InnoPath’s MDM Client Deployed by Pantech across Multiple Tier-1 Operators

Earlier this week, InnoPath published a PR that speaks to its continued momentum in the client space. In the past few months, Pantech has deployed InnoPath’s OMA-DM client on handsets delivered to AT&T, KDDI and KTF. Previous InnoPath/Pantech customers also included Verizon Wireless. InnoPath’s momentum at Pantech across both GSM and CDMA operators is evidence of the flexibility of its client architecture as well as its in-country support capabilities. The availability of handsets with OMA-DM clients is required to jumpstart operator deployments, thereby setting the stage for MDM-delivered customer care.


To pull from the PR… Greater client availability facilitates Mobile Device Management (MDM) deployment, and MDM is one of the few technologies operators have at their disposal to drive costs out of their networks while maintaining customer satisfaction. This capability is even more top-of-mind in the current economic environment.


InnoPath - PantechLeading Pantech handsets featuring InnoPath device management include AT&T’s easy to use C520 ‘Breeze’, the C610, a compact flip-phone and the C740 ‘Matrix’, a dual slider qwerty texting phone. In Korea, KTF’s unique U300K ‘Neon-Sign’ and in Japan KDDI’s compact slider W61PT and the simple, stylish W62PT also ship with InnoPath device management clients on board.


Pantech has a strong history of mobile phone innovation, having introduced the world’s first CDMA mobile phone in 1994. The company is now a leader in both CDMA and GSM devices, spanning both featurephones as well as Windows Mobile smartphones. The company supplies mobile phones to operators in North America, Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
