Network Utilities (Systems) Ltd has launched universal access software for secure wireless LAN access in the UK. The Surbiton, UK-based company said its Odyssey Client software can be used standalone or integrated into the connection manager software provided by WLAN hotspot providers and wireless ISPs.

Odyssey Client makes use of the IEEE's 802.1x protocol and the IETF's EAP- TTLS for allowing secure, anonymous connection to WLANs. Odyssey Client is compatible with a wide range of 802.1x adapter cards, and runs on various Windows versions including 98, Me, 2000 and XP. The software is priced at 37.50 pounds ($57.12) per license.

The technology was developed by Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Funk Software Inc, for which Network Utilities is the main UK distributor.
