|Planned availability date|
November 26, 2012: Electronic availability
December 4, 2012: Media availability
IBM Mobile Connect V6.1.5 is application agnostic and can be used in conjunction with many applications that are both web based (via clientless Virtual Private Network (VPN) and client based (via traditional VPN client) including IBM Lotus iNotes , IBM Lotus Notes Traveler, IBM Lotus Notes , IBM Sametime , IBM Connections, IBM WebSphere® Portal, and IBM Lotus Quickr® . You can encrypt business applications and extend them to mobile users using a desktop, laptop, or handheld mobile device outside of the traditional office while providing an additional layer of access security to enterprise applications whose infrastructure is located in corporate intranets.
IBM Mobile Connect helps protect sensitive information transmitted over wireless networks and allows mobile users to maintain session persistence through seamless network roaming. It also helps reduce mobile transmission costs and lowers connection fees through data optimization.
With IBM Mobile Connect, you can use an extensive 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, IBM Mobile Connect goes well beyond the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) level of security offered by other (mobile and nonmobile) products.
IBM Mobile Connect is capable as of December 4, 2012, when used in accordance with IBM's associated documentation, of satisfying the applicable requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, provided that any assistive technology used with the product properly interoperates with it. A US Section 508 Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT), containing details on the products accessibility compliance, can be requested on the following website

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 Transmission Control Protocol (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.

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User accessing the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, via a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User an may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.
Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

Statement of good security practices
IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered destroyed or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
To be eligible for On/Off CoD pricing, customers must be enabled for temporary capacity on the corresponding hardware, and the required contract - Z125-6907, Amendment for iSeries® and pSeries® Temporary Capacity On Demand - Software - must be signed prior to use.
|IBM Electronic Services|
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.
