1.1 Introduction of Nimbuzz
Nimbuzz is a mobile social messenger combining instant messaging, (geo) presence, and VoIP across popular
communities, including Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, GoogleTalk, AIM, and
social networks including Facebook and MySpace. The free application, designed for the hyper-connected
lifestyle, is available on the mobile, web and PC, for instant messaging, location sharing, (group) calling, file
sharing, and chat rooms – from one contact list.

Nimbuzz offers 3 core technologies: VoIP calling, (geo) presence, and social instant messaging.
1.VoIP Calling:
•Internet/VoIP calling to community buddies: on 2.5, 3G, and Wi-Fi networks
•Dial-Up VoIP (local dial-in number connects to VoIP server) in 50+ countries: for GPRS/EDGE networks
•SIP calling allows for cheap (international) mobile and landline calls

2.Geo Presence: Locate your Friends - Share your location and retrieve the location of your buddies on a
map. Great for arranging face to face meetings.

3.Social Instant Messaging: Simultaneously connect with Skype, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Windows
Live Messenger (MSN), Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ, GoogleTalk, AIM, MobileMe, Jabber, StudiVZ, Hyves, and
GaduGadu. Also, update your status/personal message and display picture for select communities via
Nimbuzz.

Buzz Alert: If buddies are offline, let them know you’re trying to get in touch by sending a "Buzz". It will
start Nimbuzz Mobile on their mobile phone. Patented feature.

Convergence: Allows mobile, web/wap, and PC access. Nimbuzz supports over 1000 types of Symbian Series
60, Java, Windows Mobile, iPhone and Blackberry devices.

Contact Manager: The Phonebook backs up and restores your contacts. This comes in handy if you end up
losing your mobile phone.

1.2 Features or characteristics of Nimbuzz
Our mantra of "Mobile Freedom" is seen in all our products.
Nimbuzz is accessible for free from every known internet touch-point: web, wap, mobile, pc, and widget.
Nimbuzz aggregates all the popular existing communication tools into a one-stop centralized Nimbuzz address
book including mobile operator internet service, social and IM network features. Nimbuzz works on around
1000 types of mobile phones worldwide and supports EDGE, GPRS, 3G and Wi-Fi so users will always be

                                          WBI Awards 2009


able to connect.
Innovative features include:
•One centralized, feature rich contact list
•The Communicator Widget - empowers friends and non-Nimbuzz users to access the platform for free to
call, chat, message, BUZZ and more from any computer and web browser directly to a Nimbuzz user’s mobile
phone
•The patented "BUZZ" feature alerts an offline Nimbuzz user that someone wants him online, then
auto-launches the mobile client.
•Dial-Up VOIP feature enables international calls at local rates, if VOIP via 3G/WiFi is unavailable
•New feature releases include iPhone client with landscape chat capability, real-time personal status
messages, and VoIP.

Our convergence of internet services distinctly bridges the mobile digital divide. Nimbuzz appeals to nations
starting to expand internet usage from PC to mobile alongside those that have jumped to mobile internet usage
without PC.

1.3 Principal benefits of Nimbuzz to operators/users

• all-in-one mobile communication ((conference) calling, (group) chat/chat rooms, (geo) presence, file sharing
in one contact list)
• from any device (we work on over 1000 types of handsets on virtually any platform)
• from anywhere (we offer VoIP for all networks, providing dial-in numbers in over 50 countries)
• to any community (we work with the most IM and social communities as well as local social networks)
• for free (we are completely free to download and use)

Nimbuzz is an independent specialist, well-funded by smart money, hands-on investors with the right
distribution and revenue generating partnerships with local and global social networks, operators and handset
manufacturers; announcements are imminent. Nimbuzz is a free mass market product focused on solving
customer needs and industry wants.

                                           WBI Awards 2009


We have the richest set of features on the most platforms for the most devices, regional and local community
support, including arguably the highest quality and most sophisticated international VoIP service.

1.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Nimbuzz
The WirelessDesignAsia’s “The Mobile World in 2013” market study is one of the many sources that display
the impact mobile internet will continue to have to drive VAS and operator revenues. By 2010, global operator
revenues are forecasted to reach $1 trillion. Global voice revenues are forecast to grow only 10% compared to
data revenues (including messaging) at 79% in the next 5 years. – of which, 52% of data revenues will
originate from developing markets. Skint Tariffs also mentions that mobile penetration is already 2.1 billion in
34 emerging countries, and that this number should increase to 4.3 billion by 2013.

Nimbuzz drives data traffic and acts as value-added service to operators and key differentiators for handset
manufacturers.

Because we are motivated by consumer behavior and business opportunities in technology, we have designed
an advertising and revenue-sharing partnerships-based business model.

Our focus in 2009 will be on realizing the resulting revenue opportunity. For us, revenue will start coming-in
through our strategic partnerships with mobile manufacturers (Spice, Toshiba, RIM), operators and social
networking sites (studiVZ, Giovani).

Ads will appear when you log-in but there will also be traditional and non-traditional online advertising
opportunities when accessing Nimbuzz on the PC or web (including widgets).

      2. Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 – WiMAX outdoor CPE with integrated VoIP


Awards category:           Best VoIP Product or Service
Company:                   Motorola, Inc
Vote stats:                Total: 21    Average: 4.2


2.1 Introduction of Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 – WiMAX outdoor CPE with
integrated VoIP
Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 is a compact WiMAX 802.16e outdoor CPE with integrated VoIP that lets
operators extend their coverage areas while reducing infrastructure and support (CAPEX and OPEX) costs,
enhancing service to end-users in both urban and remote regions.

2.2 Features or characteristics of Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 – WiMAX outdoor CPE
with integrated VoIP
Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 is a compact WiMAX 802.16e outdoor CPE with integrated VoIP that lets
operators extend their coverage areas while reducing infrastructure and support (CAPEX and OPEX) costs,
enhancing service to end-users in both urban and remote regions. The CPEo 450 consists of an outdoor
subscriber unit with integrated antennas and an indoor power adapter incorporating an RJ45 Ethernet port and
two RJ11 voice ports. All network configuration parameters come pre-loaded. When turned on, the network
will automatically detect the CPEo 450 and perform all necessary authentication processes, allowing
subscribers to immediately begin using voice and data services. The CPEo 450 integrates VoIP functionality
directly into the unit – a unique feature that provides a more simple installation and improved reliability.
Additional benefits include a higher quality of service for voice, decreased external ATA interoperability test
needs and decreased cost of having multiple boxes.

As an outdoor WiMAX CPE with data and VoIP access ports, the CPEo 450 provides an effective solution to
home networking needs, even in cell edge areas. The unit has integrated multiple antennas, no moving parts
and advanced ventilation to improve the lifespan of the device. With VoIP integrated into the device, there is
only a single “intelligent box” in the device, avoiding the need for a separate ATA box and the potential for
multiple points of failure. This is important because failures can cause increased support calls, truck rolls and
product re-shipments, significantly increasing operational costs. The reliability and streamlined design of the
CPEo 450 effectively reduce failures.

2.3 Principal benefits of Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 – WiMAX outdoor CPE with
integrated VoIP to operators/users
Installation and maintenance are quick and simple. An intuitive user-friendly graphical user interface (GUI)
and intelligent LEDs make it easy for an operator’s installer or a user to easily check the status of the device.

The CPEo 450 features cross-polarized antennas to help angular dispersion, allowing the CPE to be more
sensitive to the different angular polarizations of a signal. The CPEo 450 utilizes Motorola’s advanced
cross-polarized antennas, resulting in a decrease retransmits of information to the CPE, and an increase in

overall network throughput.

All access ports in the plug and play CPE are integrated on to one junction box that resides inside the customer
premises. The outdoor CPEo 450 comes with all the necessary device drivers pre-loaded for customer
convenience. Subscribers just connect the device via the indoor POE junction box to their computer and voice
handsets and the device is ready to offer WAN/VoIP services.

2.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Motorola WiMAX CPEo
450 – WiMAX outdoor CPE with integrated VoIP
The Motorola WiMAX CPEo 450 Series is part of the Motorola WiMAX comprehensive portfolio of
solutions and services needed to plan, launch and manage a WiMAX network. Designed to complement and
complete operator networks, Motorola WiMAX solutions address a broad range of applications across
operator segments. Motorola’s WiMAX CPEs and devices demonstrate exceptional ability to overcome the
harsh conditions of the radio propagation environment. So they’ll not only deliver excellent performance for
WiMAX subscribers, but also lower costs and higher returns to the operator.

4.1 Introduction of mStage
mStage is a revolutionary network-based platform that empowers VoIP subscribers to use speech as well as
their thumbs to interact with web applications like social networking and Google Calendar on-demand, even
during a phone call. mStage is based on an open API, which allows providers to continuously innovate with
new voice applications built by independent developers for the platform. This creates additional demand and
increases revenue opportunities for mStage-enabled networks.

4.2 Features or characteristics of mStage
mStage is the first product to allow VoIP subscribers to interact with the web during a phone call using the
power of the human voice. Engaged with a keyword spoken in mid-conversation, mStage will instantly
connect callers with the web where they can conduct a variety of applications using speech, including
checking email, communicating with social networks, researching local entertainment, and so on.

mStage is also being designed to allow the Web to reach out to a subscriber while in a call in the form of an
oral ‘whisper’ message that could be an important reminder or an IM message from a friend.

One of the applications that mStage enables is a ‘Voice Poke,’ which will show when a Facebook user is on
the phone, letting friends send messages into those calls. This is an opt-in only application, meaning Facebook
users would have to willing opt into the application to allow their Facebook friends to see this information.

4.3 Principal benefits of mStage to operators/users
There is no argument that VoIP providers are still suffering from slow subscriber growth and a lack of a
compelling draw when compared with mobile phone services. mStage creates an exciting, value-added service
for VoIP providers and their users, allowing them to cost-effectively differentiate and generate new revenue.

Current and previous speech-recognition and IVR services are cost-prohibitive and require deployment at the
edge of the network. As a provider of carrier-grade voice processing platforms that handle billions of calls
annually for telecom operators, Ditech has leveraged this expertise to develop mStage, a carrier-grade product
capable of supporting heavy traffic loads. This allows the service to be scalable, cost-effective, and available
to every subscriber on any call, expanding the use of voice in carrier networks beyond typical point-to-point
phone service.

mStage is also unique in that it is a media processor, and can be installed either at the core or edge of the
network, which allows for a cost-effective, always-on service. In order to save VoIP providers’ resources,
mStage is available at any point during a phone call, but only uses resources when activated through a

keyword spoken by the subscriber. It utilizes Ditech’s network-tested, keyword-spotting technology to isolate
the specific word spoken by the caller to initiate the service, and only turns on when this action is performed.
This eliminates the need for multiple installations, keeping a resource-intensive IVR service running
constantly, and the resulting huge energy and bandwidth costs.

4.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of mStage
Ditech’s target market for mStage is VoIP providers and telecom carriers. As Ditech is a 15-year old
company, it has an established customer base, including Verizon, Sprint/Nextel, Orascom Telecom, AT&T,
Telus, Global Crossing and West Corporation, and deep relationships with many VoIP providers both in the
US and internationally. This makes it easy to initiate mStage conversations with many of the leading telecom
operators.

In addition, the initial feedback on mStage from telcos has been overwhelmingly positive. mStage allows
telcos to have a place in the emerging Voice 2.0 and social media worlds. It’s cost-effective, network-proven,
and developed by an established public telecommunications company familiar with helping service providers
meet both their revenue and customer needs.

Awards category:           Best WiFi Product or Service
Company:                   Wi-Fi Alliance
Vote stats:                Total: 15    Average: 3


6.1 Introduction of Wi-Fi Alliance
I am nominating the industry-wide certification for voice over Wi-Fi devices, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED(tm)
Voice-Personal. This certification program augments a portfolio of Wi-Fi interoperability certification
programs with the first program focused on the performance elements of Wi-Fi products. Specifically, Wi-Fi
CERRTIFIED Voice-Personal tests the robustness and stability of a Wi-Fi connection to ensure it can deliver
an excellent experience with a voice call.

6.2 Features or characteristics of Wi-Fi Alliance
The Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal program is the only Wi-Fi certification program of its kind and
includes performance testing focused on the unique characteristics of voice. The new certification program is a
key step in the Alliance’s efforts to further enhance the Wi Fi user experience.
The Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal program demonstrates that Wi Fi has evolved to meet the specific
requirements of voice applications, while providing the same great experience that users are accustomed to
from Wi-Fi data applications. It tests the performance of voice applications in network configurations that are
common in home and small office environments. To achieve certification, client devices and access points
must perform below set thresholds for packet loss, latency, jitter and call capacity while maintaining good
voice quality.
Products that have undergone the certification offer users, manufacturers, operators and application developers
additional confidence that Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal products will support an improved and
consistent experience of voice quality performance, while preserving interoperability with existing Wi Fi
CERTIFIED equipment. To take advantage of the enhanced support for voice applications, both the client
device and the access point must be Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal. Users can still use voice over Wi Fi
applications in devices that are not Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal, but in this case the user cannot be as
confident about the voice performance.
Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal is an optional program open to Wi-Fi Alliance members with client
devices or access points that have already been Wi Fi CERTIFIED for 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g; Wi Fi
Protected Access™ 2-Personal (WPA2™); Wi Fi Multimedia™ (WMM®); and, WMM Power Save (required
for access points, optional for client devices).
Wi Fi CERTIFIED products have undergone rigorous tests for interoperability, security and Quality of Service
that are defined by the Wi-Fi Alliance and executed by independent Authorized Test Laboratories.

The Voice-Personal program is the first application-specific program from the Wi Fi Alliance. It builds on
existing tests for protocol adherence, interoperability, security and multimedia functionality to offer enhanced
support for voice applications in both client devices and access points.
To help to ensure devices and access points meet the performance requirements of real-life scenarios,
certification tests are based on a typical network seen in a home or small office, with a substantial traffic load.


                                                    Page 18/161
                                             WBI Awards 2009


The test network used for this program:
Consists of a single access point serving multiple clients that may include PCs, phones, gaming
devices, printers, etc. Handoffs between access points are not tested in this certification program.
Supports at least four simultaneous simulated voice calls from four voice devices associated with
the same access point.
Carries data and video traffic to and from multiple devices, in addition to voice traffic.
Assigns priority to voice over traffic from other applications.
Provides security-protected access through WPA2 - Personal.
Supports power-saving capabilities in the access point and in battery-operated client devices.
Has a single Internet connection.
Voice-Personal performance criteria include:
Packet loss of less than 1% with no burst losses;
Latency of less than 50 milliseconds;
Maximum jitter of less than 50 milliseconds.
If a device does not perform to these levels, the voice call may drop in and out, may end suddenly, or the
conversation may suffer from excessive delays, making it unintelligible. Products that do not meet these
requirements will not receive Voice-Personal certification.
Both access points and client devices should be Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal in order for users to
benefit from the enhanced support for voice applications. In a network in which the access point lacks Wi Fi
certification for Voice-Personal, Wi Fi CERTIFIED devices may have access to the same voice applications,
but may not meet the required performance levels that ensure good voice quality. As an example, a user with a
Wi Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal device can run voice applications in a hotspot or at a friend’s house, but it
is not possible to predict the quality of the call if the access point used is not also Wi-Fi CERTIFIED for
voice.
To be eligible for certification under the Voice-Personal program, devices and access points are required to
pass the following Wi-Fi Alliance certification tests:
IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, or 802.11g;
WPA2-Personal;
WMM;
WMM-Power Save (required for access points, optional for client devices based on the need to
conserve battery life) .
WMM prioritizes voice over other Wi-Fi network traffic and addresses the issue of whether voice traffic is
properly treated relative to other types of traffic (video, best-effort traffic and background traffic). The
Voice-Personal program moves one step further and quantitatively measures the quality of the high-priority
voice traffic directly for loss, delay, and jitter against performance thresholds to verify that the prioritization of
voice traffic is conducive to good voice quality.




6.3 Principal benefits of Wi-Fi Alliance to operators/users
Because it helps ensure the best possible user experience with the voice application over Wi-Fi networks,
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Voice-Personal helps reduce support calls and product returns from end users. For both
product manufacturers and carriers, this benefit is quite compelling. Moreover, good voice quality over Wi-Fi
means that wireless carriers can confidently transition users off of licensed spectrum without sacrificing call
quality and, ultimately, risking subscriber loss.

6.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Wi-Fi Alliance


                                                     Page 19/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Now more than ever, users are expecting Wi-Fi as a feature on the handset, to support data and voice
applications alike. This certification program is an important enabler of the Wi-Fi/mobile convergence
category. Analysts (ABI Research and In-Stat) estimate that 50 - 90M handsets with Wi-Fi shipped in 2008,
and expect the number to reach 300M shipments or more by 2012.

