Amer Networks' Breakthrough Cloud-Managed Wi-Fi Solution Brings Security, Reliability and Affordability to Laconia School District
The First Large-Scale Wi-Fi Deployment Leveraging CloudCommand's Unique, Patented Security Makes Classroom Connectivity and Network Management a Reality for New Hampshire Schools
TORONTO and PALO ALTO, Calif.,Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Amer Networks, a manufacturer and global distributor of networking, storage and security products, and PowerCloud(TM) Systems, the leading software platform provider for cloud-managed networking services, today announce that the Laconia School District in Laconia, New Hampshire, has upgraded its wireless network to Amer's cloud-managed 802.11n wireless solution powered by CloudCommand(TM).
The new network delivers secure Wi-Fi to Laconia's entire public-school system and signals the district's commitment to delivering a 21st century learning environment to its 2,000 students. The installation additionally demonstrates how Amer's solution - which combines enterprise-type security and management features with unprecedented affordability - continues to set the standard for powerful, cost-efficient Wi-Fi in the K-12 market.
-- Laconia School District has completed a 76-unit installation of Amer's
cloud-managed Wi-Fi, the WAP223NC access point, into the district's six
schools and superintendent building. It supports up to 2,500 staff,
students and visitors who can access the Internet and private intranet
from classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, gymnasiums, preschool and adult
learning centers, daycare facilities and administrative offices.
-- The WAP223NC provides extensive coverage, automatic configuration,
business-grade features, remote-management capability, multi-site
roaming and hotspot functionality. It is the only Wi-Fi access point
designed specifically for the education market and is powered by
CloudCommand, a networking platform developed by PowerCloud Systems that
radically reduces customers' total cost of ownership.
-- Laconia's IT administrators apply the network's highest security setting
- called Individual Device Authentication (IDA) - to restrict
connectivity to authorized mobile devices. The patented IDA offers
two-factor security and enables administrators to individually identify
and secure hundreds of devices.
-- The district deployed each of Amer's self-configuring access points in
minutes, making setup a simple and quick process which a single IT
administrator accomplished in a matter of hours instead of days or
-- Once the network went live, teachers immediately reported the positive
impact it had on classroom instruction, particularly in the preschool
and elementary schools, where usage is highest. In the elementary
schools, 72 laptops travel daily between classrooms on computer carts
and require reliable Wi-Fi at all times. Most elementary students have
frequent access to iPads and netbooks.
-- Amer's network replaces a collection of independent access points,
including Apple's AirPort Extreme, Cisco 4410 access points and various
Linksys models. The old infrastructure failed to meet the district's
security and monitoring requirements and was unable to keep pace with
the proliferation of wireless devices accessing them.
-- Amer's solution was selected over competitive offerings from Aruba and
Aerohive due to its combination of business-grade management features
and unbeatable pricing.
-- The network provides visitor hotspot functionality, which Laconia
leverages to support events such as evening lectures, conferences, adult
education classes and sports activities. An innovative "front desk"
interface allows assistant administrators to manually adjust a user's
connectivity privileges without disrupting the network.
-- Remote-management functionality through the cloud enables three IT
administrators to manage the network from anywhere. In real time, they
track network usage, troubleshoot problems and monitor connected devices
by location and activity levels.
Jeff Twombly, Laconia School District IT director:
"Amer's cloud-based solution amazed us with how simple and fast it was to deploy and make operational. It provides everything a mid-sized school district needs and more - from self-configuring setup to real-time alerts and convenient remote management. The Amer solution exceeds our requirements and costs less than half of comparable solutions. It's the ideal solution for school-based Wi-Fi."
Wai Lee, CEO of Amer Networks:
"The Laconia School District leads the way when it comes to preparing students for long-term success. By installing the right technology infrastructure in its schools, it has enhanced teacher instruction and improved the overall learning environment. We specifically designed our cloud-managed Wi-Fi solution for districts like Laconia, and we're thrilled with their success."

Wow! Restaurant.com Extends 90 Percent Off Groundbreaking Megadeal
Consumers Get Amazing Savings for Cravings--No Kidding--$25 Gift Certificates for One Buck
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Sept. 30, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Restaurant.com, the company that offers affordable dining experiences at more than 18,000 restaurants nationwide, announced today its 90 percent off dollar-stretching megadeal has been extended through the end of today, Friday, September 30.
Thursday's over-the-top, one-day savings celebration was a smashing success. The company saved customers more than $10 million as of 5 p.m. Thursday evening. The immense popularity of the one-day deal prompted Restaurant.com to extend its 90 percent off super sale one more day.
"Our customers need only one George Washington---you know what I mean, just a single dollar to score a $25 certificate," said Restaurant.com CEO Cary Chessick. "That's $24 in your pocket and a great night out with friends or family."
Economists who believe the dollar is shrinking have not seen this deal. According to the Consumer Price Index, what cost one-dollar in 1902 would cost about $25 today. The 90 percent off megadeal offered by Restaurant.com is most likely one of the best buys in more than a century.
"Given recent market volatility, even risky investment strategies such as playing the lottery, betting big at the racetrack, or panning for gold may seem attractive," said Restaurant.com President Christopher Krohn. "But for just $1, investing in a Restaurant.com certificate can pay dividends the very next time you plan a night out."
Consumers can save 90 percent on already discounted Restaurant.com Gift Certificates by entering promo code WOW at checkout. The offer expires at 11:59 p.m. (Central Time) September 30, but Restaurant.com dining certificates never expire.
In addition to the wildly popular $25 denomination, this deal applies to all certificate denominations offered on Restaurant.com, which include values of $10, $50, $75 and $100. For instance, $50 gift certificates are just $2 and $100 gift certificates are just $4 today only. No kidding. Consumers are encouraged to act now before the company's bigwigs change their minds. A deal this good doesn't come around very often!
Restaurant.com helps deepen relationships and create lasting memories one dining experience at a time. The company offers savings at more than 18,000 restaurants nationwide with more than 45,000 daily gift certificate options. Restaurant.com brings family and friends together to relax, converse and enjoy dining out. Restaurant.com customers have saved more than $500 million since the Arlington Heights, Ill.-based company was founded in 1999.

