Apollo Mobility Server Lite improves the mobile experience by offering a reliable and secure connection to the corporate network in a fast, cost effective and efficient manner.
Connects using GPRS, 3G, Wifi, WiMax
Full Access on the Move
More and more mobile users of wireless devices are seeking connections to e-mail, internet and their corporate data, thus enabling them to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently.
Apollo Mobility Lite provides the wireless connection between the enterprise and the mobile user, allowing the user to access and respond to all their business applications from anywhere.
The Apollo Mobility Lite is a remote / wireless platform for small and medium sized enterprises, allowing mobile users access to information they need, when and where they need it - e.g. customers site, in the car, or at home.
Apollo Mobility Lite transparently integrates the LAN environment with wireless WAN environments, enabling seamless roaming across GPRS, 3G, Wireless LANs and GSM networks. It removes the uncertainty of using a wireless network to transfer vital information with no user intervention.
Offering mobile users the added benefits of high compression levels, fast packet loss recovery and high security, the Apollo Mobility Lite makes mobile data a reality for business-critical data applications.
The Apollo Mobility Server Lite Solution is a server / client mobile data solution. The solution has been derived from Brand's carrier class product the Apollo 'Anywhere' Server to offer a more affordable but feature rich solution to the SME / Medium enterprise.
One of the most important elements of mobile data is the reliability of the solution. By using a unique recovery protocol, the software can automatically recover from lost or broken calls (which can happen over any communications bearer) and re-establishes the session transparently to the user. This ensures no re-logging or re-setting the system is required, the link just seamlessly re-established the session and continues exactly where it left off. Also when the connection is lost, the solution maintains the same IP address, so no new connection is needed and a seamless connection is withheld.
Moving between different wireless access environments can be a challenge to any mobile user. Connections between the client and the server can fail. The Brand software will try and re-establish the connection via the same bearer and if not successful, it will try and reach it through alternate bearers, for instance a user who is on Wifi and coverage is lost could automatically have their session redirected over a GPRS connection whilst maintaining the integrity of the session and no user intervention needed.
Performance & Cost Savings
Apollo's unique session management technology ensures that only real user data is actually transmitted and all other network traffic is suppressed locally. Brand also compresses the data before applying the VPN, so offering significant savings in time and costs due to faster throughput.
The solution adds significant protection to the enterprise network by user authentication, AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), and encryption security which complies with all the standards. Any mobile user accessing the enterprise from a Wireless LAN, the internet or external networks would have to authenticate via the Apollo Mobility Server. Also with the built-in firewall, added protection is gained as only authenticated VPN data is allowed through the DMZ allowing only permitted clients access to the network.
The Apollo Mobility Server seamlessly and effortlessly integrates into any enterprise network with easy install, management and upgrades. User information can be displayed via a Customer Care application. This method displays a huge range of information related to traffic, users and can also give GIS information, which is superb tool for lone workers.
