SEATTLE, Wash., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NetMotion Wireless, a leading provider of mobile productivity and management software, today announced that the County of San Diego has deployed NetMotion Wireless Mobility XE mobile VPN in departments within all five County business groups: Land Use and Environment, Health and Human Services, Public Safety, Finance and General Government and Community Services (which includes the Registrar of Voters and the San Diego County Public Libraries).
San Diego County is the 5th largest county in the US by population and provides public safety, health and justice services to 3 million residents. The County is responsible for covering over 4000 square miles with public safety, transportation and other government services.
"The diverse geography of San Diego makes it a challenge to hold onto a wireless data connection," said Chief Information Officer Harold Tuck. "Prior to NetMotion Wireless, our applications would often lock or freeze when a signal was lost. Since the installation our applications have performed very well and our personnel are able to stay productive – wherever they happen to be providing service."
San Diego joins a large number of law enforcement and government agencies across the country that rely on Mobility XE to mitigate some of the most common challenges in mobile deployments, including end-to-end security, application stability, and seamless roaming between Wi-Fi and wide-area cellular networks.
"For productivity of an information worker, it is important that the data connection simply works, and that even when coverage is temporarily lost, their computing needs continue to be met," said Andy Willett, senior vice president of sales and marketing, NetMotion Wireless. "Even across a large and diverse geography like San Diego County, our Mobile VPN is able to increase the performance of wireless networks and the workers that utilize them."
More than 60 percent of the nation's largest public safety organizations now use NetMotion Wireless to maintain secure and stable wireless data communications for their mobile field deployments. Other law enforcement agencies that rely on NetMotion Wireless, include: the Los Angeles Police Department, Santa Barbara County, the Texas Department of Public Safety, the City of Las Vegas, the State of Illinois, the Florida Highway Patrol, Fairfax County Police Department, and hundreds of others worldwide.
