AURORA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: WSTL), a leading provider of telecommunications equipment for wireline, wireless and home networks, today announced the availability of remote access functionality for its HomecloudTM product. The new feature is available in recently released software versions of Homecloud Digital Home Manager along with phone and tablet applications using Apple® iOS and Android operating systems.
“This feature completes the initial set of applications that we had planned for Homecloud,” said Rick Gilbert, Chairman and CEO of Westell Technologies. “It facilitates remote access utilizing dynamic DNS, via any internet connection, to data that is accessible to the Homecloud Digital Home Manager.

It significantly simplifies the management and sharing of data and media content, and it allows the user to enjoy the benefits of backup and sharing without the privacy and security concerns or the bandwidth demands that are inherent in cloud-based solutions.
