Carma Breaks New Ground With Trellia Policy Enforcement For 3G Deployment

MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trellia Networks (, a provider of mobile policy management software, today announced that Carma Developers, one of North America's leading land developers, deployed Trellia's solution to enable seamless and secure 3G access for its mobile executives. The firm decided to leverage Bell Mobility's 3G EVDO network to increase customer responsiveness and workforce productivity.

Carma Developers purpose and passion is developing communities that people love to live, play and work in. It is known industry wide as a land developer that works with passion and integrity, creating communities where people have the opportunity to interact. Carma has been in business for 50 years and has experienced unprecedented growth since the late 1990s.

"As Carma continues to expand rapidly, we need to deploy technologies that support and accelerate our growth" says Carma's IT Operations Manager, Randy Black. "Much of the work we do is done in the field, so mobility strategies are at the heart of our IT operation. Our recent deployment of Bell 3G data cards for our mobile executives and site managers required a solution to ensure a simple and secure mobile experience".

Trellia's Mobility Platform was deployed to facilitate the 3G deployment. Its ability to automate switching between the corporate LAN and 3G network delivered a "zero-click" end user experience. Removing the need for users to manage connectivity shortened pre-deployment training requirements, resulting in a faster roll-out. Carma also leveraged Trellia's "preferred network" capability to enforce the use of Bell's 3G network when outside the office. By locking down use of other public networks, the solution reduced potential network related security risks.

"Carma's decision to use Trellia to facilitate and secure its 3G deployment further validates the need for simultaneously improving the mobile experience while enforcing IT policies" said Giovanni Forte, President and CEO of Trellia. "Our solution addresses how to simplify and secure the connectivity process which is central to any successful enterprise mobility initiative".

"Within a few weeks we have already seen how the combined Trellia and Bell Mobility solution is increasing our mobile executive's efficiency" said Randy Black. "And the solution is so seamless that our end users don't even know how well it works, because they don't notice it's there at all."
