Storage and security server appliance products and services firm, Network Engines, Inc. has selected appliance manufacturing firm, Newbury Networks Inc., as its partner to build what it says, is the industry’s first infrastructure-agnostic wireless location appliance.
By providing a dedicated hardware platform optimized to run Newbury’s location technology, it is anticipated that the Newbury Location Appliance built by Network Engines, will equip enterprise organizations with a plug-and-play solution for tracking thousands of devices over wireless LANs.
Michael Maggio, President and CEO of Newbury Networks explained, ”Network Engines has established itself as the leading vendor of appliance solutions for software systems’ companies eager to expand into new markets using dedicated hardware platforms. Partnering with Network Engines to design and build wireless network appliances tuned to run our solutions enables us and our strategic partners to develop a wealth of next-generation mobile enterprise applications including asset tracking, network provisioning, voice communications, and security.”
Network Engines President and CEO Greg Shortell reportedly commented that Newbury Networks is in the vanguard of software companies that are capitalizing on appliance advantages to deliver their applications as turn-key solutions. Mr. Shortell added, ”By using our revision-controlled appliance reference platforms, Newbury Networks reduces the cost to deliver its patented location technology to a broader set of the marketplace. By ensuring that every model of appliance is identical, Network Engines enables Newbury and its partners to roll out location tracking applications to hundreds of locations within large organizations coupled with centralized management and network-based software update capabilities.”
Mr. Maggio continued, ”We are fortunate to have a strong manufacturing partner conveniently near us in New England. The technical flexibility of Network Engines combined with the company’s high level of support enables us to deliver all of the benefits of dedicated hardware platforms without having to become hardware manufacturers ourselves. By partnering with Network Engines, we avoid the costs of developing our own hardware design, manufacturing and logistics expertise – and the tight control we gain over our hardware platforms enables us to deliver assured application experiences with lower support costs over the entire life of each appliance. That’s a win for us, our partners, and our mutual enterprise customers.”
