Project: Wireless system for enforcement officers
Agency: Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife
Partner: NetMotion Wireless Inc., Seattle
Create a wireless system to give enforcement officers in the field, hundreds of miles away from headquarters, access to all the department's databases and other computer resources.
Maintaining a connection out in the field is next to impossible as officers move in and out of coverage from various wireless service providers.
NetMotion's software NetMotion Mobility XE enables wireless users to roam from connection to connection without applications crashing. The software also lets officers work in applications when a connection is lost, automatically reconnecting when a carrier is available.
Enforcement officers have access to the information they need, and they don't waste time driving to a department office to do tasks that now can be done wirelessly.
