May 16, 2001--NetSeal Technologies -- a Finnish software company providing third generation IP-mobility solutions to carriers, corporations and equipment manufacturers -- introduced RoamMate, a secure IP-mobility software product that makes seamless roaming possible between WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth, GPRS and UMTS networks.

NetSeal Technologies -- a Finnish software company providing third generation IP-mobility solutions to carriers, corporations and equipment manufacturers -- introduced RoamMate, a secure IP-mobility software product that makes seamless roaming possible between WLAN, LAN, Bluetooth, GPRS and UMTS networks. NetSeal's software product was showcased this month at Networld+Interop in Las Vegas.

With NetSeal's IP-roaming technology, all users are securely connected to the network regardless of place, time, access media or terminal (laptop, PC, PDA, etc.). NetSeal's RoamMate IP-mobility software enables wireless network users to move freely from one network node to another without system reconfiguration - a critical factor in the expansion of mass-market wireless services.

While emerging wireless technologies are beginning to make it possible for operators to offer innovative new services, the best use of these technologies requires seamless and secure mobility across multiple networks. NetSeal's RoamMate provides automated roaming, for example, from wired Intranet to office WLAN to out-of-office GPRS and eventually to UMTS. RoamMate is already in use in Finland. Early adopters range from university campus and corporate LAN, WLAN and dial-up environments to the catering service company on trains operated by Finnish State Railways.

RoamMate software enables the users to freely roam between any wireless or wired connections without dropping packets or sacrificing security. Encryption in compliance with the IPSec standard, the IKE key exchange protocol and user identification work to guarantee network data security. RoamMate changes security keys every three minutes. Each client is given a unique key, which also prevents intruders from accessing the network. Uninterrupted connections are made possible by the automatic location update using DHCP, IP roaming and support for several different networks. RoamMate allows transfer of the terminal connection from one LAN, WLAN, Ethernet, modem, ISDN, CDMA, TDMA or GPRS connection to another.

RoamMate also includes support for Network Address Translation (NAT), which allows wider access via the Internet to a company's internal networks. RoamMate operates as a supplement to a wide selection of tools for versatile management of network traffic and such associated functions as invoicing and network management. RoamMate is available for Windows NT 4.0, 95, 98 and 2000 versions as well as for Linux.

NetSeal is now actively seeking international integration partners, vendors and clients.
