MetTel Chooses AirWatch as Partner for Mobile Device Management

Offers MDM Bundled With MetTel Nationwide Mobile Service

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - Metropolitan Telecommunications (MetTel) today announced the selection of AirWatch, a recognized leader in mobile device security and management, to power MetTel 's Mobile Device Management (MDM) service. MetTel is offering MDM at no charge with certain MetTel Nationwide Mobile Service packages.

"Corporate IT managers are facing new mobile device management challenges as companies convert from BlackBerry handsets to iPhones and smartphones," said Max Silber, MetTel's director of wireless services. "MetTel's wireless services provide an economical and effective alternative to companies looking to save on their wireless service and to maintain a high level of security and control over all their mobile devices, including those owned by employees (BYOD).

"Our offering is backed up by the best operations and customer service team in the industry and, unlike other offerings in the marketplace, MetTel MDM is included at no extra charge with certain MetTel wireless service packages. The savings from bundled MDM alone can amount to as much at $1,000 a month for a company with a mobile workforce of 200," Silber said.

For companies looking to reduce support costs and business risks for an increasingly mobile workforce, MetTel MDM, powered by AirWatch, provides the ability to quickly enroll devices, configure and update device settings over-the-air, enforce security policies and compliance, secure mobile access to corporate resources, and remotely lock and wipe managed devices. The MetTel MDM solution is available across all wireless networks, operating systems and devices.

MetTel offers a number of nationwide options and packages that make it simple for businesses to save on mobile services. The company's end-to-end mobile life cycle management includes everything from technology alignment and rate plan optimization to device recycling.

In addition to mobile device management, within the last few months, the company also has introduced MetTel Mobile Integration, a unified communications solution, which converges wireline and wireless phones to give employees a uniform experience inside and outside the office; and MetTel Wireless Backup, a fixed wireless solution that ensures that data traffic is automatically redirected to a secure, reliable wireless network when primary circuits fail.

"At MetTel our word is our bond. We keep our promise to provide customers with a simple, secure and manageable platform to unify wireless and wireline services within their IT infrastructures," said MetTel CEO Marshall Aronow. "Our MetOne Portal is the secret sauce that brings together every product and service, from every carrier for every size customer, and enables clients to manage expenditures from one simple, easy to use interface."
