InnoPath announced that EMOBILE has selected their Integrated Mobile Device Management Solution (iMDM) to deliver over-the-air firmware updates and configuration management. EMOBILE will be deploying InnoPath’s Firmware Manager allowing for software and firmware updates, in addition to offering its Configuration Manager enabling remote configuration of settings and new services; both applications being offered over-the-air, in real time. With this announcement, the company now has agreements tied with KDDI, Softbank, and eMobile and license agreements with several of the handset manufacturers which are sold under the DoCoMo brand.
According to the company press release:
Combining a server and client solution, InnoPath’s iMDM Suite permits operators to transition MDM from an exception-based model to a service intrinsic to their daily operations. InnoPath is the clear leader in mobile device management in Japan, securing a 90% share in the most advanced mobile data services market
“EMOBILE’s decision to deploy a true Integrated MDM solution is evidence of the strategic role they see for MDM going forward”, said John Fazio, CEO of InnoPath. “Their selection of InnoPath’s extensible solution paves the way for them to quickly add additional features as the market evolves.”
InnoPath will be demonstrating its iMDM server and device solutions at the CTIA Wireless Expo on March 27-29th in Orlando, Florida, USA.
