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.

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...

The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...

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.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
