NetMotion Wireless announced at DistribuTECH that a number of major utility organizations in North America, including three of the five largest energy providers, rely on Mobility XE to securely connect mobile workers to mission-critical applications.
Together, NetMotion Wireless and the company's 92 investor-owned, municipal and cooperative utility customers across the U.S and Canada keep service flowing to nearly 100 million electric, gas, waste and water service patrons.
"Mobility XE helps our field employees access vital databases and information whenever and wherever they are," said Sundaram Ananthakrishnan, Enterprise Portfolio Architect at Southern California Edison. "This allows our employees to have more reliable, near real-time data. This helps employees work and better serve our customers."
SCE serves more than 14 million customers in 180 cities in central, coastal and Southern California. The energy provider's more than 50,000 square mile service territory includes more than 285,000 businesses.
Mobility XE is client/server software specifically built for wireless environments. It helps utility employees maintain and secure their data connections as they move in and out of wireless coverage areas and roam between networks. For the utilities NetMotion Wireless serves, Mobility XE delivers mobile data connection for field workers as they traverse service territories and require quick, uninterrupted access to operations systems, customer information and other applications from the computers in their fleet vehicles.
Mobility XE prevents workers, such as those at Southern Maryland Electric Cooperative (SMECO), from having to reconnect with their VPN, re-start applications or spend time opening help desk tickets.
NetMotion Wireless develops software to manage, secure and optimize wireless data deployments for organizations with mobile field workers.
