, a global provider of Internet access management and networking solutions to the hospitality market, announced that it plans to launch an innovative mobile application development initiative for BlackBerry and Apple iPhone smartphones to its MaMA centralized converged network management solution. Superclick Networks' MaMA mobile app will enable client IT directors and converged network administrators to easily monitor, manage, and configure their Superclick network and SIMS-supported, IP-converged networks.
Superclick Networks' Monitoring & Management Application (MaMA) is a "cloud-based" centralized converged network management solution that provides real-time reporting, monitoring, analytics, configuration, and management of IP network infrastructure and edge devices environments.
These capabilities of MaMA are combined with the advantages of the BlackBerry and iPhone mobile platforms, delivering real-time data communication of IP network status and alarm notification via push technology with secure single sign-on, wireless mobile access to the IP network management of servers, switches, access points and IP-edge devices.
"Superclick Networks MaMA 'mobile app' platform will make it possible for our clients to be fully aware of the ongoing status, health, and user traffic flowing through their IP networks, wherever they are, enabling greater productivity, efficiency, and oversight of the network on a 24/7 basis," says Sandro Natale, president and CEO of Superclick Networks. "It also presents new opportunities for Superclick to expand its value-added services and management applications to new vertical markets that will benefit our global enterprise customers and strategic alliance partners."
The new MaMA "mobile app" extensions will fully enable the remote, mobile, and proactive monitoring and configuration by Superclick Networks' clients of their entire network portfolio right down to the status of multi-vendor IP edge devices.
"Our customer-base of IT directors, network managers and their corporate management are looking for ways to better utilize their investments in mobile smartphone technologies," said Michael Cohen, VP Sales and Marketing at Superclick Networks. "The extension of the MaMA solution to the mobile smartphone platform is an important and logical addition to their daily toolset."
Superclick Networks will be previewing to clients the first MaMA mobile app versions in early first quarter of calendar year 2011, which will initially support read/only access to an IP converged networks server list, online users, and notification alarms.
Upcoming versions will deliver mobile read/write access to: network support tickets, IP bandwidth speed dials, wireless and wired conferencing wizard, network load monitoring, remote reboot of applicable IP edge devices and hardware, the power down of POE ports, and full IP device listing.
The initial set of MaMA "mobile app" extensions and services for the BlackBerry and iPhone smartphone platforms are expected to be available in closed beta in the first quarter of calendar year 2011. The additional versions are scheduled for release over the remainder of 2011.
