Netopia NBBS Remote Management Software

Pfizer Selects Netopia NBBS Remote Management Software to Support Broadband-Enabled Workforce
Netopia, Inc. (OTCBB:NTPA), a market leader in broadband equipment and service delivery software, today announced that Pfizer, Inc. (NYSE:PFE), has selected Netopia's Broadband Server (NBBS) platform to centrally manage, support, and administer Pfizer's broadband equipment deployed to over 10,000 remote sales representatives in Pfizer's North America field organization.
Pfizer's use of Netopia's TR-069 NBBS management system will enable Pfizer IT staff and help desk agents to remotely manage Pfizer's deployment of cable/DSL Wi-Fi gateways delivering secure broadband access to Pfizer's network and the Internet. With Netopia's NBBS platform, Pfizer will set up and configure its customer premises equipment (CPE), remotely update firmware, and apply security policies for firewalls and VPN access, all through a custom Web-based portal. Netopia is hosting the NBBS software for Pfizer's use at Netopia's hosting centers, allowing Pfizer personnel to securely access NBBS services on a subscription basis.
"We selected Netopia's NBBS remote management platform because it gives us the tools we need to reduce support calls and truck rolls to our remote sales representatives," said Jay Stallard, Senior Manager at Pfizer. "In addition to support cost savings, Netopia's software platform provides us a centralized management system for application of corporate security polices to ensure the integrity of Pfizer's network assets."
