
Security, data privacy, reliability, and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house, client-hosted environments to a cloud platform. Quality assurance plays a vital role in ensuring that the appropriate level of risk assessment, verification, and validation takes place to ensure business continuity during the migration to a new cloud platform.

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
