Breakthrough Service to Supervise Children’s Use of Mobiles Launched by mm Technologies


(PRWEB) October 03, 2011

Leading technology firm, mm Technologies, has today (Thursday) launched a mobile phone protection application system called MobileMinder.

This breakthrough technology allows parents to see who their children are connected to, know where they are at all times, receive alerts when they arrive somewhere safely, be alerted to signs of cyber-bullying, prevent sexting and view internet sites visited by their children. It also has the unique feature called Im Lost which, when activated, sends a map and location of the child to parents or an older brother/sister.

MobileMinder offers parents great peace of mind when it comes to the safety of their children and their use of mobile phones. In my day bullying was only done face to face but now, with most children carrying mobiles, a bully can harass their victim whenever they choose and we want to put a stop to this, stated Don Corbett co-founder and CEO of mm Technologies.

One of Mobileminders unique features is the social circle, which allows parents see who is in their childs real life social network. We alert parents to any unusual behavior from their childs contacts, be that bullying or a new unknown contact who the parent may not know. We can also alert parents to the exchange of inappropriate images on their childs phone and allow them to delete the photos if necessary.

According to the FBI, every 40 seconds a child goes missing in the US and it is unbelieveable to think that, in this day and age, technology has not been developed to help prevent this happening.

Another key benefit for parents of the MobileMinder system includes a gallery feature to prevent sexting (exchange of inappropriate image on a phone) which can in some US states result in a criminal record or worse still a sex offenders record for the child.

Children make mistakes and sometimes use bad judgement. However now this can impact on the rest of their lives way beyond childhood affecting their ability to get into college or get a good job in the future said Don. The gallery feature allows a parent to become aware of this activity and take the necessary action before it gets out of hand, in some cases allowing a parent to delete the image remotely from the phone.

We wanted to develop a complete, easy to use solution for parents that would give them the peace of mind knowing their children were safe on their mobile phones.

The service is now available at $ 7.99 a month as a special launch offer.

Solix Technologies, Inc. Announces Solix Cloud

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2012

Solix Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise data management solutions (EDM), today announced Solix Cloud, a high performance, archiving and application retirement solution for enterprise applications and databases. Solix Cloud is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to securely archive and retire enterprise applications. John Ottman, executive chairman of Solix will lead the companys cloud initiative.

Solix Cloud helps small, medium and large enterprises solve data growth challenges and provides an Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) framework to manage the risk and complexity of storing vital information. By storing all archived data on tier 1 media all the time, and by leveraging flash solid state disk (SSD) technology, Solix Cloud provides faster performance and improved access compared to traditional tiered storage solutions deployed on premise. Solix Cloud is also highly secure. All archived data is encrypted and stored in a read-only, immutable format to meet data privacy and compliance objectives.

Solix Cloud Database Archiving is a data growth solution which improves the performance and reduces the cost of enterprise applications. Data is the life blood of any organization, but too much data can impact enterprise application performance and tax IT resources. Experts agree as much as 80% of the data in enterprise production databases for core applications such as ERP, CRM, and corporate financials is no longer in active use. And enterprise application performance may be impacted as much as 50%. Much of this data must be retained for compliance and business reasons like SOX, decision support and trend analysis.

Solix Cloud Application Retirement decommissions and retires outdated legacy applications. These applications consume valuable IT resources including people, floor space, power, cooling, and maintenance costs. Many of these systems have reached end-of-life status and exist only as a repository to access the data trapped inside the legacy application. Solix Cloud Application Retirement supports data center consolidation and cloud enablement projects by decommissioning legacy applications and still maintaining universal access to the data.

There is a growing need for long term retention of structured data. As data continues to grow at an accelerated pace, IT organizations are not well setup to manage long term retention and access requirements, according to Sheila Childs, Managing Vice President at Gartner. A cloud based archiving and retirement solution can provide both the long term protection to meet access and compliance needs while leveraging the cost and flexibility of a cloud model. I expect to see significant demand for this type of solution.

Database archiving and application retirement are ideal applications for the cloud, said John Ottman, executive chairman, Solix Technologies, Inc. The Solix Cloud is highly secure, costs less and offers higher performance than on premise solutions.

The Solix Cloud is available immediately. Pricing is elastic and starts at $ 5,000 per month and includes a flat monthly fee and a per-gigabyte charge for the data that is actually archived.

About Solix Technologies

Solix Technologies, Inc., is a leading provider of Enterprise Data Management public and private cloud solutions. The solutions help businesses improve application performance, reduce storage costs, and meet compliance and data privacy requirements by achieving Information Lifecycle Management (ILM) goals. The Solix Cloud provides a pay-as-you-go model for database archiving and application retirement. The Solix Enterprise Data Management Suite (Solix EDMS) software enables organizations to implement Database Archiving, Test Data Management (Data Subsetting), Data Masking and Application Retirement across all enterprise data.

Custom Pool Safety Offers the SonarGuard Pool Security System from RJE Technologies at the Morristown New Jersey Armory Home Show Jan. 14th –17th

(PRWEB) January 7, 2005

By applying U.S. Special Forces sonar to swimming pool safety, the “intelligent” pool safety system SonarGuard, is the first and only water safety product integrated into the pool itself.

