GT Hill Running Educational Wireless Webinars

Friday, July 25th, 2014

GT Hill, the Director of Technical Marketing at Ruckus Wireless is running a series of free educational webinars about Wi-Fi that will go through the real facts and physics necessary to achieve better Wi-Fi.

If you haven’t heard of GT before it’s worth checking him out on YouTube, he is an extremely knowledgeable guy when it comes to Wi-Fi.

These educational webinars are designed to teach you, not sell you (too much), on the keys to creating a better Wi-Fi experience for your users. He’ll answer questions like:

• Why does signal really matter?
• How can you not only deal with Wi-Fi interference but fix it?
• Should you wait for 802.11ac Wave 2?
• Will MU-MIMO really give me 4x better performance?

NetMotion Wireless User Named as Finalist for EHI Award

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014

Net-Ctrl is proud to announce that one of our NetMotion Wireless customers, Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust, is a finalist for an EHI Award for ‘Excellence in Mobile Healthcare’.

This award recognises the role that technology plays in facilitating mobile working for healthcare staff.

Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust first contacted Net-Ctrl in November 2013 in need of a new remote working solution. The Trust had heard about the work Net-Ctrl and NetMotion Wireless had completed in healthcare through other organisations in their area that had witnessed the benefits of Mobility XE first-hand.

NetMotion Mobility® is a mobile VPN solution that gives enterprises a central control point for managing mission-critical mobile deployments. It keeps mobile workers using iPads, iPhones, Windows laptops, tablets and Android devices connected and productive.

Mobility shields them from connectivity issues as they move in and out of wireless coverage areas and roam between networks. It provides the ability to set policies to manage devices, applications access and bandwidth, and gives organisations the visibility they need to maximise their mobile investments.

The winners will be announced at a special awards evening on 09th October, we wish Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust the best of luck.

If you would like more information on NetMotion Wireless and their Mobility XE solution, please email sales@net-ctrl.com or call us on 01473 281 211.