Carriers often specify Wi-Fi CERTIFIED for handsets on the network, and product vendors can use the
designation as a seal of quality and mark of differentiation. Users in markets worldwide have indicated a
preference for certified products, including a willingness to pay more for them.

Wi-Fi certification testing is available to members of the Wi-Fi Alliance and is conducted in 13 test
laboratories worldwide.

Compared with standard outdoor access point that has a non-line-of-sight (NLOS) radius of 100-150m, Altai’s
A8 can typically achieve a non-line-of-sight radius of up to 500m. The coverage area is 10 times larger than
our competitors and therefore the required capital investment in wireless network infrastructure and save up to
65% CAPEX and OPEX eventually.


7.3 Principal benefits of Altai A8 Super WiFi Base Station to operators/users
In order to achieve higher economic return, service providers are looking for WiFi base station that can
provide longer reach, quick deployment as well as lower investment cost. The traditional outdoor WiFi
broadband solution can only provide limited coverage, therefore require more access points and involve higher
project cost and maintenance cost eventually. Unlike other equipment vendors, Altai is adopting the cellular
architectures as well as the smart antenna technology on its A8 Super WiFi Base Station to provide larger area
outdoor broadband coverage, hence reduce the number of base station required per square kilometer compared
to wireless mesh networks. The total project cost, maintenance cost and operating cost will greatly reduce,
this helps increase the profitability and competitiveness of the service providers.

With today’s standard mesh technology, roughly 10 to 20 units are required to provide a square kilometer of
coverage. Altai’s longer reach smart radio technology requires significantly fewer units per square kilometer
of coverage with half of the deployment cost and improved latency over conventional mesh systems. By using
the proprietary technology, Altai is able to overcome traditional WiFi limitations and offer tremendous
triple-play features to users.

8.2 Features or characteristics of EXSW-1600 Wireless LAN Switch
Extricom’s innovation is based on a simple, yet powerful idea: eliminate the concept of cell-planning, and
replace it with the “Channel Blanket” architecture. In essence, the Extricom system provides the client with
the handoff-free experience of operating within a single AP, while extending the coverage and capacity of
multiple channels throughout a much broader service area.

The Extricom solution is based on a fully centralized WLAN architecture, in which the switch makes all of the
decisions for packet delivery on the wireless network. In this configuration, the access points simply function
as radios, with no software, storage capability, MAC or IP address. Even the basics of connecting are
different: clients associate directly with the switch, not with the AP. The AP acts as an “RF conduit” to rapidly
funnel traffic between the clients and the switch.



                                                   Page 23/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Centralization of the Wi-Fi environment enables enterprises to deploy 802.11a/b/g channels at every AP,
creating overlapping Channel Blankets. The channel’s bandwidth is delivered across the blanket’s service area
(i.e. the combined coverage of all APs connected to the switch), with interference-free operation and
consistent capacity throughout.
Within each Channel Blanket, the switch avoids co-channel interference by permitting multiple APs to
simultaneously transmit on the same channel, but only if they won’t interfere with each other. In summary, the
Extricom solution eliminates the traditional performance limitations caused by RF cell planning, co-channel
interference, edge users, rate adaptation, mixed b/g devices, and frequent AP-to-AP handoffs.

The Extricom Channel Blanket Architecture has been the subject of 18 patent filings with 8 patents awarded to
date.


8.3 Principal benefits of EXSW-1600 Wireless LAN Switch to operators/users
Benefits of the Extricom EXSW-1600 WLAN switch include:

Simpler Design and Maintenance: The Extricom WLAN System reduces the complexity of RF surveys and
cell planning. Extricom’s UltraThin APs are placed where needed for best coverage and do not require
configuration.

Superior Wireless Connectivity: With every AP on the same channel, the Extricom switch receives multiple
copies of each client transmission and chooses the best AP to transmit the reply, making the system highly
resilient to RF interference and ensuring the highest possible throughput.

Continuous Mobility: Client devices move anywhere within the Extricom Channel Blanket without
experiencing inter-AP handoffs, re-authentication or latency.

Designed for 802.11n: The 802.11n Draft 2 compliant EXSW-1600 delivers a smooth migration to 802.11n
for enterprises. The Extricom Channel Blanket Architecture is a perfect match for the unpredictable coverage
patterns of 802.11n APs.

Centralized Access: Extricom switches coordinate media access for all of the connected APs and eliminate
co-channel interference, which leads to higher performance and more stable operation under heavy load.

Service Flexibility: Extricom’s multi-layer, multi-channel architecture with overlapping Channel Blankets
provides physical segregation of wireless clients, applications, or standards. This flexible approach translates
into more stable and predictable wireless LAN performance and the ability to offer service level guarantees.


8.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of EXSW-1600 Wireless
LAN Switch
Since its introduction in the spring of 2008, the EXSW-1600 has been deployed at a wide variety of
enterprises and organizations, including school districts, universities, warehouses, and factories.

integrated deployment that supports all combinations of bands, modes, clients, and applications without


                                                    Page 24/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009


conflict.

The EXSW-1600 is particularly well suited to user-dense environments where there a significant capacity
issues, such as school classrooms where multiple users are accessing the network simultaneously;
environments where there is a lot of RF “noise” such as factory floors and warehouses; environments where
highly mobile users are using latency-sensitive applications such as VoIP or session-based access to backend
databases; scenarios where fast, simple deployment is imperative; and organizations that lack RF expertise and
have limited personnel to do system maintenance.

Extricom expects that the EXSW-1600 will become its leading switch model. Although market forecasts are
not available at this time, it is anticipated that most deployments of Extricom WLAN in 2009 will involve the
EXSW-1600.

9.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Wirelless Ypsi
Wireless Ypsi has shown that free wifi does not take away service from commercial carriers. The fear has
been that commercial carriers will suffer if free wifi is offered. The opposite is true. Free wifi has driven the
demand for more Internet connections. Nearly 20 new high speed connections have been ordered by


                                                    Page 26/161

businesses and volunteers to help support and grow Wireless Ypsi in the past year. We expect 30 new
connections to be ordered this year to help grow Wireless Ypsi. In same cases, business have ordered a second
Internet connection to provide dedicated bandwidth to help support Wireless Ypsi. Moreover, there is not one
case where a Internet connection or service was cut as a result of the availability of Free Service from Wireless
Ypsi.

In fact, we have seen a small but measurable shift in service away from Internet service providers that don't
allow bandwidth sharing to providers that do. Residents and Business owners have asked what can they do to
help grow the project only to learn their ISP or Carrier does not allow bandwidth sharing. So we have seen
several businesses switch their Internet service to a carrier that does allow bandwidth sharing so as to help the
project. This should be a clear message that Free WiFi service is a benefit to commercial carriers and those
carriers that are been willing to work with Wireless Ypsi have seen a significant increase in new orders for
service.

                           11. AirWave Wireless Management Suite 6.2


Awards category:          Best WiFi Product or Service

Vote stats:               Total: 16   Average: 3.2


11.1 Introduction of AirWave Wireless Management Suite 6.2
During times of great change – developments in technology, mergers & acquisitions, or recession - CIOs and
IT managers look for open-system implementations to avoid technological cu-de-sacs. AirWave Wireless
Management Suite 6.2 is a multi-vendor management platform that meets those needs by enabling network
managers to;

i)extend the life of older WLAN implementations which would otherwise be replaced because of security
concerns or lack of compliance,
ii)implement newer WLAN products from the same or different vendors while managing both product sets
from the same console,
iii)provide reporting and compliance information to retail’s Payment Card Industry (PCI) exacting standards.

AirWave 6.2 is a management application that resides upon a purpose built appliance or bought in PC
hardware, and provides a single console from which to monitor, configure and control an entire wireless
network – whether it is 50 Wi-Fi access points from a single vendor, or fifty thousand Wi-Fi, mesh and
WiMax products from a variety of different vendors.

Specifically, release 6.2 of AirWave implements the security, management and compliance reporting required
to allow retail organisations to meet PCI compliance from a single management and reporting console. It is the
only platform that combines all elements into a single multi-vendor tool that avoids vendor lock-in and
extends the life of existing wireless networks that would otherwise become obsolete.


11.2 Features or characteristics of AirWave Wireless Management Suite 6.2
AirWave 6.2 is unique in that it provides for management of all major vendors’ wireless products - more than
20 vendors Wi-Fi, mesh and WiMax – and it provides complete compliance audits and configuration policy
enforcement to PCI standards. Crucially, this allows retailers to meet PCI requirements by implementing a
single platform for management, user tracking, session history, compliance audits, configuration policy
enforcement, rogue device detection, and role based administrative access and full audit logs, which combined
with requisite network hardware changes, allows retailers to protect customer and credit card data
appropriately.

AirWave 6.2 also integrates management and reporting from the wired infrastructure that underlies and
supports the wireless infrastructure. Without knowledge of the performance and operation of the wired
network, it is not possible to effectively diagnose problems or facilitate planning; wired switch ports
incorrectly configured, or ports with excessive traffic will impact the performance of the wireless network, and


                                                   Page 30/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


single vendor management applications will not integrate information from non-wireless infrastructures, or
other vendors’ products.


11.3 Principal benefits of AirWave Wireless Management Suite 6.2 to operators/users
Provides stability in time of change – and limits obsolescence:
Few technology sectors have seen such upheaval in recent times as enterprise wireless LANs. Many smaller
vendors have been acquired or merged, and it would be a brave person to suggest that the consolidation of
smaller hardware vendors is yet over. OEM relationships have been forged, and then forgotten. Even stable,
major vendors have seen multiple product lines come and go through acquisition and obsolescence.
AirWave 6.2 allows users to maintain effective operation of aging equipment, and integrates new products or
vendors into existing networks without requiring ‘rip & replacement’.

Managing the explosion in managed devices:
Demand for greater wireless connectivity from both end users and from budget holders who are aware that
wireless networks are substantially cheaper to install and operate than the wired network they replace has left
Network Operations departments struggling to keep pace with a rapidly growing – and reliant - mobile user
population.
AirWave 6.2 may be implemented to support the smallest enterprise wireless networks, but is also proven to
scale to support the largest WLAN network today. Its ability to support multi-vendor networks prevents users
from being locked-in to a single vendor’s solution.

Emergence of new technology (i.e 802.11n) or new applications:
New wireless technologies such as 802.11n and mesh emerge, yet they must be seamlessly and reliably
managed. AirWave 6.2 integrates management and reporting of new products from vendors under a single
console, relieving IT department of the complexity of having to access multiple management consoles and
integrate data as separate process.

Reporting and compliance:
A key change to AirWave 6.2 was the introduction of PCI compliance reporting and management. Today’s
stricter regulatory compliance standard (SOX, GLBA, HIPPA and PCI) requires the strong, centralised
wireless network management of a platform like AirWave.



11.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of AirWave Wireless
Management Suite 6.2
The enterprise WLAN market is expected to grow by 18% per year through 2013 to an overall revenue size of
approximately $4bn. Market penetration is expected to double to approximately 30% in the same period.
Organisations are increasingly reliant upon their WLAN – for example, Microsoft has found that nearly three
quarters of their employees use the WLAN every day, and the majority no longer use the wired network at all.

Hub télécom (an operator of wireless networks in France) manages 1600 wireless access points from multiple
vendors using an AirWave management platform. “It would have been a disaster if we had to use separate
solutions to manage each type of hardware on our network,” explained Luc Vanacker of Hub télécom. “When
a customer calls, we cannot ask him to wait while we determine which management console to use. We need a
single interface that makes it easy to determine what is happening and how the network is performing in that
area. With AirWave, we’re able to improve our efficiency and reduce the amount of time it takes to manage

better performance than other 802.11n solutions.
Quantenna’s technology solves two major wireless networking challenges in the home for operators and
consumers: (1) wireless networking coverage throughout the whole home; and (2) adding wireless
connectivity to consumer audio/video devices, such as flat panel TVs, which require high bandwidth to
support HD video content.

Quantenna’s cost effective solution is used by home networking, traditional wireless networking equipment
and consumer electronics manufacturers. With Quantenna’s technology as the foundation of their products,
these manufacturers can build the most reliable and highest performance wireless networking equipment and
consumer electronics that are capable of delivering full home wireless coverage and the reliability to stream
HDTV anywhere in the home.

Here’s an in depth look into the user benefits of each market segment:

Home Networking
Quantenna’s technology enable users to enjoy guaranteed wireless bandwidth no matter where they are in the
home. These solutions enable home gateways, access points and intelligent access plugs to deliver a consistent
experience throughout the home without dead spots or poor connections. Previously, users that wanted better
wireless performance would be forced to install multiple access points throughout the home. However,
because these devices are not networked or meshed together, users would have to select the device with the
best connectivity and hope that the connection would remain consistent – a scenario that will only deliver
best-effort performance. In comparison, home networking solutions that include Quantenna’s technology will
ensure the highest performance by focusing power towards the client/station. With Quantenna, users can be
assured of a consistent, high-bandwidth experience without the frustration of dropped connections or dead
zones.

Enterprise Wireless LAN
As enterprises continue to focus heavily on wireless networks, it will become increasingly critical to have a

                                           WBI Awards 2009


wireless LAN that is robust, reliable and delivers consistent high performance. Often, IT is challenged to find
solutions that deliver high performance to all areas in the office building. Users in a corporate environment
will have the need to pick up the computer and travel to another office or conference room without losing the
connection. Quantenna technology can be integrated directly into high-end routers, intelligent access plugs,
servers and PCs. The Quantenna chipset provides total coverage with guaranteed high-speed bandwidth.
Additionally, the chipset supports all of the security protocols, ensuring that the corporate data remains secure
over wireless connections. Quantenna enables the company’s wireless LAN delivers the consistent, reliable
performance required to ensure employees productivity.

Carrier Multi-Play Services
Carriers recognize that the battle for the customer is in the home. Unfortunately, carriers have the least amount
of visibility and control over the home and the equipment that subscribers are using, which results in an
unreliable and unpredictable environment that is not suitable for offering triple-play services. Providers that
want to offer bundled HDTV, voice and data services would need to rewire homes to create a more stable
environment. Quantenna’s technology can be incorporated into WLAN access points, intelligent access plugs,
DSL home gateways, cable gateways and set-top boxes, providing ease of mobility across the entire LAN. As
a result, carriers can confidently accelerate deployment of revenue-generating triple-play services to compete
against cable providers and can guarantee wireless performance.

Consumer Electronics
Most of today’s wireless consumer electronics products offer unreliable bandwidth for wireless video
transmission. By integrating the Quantenna chipset into flat panel TVs, game consoles, PVRs and video
cameras, consumer electronics manufacturers have a solution that offers consumers a more predictable
experience and eliminates wiring clusters. With Quantenna silicon integrated directly into these products,
vendors will be able to guarantee wireless performance and a reliable wireless experience.


14.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Quantenna 4x4 MIMO
Technology
Quantenna designed its chipsets to meet the demands of the rapidly growing wireless LAN (WLAN) market,
and is strongly positioned to compete head-on with dominant wireless networking companies, including
Atheros and Broadcom. Demand for Wi-Fi chipsets by network equipment and consumer electronics
manufacturers is expected to reach about $6 billion (938 million units) by 2012, according to market research
from In-Stat.

Quantenna serves multiple segments of the wireless market with advanced silicon solutions that establish a
new, significantly higher standard of performance and reliability for home networking, carrier deployment,
enterprise networks and consumer electronics. While a vast majority of consumers are eager to upgrade their
existing 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi devices to 802.11n, they would do so only if there is a significant improvement in
the reliability. Quantenna’s guaranteed Wi-Fi bandwidth solution gives consumers the long-awaited reason to
upgrade to 802.11n.

According to industry analysts, the overall growth of the Wi-Fi chipsets market, particularly 802.11n-based
solutions, is on the rise, fueled by the demand for video and other high-bandwidth applications. In fact, ABI
Research estimates that 600 million Wi-Fi chipsets will be shipped in 2009 – a number that will continue to
grow over the next few years. ABI also has indicated in a June 2008 report that 802.11n Wi-Fi consumer
access point shipments will grow to around 88 million by 2013.




                                                    Page 41/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Previously, consumers and manufacturers only had access to 80211a/b/g/n chipsets that offer low-speed
connectivity and limited performance. These solutions fall far short of the reliability, rate and range necessary
for true triple play services and the transmission of real-time video services including IPTV, standard
definition and high definition TV over wireless networks. Quantenna’s family of advanced wireless silicon
solutions delivers guaranteed Wi-Fi bandwidth for these true multimedia services and for distribution within
homes. These solutions solve a major hurdle in wireless networking by enabling OEMs to integrate
Quantenna’s silicon into their equipment to offer high-speed and predictable bandwidth throughout the home.

