Mobile-IT company cuts jobs

Aether Systems, which helps companies incorporate mobile devices into their IT departments, said Monday that it is cutting 225 jobs, or a quarter of its work force. The Ownings Mills, Md.-based company said it will take a charge of about $11 million associated with the move, intended to help its efforts to reach profitability. "We remain committed to our path to profitability and will not yield from this goal," CEO Dave Oros said in a statement. "At the same time, it is never easy to let go of dedicated and talented employees, and we regret that the economic environment, along with slower-than-anticipated adoption of some wireless data solutions, has forced us to make these difficult decisions."
