said it would release version 4.1 of its TotalRoam mobile data solution in October. According to Mark Ferguson, marketing director, the upgrade will introduce an SNMP function that will enable system administrators to remotely configure changes to the system. Also, a radius authentication capability will be introduced. “These upgrades will give users greater flexibility,” Ferguson said.

Padcom also plans to upgrade its TR6100 mobile router “later this year,” Ferguson said. Additional Ethernet ports will be added, and the router will become field upgradeable. “Users will be able to upgrade simply by popping in PC cards, much like how you do on a computer,” Ferguson said.
