Newbury and PanGo Collaborate on WLAN Location Technologies

Newbury Networks is collaborating with PanGo Networks to deliver a third-party location application on the Newbury Location Appliance.

Newbury Networks enables enterprises to locate, manage and secure applications running over wireless LANs (WLANs). PanGo offers an application that can be powered by Newbury's Location Appliance, enabling users to locate any 802.11-based device across a wide range of WLAN infrastructures including 3Com, Aruba, Cisco, Nortel, Symbol and Trapeze.

Newbury is using PanGo's open Provider Interface to deliver location information to the PanOS Platform and PanGo Locator running in any of these diverse wireless network environments.

Newbury said a new class of mobile enterprise applications fueled by location continues to gain momentum in vertical markets such as healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, retail and government.
