Garderos is a 2003 and 2004 Tornado100 Winner

Munich, 08 March 2005 -- Garderos’ WLAN operational support system has been chosen by Germany’s largest utility company E.ON Ruhrgas AG, for deployment at its corporate headquarters. Now, secure wireless service is available for company visitors to access the Internet and company employees to access the Intranet. The addition of E.ON Ruhrgas to its customer base, underlines Garderos’ leadership in the market for enterprise WLAN software.

Garderos Software Innovations delivered its WLAN operational support system (OSS) for the conferencing and meeting areas of E.ON Ruhrgas’ corporate headquarters. E.ON Ruhrgas, German market leader for natural gas products and services, decided to implement Guest Internet Access, so that consultants, visitors and employees can be “always-on”. In this way, E.ON Ruhrgas increases productivity and boosts its corporate image. Siemens Communications was chosen as the prime contractor for the overall implementation.

For Karl-Heinz Schrief, Head of the Network Service Section at E.ON Ruhrgas, the most important selection criteria were security and ease of use. „Our main emphasis is on making wireless access for visitors secure and intuitive to use. The Garderos OSS allows our visitors with notebooks and PDAs to connect back to their own networks, using VPN technology. Furthermore, it is managed centrally, allowing us to save time and costs.”

Frank Wientjens, Siemens Account Manager for E.ON Ruhrgas, states: „The partnership with Garderos enables us to offer E.ON Ruhrgas a complete WLAN solution, which meets the requirements of a modern corporate communications infrastructure.”

Garderos CEO Wim Vink sees the E.ON Ruhrgas project as another milestone in the development of the fast-growing enterprise WLAN OSS market. “Within a few years, most companies will offer high speed wireless service in the meeting and conferencing areas. The E.ON Ruhrgas project confirms our technology and market leadership position,” says Vink.
