CSC has announced a global strategic alliance with Proximetry, a leading provider of network and performance management solutions for wireless networks. The combination of CSC's deep industry expertise and industry leading network services capabilities, coupled with Proximetry's innovative AirSync software, creates a new intelligent wireless services platform enabling a series of new business solutions and services for the transportation and energy industries.
As aircraft, trains and buses become mobile end-points on transportation networks and modern energy distribution requires bi-directional communication across service footprints, CSC's new AirSync -enabled intelligent wireless network solutions provide the bridge between mobile end-points and the enterprise. "Traditionally, human intervention has been required for data collection, asset interrogation and content loading," said Mary Jo Morris, president of CSC's Technology and Consumer Group. "With this new service, data and content can be distributed and collected in real time - streamlining existing processes, eliminating manual tasks, and enabling the creation of new revenue generating services for transportation and energy businesses."
The collaboration between CSC and Proximetry results in a unique combination of service and software not yet seen in the market. Unlike existing enterprise wireless network solutions, CSC's intelligent wireless network service, enabled by AirSync, extends the enterprise wireless capability beyond its physical real estate, providing secure and intelligent provisioning of real-time mission critical data, anytime, anywhere and across multiple wireless protocols and networks as needed.
CSC and Proximetry have collaborated to offer the transportation industry a subscription-based model so customers will benefit from a cost-efficient solution, reducing capital costs while extending the reach of mission-critical data. CSC's exclusive adaptation of Proximetry's software truly enables the full potential of next generation e-enabled transportation systems.
In addition to transportation solutions, CSC and Proximetry anticipate integrated solutions enabling breakthrough applications for public utilities moving to Smart Grid models for their energy networks and requiring efficient, reliable and secure movement of information.
"CSC serves many of the world's leading transportation and energy companies, and we look forward to enabling a new era of managed wireless services and solutions through this alliance." said Tracy Trent, CEO of Proximetry.
