localityNetMotion Wireless Delivers what it claims to be industry's first free cellular network performance management software tool – Locality. Like other tools that do cellular network performance management, Locality also does the same but with focus on a particular organization.

Today there are a lot of organizations that use Cellular data networks as an integral part of their network infrastructure for accessibility of mission critical applications on mobile phones. But very few solutions are available that give them the visibility to manage the mobile deployment to optimize mobile data deployments and maximize productivity and profits.

Detailed business intelligence reports based on an organization's unique deployment is what you get with Locality, to assist you in taking quick fact based decisions. Locality provided detailed device, network and application reports for organizations to proactively identify coverage issues, troubleshoot helpdesk tickets, make performance-based buying decisions, effectively track and manage all deployed devices, and more.

Organizations can reduce wireless deployment expenditures by identifying under-utilized or unused mobile assets. The solution proves beneficial for Field staff making them more efficient with better access to resources, IT Staff by slashing down the time spent on trouble shooting of issues and Customers who receive better services.

The companies that are already using the solution like Amica Insurance, have observed that now they can reach to the root of the problem quickly and minimize employee's downtime to keep their customers happy. Using Locality the Mesa, Arizona Police Department have found a way to troubleshoot dropped connections and cellular network coverage for their officers in the field.

If you meet the following system requirements you can obtain maximum benefits from Locality that is available for free.

Server : Windows Server® 2008 R2 (Enterprise or Standard Edition) with SP1

Client  : PC running one of the following operating systems: Windows 7 32/64-bit   (Enterprise, Professional, or Ultimate Edition) Windows XP with SP3 (Professional) with .NET 2.0 or later

GPS    : A GPS receiver is required for correlated location data, however, without one, network performance data is still collected and available within Locality business intelligence reports. Locality supports GPS receivers that send location information using either TAIP or NMEA communications protocols.

Locality currently supports network adapters from AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, as well as selected laptops with embedded adapters operating on Canadian carrier networks. And this portfolio is expanding.