“Our goal in developing SonarGuard is to allow families and their children to enjoy their backyard swimming pools with complete confidence,” Robert Jechart, president of RJE Technologies, said. “The stakes are too high in regard to a child’s safety to not make every effort to create the best solution possible for the homeowners. Home security has evolved into a sophisticated application of detection technology; pool safety should be treated the same way.”

SonarGuard Safeguards Pools with an Invisible Lifeguard

Jechart and his engineers set out to establish a new standard for swimming pool safety systems. He recognized the value of fencing and pool covers as safety barriers, however he steadfastly believed sonar technology applied below the surface could provide another layer of protection. Since the lives of young children are at stake, he reasoned, why not unleash the capability of today’s technology to assure an enjoyable and safe backyard pool experience.

SonarGuard now offers homeowners, parents, grandparents and guardians an “intelligent” safety system that is integrated with the pool. SonarGuard is the first pool safety technology that creates an invisible, reliable safety net below the surface. If a child breaks the unit’s sonar sound wave pattern, everyone in and around the home is immediately alerted. It is the invisible lifeguard.

Custom Pool Safety Provides Year Round Safety Solutions

Custom Pool Safety has provided pool safety solutions for over 25 years to customers in the Northeast. “We were looking for the last layer of protection to add to our line of Meyco Safety Pool Covers and All-Safe Pool Safety Barriers,” Bill Woods, Chief Operating Officer of C.P.S. said. “SonarGuard is the only alarm that will provide the immediate detection and response needed in an actual emergency, in addition to allowing customers to control access to their pool around the clock.”

Custom Pool Safety is committed to offering the finest safety products designed to ensure a pool environment all year long that complies with the recommendations of the National SAFE KIDS Campaign.

For more information about the SAFE KIDS Campaign Water Safety Program, visit the web at http://www.safekids.org/NSKW.cfm

RJE Technologies was created in 1999, growing from the sister company, RJE International, founded in 1991. RJE International has been successful in supplying advanced sonar technology and equipment to military, commercial aviation and diving industries. Both companies are based in Irvine, California.

Sky Telecom Chooses Squire Technologies and Delivers Carrier Pre-Selected Services Over SS7/VoIP Network

Dorset, UK (PRWEB) September 5, 2007

Squire Technologies Ltd (http://www.squire-technologies.co.uk), provider of carrier-grade SS7 and VoIP signalling equipment, has today announced the successful integration of the SVI_MGC SS7 Media Gateway Controller (http://www.squire-technologies.co.uk/products/svi-mgc.html) into the network of the leading Maltese ISP, Sky Telecom Ltd. Providing RADIUS authentication, billing and routing, and local number portability, this dual redundant system has enabled Sky Telecom to progress its expanding VoIP services to the next level in cost-efficiency and reliability, and deliver the associated benefits to its customers.

“The SVI_MGC provided Sky Telecom with functionality that we needed at an excellent cost and we are very happy with our choice to develop our new services on a network including it,” says Philip Cassar, Managing Director, Sky Telecom Ltd.

Interconnected to four of the five carriers operating in Malta (Vodafone, Maltacom, Go Mobile and Melita), this Media Gateway Controller provides Sky Telecom with all the advantages of routing its traffic between SS7 and VoIP. This well proven product was chosen by the ISP for its pedigree of SS7 engineering and worldwide deployments. Offering the best specifications at the best price on the market, the SVI_MGC has been quickly deployed into the network.

“In deploying the SVI_MGC into its network Sky Telecom has purchased a reliable and adaptable product solution which provides them with signalling and routing control that easily enables them to develop their own services,” says Andrew Cooper, Squire Technologies’ Managing Director. “It is Squire’s philosophy to deploy products which integrate easily into the client environment instead of making them integrate into ours.”

Following the introduction of compulsory Carrier Pre-Selection for large network operators in Malta, Sky Telecom developed a proprietary RADIUS server. Consequently the ISP required an SS7/VoIP Media Gateway Controller offering interoperability with Cisco gateways to control their incumbent network infrastructure. The additional RADIUS functionality that the SVI_MGC SS7 Media Gateway Controller provides allows Sky Telecom to rapidly develop new services on its in-house RADIUS server, bringing innovative solutions to market without 3rd party suppliers, reducing lead times to delivery and development costs.

By deploying the MGC Sky Telecom has been able to implement its system quickly and cost-effectively, and engage with the newly deregularised and competitive Maltese Telecommunications market. This has enabled its customers to realise the benefits of easy, reliable and efficient communications services, in particular reducing international call tariffs. Squire Technologies is proud to have provided Sky Telecom with a solution enabling it to comply with the CPS legislation and deliver the required functionality quickly.

About Squire Technologies

Launching in 2001 as an SS7 consultancy that built custom products from best of breed hardware, Squire Technologies quickly began to use this expertise to build and deliver carrier grade SS7-based signaling products. This shift in focus evolved, and today Squire Technologies provides a wide range of SS7 and VoIP network equipment – protocol converters, signalling gateways, media gateways, media gateway controllers, and softswitches.
