Overview
Bottom rule

IBM Lotus Mobile Connect (LMC) V6.1.3 is a distributed, scalable, multipurpose communications platform designed to optimize bandwidth, help reduce costs, and help ensure security. It also creates a mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN) that encrypts data over vulnerable wireless local area network (LAN) and wireless wide area network (WAN) connections.

LMC integrates an exhaustive list of standard Internet Protocol (IP) and non-IP wireless bearer networks, server hardware, device operating systems, and mobile security protocols. By creating a mobile VPN, Lotus Mobile Connect V6.1.3 goes well beyond the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) level of security offered by other (mobile and non-mobile) products.

LMC can be used in conjunction with many applications both Web based (via client-less VPN) and client based (via traditional VPN client) that includes IBM Lotus iNotes™, IBM Lotus Notes® Traveler, IBM Lotus Notes, IBM Lotus Sametime®, IBM Lotus Connections, IBM WebSphere® Portal, and IBM Lotus Quickr™. The benefit with each of these solutions is to help encrypt business applications and extend them to mobile users using a desktop, laptop, or handheld mobile device outside of the traditional office. It is a critical component in many industry-specific solutions from IBM.

New features

  • LMC expands its breadth of desktop client platforms to include the Macintosh desktop, supporting OS X 10.4 and 10.5, running on 32-bit and 64-bit Intel, or 32-bit and 64-bit Power PC, as well as new support for Red Hat 5.
  • LMC's Mobility Client for Symbian devices provide an integrated configuration, login, and logging experience for select Nokia E-Series devices. Supported devices include Nokia E-50, E-51, E-60, E-61, E-61i, E-62, E-66, E-70, E-71, E-75, and E-90.
  • Simplified Mobility Client APIs reduce the application integration effort making it easier to establish integrated configuration, starting, and stopping of basic IP-LAN connections.
  • HTTP Access capabilities include session termination upon application logout that allows end users to destroy session security tokens upon application logout. Also, two new LTPA configuration properties improve the ease of application single sign on configuration, and the form login panels look and feel consistent with other Lotus applications, including dynamic resolution support for improved display on mobile devices.
  • LMC Connection Manager and Gatekeeper now support AIX® V6.1, Windows® 2008, and Red Hat 5, and integrates with DB2® V9.5.

The program's specifications and specified operating environment information may be found in documentation accompanying the program, if available, such as a README file, or other information published by IBM, such as an announcement letter. Documentation and other program content may be supplied only in the English language.

Limitations

Mobility Client is software that runs locally on user devices and offers a full-function interface to communicate with Connection Manager. Once Mobility Client authenticates to Connection Manager, a VPN is established and the device securely joins the enterprise intranet. Connection Manager supports standard IP routing (includes routing over non-IP wireless bearer networks) to help ensure unbroken, end-to-end TCP sessions between mobile devices and application servers. Mobility Client also includes a toolkit and application program interfaces to create network-aware applications. Limitations may apply to some devices.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
