Nokia has expanded its portfolio of mobile connectivity solutions to include a suite of Internet protocol security (IPSec) virtual private network (VPN)-based products for workers who need secure remote access to their corporate networks from mobile devices and remote locations. The offering consists of four new IP VPN gateway systems, a mobile VPN client, and management software. The new products complement the company’s existing mobility solutions, including a variety of IP security platforms and a SSL VPN connectivity solution. “In launching our new mobility offering, we have created a unique combination of security solutions which further highlight the strength of the proposition of our Series 60 Smartphone portfolio and our new range of Communicator-class mobile phones – the Nokia 9500 and 9300,” says Jarmo Hostio, senior sales manager, Nokia Enterprise Solutions Business Unit, Middle East and Africa. “The new VPN offering capitalises on Nokia’s vision of mobilising the enterprise, enabling businesses of all sizes to securely and cost-effectively connect employees, contractors, business partners and customers over fixed and wireless networks,” he adds. Nokia IP VPN incorporates Nokia’s patent-pending Meta-Hop technology to help ensure seamless user connectivity from the mobile device all the way to the application even if a connection is disrupted. With Meta-Hop technology, mobile end-users are able to connect to IP-based applications securely and stay connected via self-learning and self-healing networks that track multiple connection paths to ensure a connection is maintained. Meta-Hop gives enterprises consistent, secure network availability for mobile end-users, while driving down operational costs for management, maintenance and network expansion. Nokia says the IP VPN solution is suited for the IT managers of growing companies who need to create or extend their connectivity infrastructure to support both mobile and remote office access.
