Reliable UC Mobility and Connectivity for Enterprise Customers
San Jose, CA and Frisco, TX, USA - February 18, 2013 - SpiderCloud Wireless, Inc., the leading innovator of scalable small cell Enterprise Radio Access Network (E-RAN) systems for mobile operators, and Tango Networks, a leading technology provider that enables enterprises to embrace the power of Mobile Unified Communications with any mobile phone, today announced that the two companies have been working together to help mobile operators deliver Mobile Unified Communications (Mobile UC) services and advanced PBX functionality over scalable enterprise-class small cell networks.
The growing demand for mobility in the workplace requires a targeted multi-access small cell system that extends connectivity across the enterprise without requiring a special handset or dialer application or by forcing mobile voice to go over Wi-Fi. A scalable system that can provide reliable mobile coverage and capacity inside buildings helps mobile service providers monetize their small cell installations by extending Mobile UC services and providing high quality wireless access to enterprise customers.
SpiderCloud is the first company to offer mobile operators with a true multi-mode access system with 3G, LTE/4G and dual-band Wi-Fi for reliable mobile services indoors for enterprise customers of any size. The E-RAN system consists of a Services Node (SCSN) that is deployed inside the enterprise premise. The SCSN creates one trusted tunnel to the operator's core network and can control over 100 self-organizing and multi-access small cells that can be installed in just days using an enterprise-Ethernet Local Area Network (LAN). SpiderCloud is the only company that supports "soft handover" between radio nodes, which ensures that voice calls and data sessions are not dropped as people move within a building. Aggregating all the radio nodes at the services node layer optimizes backhaul and allows service providers and enterprises to more easily control and manage the system.
When combined with Tango Networks' Small Cell Connect, the joint mobility solution enables mobile operators to provide enterprises with the ability to extend their Mobile UC services and applications, and PBX functionality from their IP telephony network through their small cells as part of the trusted carrier macro-cellular network. The solution extends optimized Mobile UC and PBX functionality and services both inside and outside the enterprise, allowing users to use their mobile phone just like a desk phone.
"We're pleased to work with SpiderCloud to help enable unmatched mobile connectivity and Mobile UC applications for mobile operators and their enterprise customers," said Brenda Boehm, President and CEO of Tango Networks. "Our market-leading Mobile UC applications and extensive PBX integration deliver a truly unique solution that provides the seamless mobility users require to effectively conduct business while on-the-go."
Tango Networks' solution utilizes a secure tunnel created by the SpiderCloud E-RAN to enable an aggregation point for call signaling between macrocells, small cells, and the enterprise IP telephony infrastructure. This allows enterprise employees to use their existing devices to enjoy familiar PBX call and messaging features - such as integrated voice mail, single number, presence and short-digit dialing - for superior mobility and reachability.
"SpiderCloud and Tango Networks' joint development efforts help speed up adoption of mobile operator-led Unified Communications services inside the enterprise," said Michael Gallagher, CEO of SpiderCloud Wireless. "A managed small cell network that provides reliable mobile voice and data access, integrated with the enterprise PBX and IP telephony network, will help enterprise customers save time, money and resources as mobile operators become a trusted partner for mobile services beyond minutes and devices."
SpiderCloud will be attending Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, February 25-28. Interested parties can request a meeting by sending an email to [email protected] or by stopping by the company's meeting room in Hall 2, Room A130.
Tango Networks will also be attending Mobile World Congress. For meeting inquiries, please visit: http://www.tango-networks.com/mobile-world-congress-meeting/
Tango Networks' comprehensive solution gives enterprises the ability to extend Mobile UC and PBX capabilities to their users with a high level of control and management that their IT departments demand. Tango Networks' flexible deployment seamlessly integrates with virtually all IP PBX/Centrex infrastructures, enabling an effective "Bring Your Own Device" (BYOD) policy that reduces the capital burden on employers, while offering the ability to integrate in CPE, hosted or cloud environments.

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.
