Red Bend Announces Support for Intels Moorestown

Red Bend Software, which specialises in Mobile Software Management, has announced support for Intels next-generation handheld and Smartphone platform, codenamed Moorestown.
Red Bends vDirect Mobile device management (DM) software is an independent DM client that is interoperable with any DM server supporting standards from the Open Mobile Alliance (OMA). It enables faster time to market for mobile devices that must comply with standards-based device management. This agreement builds upon the successful implementation of vDirect Mobile with Intel-embedded WiMAX chipsets announced in February 2009.
Deployed in tens of millions of mobile devices worldwide, vDirect Mobile is used to provision new subscribers, configure applications and network settings, manage software and deploy firmware-over-the-air (FOTA) updates. It is the first DM client to support the WiMAX Management Object used by the WiMAX Forum.
The Intel Atom processor is accelerating innovation in the mobile space as devices become increasingly faster and smarter, says Pankaj Kedia, Director of Global Ecosystem Programs in Intel Corporations Ultra Mobility Group. Red Bends device management solution will make it easier and more cost-effective to manage Intel Atom-based handhelds and Smartphones.
Intel has previously licensed vDirect Mobile for use in its WiMAX/WiFi Link 5350, which was embedded in new laptops based on Intel Centrino 2 Processor Technology.
