Novatel Wireless and NetMotion Wireless Keep Nevada Highway Patrol Moving Full Speed With Secure IoT Solution

EUGENE, Ore., Jan. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FW, a subsidiary of Novatel Wireless, Inc. (NASDAQ:MIFI) today announced that the Nevada Highway Patrol recently selected an innovative IoT bundled solution from FW that brings an added layer of security to mission-critical applications without compromising connection performance.

The bundle combines FW's monthly service offerings along with the newly launched Skyus X in-vehicle router for wireless connectivity. The solution is outfitted with NetMotion Wireless' Mobility application and delivers secure and reliable wireless communication to law enforcement and enterprise fleets.

"NetMotion Wireless Mobility is the only mobile security management solution built to simultaneously enhance application performance, user experience and the management of mobile and wireless deployments," said Erik Helms, VP Strategic Partners at NetMotion Wireless.

"Our relationship with NetMotion helps solve a growing issue for law enforcement and enterprises today, which is the delivery of a high-performing, reliable connection that isn't interrupted due to the addition of sophisticated security layers."
