Socket Communications release Wi-fi software for Pocket PC
Socket Communications, Inc. has announced the Socket Wi-Fi Companion. Designed for Windows Mobile Pocket PC devices with integrated 802.11 WLAN, the Socket Wi-Fi Companion is an intuitive, graphical software application that improves the user's experience detecting hotspots, setting up and monitoring a connection, performing basic site management functions, viewing access points and determining the strength of a wireless connection.

Socket's Wi-Fi Companion software also provides tools like Integrated Profile Configuration Capability that enables users to quickly identify available networks and configure these for connection. Socket's Wi-Fi Companion determines the presence and level of wireless coverage, whether security is enabled and the type of security used. With ping and trace route diagnostic tools, troubleshooting to determine where network issues exist becomes effortless. In addition, connection persistence capability continuously manages and maintains the user's connection. The Wi-Fi Companion also automatically manages the WLAN power save setting to maximize the Pocket PC's battery life.

Socket's Wi-Fi Companion is compatible with HP, ASUS and Dell Pocket PCs with built-in WLAN capability. It also efficiently integrates with all of the WLAN security protocols supported by Windows Mobile (WPA, WPA-PSK, 802.1x, 40/128-bit WEP, Open).
