Wavelink to Unveil Device Management Support for iPhones, iPads and Android at NRF Annual Conference

Support for Apple iOS and Android Platforms Allows Smartphones to Be Managed Through Same Console as All Mobile Devices in a Company's Wireless Ecosystem

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 10, 2011) - NRF Annual Convention & Expo, Booth #2059 -- Wavelink Corporation (www.wavelink.com) today announced support for managing Apple iOS* devices -- such as iPhones* and iPads* -- and Android* devices will be available at the end of Q1 2011. The Wavelink® Avalanche® management console and interface for these devices will be demonstrated at the National Retail Federation Conference in New York this week.

Wavelink Avalanche provides centralized configuration, deployment and management of mobile devices and wireless infrastructure across local and wide area networks. With its next update, the software will provide comprehensive support for Apple iOS and Android devices through the same central console as mobile devices based on Windows Mobile*, Windows CE*, Palm OS* and DOS operating systems along with embedded OS devices, printers, RFID readers, access points, switches and many other wireless devices.

"The use of smartphones in retail operations is growing, and our customers are looking to manage them now alongside their rugged mobile devices," said Lamar Van Wagenen, Wavelink president and CEO. "Wavelink is making this possible with support for Apple and Android devices to be followed later in the year with Blackberry* devices. Our customers have great flexibility in the devices they use as we offer device and infrastructure management for the widest range of devices and platforms on the market."

Providing sales associates with better tools for customer interaction remains a key priority for retailers, and smartphone and tablet devices are becoming more widely used on retail floors and in warehouses. As retailers adopt these new devices, they also need to ensure that they are accessed and utilized properly. With Wavelink Avalanche, they can be managed and secured so that employees are more efficient and sensitive corporate data is kept secure.
