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
