Red-M shows first complete wirelessware solution integrating 802.11 and Bluetooth networks

Genos™ wirelessware brings secure connectivity and management to multi-technology voice and data wireless networks

Wexham Springs, UK (December 5, 2001) – Red-M™, a pioneer in advanced wireless networking solutions, today announces that it is showcasing Genos wirelessware technology at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from December 10. The demonstration heralds the future of wireless networking by simultaneously integrating 802.11 wireless LAN and Bluetooth, creating a seamless user experience in a highly secure environment.

Red-M will demonstrate a mixed, secure, 802.11 WLAN and Bluetooth network controlled by Genos, and accessed by a number of data and voice-enabled edge devices such as: laptops, cordless telephony profile (CTP) mobile phones and personal digital assistants (PDA’s).

Genos wirelessware is the first wireless network architecture to offer a level of security that fully meets the needs of commercial networks, while bringing a host of other features to a wireless network, including the ability to push information to users’ end point devices in a format best suited to that device. Genos features secure user authentication, access control and session management to enable complete control over a corporate network.

Genos boasts a high degree of flexibility and scalability allowing it to encompass future developments in wireless technology such as 802.11a or 802.11g. This enables companies to future-proof and protect their infrastructure investment and move forward with wireless network deployment without committing to proprietary solutions.

Simon Gawne, vice-president and co-founder of Red-M comments: “Genos is the next step in the wireless journey, enabling a multi-technology environment which allows users to benefit from the inherent advantages of both 802.11 and Bluetooth. Genos also provides the security that is essential to drive widespread adoption of wireless networks.

Gawne continues, “Genos wirelessware stands at the centre of converging communications, acting as a linchpin to complementary technologies and devices. Genos opens up a world where phones, PDA’s, camcorders, 3G, Bluetooth, LANS and WLANS can all interconnect in an easily managed and very secure environment. The end result is a cost effective and seamless experience for users, which opens up vastly improved mobility at all levels of communications.”
