Wavelink Corporation has released a new version of its mobile device management and wireless infrastructure management software, Wavelink Avalanche 5.2.
The newly announced Wavelink Avalanche 5.2 offers a comprehensive, vendor-agnostic management solution for the wireless enterprise with enhancements to the feature set.
It also provides deeper support for multi-tenancy to support hosted solutions including software-as-a-service and managed services.
Avalanche 5.2 has several new capabilities that allow it to provide further sophistication in terms of reporting, organizing devices, security, location-based services and two-way messaging between an administrator and device user.
Company officials said that the architecture changes provide the path for better integration with smartphone and tablet support, Avalanche Managed Services and Avalanche On Demand.
“With this version of Avalanche, we are taking the most comprehensive, fully-featured mobile device management solution and providing enhancements for ease of use as well as more advanced location and permission management within the product,” said Peter Cannon, senior product manager for Wavelink, in a press release.
“No matter the combination of rugged devices, smartphones, tablets, wireless access points or other wireless devices, Avalanche enables organizations to manage them through a central console to reduce costs and improve productivity.”
Support for new firmware and devices including Aruba 3000 series devices, various Aruba APs and Motorola (News - Alert) AP650 are also added by Wavelink Avalanche 5.2.
Owing to the internationalization of the product, it is possible for the web-based administration console to be localized into the languages needed by customers around the world.
By providing centralized configuration, deployment and management of mobile devices and wireless infrastructure, Wavelink Avalanche is able to improve the productivity of mobile workers, increase network security and reduce the total cost associated with owning and managing mobile devices and peripherals.