There are other technologies that don’t offer entire home networking and are proprietary today. With this is
mind, Wi-Fi and Quantenna technology is poised to succeed is this competitive wireless home networking
market.

Four technologies are currently competing to support the wireless communications of
high-definition video content, but not entire home networking, more single room applications:
*UWB – Non-standard, point to point only, just announced that the technology will be integrated into the
Bluetooth standard and the technology is on the way out. Limited to zero traction.
*WHDI – a proprietary technology, is sensitive to movements, non-standard and not networkable. It has
customer momentum, but a limited supplier base currently.
*WirelessHD - is a fast one-way pipe for in-room connections, but is not yet ready
for whole-home networking.
*Wi-Fi offers networking pervasiveness, it is standard based, new 4x4 MIMO technologies enable high
bandwidth, provides the best range for who home networking, enables video distribution.

Additionally, Quantenna has gotten strong endorsements from well-respected industry analysts and its
customers. A sample of what they’re saying is below:

Craig Mathias, a principal at the mobile and wireless advisory firm Farpoint Group:
“With this announcement, Quantenna has taken a major leap forward in wireless LAN chipset architecture,
throughput and reliability. I’m very impressed with the flexibility and configurability of their offering, which
make it appropriate for a broad range of applications. In a highly-competitive market where performance and
innovation predominate, Quantenna has staked out an impressive position.”

Corrado Rocca, senior vice president of Product Marketing and Development at Pirelli Broadband Solutions
S.p.A, the Pirelli Group company specializing in broadband access technologies:

“Highly reliable wireless bandwidth is exactly what carriers are looking for. It eliminates the need for home
rewiring and allows for seamless HDTV and ‘multiple play’ wireless connectivity, while enabling complete
home coverage. The combination of advanced MIMO features, such as 4x4 radio, transmit beam forming,
vector mesh networking and concurrent dual bands are all critical elements required to achieve an ultra
reliable, high speed wireless bandwidth.”

Jaime Fink, CTO of 2Wire:
In total we do about 8M gateways a year, I’d expect that we do about 60% in this high end category once we
transition all our customers that are interested through 2010.

Apple:
There's some huge interest here to see how your company innovating.

Clue has built a Wi-Fi network inside and outside of retail stores, which is offered to service providers to use
as their own or to roam with. www.cluewifi.com

15.2 Features or characteristics of Jonas Melander
1) The network is carrier grade still built with consumer pricing in mind.
2) Using retail stores gives great locations (that's their business), are easy to find and gave us our first set of
customers since we solve problems for them.
3) The network outside the stores was built to target smartphone users (they don't want to go inside and sot
down etc) and in order to maximize street level coverage we had to develop a new antenna.
4) Our business model where service providers pay per site and month don't limit their business models in any
way.

15.3 Principal benefits of Jonas Melander to operators/users
Mobile Operators can get a good easy to find footprint to offload data from their expensive mobile network
faster and cheaper than if they build themselves (like Telia Sonera). Service Providers in general can add
Wi-Fi to their access offerings or increase their coverage by adding our footprint (like Boingo)

15.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Jonas Melander
Our current network covers about 400 stores in Sweden (primarily 7-Eleven and Pressbyrån). We're now
expanding to Norway, Denmark and Lithuania where our retail partner has big chains (all together some 2.500
stores). We are also open to other retail chains and other countries so the potential in terms of network
coverage is huge. We can sell our network to 15-20 service providers and roam with numerous. Since we have
established our model with the biggest Mobile Operator in the region and the most aggressive global
aggregator, we see a lot of potential in this business. On top, we see an increasing interest in using new types
of Wi-Fi connected devices (sensors, consoles, etc).

                       16. Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility Platform


Awards category:          Best WiFi Product or Service

16.1 Introduction of Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility Platform
Appear is the leading provider of context-aware software infrastructure designed to power the next generation
of mobile applications and services. Using situational information (context), the Appear IQ suite of products
transforms ordinary wireless data networks into rich multimedia channels that deliver information, voice,
video and messages to mobile computer users. By capturing context, analyzing context and reacting to
context, Appear's solution eliminates information overload and ensures users have exactly the information
they need, when and where they need it. With Appear software, devices and applications react in real-time to
users' changing needs.

Appear IQ, based on the Appear Context Engine, enables the push and synchronization of personalized
real-time information over the wireless network to handheld devices whenever the user enters or moves
between authorized wireless zones depending on the context of the user, for example user profile, specific
location, and connection type. In addition, the Appear Synchronization Module automates the complex
synchronization processes, supporting file upload and download, version control, release management, and
dynamic synchronization workflows between devices and the back office.

Appear IQ transforms standard wireless networks into powerful productivity tools by delivering relevant
information to mobile frontline employees in their workplace. Employees are now equipped to make informed
decisions and efficiently complete tasks, resulting in productivity gains, cost reduction, and improved
customer service. Mobile frontline employees are faced with dynamic tasks that are directly related to the time
of day and the context of their surrounding events. They need to access information quickly, without the
complexities of using a search engine, moving between files or navigating complicated downloads.
Furthermore, they can’t afford the administrative headache associated with managing the data and applications
loaded onto their devices
The Problem We Address
There is so much information around us these days that it is becoming unwieldy and unmanageable to handle
and process. If you think about the first time you used a search engine, remember how impressed you were
that it found what you were looking for? That’s rarely the case these days. Because the amount of information
being collected and processed continues to increase at an exponential rate, traditional approaches for
processing and presenting information need to change to keep the data relevant.

That’s where context-awareness comes in. Starting out as a computer science research area in universities
fifteen years ago, Appear has taken the concept out of Harvard, MIT and the Royal Institute of Technology
and turned it into commercially viable technology. Context will revolutionize how information is delivered,
received and presented because current approaches to the way people access and interact with data will no
longer be sustainable. No longer does the user even need to know what they’re looking for: the Appear


                                                  Page 45/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Context Engine analyses the user’s situation (context) and determines what information the user needs, what
applications and services, data, voice or video needs to be delivered and how other aspects of their mobile
solution need to react to the new situation.
The Power of Context
Context is best described as the information about the situation of a person or entity. There are several key
categories of contextual information, and location is only one of them:

-User
-Environment
-System/Network
-Location
-Time

When equipping a mobile workforce with PDAs, smartphones and other wireless devices, it is critical to
understand how employees will use these devices, and what it will cost to deploy and maintain a mobility
solution. It makes no sense to simply transfer desktop applications to wireless devices. Increasingly,
organizations want to package and deliver applications and information based on the user’s situation (context)
at the time a request enters the system. This translates into increased employee productivity, easier
development of new services, and an improved return on the organization’s mobility system. `

In a recent piece of research, Ivano Ortis, Program Manager Transportation & Retail at IDC commented: “we
find that context-aware mobile services are going a step beyond from location-based services. Location
information is still crucial, what's even more is the user context, i.e. the use of location, profile, language,
time, type of mobile device, network bandwidth availability information and so forth and so on. This translates
into a system that provides information services that are relevant to specific operative situations and
transportation business environments. As a result, we recognize an increasing focus on adopting mobile
context-aware solutions among Western European transportation companies”.

It is no surprise that the first adopters of context-aware technologies were leading European ground transport
operators, who face the same challenges: a constantly mobile workforce distributed in disparate geographical
locations, a dynamic and complex workflow model, requiring users to share and access real-time information
on the job.

These mobile workers – let’s call them ultra-mobile workers - have very different requirements from regular
mobile office workers: they focus on the field task or the customer in front of them, not the computer. They
work in a dynamic and distracting environment, not in a quiet, static location. They need the right information,
and the right tool to anticipate their requirements. They are constantly moving from one location to another.
They need real-time, instantaneous, on-the-spot information. They don’t have time to browse and search. They
need technology that is easy to understand, learn and use, even if mobile devices are not exactly like desktop
computers, with their small interfaces, poor data-entry capabilities and limited battery life…

For these ultra-mobile workers, context is the solution: context-aware computing means that the user’s current
situation is analyzed in order to decide what services are presented to the user, when services are launched or
stopped. This is very different compared to traditional desktop systems where direct user interaction is
required (and wanted) for services to start. The user experience is quicker, simpler and more efficient.

In practice, context information gives mobile users instantly updated access to customized services and
information. The platform enables mobile “on the job” connectivity to back end systems, enabling operations
staff to access key data immediately, and interact with systems directly. It enables an operator to harness the


                                                   Page 46/161
                                            WBI Awards 2009


full potential of its mobile workforce, delivering improvements in profitability of services, customer service
and resource utilisation.

Precise information about the end user’s context is collected from various sources and stored in the Context
Engine. For example, the location information can come from different sources, such as GPS, Cell-ID or
pinpoint indoor Wi-Fi triangulation. But context is much more than location. Context parameters can
encompass everything from date, time, location and user role to PIM data, task at hand and network
bandwidth. They can also include custom-made parameters such as outdoor temperature, the capacity of the
forklift the user is operating or any other information relevant to the specific domain (for example RFID
events in a baggage handling system).

When a request is made on the system, the Context Engine validates it against the rules-based engine that sits
at its core, and delivers the appropriate information and applications. The Context Engine allows applications
and services to be built and delivered in a modular fashion. This allows users to access relevant information
through simple icons at a certain time depending on the user’s context information. When the Context Engine
is integrated into a mobility platform, common features such as device management, synchronization,
provisioning and notification are greatly enhanced, creating an intelligent mobility environment.

Context brings operational performance for the air transportation industry organizations:
Challenge:
The airport environment is particularly complex, with a host of different resources, passengers and assets
needing to be managed, and multiple stakeholders in ground operations. This complexity – and the unusual
mobility of the workforce – makes airports ideally suited, however, to new mobile and wireless technologies,
which will help transform ground operations, driving improvements in turnaround times, supply chain
management, worker efficiency and passenger satisfaction

Solution :
The Appear IQ mobile innovation infrastructure addresses issues of data synchronization, device
management, and efficient workflow management for airside and terminal-side personnel. The solution is
flexible, scalable, and supports a variety of device types. The platform is able to interface airline/airport host
systems (for ex. Airport and Resource Management Systems, Baggage Handling Systems and Supply Chain
Management) with mobile devices across a variety of wireless data networks, such as WiFi and cellular
(EDGE, GPRS and 3G).


TAP Maintenance & Engineering, a daughter company of the Portuguese Airline decided to mobile-enable the
so called Line Maintenance mechanics operating in time-critical conditions on the apron during aircraft
turnarounds, so as to bring them relevant updated information about on-going jobs as well as upcoming tasks
in order to provide faster, more efficient services and increase delivery quality. Encompassing flight,
engineering work and compliance, data from maintenance control and dispatch coordinators are made
available on PDA’s of the ramp personnel in real-time, also allowing for reporting via integration to diverse
backend IT-systems.

Whereas other insular/silo standalone mobility workforce applications exist, rarely can off-the-shelf products
work in a Line Maintenance as the need to interconnect with so many diverse backend legacy systems is so
pivotal. The Appear AIQ platform can handle a cross-company IT-system integration, its unique
context-aware functionality further adds a possible automatized mobile-extension of large-screen
desktop-bound applications to a hybrid fleet of mobile devices, provisioning real-time data, setting up context
rules on-the-fly to supply a best-of-breed and cutting-edge technology for non-sedentary, time-critical and


                                                     Page 47/161

error-prone work-processes in the air-transport segment.

16.2 Features or characteristics of Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility Platform
The technology platform, Appear IQ, is the first commercial wireless platform capable of instantly capturing
context information and displaying relevant services to wireless users depending on their exact situation or
context in order to facilitate their work, increase quality of service and safety levels. The innovation resides in
the Appear Context Engine, brain of the platform. It combines the most advanced push and location-based
technologies resulting in a wireless solution that is capable of intelligently sorting and distributing data as well
as gathering user or device information from the wireless network, including precise indoor positioning
(within 5m).

For example, the Appear client will display the synchronization icon only if the worker is in a WLAN enabled
airport (location), the WLAN hangar is his regular home base where he is suppose to start/end his shift
(profile), no other applications or processes that are currently running could interfere with the update (device
management) and the device is properly configured to the right WLAN (connectivity management).

Key Features

in France, United Kingdom and The Netherlands.


16.3 Principal benefits of Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility Platform to
operators/users
Prior to the deployment TAP M&E staff were using pen and paper. Positive impact can be attributed to a
change of collaboration behavior and willingness among both middle-management and technical staff to
revamp the workflow and overhaul the task-oriented processes.
The solution for the TAP proof-of-concept is a three-tiered architecture, where existing TAP back-end systems
will connect to Appear IQ mobility platform. The main server is hosted and provided as a shared ASP-service
- with a view to service all TAP M&E airports in the future. At each site, there is a proxy-server as a second
tier which handles all the local processing and interface with both TAP IT-systems and all the handheld
terminals. These handhelds provision the tools to the ramp mechanics, and thus mobile-enable the current
manual work-processes. The benefits sought by the Line Maintenance division of TAP M&E is a combination
of firm performance indicators, improved efficiency, raised operational quality, curbed peak traffic stress,
improved teamwork and supervisor communication.


The Appear mobility platform will generate the following improvements:

Vote stats:                Total: 21   Average: 4.2


18.1 Introduction of Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex Enterprise
The Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex Enterprise smart Wireless LAN (WLAN) delivers reliable 802.11n wireless
connectivity to thousands of concurrent users across large enterprise environments, allowing them to stream
concurrent IP-based video, data and voice communications. By combining dual-band 802.11n technology
with dynamic beamforming, spatial multiplexing and automatic interference rejection, Ruckus is able to
deliver the industry’s most solid 802.11n performance at range. With its adaptive smart mesh networking, the
Ruckus ZoneFlex Enterprise enables organisations to quickly build high-performance WLANs that support a
greater number of users and offer higher, more robust throughput at a significantly lower cost of ownership,
without the management burden often associated with enterprise-class WLANs.

18.2 Features or characteristics of Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex Enterprise
The Ruckus’ ZoneFlex Enterprise WLAN utilises 802.11n to amplify its wireless performance, but uniquely
overcomes 802.11n’s inherent instability by combining dynamic beamforming antenna (BeamFlex),
Automatic Interference Mitigation (AIM) and spatial multiplexing technologies. Ruckus’ patented BeamFlex
technology harnesses 19 directional antenna elements to provide thousands of different signal paths through
the air. By responding to constant client feedback inherent in the 802.11a/b/g/n protocol, the ZoneFlex
Enterprise system automatically adapts signals to environmental changes thereby providing consistent high
performance wherever users roam on the network. BeamFlex also utilises AIM technology to achieve even
greater throughput by rejecting interference that degrades performance caused by packet loss and
retransmissions.

Furthermore, unlike competitive WLAN controllers which sit in the data path to centrally process and forward
all traffic, the Ruckus smart WLAN controller is based on a distributed forwarding architecture that eliminates
potential bottlenecks by not requiring all traffic to pass directly through the device. In addition, it radically
simplifies management and reduces equipment cost. This combination of innovative technologies results in a
two-to-four fold increase in signal coverage, improved transmission reliability and more effective throughput,
all at the fraction of the costs of competitive high-end WLAN solutions.

There are also flexible deployment options for the ZoneFlex Enterprise. Smart mesh networking capabilities
allow enterprises to deploy APs with or without Ethernet cabling, automatically forming resilient 5GHz mesh
connections between APs providing a high-speed backbone for 802.11n and/or legacy 802.11a/b/g/n clients.
By eradicating cabling, users have the flexibility to easily add APs as and when they are needed without the
cost of cabling.


18.3 Principal benefits of Ruckus Wireless ZoneFlex Enterprise to operators/users

                                                   Page 52/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Despite the growing demand for Wi-Fi, the adoption of 802.11n has been limited due to its high cost. The
ZoneFlex Enterprise changes this. Priced at almost a third of the cost of competitive products, all large
organisations are now able to reap the benefits of 802.11n without breaking the bank.

The system’s advanced smart antenna array and quality of service technology delivers wire-like reliability by
enabling Wi-Fi signals to be constantly formed and directed over the best performing signal paths. This
superior and consistent performance not only enables organisations to reliably transfer data – helping to
improve mobility and consequently increase productivity – but is also suited to support real-time multimedia
applications such as IP-based voice and video. This enables companies, for example those in the hospitality
sector, to deliver high-definition IPTV, video-on-demand and other video applications while concurrently
supporting data applications for guests and employees.

The high-performance and scalability of the solution also makes it ideal for service providers interested in
extending branded broadband services and new revenue generating services such as multi-media hotspots.
The solution’s advanced technology also means that due to its ability to intelligently find the best signal path
and extend the Wi-Fi range, less APs are needed than competitive solutions, further reducing costs both in the
service provider and enterprise market.

