WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Red Bend Software today announced that it will unveil new product capabilities for Mobile Software Management (MSM) at GSMA's 2010 Mobile World Congress.

WHO:

Red Bend's MSM solutions have been deployed in more than 620 million mobile devices and are used by eight of the top 10 handset manufacturers, tier-one operators such as NTT DOCOMO and China Mobile, and dozens of other leading companies in mobile, M2M and WiMAX. More than 450 mobile devices are Red Bend-Enabled(TM), including smartphones, feature phones, netbooks, mobile Internet devices (MIDs), machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, USB modems, PC cards and WiMAX modems.

WHAT:

Red Bend will conduct industry-first live demonstrations of its expanded MSM products -- vRapid Mobile® for Software Management and Firmware Updating and vDirect Mobile(TM) for Device Management -- on a variety of cutting-edge mobile devices and platforms, including ACCESS Linux Platform(TM), Android, OPhone from Borqs and Qualcomm's Brew® Mobile Platform.

  1. Independent Management of Smartphones - Service providers can get real-time software inventory of user-downloaded, side-loaded and managed applications to understand consumer preferences, and then deploy targeted services like social networking to exiting smartphones without waiting for handset replacement cycles.
  2. Branding Unlocked Handsets - Service providers can deploy branded application packs to unlocked vanilla handsets, bringing a consistent user experience to all consumers on the network while generating revenue from higher-value applications.
  3. On-Demand Subscription to Operator Services - With partner IBM, Red Bend will show how operators can increase ARPU from existing subscribers by enabling consumers to self-enroll in the latest mobile services, without needing to change handsets.
  4. Extending the Value of M2M Devices - With customer Motorola, Red Bend will add a camera application over the air to Motorola's G24 M2M module to enhance the functionality of M2M devices throughout their long lifespan.
  5. Ultimate Consumer Personalization - Device manufacturers and operators can enable consumers to completely personalize their mobile services, features and applications from a single software management application, regardless of the firmware that came with their handset.
  6. Improving the Mobile User Experience - Red Bend will demonstrate how updating firmware over the air (FOTA), managing software components over the air (SCOTA) and standards-based device management (OMA DM) can continuously delight consumers with new features and applications. Red Bend-Enabled devices will include an Android-based OPhone from Dell, the first Else(TM) mobile device using the ACCESS Linux Platform, a handset running Qualcomm's Brew Mobile Platform as well as mobile phones based on LiMo, Symbian and Windows.
