Sunnyvale, CA, February 10, 2009 - InnoPath Software, the leader in Mobile Device Management (MDM), today announced the availability of its OMA-DM client and Device Update Agent (DUA) as a pre-integrated and validated solution on the Mentor Graphics Nucleus® Real Time Operating System. The combined solution, available globally, allows device makers to meet increasing demands by operators for over-the-air manageability in new handsets. MDM will allow device makers to get handsets to market faster while operators will benefit from lower costs and enhanced subscriber satisfaction.
“Mentor Graphics selected InnoPath based on their demonstrated engineering track record, financial stability, in-region operational capabilities and intimate client experience involving some of the largest handset vendors in the world,” said Glenn Perry, general manager, Embedded Systems Division, Mentor Graphics. “Industry-leading device management on the Nucleus platform delivers significant value to mobile handset manufacturers, offering proven performance, scalability, flexibility, error recovery, and demonstrated interoperability.”
“Mentor’s Nucleus Real Time OS is the most widely deployed commercial embedded OS in the mobile handset market today due to its small footprint, power-efficiency, real time performance and flexibility, significantly streamlining handset development time and cost,” said David Ginsburg, Vice President of Marketing at InnoPath. “With the deployment of MDM on Nucleus, wireless operators get lower costs, more customer satisfaction and better brand loyalty.”
InnoPath will be demonstrating its complete MDM solution as well as its Nucleus port at stand 1F39 in Hall 1 at the Mobile World Congress, held next week in Barcelona.