Investing in wireless technology is a necessary commitment today, but in the current economic climate,
companies also want to ensure that their solution will be not outdated quickly and that it is able to work with
legacy equipment. The ZoneFlex Enterprise gives organisations protection over their wireless investments by
enhancing performance and range for legacy 802.11a/b/g clients, while utilising the latest Wi-Fi standard. The
solution is also covered by Ruckus’ lifetime guarantee.


18.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Ruckus Wireless
ZoneFlex Enterprise
The massive explosion in the use of Wi-Fi enabled devices has significantly increased the pressure on
enterprises to utilise the higher speed 802.11n standard to meet this demand. However, until now it has been
difficult for any organisation to find a simple 802.11n enterprise solution at an affordable price, meaning
802.11n has been limited to the larger corporations. The ZoneFlex Enterprise range levels this playing field.
With the ability to scale up to 500 APs and manage thousands of users, it is ideal for delivering concurrent
IP-based video streaming, data and voice communications within hotels, schools, hospitals and enterprise
environments.

Many of these organisations do not have large IT teams to maintain and manage complex WLANs. The
Ruckus ZoneFlex Enterprise is easy to use and does not require a great level of expertise. It boasts centralised
management, automatic real-time optimisation and a web-based configuration wizard which lets any computer
user configure an entire WLAN in minutes. In contrast, competitive enterprise WLANs tend to be extremely
complex and time intensive to manage.

Furthermore, the ZoneFlex Enterprise for the first time makes 802.11n affordable for enterprises. Comparing
the cost of delivering 10 Mbps of consistent wireless bandwidth for every user in a 5000-user organisation,
Cisco and Aruba Wireless LAN systems command a per user price (based on MSRP) of £120 to £170.
ZoneFlex Enterprise cuts this cost to under £45, while delivering two to four times the signal range and a
100-300 percent performance improvement.

The Université de Lausanne in Switzerland is among the first ZoneFlex Enterprise users. It is using it for a

Details such as the target market/potential customer base or market forecasts would be helpful.

According to a report from ABI Research, the fixed mobile convergence market is predicted to expand to
accommodate 250 million users by 2012. By the end of September 2008, Orange had sold 1.3 million
dual-mode handsets. This means that when the Unik service was 2G it accumulated a very large customer base
and with the addition of 3G multimedia capabilities, this customer area has been vastly widened.

According to John Delaney, a Research Director with industry analyst IDC:
“The introduction of WiFi into high-end mobile phones has been very successful. Users of such phones are
taking advantage of WiFi to stream and download multimedia to their phones more quickly and more cheaply
than they can over cellular. This usage trend can be supported effectively by making the experience seamless,
removing the need for users to think about and switch manually between different access points and network
domains.”

                                24. LANCOM OAP-310agn Wireless


Awards category:          Best WiFi Product or Service
Company:                  LANCOM Systems GmbH
Vote stats:               Total: 21   Average: 4.2


24.1 Introduction of LANCOM OAP-310agn Wireless
The LANCOM OAP-310agn Wireless is the first outdoor Wireless LAN access point according to the 300
Mbps standard 802.11n (Draft 2.0) on the market. It supports operations in the 2.4 or 5 GHz band. Thanks to a
specific antenna technology, the LANCOM OAP-310agn takes the advantages of 11n – initially developed for
indoor use – to outdoor applications, allowing users to set up WLAN point-to-point links reaching net data
throughput rates of up to 100 Mbps, and to span distances of 20 km and more.

The OAP-310agn is primarily used for WLAN bridges to gap the “last mile” between a site without landline
broadband internet and the next available internet backbone, or to extend a LAN from one building to a remote
one – e.g. across the road or to a production site situated a couple of kilometres away. However, it can also be
used for campus coverage or for establishing WLAN hotspots.


24.2 Features or characteristics of LANCOM OAP-310agn Wireless
802.11n is the fastest-ever Wireless LAN standard, currently allowing for gross data rates of 300 Mbps.
However, 802.11n makes use of physical characteristics – reflections and multi-path propagation – that are of
particular advantage at the inside of buildings, and contribute to a large extend to the speed gain offered by
802.11n.

The OAP-310agn Wireless, on the other hand, is the only Outdoor Access Point (with an extremely robust
IP-66 protective housing for operations at -30° to +65°) according to 802.11n on the market.

Thanks to a unique combination of 802.11n-based OAP-310agn and specific antenna technology – the
so-called polarization diversity – LANCOM has succeeded in taking the advantages of 802.11n even to
outdoor environments where no reflections occur, reaching unprecedented net data throughput rates – 100
Mbps – and distances for outdoor line-of-sight links (20 km and more).

To further boost performance, the OAP-310agn Wireless supports Broadband Fixed Wireless Access
(BFWA). Using BFWA (which is subject to local legislation), the maximum legal transmission power is 4
watt EIRP instead of 1 watt EIRP with traditional radio links. As a result, outdoor links using 802.11n in
combination with BFWA in the 5 GHz band – a combination today only offered by the LANCOM
OAP-310agn Wireless – reach even higher net data rates or, depending on the settings, span even larger
distances (30 km and more) than before.


24.3 Principal benefits of LANCOM OAP-310agn Wireless to operators/users

                                                   Page 68/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Principal benefits include:
-Unprecedented net data rates and transmission distances for directional radio links using standardized,
non-proprietary WLAN technology
-High-speed Internet access in areas without DSL coverage
-Instant extension of a LAN to a remote site
-Cost-effective and easy to install
-Reliable transmission even in tough climatic conditions (-30 to +65 °C)
-Seamless integration with existing LANs
-Reliable transmission of Voice-over-IP
-Secure sharing of links thanks to full VLAN support


24.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of LANCOM OAP-310agn
Wireless
802.11n outdoor access points are deployed in a large variety of applications: from multiple-site networking
via fixed, wireless high-speed (broadband) internet access to backhaul connections for cell phone providers
and the coverage of open areas with mobile WLAN clients.

As part of their fight against the economic crisis, many national governments have launched internet
infrastructure projects aiming at providing 100% coverage with high-speed internet. Funding for these projects
amounts to several billions Euros / Dollars depending on the individual countries. WLAN, and in particular
802.11n combined with BFWA, is one of the technologies that will be used to provide fast, and economic,
coverage to remote and rural areas.

As a result, the demand – national and from abroad – for products such as the OAP-310agn has seen
significant growth over the last months, with no end in sight. However, there is no official data available yet
on the overall market potential of 802.11n based outdoor access points.

25.1 Introduction of 7signal
7signal solves one of the fundamental challenges preventing the wireless use of business-critical applications:
the lack of real-time visibility and quality control over the wireless network. 7signal significantly decreases
the risks associated with business-critical WLAN deployments.

By continuously monitoring and testing the data flows within a corporate WLAN network and the
performance of network applications, both passively and actively, the 7signal Sapphire provides real-time
information to network administrators. 7signal Sapphire alerts of even the slightest irregularities in
performance before users notice a difference, and helps locate and fix network problems. In addition, 7signal
Sapphire collects data for evaluating network performance against service level agreement (SLA)
requirements.

To date, the business use of 802.11 wireless networks has suffered from their inherent “best effort” service
level. WLAN has not been able to compete with wired networks in resilience, availability and quality. As
interruptions or delays in connectivity are directly related to decreased productivity and financial losses,
wireless networks have still not taken off properly in business-critical use. 7signal Sapphire enables the level
of monitoring and quality control that provides the confidence needed for a wider deployment of WLAN
technology in business-critical applications.

25.2 Features or characteristics of 7signal
7signal Sapphire enables users, administrators, service providers, and other parties with a role in maintaining a
WLAN network to automatically and continuously monitor and analyze network performance, regardless of
the network vendor. With Sapphire, corrective action can be taken before the users notice a difference, leading
to minimum downtime and fluent processes depending on the wireless service. As of today, WLAN network
performance management generally is fully reactive, based only on the end customers complaints and reports.
7signal Sapphire brings enterprise WLAN performance management on par with mobile networks or even
beyond.

The Sapphire solution includes both software and hardware components. Sapphire Eye station is a dedicated
WLAN monitoring station with advanced antenna arrays and RF electronics that make the solution possible
and fully unique. Installed as a separate entity within the monitored wireless network, the system provides
measurement data of both the monitored network and all other activity in the air and all the way to application
server, end-to-end as actual users experience it.

The key principles of Sapphire have patent protection. 7signal has one granted patent and two applications are
in final phases before issuing. More patent applications will be filed soon. Patents cover the key principles of


                                                    Page 70/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009


end-to-end measurements with minimum amount of monitoring devices. A single Sapphire Eye is proven in
live network to be able to monitor up to 25 access points, enabling very cost efficient monitoring of network,
terminal and application quality.

25.3 Principal benefits of 7signal to operators/users
With 7signal Sapphire, organizations are able to assure the continuous high-quality operation of their
business-critical services and applications in wireless networks. Sapphire complements WLAN controller
architecture, adding there currently completely missing capabilities.

7signal Sapphire brings telecom-grade Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) into the WLAN domain. Advanced
SLA reporting capabilities and real time alarms for potential quality impacting system behaviors are unique to
the WLAN market. These types of capabilities are generally used in the telecom industry to proactively
maintain and expand the networks. Now this capability is introduced to WLAN networks.

Sapphire enables new business models and new revenue streams for WLAN network hosting service
providers. On top of the traditional “best effort” WLAN network service, Sapphire makes it possible to
provide service level agreements (SLA) for end customers. For service providers this means new income. For
end user organizations this brings necessary confidence for deploying new application over wireless (like
reliable VoIP over WLAN) and fewer interruptions in business operations.

Troubleshooting of WLAN networks is known to be time consuming and requiring almost always expert on
site visits with laptop analyzer software. With Sapphire, fault finding is fast and can be done remotely with
massive amount of history performance trending data and remote test capabilities.

Traditionally wireless quality assurance in business critical networks has been done by multiplying the number
of deployed access points. With Sapphire, savings achieved just with less network hardware easily compensate
for the additional 15% investment that is needed. Not to mention savings in business processes running
smoothly on reliable networks.

25.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of 7signal
There is a massive business opportunity in WLAN quality assurance. Wide scale adoption of VoiP over
WLAN voice service will make all enterprise WLAN networks business critical. Today roughly 20% of
enterprise installations may be called business critical and enterprise market size was about $2B in 2008.

Analysts expect Enterprise WLAN market to double or triple over next five years. At the same time, the
relative share of business critical networks goes up to 50%. These two factors open up a unique opportunity
for 7signal.

7signal Sapphire market opportunity includes all enterprise networks deployed into field, not only new yearly
equipment sales. The value of rolling three years installed base for enterprise grade equipment is about $4-5B.
With about 15% complementing investment to Sapphire, existing networks often can be made perform
reliably. Often the basic issue with low performing networks is not the networking equipment, but how they
are used and managed.

While the amount of hardware can be minimized with patented 7signal technology, the solution offers
significant software sales business potential for 7signal.

33.1 Introduction of Azimuth ACE™ 400WB MIMO Channel Emulator
The ACE 400WB MIMO channel emulator is a WiMAX test tool serving the wireless equipment supply chain
including silicon providers, equipment vendors and service providers that is used for development,
certification and performance testing.

Multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) is the core technology for mobile WiMAX and enables products that
deliver greater wireless throughput and range for ubiquitous high-speed voice, video and data services.
However, multi-antenna MIMO solutions create great test challenges. Unlike single antenna RF transmissions,
MIMO transmissions rely on varying over-the-air conditions to differentiate between streams, and so
recreating these varying, over-the-air conditions in the laboratory is core to testing the operation and resilience
of a MIMO solution.

To predict the performance of MIMO-based products when they are in the real-world environment and
determine whether MIMO algorithms are working properly, multipath emulation with correlated channels are
required in the test. Channel emulation enables vendors and service providers to test WiMAX devices using
modeled channel conditions, reducing the time and expense of testing in the “actual” real world.

The ACE 400WB is a fully bi-directional channel emulator that recreates the effects occurring in over-the-air
transmission, such as fading and multipath, using state-of-the-art digital signal processing. The ACE 400WB
includes the industry’s highest RF fidelity for error free testing, ensuring that introduced channel fading is as
close to the real world as possible. Its channel emulation capabilities scale from single antenna up to 4
transmit and 4 receive antenna devices (up to 32 channels), also allowing point-to-point and
point-to-multipoint configurations ensuring that advanced MIMO functionality can be properly tested and
validated functionally and for performance. Additionally, it enables functions like collaborative uplink, which
increases the capacity service providers can offer to their subscribers, and hand off (roaming) to ensure
seamless mobile operation and customer satisfaction.

The ACE 400WB exercises RF technology in thousands of virtual channel scenarios to provide broad testing
of real-world conditions in a lab rather than conducting cost-prohibitive field testing. By enabling real-time
MIMO performance testing, the ACE 400WB streamlines WiMAX chipset, client and infrastructure device
testing, as well as simplifies and speeds setup, operation and results collection for engineers, QA groups, or
system integration teams. The ACE 400WB uniquely provides all of this functionality in a single box, purpose
built for the MIMO test needs of today’s technology and emerging 4G technologies. The result is higher
performance products and faster time-to-market, at a much lower cost.

33.2 Features or characteristics of Azimuth ACE™ 400WB MIMO Channel Emulator
In the past, channel modeling and channel emulation was a research tool focused at single antenna
configurations that required modeling experts and RF engineers to configure and use them. As the technology
has migrated to commercial use, and the antenna configuration has expanded to multi-antenna scenarios, the
ACE 400WB is the only solution designed specifically for MIMO. The ACE 400WB provides what was not
previously possible for MIMO testing: a real-world scenario in a lab that is flexible and easy to use for all
levels of research development and validation. This is a significant benefit because, as previously mentioned,
real-time testing with channel emulation allows thousands of scenarios to be tested for RF performance,
mobility and interoperability using statistical modeling and replaces hundreds of hours/days of field testing,
where each test provides only a snapshot scenario and lacks repeatability.

While competitive products exist, they were developed more than 10 years ago for early generations of cell
phone technology and are unable to address the more stringent multi-antenna RF requirements of broadband
wireless communications emerging today. In single antenna communications, channel fading introduces a
level of interference which is used to validate the RF design of the receiver. In multi antenna communications,
the channel emulation introduces antenna to antenna multipath and fading while controlling the relationship
between the signal received at each antenna through complex correlation matrices – this creates the real-world
variations in signal which enable the technology.

Azimuth Systems currently has three pending patents on various aspects of its channel emulation technology.

Innovative features of the ACE 400WB solution include:

•Proven MIMO and OFDM architecture – The ACE 400WB inherently supports advanced
transmitter-receiver configurations and higher order modulation techniques (64QAM and above). As a fully
integrated single-box design, the ACE 400WB includes all RF components.
•Scalable – Fully- featured channel emulation that scales from single antenna to 4 antenna MIMO devices, to
measure RF interactions between multi antenna devices and set up mobility configurations with many devices
to test handoff.
•Real world – Dedicated bi-directional channel modeling that emulates real-world over-the-air conditions in
downlink and uplink paths, which can be used to test advanced antenna techniques like beam forming
applications.
•Ease of use – The ACE 400WB provides an easy-to-use hardware and software environment.
•Real-time fading – Standard and custom channel models with unlimited repeat time that allows users to
recreate a variety of typical WiMAX scenarios.

33.3 Principal benefits of Azimuth ACE™ 400WB MIMO Channel Emulator to
operators/users
The ACE 400WB will significantly reduce the cost of testing while at the same time enabling increased test
coverage, ensuring more reliable products delivered to the market faster.

The ability to run tests previously only achieved in the field and in a way that recreated hundreds- if not
thousands- of field test scenarios, as well as to run test cases that are almost impossible to run repeatably and
reliably in the field, enable chipset, device and service providers to accurately and reliably discover, diagnose
and repair problems during the test cycle and well before deployment to the user base.

This time and cost saving, coupled with more comprehensive testing, will ultimately enhance the user
experience and help promote the broad worldwide usage of wireless broadband services for fixed and mobile

      34. The WiMAX network of DigitalBridge Communications, USA by Alvarion


Awards category:          Best WIMAX Product or Service
Company:                  Alvarion
Vote stats:               Total: 33 Average: 5.5


34.1 Introduction of The WiMAX network of DigitalBridge Communications, USA by
Alvarion
The WiMAX networks of Sprint and Clearwire in the US might have grabbed the lion’s share of media
headlines, however, a much less-publicised company has beaten them in launching fully commercial WiMAX
services.

