InnoPath Extends Mobile Device Management to WiMAX

InnoPath Software, which provides Mobile Device Management (MDM) systems to leading global operators, has extended its iMDM mobile device management suite to include support for WiMAX devices. This new support enables WiMAX operators to meet consumer expectations for broadband wireless by provisioning new WiMAX devices as subscribers sign up on the network. The MDM platform then enables Customer Care and Enterprise Care capabilities to provide remote device management that includes firmware and software updates delivered automatically by the network.

InnoPath said it pursuing a network-agnostic MDM evolution strategy, as previously its iMDM was the only MDM server supporting CDMA and GSM from the same platform.

InnoPath's iMDM suite is already deployed by leading Tier-1 CDMA and GSM operators globally and WiMAX is the just the first broadband wireless protocol that the company will support. The company is also applying its proven operational expertise to assist operators through WiMAX deployment issues such as roaming between networks.

Future extensions to InnoPath's leading iMDM Server Suite will include LTE and support for Fixed Mobile Convergence through Converged Device Management

InnoPath also announced that it has joined the WiMAX Forum.
