Tropos Networks and Netmotion Wireless Team to Provide Seamless Roaming Between Metro-Scale Wi-Fi and Wide Area Networks

Seattle, WA - NetMotion Wireless Inc., the market leader in mobility management solutions, and Tropos Networks, the proven leader in delivering truly ubiquitous, metro-scale, Wi-Fi mesh network systems, today announced a joint marketing agreement to provide secure, seamless and high-performance roaming solutions among metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh networks and wide area networks. The companies are leaders in their respective fields and are particularly dominant in the public safety sector. Their first joint installation is in the City of Milpitas, CA, where the combination of Tropos MetroMesh™ and NetMotion Mobility XE™ enables seamless roaming over the town's entire 10-square-mile network for police officers, firefighters and other city workers.

"It is essential that our officers be able to move securely and seamlessly between our metro-scale Wi-Fi mesh network and our other wide area networks," said Bill Marion, Information Services Director for the City of Milpitas. "We found the combined Tropos Networks — NetMotion Wireless solution to be affordable, easy to deploy and extremely reliable."

Using Mobility XE software from NetMotion Wireless and Tropos MetroMesh routers, the City of Milpitas police officers and firefighters in the field have secure and seamless roaming access to critical applications such as the CalPhoto Database, DMV records and photos, hazardous materials databases, video surveillance and mobile dispatch applications, to name a few. Other municipal workers, such as building inspectors, traffic engineers and code enforcement officers, also have seamless roaming access to city and utility applications. Because of the joint solution, the city is able to use existing applications over wireless networks without expensive and time-consuming customization or modification.

"Like NetMotion Wireless, Tropos Networks has experienced rapid growth and market acceptance of its innovative solution," said Andy Willett, senior vice president of sales for NetMotion Wireless. "This partnership will bring the power of our combined solutions to many new customers."

"The integration of the Tropos and NetMotion Wireless solution combines best-of-breed, market-leading technologies to provide the kind of secure, reliable and seamless access to information that the public safety sector and others demand," said Bert Williams, vice president of marketing at Tropos Networks. "The City of Milpitas is a testimony to our joint solution. We look forward to bringing its benefits to other markets and cities."

In addition to Milpitas, the two companies will jointly promote and sell Tropos MetroMesh products and NetMotion Mobility XE software to other government and public safety agencies, municipalities and service providers.