DigitalBridge Communications provides broadband wireless to underserved communities
of up to 150,000 people in the US using its WiMAX networks.

Today we are nominating its first mobile WiMAX network – the first commercial full-mobility WiMAX
network in the U.S.- for recognition by the WBI awards.

This has provided a blueprint for other service providers around the world who want to roll out personal
broadband 4G networks.


34.2 Features or characteristics of The WiMAX network of DigitalBridge
Communications, USA by Alvarion
DigitalBridge Communications (DBC) is committed to providing broadband wireless
services to small and medium-sized communities of up to 150,000 people nationwide.

It works with communities and schools in underserved areas to make high speed services available to local
residents and students. DBC’s first network went live in Rexburg, Idaho in June, 2007 and was one of the first
commercial WiMAX networks in the U.S., offering fixed and nomadic services.

Today they operate 15 high-speed fixed and nomadic WiMAX networks in towns throughout Idaho, Indiana,
Montana, Virginia and South Dakota. Selling under the brand name BridgeMAXX®, the service plans
available are from 2 Mbps download at $24.99 to business grade services starting at $49.99 per month. The
service is sold online, over the phone, and at a number of local retail locations.

Within just three months of launching its first market, DBC achieved 7.5% penetration of covered households
with 78% of users installing the equipment at home by themselves. The vast majority of these early users are
treating the network as portable; moving their desktops and laptops freely around their homes

At the start of 2008 DBC decided the time was right to build its first fully mobile WiMAX network.



                                                  Page 93/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009


The tourist town of Jackson Hole, Wyoming was chosen for the network due to the high tourism traffic
coming through the city. DBC believed that Jackson Hole would be a great showcase for mobility.

The network went live in June 2008 and was the first commercially available WiMAX service with full
mobility in the U.S. It enables customers to keep their connections while moving from base station to base
station, and it’s the first market where DBC has sold selling mobile customer premise equipment. So far those
CPEs consist solely of Alvarion PC cards embedded with Beceem Communications chipsets, but as the US
WiMAX ecosystem starts producing more quantities and a greater variety of WiMAX devices and embedded
electronics, DigitalBridge will be able to support them.


34.3 Principal benefits of The WiMAX network of DigitalBridge Communications, USA
by Alvarion to operators/users
The mobile WiMAX network of Jackson Hole is used by a wide variety of people: In addition to selling
contract home and mobile broadband connections to Jackson Hole’s permanent residents, public workers and
businesses, DigitalBridge offers temporary service through the local resort where visitors can connect their
laptops to the service with rented or loaned PC cards

All of these customers are taking advantage of the mobile capabilities of WiMAX. Access is maintained as
users move between towers giving them a fully mobile office
in their vehicles and access services such as video, voice, and data communications on
the go.


34.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of The WiMAX network of
DigitalBridge Communications, USA by Alvarion
DigitalBridge plans to upgrade its other WiMAX networks to full mobility in the next 12
to 18 months.

All of the markets are too small to be considered competitive with Sprint and Clearwire’s nationwide rollout,
which will target metro and mid-sized cities, but DigitalBridge will offer up its networks in roaming
agreements.

Forum®, Wave 2 Certification ready, 802.16e standards based solution.

Providing enhanced coverage and capacity, Motorola’s WAP 450 is built with MIMO A & MIMO
B, multiple antenna technologies that provide superior capacity and coverage in rural, suburban and urban
environments. With remote RF head design and high power output of 10 watts per sector at the antenna ports,
the WAP 450 is comparable to a 20 watt, ground based solution that looses power due to coaxial cable loss.
With this power, the WAP 450 still provides enhanced capacity and coverage for thousands of subscribers,
even with high downlink usage.

35.3 Principal benefits of Motorola WAP 450 WiMAX Access Point to operators/users
The WAP 450 reduces costs by using only a simple fiber connection between the RF antenna head and the
base control unit. With ultra-light infrastructure and no heavy coaxial cables, the WAP 450 can be deployed
by a single person and requires less ongoing maintenance. Fast deployment and reduced resource requirements
result in faster return on investment compared to typical base stations. The high power WAP 450 incorporates
high receive sensitivity which also allows operators to reduce overall CAPEX and OPEX by deploying fewer
access points compared to similar solutions. At the same time, it provides higher bit rates to users throughout
the coverage area.

Motorola’s WAP 450 is a carrier class solution that has global regulatory compliance and high availability.
As the WiMAX network expands, interference and noise increases. The WAP 450 comes with a dynamic
broadband capability feature that mitigates interference and dynamically changes capacity between the cell
edge and the core as the network expands.

The WAP 450 is available for selectable channel bandwidths, and is available in multiple WiMAX profiles,
including 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz, and 3.5GHz.

standards interfaces defined by The WiMAX Forum®.


36.2 Features or characteristics of Aptilo WiMAX CSN System (TM)
What makes Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN System exceptional is its unique pre-integrated approach, multi-access
support, purpose-built AAA+ core and Software-as-a-Service option. These make Aptilo an ideal solution in
today’s challenging economic climate when time-to-revenue is a critical factor.

Unique pre-integrated approach
A CSN system typically consists of several different subsystems for functions like AAA, DHCP, post- and
prepaid billing and more. These subsystems frequently come from different vendors, which often leads to
significant time and money spent in the procurement, integration and maintenance processes.

Aptilo has pre-integrated most of the different subsystems functions into the WiMAX CSN System. Offering
this truly integrated, ready-to-deploy solution saves significant time and money for operators during the
lifespan of their WiMAX service:

•Streamline procurement


                                                   Page 97/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


•Deployment -- Deploying several subsystems from different vendors and getting them ready for launch is a
complex and costly process.
•Maintenance -- By combining the subsystems required to deliver data and multimedia services within the
same platform, Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN System reduces the number of software releases per year, and provides
a more stable operation as the different subsystems are well tested before release.
•ASN node Integration
•Flexibility to Change the Operation of the WiMAX Service -- The Aptilo WiMAX CSN System is an open
platform with well-defined APIs and interfaces to external systems. This means that the operator is free to
integrate with a dedicated subsystem in an easy and modular way at a later stage if desired.

Multi-Access Support
Aptilo’s WiMAX CSN System can by default be used for WiMAX and Wi-Fi as well as fixed networks. This
allows for management of bundled data and multimedia services over hybrid WiMAX and Wi-Fi networks
within the same platform.

Purpose-built AAA+ Core
Aptilo’s WiMAX AAA core is a purpose-built solid system for control of access, user services and billing in
WiMAX networks, offering additional values such as: built-in user database, subscriber and session
management, a dynamic account engine, voucher management, advanced authentication, intelligent roaming,
ASN Gateway and Mobile IP HA adaptors, advanced APIs, security features and more.

Integrating Aptilo’s WiMAX AAA+ core with existing OSS/BSS systems of choice fast-tracks deployments.

Software-as-a-Service Option
Aptilo’s solutions are sold as software licenses running on standard servers. In addition, Aptilo offers
customers the convenience of a hosted Software-as-a- Service (SaaS) solution via the Aptilo Managed
Service™. The Aptilo SaaS allows operators to be up and running with their WiMAX service in a matter of
weeks.

While Aptilo has no patents on this technology, we have a first-mover advantage being the first integrated
CSN solution on the market.


36.3 Principal benefits of Aptilo WiMAX CSN System (TM) to operators/users
Savings in CAPEX and OPEX. We have found that dedicated subsystems are frequently very underutilized
from a functionality perspective. Many operators just make use of a fraction of the total functionality.

Aptilo has developed appropriate functionality for the less critical subsystems; we are second to none when it
comes to the more critical functions such as AAA, Policy Management and support for pre-paid services. At
the same time we have a totally open system, which means that the operator is free to integrate with a
dedicated subsystem at a later stage.

With the Service flexibility in the Aptilo solution, the service provider can not only offer tiered pricing models
for different customer groups for extra revenue, but also proactively counter and respond to new services from
the competition.

Also, we have successfully completed interoperability testing with a growing list of leading vendors in the
WiMAX space including Cisco, Motorola, Nortel and WiChorus to mention just a few on the ASN Gateway

        43. Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility Platform


Awards category:           Best Wireless Broadband Mobility Solution
Company:                   Brand Communications Ltd
Vote stats:                Total: 22    Average: 4.4


43.1 Introduction of Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility
Platform
Brand Communications wireless technology ‘Apollo Anywhere’ offers a number of significant advantages
when deploying mobile solutions for uninterrupted access to corporate LAN applications including e-mail,
internet and any business application, anywhere, anyplace at anytime.

Apollo provides a remote user (i.e. a user who for some reason cannot be physically connected to a LAN
environment) with full access to LAN and/or Internet Services, via whatever communications medium is
available. By definition remote users can be mobile (e.g. train or car), in a hotel room, in a customer’s
premises, in a truly remote location, or working from home. In these examples, the typical communications
options are ISDN, PSTN, GSM, GPRS, HSCSD, Satellite, WLAN (802.11b), WIMAX (802.16), HSDP, DVB
or 3G. Apollo allows the remote user to connect into the LAN environment via the chosen communications
system in a simple, secure, resilient, high speed and cost effective manner.

The Apollo solution has been designed to move with the advances in technology. It is an innovative mobile
data client / server solution that compliments the user’s choice of hardware platform and software
applications. Unlike some solutions that expect the user to make dramatic changes, Apollo seamlessly extends
the LAN environment at both ends via its transparent hardware and software elements. Apollo consists of
software for the mobile user and a hardware / software access solution within the network or LAN
environment.

The technology is one of the most comprehensive communications solutions available. It manages devices,
both LAN and modem oriented. This device management extends to the integrity of the link, the device itself,
power management of the device as well as authentication onto the respective networks using a portfolio of
protocols.
The Brand solution enables a mobile data user to maintain a virtual connection, 100% of the time, to any data
source they are connecting to, whether the Internet, or a private network for example. Providing a level of
reliability, speed and performance that is needed in today’s critical business applications.

The key to Brand’s technology is the global seamless roaming which overcomes wireless network
geographical coverage limitations, low throughput and high latency problems. Brand enables the user to
maintain as efficient a connection as possible through integrated compression and suppression of network data
- only real data is transmitted, as well as ensuring a secure connection with authentication, encryption, firewall
and optional VPN tunnelling. All of which is application - independent, as well as device-independent - so the
mobile user is not restricted in anyway.



                                                   Page 112/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009


At the heart of the Apollo solution are a number of key features;

• Session management: providing reliable IP connectivity including the ability to ride out loss of connections
and coverage – a true Brand innovation.
• Compression / TCP Optimisation
• Military grade VPN that can secure unreliable wide area connections without the constant need to remake
connections when they fail.
• Authentication, with full certificate based single sign-on.
• Support for ‘push’ as a solution in the form of a LAN extension – Apollo has the ability to cause the client
to make a GPRS connection from a central point.
• Content Optimisation – incorporating a application layer optimizer.
• System and device management: Brand’s customer care management system is designed for carriers or large
enterprise implementations and provides a host of information such as device type PC/PDA, operating system
version, Brand Apollo client versions, phone type and version, WLAN/LAN card type and version, location
based information, volume of data moved plus many other parameters. This information is captured on a real
time basis and is network independent. The solution also has full SNMP management.
• Location based services: An integral GPS/GIS positioning transport means that users do not need additional
applications. It also has a WiFi positioning mechanism so that the service owner can know at any time what
AP a user is connected to. It also has a CELLid location based system where a service provider can see from
the customer care what base station a user can see at any time.
• Multiple concurrent, active data sessions - GPRS/3G/WiFi and WiMAX, for example.
• Messaging transport and API: this can deliver popup messages or browser pages on the client screen
initiated by the carrier at any time based on location, activity or random. It can also be used for emergency
services for informing individuals or informing all of an event.
• Layer 2 Encryption of VLANS – Brand is a genuine layer 2 product which can be configured as an
advanced router, or in its switched mode, a Cisco ILS or standard 802.1Q trunk.
• VOIP Prioritisation - VOIP traffic is both prioritised over the network and optimised on delivery. If you
were to roll out Apollo to all your terminals then your IP network backbone would benefit from a bias for
VOIP traffic.
• Endpoint Data Security and Encryption Features - provides organisations with first class defence security.
Brand ensures a secure means for accessing a private network and transferring sensitive data over public IP
networks by employing authentication, data encryption and recovery.

For the WiMAX or mobile carrier the Brand solution could be deployed as a managed mobility platform with
federated authentication and user identity management. The system could be deployed in carriers that have
single or multiple communications products such as WiMAX and EVDO or where they want to deliver
ubiquitous networks by involving third party providers of other systems. The system can be scaled with a
global architecture and does not suffer from the restrictions that hinder the Home Agent (HA) in a mobile IP
network through loading or relationships with unrelated networks. The client installs on laptops and PDA’s
and, along with the infrastructure, manages the configuration, the device, the connection, the security,
optimisation and prioritisation / QOS. The performance of the system is such that data normally transfers
faster net of the Brand Apollo VPN than none VPN traffic in a none Brand scenario. Add to that bonding and
you have a powerful, secure and reliable mobile broadband solution. Infrastructure interfaces that integrate
into content providers such as Google with AdSense and the carrier takes on the ability to consider new and
innovative commercial models.

It is unique in many ways both technically and in the number of integrated features that would ordinarily
involve a multitude of different applications and suppliers.



                                                  Page 113/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009


Some unique features include Bearer Bonding, extremely low overhead AES VPN which is especially
effective when used with VoIP, Trigger based location based services which operate over all bearer types and
facilitate PUSH messaging or advertising such as Google Adsense, inbuilt AVLS and ODBII for fleet
management, a unique hard disk encryption mechanism for both laptops and PDA’s that is keyed to network
credentials, a kill mechanism to disable compromised Enterprise or government devices.

The ability of the Brand solution to bond many different and often unrelated network bearers
(WiMAX+EVDO, WiMAX+WiFi+EVDO+HSDPA or any other combination) is unique. Done at layer2, this
bonding sits below the IP stack, is transparent to the application and so allows deployment of VLAN’s to
home or mobile workers over mobile EVDO, HSDPA or WiMAX be it .16 or last mile replacement whilst at
the same time securing the connection with a strong VPN.

The world we live in today is full of "islands" and a user on a 3G connection is not going to reconfigure his
environment when he moves to a WLAN hotspot, so will stay on 3G and the WLAN business model as we
have all seen is challenged.

Winners in this market will be those who deploy a seamless platform that removes the need to cater for
varying bearer types and which creates, and to use a well worn word from the 1990s, a homogenous network
agnostic to the provider but seamless to the user.

Whether it is voice and data, local area network (LAN) and wide area network (Wan), fixed and wireless, or
wireless and mobile, there is convergence going on there. Analysts still talk about the idea of ubiquitous
enterprise mobility (for an employee to be always connected wherever and whenever), as something that will
happen, not something that has. Take Forrester for example, an analyst group that follows this space very
closely. Forrester sees the combination of public cellular and Wi-Fi technology as the harbinger of a new
mobile network that will be a combination of short-range unlicensed technologies operated by their users and
users IT staffs and carrier-based solutions for connectivity outside of the enterprise.

The scale of the platform could be global and in fact the larger the footprint the larger the benefit. There will
come a time when we will have continuous connectivity and persistent presence on the internet and we will
not care what bearer type or carrier we are operating through. To achieve such a model, a seamless mobility
platform as comprehensive as the Brand solution would be essential to the success of such a model. The
system can be scaled from Enterprise use to carrier to global carrier and it is no exaggeration to say that this
could be one of the most disruptive technologies to hit the internet for many years. The system also has a fully
load balanced mesh networking protocol which can securely allow neighbours to engage in sharing bandwidth
that ownership, personal needs and security often prohibited. The hunger for higher bandwidth to deliver the
aspirations of HD content and wide area access to our personal home content will be in as much demand over
the next 18 months as the need today to get the emails from the office. Brand Apollo Anywhere solution is
best positioned to deliver such bandwidth aggregation and management agnostic to the hardware involved.

The seamless experience for the mobile user or global traveller is enormous. No longer will this seamless
experience be just the mission critical user but every user. The traveller, subscribed to his US account would
be able to watch ABC HD anywhere in the world as the platform ensures he adopts the presence of his choice.
The difficulties in implementing VoIP through NAT and PAT environments is eradicated and the converged
network, so often talked about has finally become a reality.

Lastly Brand has recently delivered broadband wireless for DC Government’s multi-agency mission-critical
applications. DC OCTO chose Brand Communications’ Apollo products to ensure that all the different public
and private communications networks performed seamlessly, and the many available islands of connectivity


                                                   Page 114/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009


could be bonded together into a single seamless high bandwidth connection. This filled in the holes in
coverage maps and mitigated congestion with all communications encrypted to military levels. With this
functionality, OCTO could confidently make the decision to use Clearwire’s WiMAX network for
mission-critical inauguration event communications.