-- Audi creates interactive mobile apps for all new models
HERNDON, Va., Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Audi of America launched a new mobile marketing experience aimed at delivering information on the brand's products whenever and wherever premium car buyers demand it.
The strategy began with the recent re-launch of m.audiusa.com powered by the latest HTML5 technology optimized for all mobile devices.

The mobile experience includes interactive banner ads on prominent Web sites and apps, and downloadable product apps featuring detailed content on new models, vehicle features and comparison data. The experience also allows users to locate nearby dealers, access dealer inventory and schedule test drives.
With this new functionality, Audi owners also can visit m.audiusa.com and find easy pathways to make Audi Financial Services lease payments or schedule maintenance visits through click-to-call functionality.
"Our research shows that 41 percent of U.S. Internet users shop for autos on their mobile devices and 92 percent of Audi buyers visit AudiUSA.com before purchasing their vehicle," said Scott Keogh, Chief Marketing Officer, Audi of America. "That's why we're taking a more sophisticated and interactive approach to meeting mobile customers on their terms."

One new example: Interactive iPad applications for the Audi A6, A7 and A8 models are now available for download in the iTunes App Store to let customers easily find rich content on the newest luxury Audi cars. Audi also created a custom Event Application for use at auto shows and other industry events. A robust set of Audi mobile advertising built around the new Audi A6 includes iAds, which are rich mobile immersive banners on the iPhone and iPad and other rich media experiences running on top-tier mobile sites, such as nytimes.com. The iAd allows users to explore key features of the A6 in an interactive experience, find the closest Audi dealer, schedule a test drive and when on an iPad, even download the A6 Experience directly to their device.
The latest mobile site strives to reach new mobile consumers at every point of the purchasing process, while enabling full transparency about Audi's model line-up, key Audi technology features and easy dealer access to potential Audi consumers. Based on reports surrounding the role of mobile technology in the car buying process, 44 percent of potential car buyers with smartphones will use them to compare prices right on a dealer lot and nearly 70 percent of Audi buyers had recently used major social media channels.(i)
These new experiences also give potential buyers a functional and visual platform to research and compare in real-time to help make the auto buying process efficient and hassle free, while also giving auto shoppers more control over when and how they access auto information.

A New Dating Site Finds Your Soul Mate Using Numerology
A New Dating Site, NumberforLove.com, uses Ancient Numbers to Match You Up
CARLSBAD, Calif., Sept. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- It might sound tricky or mysterious but it's really not. The new dating site NumberforLove.com relies on your unique numerology profile to match you with that perfect someone.
"This is the closest you can get to finding a genuine connection because our answers are based on who you really are, not responses to questions that are the same for everyone," said Valiee Loring, Founder.
"In this vast universe there are true soul mates for each one of us," says Valiee, "and we are here to help you find yours."
Launched in August 2011, NumberforLove.com is a new dating site that uses a person's life numbers to match them up. Number for Love analyzes numbers that won't lie and dates that won't change, like a person's birthdate. It then pairs users with someone that has a perfect complement to their numbers.
Typical dating sites use responses to questions that are nearly identical for everyone. The Number for Love matching algorithm utilizes an ancient and trusted approach that has been helping people for thousands of years. This deep analysis puts people further on their path to finding lasting relationships than simple "yes or no" questions can achieve.
Numerology is the study of the relationship between numbers and physical objects or living things. Numerology works for the same reason that the multiplication table works - it's based on time tested formulas. By applying these mathematical formulas to the numbers representing a person's name and birth date, a numerologist can arrive at a remarkably complete and accurate character analysis. It can be used to discover a person's personality, strengths and talents, obstacles, inner needs, emotional reactions and ways of dealing with others.
NumberforLove.com launched in August of 2011 as the first online dating site to employ a matching engine based on numerology. Security is provided by the S2Verify system to provide a safer and more secure dating experience for singles. Open to all users 18 years and older, NumberforLove.com caters to all types of relationships and welcomes diversity.
About the Founder, Valiee Loring
Valiee is a master numerologist; she holds a Doctor of Metaphysics degree (MsD), is a certified clinical hypnotherapist (CCH), and author and teacher in the field of metaphysics and personal growth. She was the numerologist for the Jeraldine Saunders Astrological Report, produced by Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd., and author of "Learn Numerology for Fun & Profit" a teaching workbook. She has over 40 years of practice in matchmaking and numerology.