43.2 Features or characteristics of Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless
Mobility Platform
Seamless Roaming and Bearer Bonding are key strengths for Brand. Despite having developed these
algorithms many years ago, many companies have still not developed anything near to the specification of
Brand’s. This gives Brand a leading role in the remote access market as it benefits users with huge savings in
cost and work time, as well as ensuring reliability.

Seamless Roaming- Moving between different wireless access environments can be a challenge to any
mobile user. Connections between the client and server can fail. The Brand solution removes all the
uncertainty of using wireless networks and can provide seamless roaming across all bearers or aggregate them
as required to achieve a high-speed service, whilst ensuring continuity of connection without any user
intervention.

For example, a mobile user who is on a wireless LAN and walks out of coverage could automatically have
their session re-directed over a GPRS connection while maintaining the integrity of the session. A wireless
LAN user on a corporate LAN may roam over of his coverage footprint and drop onto a public WLAN
connection; the system manages the changing subnets and continues the session over the changed
infrastructure and routing, so long as the session management server is visible through the new bearer.

Bearer Bonding - The ability of the Brand solution to bond many different and often unrelated network bearers
(WiFi+GPRS, WiMAX+WiFi+EVDO+HSPDA+GPRS or any other combination) into a single pool of
bandwidth is unique. Channel bonding is designed to utilise the bandwidth of multiple device connections
simultaneously. Brand’s bonding technology increases the speed of the connection by aggregating packet
networks, multiple DSL connections to overcome the local loop limitations.

The world we live in today is full of “islands” and a user on a 3G connection is not going to reconfigure his
environment when he moves to a WLAN hotspot, so by turning the many islands of connectivity into a single
virtual unified platform, will offer significant flexibility.


43.3 Principal benefits of Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility
Platform to operators/users
Brand’s Apollo solution is making today’s mobile data really work for consumers, SMEs, large corporates and
operators alike. Apollo has helped to significantly grow the number of active GPRS and GSM data users
worldwide and has delivered tangible paybacks to many networks and their users. Apollo continues to deliver
such rich benefits to tomorrow’s technologies.

Despite technology advances, today’s mobile services are often slow, unreliable, complex and expensive.
Apollo has overcome all of these problem areas by turning wireless data into an easy-to-use, off the shelf,
totally dependable solution, with key features including:



                                                  Page 115/161
                                            WBI Awards 2009


*   Seamless Roaming – dynamically switching between bearers without any data loss or user intervention
*   Call Recovery – data calls can fail, but Apollo picks up and carries on with no loss of data or session.
*   Security –high performance VPN security
*   True compatibility with all applications, phones and networks

To date many network carriers have enjoyed increased market share and revenues from using Brand’s mobility
solutions, while corporate such as NGT Transco, United Utilities, Scottish & Southern Energy, Yorkshire
Water, Northamptonshire Police and public authorities at home and overseas have enjoyed significant business
benefits.

Today’s changing workplace demands that more people need to work remotely with the full flexibility of the
services available to them when in the office. Email and Internet have become the standard means of
communication and wireless technologies such as GPRS, 3G and Wifi / WiMAX are well on the way to
replacing or, at the very least complimenting landlines. The business benefits of remote working are now
fully accepted and essential in the race to stay competitive and deliver value added customer service. In its
role as a remote worker enabler, Brand Communications has allowed hundreds of thousands of mobile and
remote users to achieve reliable and cost effective links to mission critical information resources.


43.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Brand Communications -
Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility Platform
The Brand solution is the only product that can seamlessly deliver the kind of transparent mobility that is
essential for reliable use of MSN, VoIP and enterprise applications over a myriad of devices. In addition to
this, Brand also offers the mandatory needs such as security, management and real deployment requirements.
Brand has always tried to stay at least two years ahead of its competition and this is a lead the Brand intends to
maintain through clever innovation and a precise and canny understanding of the real needs and wants of the
corporate and consumer user.

To date, the Brand solution has been proven in many global applications and is fast, reliable and secure and,
perhaps most importantly, it is simple to use. The complexity and functionality is hidden within the software
where it should be. Brand has achieved this success on mainly word of mouth marketing campaigns with very
little marketing and sales resource being used to this point.

Now, with the strengthened relationships created with many leading players in the US, Brand foresees these
key partnerships as the way forward with the expansion into overseas markets which will help increase
revenues and market share with a series of more intensive sales and marketing incentives.

Network Operators are also starting to investigate the wireless opportunities of WiMAX technology to help
enable “open roaming” across any network with seamless handoffs between the network and device. This is
creating a massive opportunity for Brand’s technology, which is key in creating “The Anywhere Network”,
which all operators are looking to offer in the next 3 years.

45.1 Introduction of LANCOM 1751 UMTS
The LANCOM 1751 UMTS is a professional VPN router that provides secure internet access and
multiple-site connectivity via a multitude of integrated wired and wireless interfaces: ADSL2+ and ISDN plus
UMTS/HSxPA/EDGE/GPRS – a unique combination offered by no other router on the market today.

The integrated UMTS/HSxPA/EDGE/GPRS modem allows for reliable mobile internet access – e.g.
in-vehicle, mobile ATMs – or cost-effective, instant internet connectivity at temporary locations (e.g.
construction sites). It also enables organizations in areas without landline broadband Internet connections to
benefit from high-speed internet access and web-based applications and business processes.


45.2 Features or characteristics of LANCOM 1751 UMTS
The LANCOM 1751 UMTS is unique when it comes to the multitude of interfaces – ADSL2+ and ISDN plus
UMTS/HSxPA/EDGE/GPRS – and security mechanisms – VPN, Stateful Inspection Firewall, Intrusion
Detection, Denial-of-Service Protection – integrated into one single, compact device. In addition, it features
four individually configurable switch ports that allow users to set up a fully functional LAN at the mobile or
temporary location without the need to install any further network equipment.

The 1751’s security package is complemented by a feature seen in no other VPN router on the market: an
anti-theft protection using ISDN self call backs (where available) or location determination via GPS. Using the
latter, organizations can specify the exact location of the router. In case of theft, the router will instantly stop
working – thus avoiding important access data to be retrieved from the device; a common security issue in
particular in the financial sector.

The LANCOM 1751 UMTS is also unique with respect to the reliability and availability of the internet
connection it provides: With mobile applications, this means that all that is required is some sort of cellular /
mobile phone network, starting from GPRS with its near 100 % percent coverage up to HSxPA with up to
14.6 Mbps on the downlink – the 1751 will automatically detect the optimal communications medium
available and switch, if required, back and forth between the standards, thus ensuring quasi-uninterrupted
internet connections even while on the move (in trains, busses, etc.). An optional external omni-directional
multi-band antenna for GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSDPA – the AirLancer Extender O-360-3G – ensures
optimum signal reception even under metal roofs or behind metal walls, e.g. in trains or construction trailers,
which would normally suffer from insufficient signal quality.

All of this makes the LANCOM 1751 UMTS the only truly business-ready mobile wireless broadband router
on the market.

                                            WBI Awards 2009




45.3 Principal benefits of LANCOM 1751 UMTS to operators/users
Principal benefits include:

-Uninterrupted, secure internet access connections at temporary sites or even while on the move; e.g. internet
services for first-class travellers in trains, internet access for service vehicles and vehicles for roving reporters
for live mobile reporting (faster and less expensive than satellite links).
-A world of unique, new services thanks to the quick and seamless integration of mobile & temporary
locations and services into corporate LANs via celluar networks and VPN tunnelling: For examples, banks use
the LANCOM 1751 UMTS to securely and easily connect mobile or temporary ATMs to their data centers;
PIN-based electronic payments are increasing enabled via UMTS in combination with VPN (in trains, at
shows & events); customs services use the 1751 for mobile customs controls (inspection of fully loaded trucks
via mobile x-ray scanners, real-time data comparison with the customs authorities via UMTS when
investigating suspicious loads).
-Unprecedented performance via the wireless, cellular link thanks to HSxPA support ensures fast, efficient
transmission even of high amounts of data (e.g. in project management of major building / construction
projects)
-Quick rollout: the LANCOM 1751 UMTS may be pre-configured at the IT department of an organization’s
headquarters, and then simply shipped to and switched on at the remote / mobile locations (where no IT
knowledge is required). Should several units with similar configuration be required at different sites (e.g. as is
usually the case with ATMs, retail shops, and many other areas of application), it is sufficient to configure one
unit and transfer the configuration to all other units. This allows for a fast rollout even of large installations
with several hundred or thousands of units.
-End-to-end business process & project management spanning traditional locations as well as mobile and
temporary sites.



45.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of LANCOM 1751 UMTS
The LANCOM 1751 targets all organizations that wish to deploy broadband Internet services in areas without
landline broadband Internet access or while on the move, plus all of those who wish to backup their primary,
landline, connection in order to achieve a near 100% availability of business-critical Internet and VPN
connections.

In a review published in December 2008, analysts from ABI Research assume that the market for business
(NOT consumer) WWAN router products (3G / UMTS routers) saw approximately 620,000 units in 2008, and
will increase to 1.14 million units shipped in 2014.

      49. Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility for TAP Maintenance & Engineering


Awards category:          Best Wireless Broadband Mobility Solution

49.1 Introduction of Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility for TAP Maintenance &
Engineering
Appear is the leading provider of context-aware software infrastructure designed to power the next generation
of mobile applications and services. Using situational information (context), the Appear IQ suite of products
transforms ordinary wireless data networks into rich multimedia channels that deliver information, voice,
video and messages to mobile computer users. By capturing context, analyzing context and reacting to
context, Appear's solution eliminates information overload and ensures users have exactly the information
they need, when and where they need it. With Appear software, devices and applications react in real-time to
users' changing needs.

Appear IQ, based on the Appear Context Engine, enables the push and synchronization of personalized
real-time information over the wireless network to handheld devices whenever the user enters or moves
between authorized wireless zones depending on the context of the user, for example user profile, specific
location, and connection type. In addition, the Appear Synchronization Module automates the complex
synchronization processes, supporting file upload and download, version control, release management, and
dynamic synchronization workflows between devices and the back office.

Appear IQ transforms standard wireless networks into powerful productivity tools by delivering relevant
information to mobile frontline employees in their workplace. Employees are now equipped to make informed
decisions and efficiently complete tasks, resulting in productivity gains, cost reduction, and improved
customer service. Mobile frontline employees are faced with dynamic tasks that are directly related to the time
of day and the context of their surrounding events. They need to access information quickly, without the
complexities of using a search engine, moving between files or navigating complicated downloads.
Furthermore, they can’t afford the administrative headache associated with managing the data and applications
loaded onto their devices
The Problem We Address
There is so much information around us these days that it is becoming unwieldy and unmanageable to handle
and process. If you think about the first time you used a search engine, remember how impressed you were
that it found what you were looking for? That’s rarely the case these days. Because the amount of information
being collected and processed continues to increase at an exponential rate, traditional approaches for
processing and presenting information need to change to keep the data relevant.

That’s where context-awareness comes in. Starting out as a computer science research area in universities
fifteen years ago, Appear has taken the concept out of Harvard, MIT and the Royal Institute of Technology
and turned it into commercially viable technology. Context will revolutionize how information is delivered,
received and presented because current approaches to the way people access and interact with data will no


                                                  Page 126/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009


longer be sustainable. No longer does the user even need to know what they’re looking for: the Appear
Context Engine analyses the user’s situation (context) and determines what information the user needs, what
applications and services, data, voice or video needs to be delivered and how other aspects of their mobile
solution need to react to the new situation.
The Power of Context
Context is best described as the information about the situation of a person or entity. There are several key
categories of contextual information, and location is only one of them:

-User
-Environment
-System/Network
-Location
-Time

When equipping a mobile workforce with PDAs, smartphones and other wireless devices, it is critical to
understand how employees will use these devices, and what it will cost to deploy and maintain a mobility
solution. It makes no sense to simply transfer desktop applications to wireless devices. Increasingly,
organizations want to package and deliver applications and information based on the user’s situation (context)
at the time a request enters the system. This translates into increased employee productivity, easier
development of new services, and an improved return on the organization’s mobility system. `

In a recent piece of research, Ivano Ortis, Program Manager Transportation & Retail at IDC commented: “we
find that context-aware mobile services are going a step beyond from location-based services. Location
information is still crucial, what's even more is the user context, i.e. the use of location, profile, language,
time, type of mobile device, network bandwidth availability information and so forth and so on. This translates
into a system that provides information services that are relevant to specific operative situations and
transportation business environments. As a result, we recognize an increasing focus on adopting mobile
context-aware solutions among Western European transportation companies”.

It is no surprise that the first adopters of context-aware technologies were leading European ground transport
operators, who face the same challenges: a constantly mobile workforce distributed in disparate geographical
locations, a dynamic and complex workflow model, requiring users to share and access real-time information
on the job.

These mobile workers – let’s call them ultra-mobile workers - have very different requirements from regular
mobile office workers: they focus on the field task or the customer in front of them, not the computer. They
work in a dynamic and distracting environment, not in a quiet, static location. They need the right information,
and the right tool to anticipate their requirements. They are constantly moving from one location to another.
They need real-time, instantaneous, on-the-spot information. They don’t have time to browse and search. They
need technology that is easy to understand, learn and use, even if mobile devices are not exactly like desktop
computers, with their small interfaces, poor data-entry capabilities and limited battery life.

For these ultra-mobile workers, context is the solution: context-aware computing means that the user’s current
situation is analyzed in order to decide what services are presented to the user, when services are launched or
stopped. This is very different compared to traditional desktop systems where direct user interaction is
required for services to start. The user experience is quicker, simpler and more efficient.

In practice, context information gives mobile users instantly updated access to customized services and
information. The platform enables mobile “on the job” connectivity to back end systems, enabling operations


                                                  Page 127/161
                                            WBI Awards 2009


staff to access key data immediately, and interact with systems directly. It enables an operator to harness the
full potential of its mobile workforce, delivering improvements in profitability of services, customer service
and resource utilisation.

Precise information about the end user’s context is collected from various sources and stored in the Context
Engine. For example, the location information can come from different sources, such as GPS, Cell-ID or
pinpoint indoor Wi-Fi triangulation. But context is much more than location. Context parameters can
encompass everything from date, time, location and user role to PIM data, task at hand and network
bandwidth. They can also include custom-made parameters such as outdoor temperature, the capacity of the
forklift the user is operating or any other information relevant to the specific domain (for example RFID
events in a baggage handling system).

When a request is made on the system, the Context Engine validates it against the rules-based engine that sits
at its core, and delivers the appropriate information and applications. The Context Engine allows applications
and services to be built and delivered in a modular fashion. This allows users to access relevant information
through simple icons at a certain time depending on the user’s context information. When the Context Engine
is integrated into a mobility platform, common features such as device management, synchronization,
provisioning and notification are greatly enhanced, creating an intelligent mobility environment.

Context brings operational performance for the air transportation industry organizations:
Challenge:
The airport environment is particularly complex, with a host of different resources, passengers and assets
needing to be managed, and multiple stakeholders in ground operations. This complexity – and the unusual
mobility of the workforce – makes airports ideally suited, however, to new mobile and wireless technologies,
which will help transform ground operations, driving improvements in turnaround times, supply chain
management, worker efficiency and passenger satisfaction

Solution :
The Appear IQ mobile innovation infrastructure addresses issues of data synchronization, device
management, and efficient workflow management for airside and terminal-side personnel. The solution is
flexible, scalable, and supports a variety of device types. The platform is able to interface airline/airport host
systems (for ex. Airport and Resource Management Systems, Baggage Handling Systems and Supply Chain
Management) with mobile devices across a variety of wireless data networks, such as WiFi and cellular
(EDGE, GPRS and 3G).


TAP Maintenance & Engineering, a daughter company of the Portuguese Airline decided to mobile-enable the
so called Line Maintenance mechanics operating in time-critical conditions on the apron during aircraft
turnarounds, so as to bring them relevant updated information about on-going jobs as well as upcoming tasks
in order to provide faster, more efficient services and increase delivery quality. Encompassing flight,
engineering work and compliance, data from maintenance control and dispatch coordinators are made
available on PDA’s of the ramp personnel in real-time, also allowing for reporting via integration to diverse
backend IT-systems.

Whereas other insular/silo standalone mobility workforce applications exist, rarely can off-the-shelf products
work in a Line Maintenance as the need to interconnect with so many diverse backend legacy systems is so
pivotal. The Appear AIQ platform can handle a cross-company IT-system integration, its unique
context-aware functionality further adds a possible automatized mobile-extension of large-screen
desktop-bound applications to a hybrid fleet of mobile devices, provisioning real-time data, setting up context

49.3 Principal benefits of Appear IQ - Context Aware Mobility for TAP Maintenance &
Engineering to operators/users
Prior to the deployment TAP M&E staff were using pen and paper. Positive impact can be attributed to a
change of collaboration behavior and willingness among both middle-management and technical staff to
revamp the workflow and overhaul the task-oriented processes.
The solution for the TAP proof-of-concept is a three-tiered architecture, where existing TAP back-end systems
will connect to Appear IQ mobility platform. The main server is hosted and provided as a shared ASP-service
- with a view to service all TAP M&E airports in the future. At each site, there is a proxy-server as a second
tier which handles all the local processing and interface with both TAP IT-systems and all the handheld
terminals. These handhelds provision the tools to the ramp mechanics, and thus mobile-enable the current
manual work-processes. The benefits sought by the Line Maintenance division of TAP M&E is a combination
of firm performance indicators, improved efficiency, raised operational quality, curbed peak traffic stress,
improved teamwork and supervisor communication.

Awards category:           Best Wireless Broadband Mobility Solution
Company:                   iPass
Vote stats:                Total: 23    Average: 4.6


51.1 Introduction of iPass Mobile Office
After initially floundering for a number of years, mobile broadband technology has finally taken off. With
maturing capabilities and cheaper prices, mobile broadband connectivity has now become a mainstream
method for getting online on the move. Enabling employees to work anywhere, at any time has become a key
requirement at most companies and a wide selection of broadband technologies is available to make
connections from a variety of locations. However, the sheer number of access technologies, price plans,
networks and access softwareclients adds a lot of management and support complexities for the IT department.


Whilst on the move, iPass Mobile Office gives remote and mobile workers one simple global service for
secure broadband access via 3G mobile broadband, Wi-Fi and other access technologies. Companies can
centrally control mobile connections, devices and costs using iPass’ integrated management platform.
Potentially spiralling mobility costs are effectively managed with a flat-rate pricing plan – competitively
priced on an active user model - virtually eliminating the need for individual wireless subscriptions and day
passes. Also excessive data roaming charges when relying on 3G abroad are a thing of the past with iPass
Mobile Office as users will be able to fall back on the iPass Global Broadband Roaming network, including
more than 100,000 wireless access points, when leaving their home country. Thereby the iPass service
provides companies with full visibility and cost predictability of their IT budget.

Whether connecting using 3G on a train in Sweden, DSL at home in the US or over a Wi-Fi connection at
Heathrow Airport, iPass users connect via the same familiar user interface using a one-click process. This
interface (the iPassConnect™ mobility manager) unifies remote connectivity, credentials security, device
assessment, remediation and software patching, NT domain login and VPN launch, all of which are entirely
invisible to the end user.

iPass customers currently have secure access to over 100,000 wireless broadband business locations
worldwide, with mobile broadband services available on three continents, including services for UK, the
Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark.

In addition to providing accessible connections to employees on the fly, the mobile device management
capabilities of iPass Mobile Office give the IT department visibility over devices that may rarely return to the
office or connect to the corporate LAN. It also enables the remote management of these devices by ensuring
security validation, device authentication and patch management. For example, iPass Mobile Office enables
IT departments to enforce the consistent use of VPN’s, firewalls and anti-virus software as part of the
connection process.

51.2 Features or characteristics of iPass Mobile Office
Mobile Office provides the IT department with a single unified service that greatly simplifies enterprise
mobility by offering greater cost predictability and control and reducing end-user training and support
requirements. It features the world’s largest mobile broadband virtual network with more than 100,000 Wi-Fi
hotspots, hotel Ethernet and dial-up access points in over 160 countries and now 3G mobile broadband
available in eight different countries.

Through the active user-based flat rate pricing plan, companies can roll out Mobile Office to all users, even
those with occasional needs, and pay a single monthly amount based only on those who actually connect in a
given month. This ensures that IT budgets are not pressured by heavy users or wasted on unused subscriptions
and organisations can stay on top of their remote access expenditure by avoiding extortionate Wi-Fi hotspot
day rates.

Mobile Office now also offers broad device support ranging from Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Apple Mac to
Windows Mobile, Symbian smartphone and the iPhone. This means that organisations can standardise on a
single service worldwide and eliminate expensive-to-manage patchwork of local, regional and individual
solutions, in turn lowering IT costs.


51.3 Principal benefits of iPass Mobile Office to operators/users
Given the economic climate, mobile working has become an increasingly essential part of business, with over
one million people located across 3,500 organisations relying on iPass services each quarter. There are many
economic benefits to this new working culture, including maximised productivity by lowering down time
whilst out of the office, reduced costs of running a corporate fleet and less sick leave and absenteeism.

iPass also gives its customers the opportunity to monitor mobile broadband service usage. For example, iPass
will send alerts to the IT staff should a user go over 1 GB of bandwidth in a week. In addition to reduced costs
and enhanced sustainability, being an aggregator allows iPass to provide a single point of contact for a
customer, both in terms of provisioning, maintaining and supporting a high quality service. iPass constantly
collects useful information related to each connection, regardless of access type, thereby providing a more
streamlined approach to troubleshooting, resulting in enhanced customer service.

“The iPass service drives people to use a single client. This has not only improved the end-user experience,
but also reduced our number of help desk calls by 75 percent. And we haven’t had to hire a single additional
staff member to manage our remote access, even as our company has quadrupled in size.” – Richard Wagner,
Director of IT Infrastructure, Hexion Specialty Chemicals


51.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of iPass Mobile Office
There is excellent commercial potential for iPass Mobile Office in the enterprise market. iPass has over one
million unique quarterly users and already counts over 40% of the FTSE 100 as customers, as well as more
than 400 of the Forbes Global 2000, including companies such as Scania, BG Group, Nokia, Volvo Group and
Philips to name but a few.


                                                  Page 134/161
                                         WBI Awards 2009

53.1 Introduction of Dilithium Video Optimizer (DVO)
Dilithium Video Optimizer (DVO) is a platform that enables service providers to extend the reach of
value-added video services beyond their initial boundaries. The DVO enables dynamic video traffic shaping at
the video layer. With minimal effort by the service and content providers, it allows services intended for a
specific device (e.g. Broadband PCs) to be made available to other devices, such as mobile handsets and DVB
set-top boxes, by performing real time transcoding and transport adaptation. The adaptation process also
allows the DVO to work transparently with native browsers or streaming players on all devices.

Also, by virtue of its programmability, DVO enables services for all terminal types to be extended through the
support of customized playlists or live ad-insertion (pre-roll, post-roll). This can provide richer and more
profitable services for all customers, as well as a ‘best of breed’ experience across devices.

53.2 Features or characteristics of Dilithium Video Optimizer (DVO)
DVO is the only product in the market which supports the wide range of mobile devices for both on-demand
and live content, including all 2.5G and 3G smartphones such as iPhone and Android devices. It is unique in
that it supports true on-demand transcoding and transport adaptation with control using customer defined
scripting, allowing operators to extend existing services to new target devices and to develop brand new
services which are not possible using another means.

53.3 Principal benefits of Dilithium Video Optimizer (DVO) to operators/users
Mobile video rendering has traditionally been performed in batch mode, where video are pre-transcoded.
Batch mode is resource intensive. Given the multitude of mobile devices with different screen sizes, resolution
and video standards, it is not unusual for video to be encoded in over 20 combinations of formats and bit rates.
This redundant encoding significantly increases server requirements, storage and system management. As a
highly scalable real-time encoding solution, DVO significantly reduces capex and opex by up to 75%.
Break-even occurs within the first year of service launch.

DVO can also deliver both on-demand and live content to all video capable handsets including iPhone and
Android based devices. Delivery is possible using both RTSP streaming and HTTP progressive download
meaning that the service is accessible to all video capable handsets.

Additionally, unlike traditional mobile video services, DVO does not require download and installation of a
device client application. Rather, it relies on subscriber handset’s native media player. From the operators’
perspective, DVO drastically improves handset interoperability, speed to market and user experience. By
deploying the DVO, service providers can immediately provide a significantly better user experience as

content can be displayed faster, with less buffering on devices and without degradation of video quality.

53.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Dilithium Video
Optimizer (DVO)
DVO can be deployed as part of any operator’s converged video solution for mobile and broadband services.
DVO has already been selected and integrated by many leading operators including France Telecom, BSNL
(India) and Chunghwa Telecom (Taiwan) who are in the process of commercially launching the DVO
solution.

According to In-Stat, the global market for smartphones— including iPhone— is expected to reach more than
375 million by 2013, doubling current market share.

        57. Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility Platform


Awards category:           Best Wireless Broadband Roaming Product or Solution
Company:                   Brand Communications Ltd
Vote stats:                Total: 8   Average: 8


57.1 Introduction of Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility
Platform
Brand Communications wireless technology ‘Apollo Anywhere’ offers a number of significant advantages
when deploying mobile solutions for uninterrupted access to corporate LAN applications including e-mail,
internet and any business application, anywhere, anyplace at anytime.

Apollo provides a remote user (i.e. a user who for some reason cannot be physically connected to a LAN
environment) with full access to LAN and/or Internet Services, via whatever communications medium is
available. By definition remote users can be mobile (e.g. train or car), in a hotel room, in a customer’s
premises, in a truly remote location, or working from home. In these examples, the typical communications
options are ISDN, PSTN, GSM, GPRS, HSCSD, Satellite, WLAN (802.11b), WIMAX (802.16), HSDP, DVB
or 3G. Apollo allows the remote user to connect into the LAN environment via the chosen communications
system in a simple, secure, resilient, high speed and cost effective manner.

The Apollo solution has been designed to move with the advances in technology. It is an innovative mobile
data client / server solution that compliments the user’s choice of hardware platform and software
applications. Unlike some solutions that expect the user to make dramatic changes, Apollo seamlessly extends
the LAN environment at both ends via its transparent hardware and software elements. Apollo consists of
software for the mobile user and a hardware / software access solution within the network or LAN
environment.

The technology is one of the most comprehensive communications solutions available. It manages devices,
both LAN and modem oriented. This device management extends to the integrity of the link, the device itself,
power management of the device as well as authentication onto the respective networks using a portfolio of
protocols.

The Brand solution enables a mobile data user to maintain a virtual connection, 100% of the time, to any data
source they are connecting to, whether the Internet, or a private network for example. Providing a level of
reliability, speed and performance that is needed in today’s critical business applications.

The key to Brand’s technology is the global seamless roaming which overcomes wireless network
geographical coverage limitations, low throughput and high latency problems. Brand enables the user to
maintain as efficient a connection as possible through integrated compression and suppression of network data
- only real data is transmitted, as well as ensuring a secure connection with authentication, encryption, firewall
and optional VPN tunnelling. All of which is application - independent, as well as device-independent - so the
mobile user is not restricted in anyway.


                                                   Page 148/161
                                          WBI Awards 2009



At the heart of the Apollo solution are a number of key features;

• Session management: providing reliable IP connectivity including the ability to ride out loss of connections
and coverage – a true Brand innovation.
• Compression / TCP Optimisation
• Military grade VPN that can secure unreliable wide area connections without the constant need to remake
connections when they fail.
• Authentication, with full certificate based single sign-on.
• Support for ‘push’ as a solution in the form of a LAN extension – Apollo has the ability to cause the client
to make a GPRS connection from a central point.
• Content Optimisation – incorporating a application layer optimizer.
• System and device management: Brand’s customer care management system is designed for carriers or large
enterprise implementations and provides a host of information such as device type PC/PDA, operating system
version, Brand Apollo client versions, phone type and version, WLAN/LAN card type and version, location
based information, volume of data moved plus many other parameters. This information is captured on a real
time basis and is network independent. The solution also has full SNMP management.
• Location based services: An integral GPS/GIS positioning transport means that users do not need additional
applications. It also has a WiFi positioning mechanism so that the service owner can know at any time what
AP a user is connected to. It also has a CELLid location based system where a service provider can see from
the customer care what base station a user can see at any time.
• Multiple concurrent, active data sessions - GPRS/3G/WiFi and WiMAX, for example.
• Messaging transport and API: this can deliver popup messages or browser pages on the client screen
initiated by the carrier at any time based on location, activity or random. It can also be used for emergency
services for informing individuals or informing all of an event.
• Layer 2 Encryption of VLANS – Brand is a genuine layer 2 product which can be configured as an
advanced router, or in its switched mode, a Cisco ILS or standard 802.1Q trunk.
• VOIP Prioritisation - VOIP traffic is both prioritised over the network and optimised on delivery. If you
were to roll out Apollo to all your terminals then your IP network backbone would benefit from a bias for
VOIP traffic.
• Endpoint Data Security and Encryption Features - provides organisations with first class defence security.
Brand ensures a secure means for accessing a private network and transferring sensitive data over public IP
networks by employing authentication, data encryption and recovery.

For the WiMAX or mobile carrier the Brand solution could be deployed as a managed mobility platform with
federated authentication and user identity management. The system could be deployed in carriers that have
single or multiple communications products such as WiMAX and EVDO or where they want to deliver
ubiquitous networks by involving third party providers of other systems. The system can be scaled with a
global architecture and does not suffer from the restrictions that hinder the Home Agent (HA) in a mobile IP
network through loading or relationships with unrelated networks. The client installs on laptops and PDA’s
and, along with the infrastructure, manages the configuration, the device, the connection, the security,
optimisation and prioritisation / QOS. The performance of the system is such that data normally transfers
faster net of the Brand Apollo VPN than none VPN traffic in a none Brand scenario. Add to that bonding and
you have a powerful, secure and reliable mobile broadband solution. Infrastructure interfaces that integrate
into content providers such as Google with AdSense and the carrier takes on the ability to consider new and
innovative commercial models.

It is unique in many ways both technically and in the number of integrated features that would ordinarily
involve a multitude of different applications and suppliers.


                                                  Page 149/161
                                           WBI Awards 2009



Some unique features include Bearer Bonding, extremely low overhead AES VPN which is especially
effective when used with VoIP, Trigger based location based services which operate over all bearer types and
facilitate PUSH messaging or advertising such as Google Adsense, inbuilt AVLS and ODBII for fleet
management, a unique hard disk encryption mechanism for both laptops and PDA’s that is keyed to network
credentials, a kill mechanism to disable compromised Enterprise or government devices.

The ability of the Brand solution to bond many different and often unrelated network bearers
(WiMAX+EVDO, WiMAX+WiFi+EVDO+HSDPA or any other combination) is unique. Done at layer2, this
bonding sits below the IP stack, is transparent to the application and so allows deployment of VLAN’s to
home or mobile workers over mobile EVDO, HSDPA or WiMAX be it .16 or last mile replacement whilst at
the same time securing the connection with a strong VPN.

The world we live in today is full of "islands" and a user on a 3G connection is not going to reconfigure his
environment when he moves to a WLAN hotspot, so will stay on 3G and the WLAN business model as we
have all seen is challenged.

Winners in this market will be those who deploy a seamless platform that removes the need to cater for
varying bearer types and which creates, and to use a well worn word from the 1990s, a homogenous network
agnostic to the provider but seamless to the user.

Whether it is voice and data, local area network (LAN) and wide area network (Wan), fixed and wireless, or
wireless and mobile, there is convergence going on there. Analysts still talk about the idea of ubiquitous
enterprise mobility (for an employee to be always connected wherever and whenever), as something that will
happen, not something that has. Take Forrester for example, an analyst group that follows this space very
closely. Forrester sees the combination of public cellular and Wi-Fi technology as the harbinger of a new
mobile network that will be a combination of short-range unlicensed technologies operated by their users and
users IT staffs and carrier-based solutions for connectivity outside of the enterprise.

The scale of the platform could be global and in fact the larger the footprint the larger the benefit. There will
come a time when we will have continuous connectivity and persistent presence on the internet and we will
not care what bearer type or carrier we are operating through. To achieve such a model, a seamless mobility
platform as comprehensive as the Brand solution would be essential to the success of such a model. The
system can be scaled from Enterprise use to carrier to global carrier and it is no exaggeration to say that this
could be one of the most disruptive technologies to hit the internet for many years. The system also has a fully
load balanced mesh networking protocol which can securely allow neighbours to engage in sharing bandwidth
that ownership, personal needs and security often prohibited. The hunger for higher bandwidth to deliver the
aspirations of HD content and wide area access to our personal home content will be in as much demand over
the next 18 months as the need today to get the emails from the office. Brand Apollo Anywhere solution is
best positioned to deliver such bandwidth aggregation and management agnostic to the hardware involved.

The seamless experience for the mobile user or global traveller is enormous. No longer will this seamless
experience be just the mission critical user but every user. The traveller, subscribed to his US account would
be able to watch ABC HD anywhere in the world as the platform ensures he adopts the presence of his choice.
The difficulties in implementing VoIP through NAT and PAT environments is eradicated and the converged
network, so often talked about has finally become a reality.

Mobility Platform
Seamless Roaming and Bearer Bonding are key strengths for Brand. Despite having developed these
algorithms many years ago, many companies have still not developed anything near to the specification of
Brand’s. This gives Brand a leading role in the remote access market as it benefits users with huge savings in
cost and work time, as well as ensuring reliability.

Seamless Roaming- Moving between different wireless access environments can be a challenge to any
mobile user. Connections between the client and server can fail. The Brand solution removes all the
uncertainty of using wireless networks and can provide seamless roaming across all bearers or aggregate them
as required to achieve a high-speed service, whilst ensuring continuity of connection without any user
intervention.

For example, a mobile user who is on a wireless LAN and walks out of coverage could automatically have
their session re-directed over a GPRS connection while maintaining the integrity of the session. A wireless
LAN user on a corporate LAN may roam over of his coverage footprint and drop onto a public WLAN
connection; the system manages the changing subnets and continues the session over the changed
infrastructure and routing, so long as the session management server is visible through the new bearer.

Bearer Bonding - The ability of the Brand solution to bond many different and often unrelated network bearers
(WiFi+GPRS, WiMAX+WiFi+EVDO+HSPDA+GPRS or any other combination) into a single pool of
bandwidth is unique. Channel bonding is designed to utilise the bandwidth of multiple device connections
simultaneously. Brand’s bonding technology increases the speed of the connection by aggregating packet
networks, multiple DSL connections to overcome the local loop limitations.

The world we live in today is full of “islands” and a user on a 3G connection is not going to reconfigure his
environment when he moves to a WLAN hotspot, so by turning the many islands of connectivity into a single
virtual unified platform, will offer significant flexibility.


57.3 Principal benefits of Brand Communications - Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility
Platform to operators/users
Brand’s Apollo solution is making today’s mobile data really work for consumers, SMEs, large corporates and
operators alike. Apollo has helped to significantly grow the number of active GPRS and GSM data users
worldwide and has delivered tangible paybacks to many networks and their users. Apollo continues to deliver
such rich benefits to tomorrow’s technologies.

Despite technology advances, today’s mobile services are often slow, unreliable, complex and expensive.
Apollo has overcome all of these problem areas by turning wireless data into an easy-to-use, off the shelf,
totally dependable solution, with key features including:

*   Seamless Roaming – dynamically switching between bearers without any data loss or user intervention
*   Call Recovery – data calls can fail, but Apollo picks up and carries on with no loss of data or session.
*   Security –high performance VPN security
*   True compatibility with all applications, phones and networks

To date many network carriers have enjoyed increased market share and revenues from using Brand’s mobility
solutions, while corporate such as NGT Transco, United Utilities, Scottish & Southern Energy, Yorkshire
Water, Northamptonshire Police and public authorities at home and overseas have enjoyed significant business


                                                    Page 151/161

benefits.

Today’s changing workplace demands that more people need to work remotely with the full flexibility of the
services available to them when in the office. Email and Internet have become the standard means of
communication and wireless technologies such as GPRS, 3G and Wifi / WiMAX are well on the way to
replacing or, at the very least complimenting landlines. The business benefits of remote working are now
fully accepted and essential in the race to stay competitive and deliver value added customer service. In its
role as a remote worker enabler, Brand Communications has allowed hundreds of thousands of mobile and
remote users to achieve reliable and cost effective links to mission critical information resources.


57.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Brand Communications -
Apollo Anywhere Seamless Mobility Platform
The Brand solution is the only product that can seamlessly deliver the kind of transparent mobility that is
essential for reliable use of MSN, VoIP and enterprise applications over a myriad of devices. In addition to
this, Brand also offers the mandatory needs such as security, management and real deployment requirements.
Brand has always tried to stay at least two years ahead of its competition and this is a lead the Brand intends to
maintain through clever innovation and a precise and canny understanding of the real needs and wants of the
corporate and consumer user.

To date, the Brand solution has been proven in many global applications and is fast, reliable and secure and,
perhaps most importantly, it is simple to use. The complexity and functionality is hidden within the software
where it should be. Brand has achieved this success on mainly word of mouth marketing campaigns with very
little marketing and sales resource being used to this point.

Now, with the strengthened relationships created with many leading players in the US, Brand foresees these
key partnerships as the way forward with the expansion into overseas markets which will help increase
revenues and market share with a series of more intensive sales and marketing incentives.

Network Operators are also starting to investigate the wireless opportunities of WiMAX technology to help
enable “open roaming” across any network with seamless handoffs between the network and device. This is
creating a massive opportunity for Brand’s technology, which is key in creating “The Anywhere Network”,
which all operators are looking to offer in the next 3 years.

58.1 Introduction of Global Broadband Roaming
With the office realms constantly expanding, iPass offers a complete solution to deliver true enterprise
mobility while taking the pain out of managing mobile connections and devices. The iPass Mobile Office
service not only unifies the management of disparate connection technologies, device types and security tools
into a single solution, but also allows its enterprise customers to take advantage of flat-rate pricing packages
that meet the needs of both occasional, regional travelers as well as truly mobile executives who travel abroad
extensively and require the flexibility and high availability of Mobile Broadband anywhere they go. Mobile
broadband services vary, and not all users fit nicely into a given carrier’s service plans. Some carriers limit
3G access to their own network, others have roaming agreements for international travel and some plans let
you bundle local 3G and Wi-Fi. iPass enables companies to combine the ubiquitous availability of Mobile
Broadband – the iPass Mobile Broadband UK service roaming option includes GPRS availability in 130
countries – with the high bandwidth reliability of its global Wi-Fi network currently including over 108,000
hotspots for a combined global flat-rate.

Through this service companies can centrally control mobile connections and devices using the integrated
management platform. Spiralling mobility costs are also effectively managed through flat-rate pricing that
virtually eliminates the need for individual wireless subscriptions and day passes and executive benefit from
unlimited 3G mobile broadband roaming in 128 countries.


58.2 Features or characteristics of Global Broadband Roaming
iPass already owns a strategic piece of real estate, the mobile worker's platform to the Internet. The iPass
service is global and spans over 300 provider networks. Access is provided via 3G, Wi-Fi, dial-up and other
technologies using a one-click connection process via a single user interface to gain access to the world’s
largest virtual network in over 160 countries worldwide including a total of over 108,000 Wi-Fi hotspots.
With 3G networks evolving towards true broadband speeds, enterprises require solutions that unify multiple
technologies with numerous providers on a global basis in order to efficiently and affordably make the mobile
workforce productive. iPass currently offers 3G mobile broadband in Asia, North America and Europe with
more partnerships to be announced this year.

Whether connecting using 3G on a train, DSL at home, the company WLAN in the office or a Wi-Fi
connection at the airport, iPass users always connect via the same familiar user interface following a one-click
process. This interface (the iPassConnect™ mobility manager) unifies remote connectivity, credentials
security, device assessment, remediation and software patching, NT domain login and VPN launch, all of
which are entirely invisible to the end user.

Implementation is made easy by the fact that the device support ranges from Windows 2000, XP, Vista and
Apple Mac laptops to Windows Mobile 6 and Symbian platforms as well as the iPhone, thus enabling
organisations to standardise on a single service worldwide and eliminate expensive to manage patchworks of
local, regional and individual solutions.


58.3 Principal benefits of Global Broadband Roaming to operators/users
Mobile users need convenient broadband access wherever their work takes them in order to stay productive
and maintain connectivity with customers, colleagues and partners. When not given an adequate solution by
their company, they will go to great lengths to get online, buying day passes or monthly subscriptions at full
retail prices and then charging costs back to the company in expense reports. According to Gartner, up to 70%
of employee broadband usage is not managed by the IT department, contributing to a phenomenon called the
‘black budget’. iPass Mobile Office unifies mobility management over any Internet connection to optimise
mobile access, centrally manage devices and connections as well as control the cost of mobility. This can be
particularly useful when connecting to new technologies such as 3G which can often result in high roaming
costs outside of the home country.

In terms of performance enhancements, iPass is currently working hard to create a new service delivery
platform that will comprise of client software that delivers persistent, hassle-free connectivity as well as
flexible back-end systems that live in the cloud. This, in turn, will enable iPass, its partners and customers to
easily define and build their own highly customised service offerings.

This "Salesforce.com-like" platform will facilitate plug in value-added services, expand channel presence with
"white label" relationships and extend served market to the small and medium enterprise (SME) segment.

With regards to the financial benefits of the iPass service, Sinlapachai Thammarungsri, IT Manager at Nestlé
Middle East noted that, “in the past, we relied on the Infonet service, but after migrating to iPass, Nestle
achieved huge cost savings of more than 50% of the previous Infonet charges. The service is simple and
straightforward and can be enrolled and user ready within 10 minutes.”


58.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Global Broadband
Roaming
iPass services are used by over one million people at 3,500 organisations each quarter and the outlook is
extremely positive for mobile broadband, regardless of the gloomy economic predictions. A recent survey
conducted by iPass, showed that European business use of Wi-Fi hotspots eclipsed North America in the first
half of 2008. Europe grew its use 89% year over year and now accounts for 47% of global use, equating for
nearly 70% of the growth in global Wi-Fi. This is a clear indicator that employees worldwide continue to do
more work away from the office, be it on a business trip, commuting, or checking email at a nearby café.

Both Wi-Fi hotspots and 3G mobile broadband are playing an important role in keeping the workforce
productive, and it is expected that WiMAX and other 4G technologies will continue this trend towards a
ubiquitously connected multi-technology world.

                                       59. Mocana NanoWireless


Awards category:          Best Wireless Broadband Security Innovation
Company:                  Mocana
Vote stats:               Total: 15    Average: 3


59.1 Introduction of Mocana NanoWireless
Mocana’s NanoWireless is a standards-based, full featured, IEEE-compliant WPA2 client software solution
that is easy to use. The Mocana NanoWPA2 solution is uniquely architected with an asynchronous core to
fully leverage hardware acceleration, is available now on over 1,000 CPU/OS combinations, and features the
smallest memory footprint on the market.
WPA2 provides all the functions necessary to create fully 802.11i-compliant station management entity
(SME). The SME can establish a secure association with a defined access point (AP) in infrastructure mode
(ESS), and be part of a wireless robust secure network (RSN). Additionally, Mocana WPA2 enables you to
perform preauthentication to support speedy handover from AP to AP. And it’s all available in full source
code, or as binaries for virtually any CPU/OS combination you can possibly imagine.



59.2 Features or characteristics of Mocana NanoWireless
Like all of Mocana’s products, NanoWireless has been specifically designed and developed for the constrained
environments of devices. A wireless router or gateway requires a different breed of solution than a PC –
devices like these require security solutions that do not sap processor power or battery life. NanoWireless
provides the ultra-small footprint necessary for devices while at the same time providing the high-level of
performance that Mocana’s product line has become synonymous with.

59.3 Principal benefits of Mocana NanoWireless to operators/users
Until recently, embedded developers were forced to "roll their own" WPA2 implementations, or to laboriously
port implementations originally designed for PCs or server platforms. This meant weeks of additional
development and testing time, on top of an already-compressed embedded development schedule. But now
there’s NanoWireless, from Mocana.
With NanoWireless, embedded developers need not spend time and money on coding and testing their own
WPA2 solutions. By embedding NanoWireless on devices, developers can speed development of wireless
routers, gateways, and other devices.



59.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Mocana NanoWireless
Mocana is privately held, and does not release sales numbers or marketing intelligence. However, we see the
potential market for this SDK as very large: virtually every company that sells a wireless access point, router
or client is a potential customer.

60.1 Introduction of LANCOM 1751 UMTS

The LANCOM 1751 UMTS is a professional VPN router that provides secure internet access and
multiple-site connectivity via a multitude of integrated wired and wireless interfaces: ADSL2+ and ISDN plus
UMTS/HSxPA/EDGE/GPRS – a unique combination offered by no other router on the market today.

It combines the flexibility of wireless broadband with the security of a full-featured high-end business VPN
router. It offers IPsec VPN with multiple VPN channels, a Stateful Inspection Firewall, Intrusion Detection
and Denial-of-Service Protection – for 100% secure, wireless networking via the public cellular / mobile
phone network.


60.2 Features or characteristics of LANCOM 1751 UMTS
The LANCOM 1751 UMTS is unique when it comes to the multitude of interfaces – ADSL2+ and ISDN plus
UMTS/HSxPA/EDGE/GPRS – and security mechanisms. While other 3G routers are merely large UMTS
modems, the 1751 offers all the features organizations expect from a professional VPN router for landline
connections – also for wireless broadband links: IPsec VPN with multiple, parallel channels (up to 25),
Stateful Inspection Firewall, Intrusion Detection, Denial-of-Service Protection. Plus: it fully supports the
concept of Virtual LANs (VLAN), allowing organizations to set up securely separated, logical networks –
LAN and WAN – on the basis of one physical router and internet connection.

The 1751’s security package is complemented by a feature seen in no other VPN router on the market: an
anti-theft protection using ISDN self call backs (where available) or location determination via GPS. Using the
latter, organizations can specify the exact location of the router. In case of theft, the router will instantly stop
working – thus avoiding important access data to be retrieved from the device; a common security issue in
particular in the financial sector.

The LANCOM 1751 UMTS is also unique with respect to the reliability and availability of the internet
connection it provides. By combining landline and wireless connectivity, it provides up to 100% availability
of business-critical internet and VPN connections by switching automatically e.g. to UMTS should the
standard DSL connection fail.

All of this makes the LANCOM 1751 UMTS the only truly business-ready wireless broadband router on the
market.

60.3 Principal benefits of LANCOM 1751 UMTS to operators/users
Principal benefits include:

-Secure internet access connections at temporary sites or even while on the move
-100% secure VPN connections for confidential, business-critical communications via public cellular / mobile
phone networks; e.g. customs services use the 1751 for mobile customs controls (inspection of fully loaded
trucks via mobile x-ray scanners, real-time data comparison with the customs authorities via UMTS when
investigating suspicious loads).
-100% security for critical access data (passwords, etc.) thanks to the router’s anti-theft mechanisms; e. g. for
networked ATMs, small bank branches, etc.
-Up to 100% availability of the internet/VPN connection by combining landline and wireless access
(DSL/UMTS); e.g. for PIN-based electronic payments in the retail business and other business-critical
processes and services
-Quick rollout: the LANCOM 1751 UMTS may be pre-configured at the IT department of an organization’s
headquarters, and then simply shipped to and switched on at the remote / mobile locations (where no IT
knowledge is required). Should several units with similar configuration be required at different sites (e.g. as is
usually the case with ATMs, retail shops, and many other areas of application), it is sufficient to configure one
unit and transfer the configuration to all other units. This allows for a fast rollout even of large installations
with several hundred or thousands of units.


60.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of LANCOM 1751 UMTS
The LANCOM 1751 targets all organizations that wish to deploy broadband Internet services in areas without
landline broadband Internet access or while on the move, plus all of those who wish to backup their primary,
landline, connection in order to achieve a near 100% availability of business-critical Internet and VPN
connections.

In a review published in December 2008, analysts from ABI Research assume that the market for business
(NOT consumer) WWAN router products (3G / UMTS routers) saw approximately 620,000 units in 2008, and
will increase to 1.14 million units shipped in 2014.

managed installation for a trouble-free implementation and service and support agreements to ensure the
solution runs smoothly.

61.4 Additional information about the commercial potential of Laptop Protection from
BT MobileXpress™
Enterprise device security remains one of the largest concerns among IT organisations. In a survey released
by the Ponemon Institute, 81% of organisations reporting losses of laptops in a 12-month period say that they
contain sensitive information. And while access security can protect the enterprise from being breached from
the outside, once sensitive information has been placed on a remote computing device, usernames and
passwords no longer provide sufficient security.

Laptop Protection from BT MobileXpress™ is targeted at multinational enterprises, combining several mobile
security and management capabilities into a single commercial package. While marketed horizontally to BT’s
broad base of enterprises, BT has experienced strong interest from both the financial and public sectors for this
innovative mobile security solution.

With millions of enterprise end-users now conducting some level of remote, flexible or mobile working, and
an ever-increasing amount of corporate sensitive information being stored on mobile devices, the potential
market for a true end-to-end mobile security capability is sizeable and global in nature.

The Ponemon Institute also estimates that data breaches cost UK companies an average of £47 for every
record lost. This means the average cost to a company which suffers a single data breach is £1.4M.
