Comes equipped with Flexible Network radio that will provide on-the-fly, Wide Area Network selection capability
Automated identification and data capture equipment manufacturer Intermec is planning to introduce two new enhancements to the 70 Series product family – a new 1 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3715 processor and a Wide Area Flexible Network radio based on Qualcomm Incorporated’s Gobi 3G connectivity technology.
With the 1 GHz Texas Instruments OMAP 3715 processor, customers running data-hungry applications are provided with the fastest, most responsive platform available and the 70 Series also maintains its best-in-class power management and battery life performance to avoid unnecessary downtime.
In addition, the 70 Series now comes equipped with a Flexible Network radio that will provide on-the-fly, Wide Area Network selection capability and the Flexible Network radio, based on Qualcomm’s Gobi 3000 embedded module enables fast data communications on both CDMA and UMTS wireless networks.
The 70 Series will also deliver automatic "in route" switching between carrier networks providing customers with the flexibility to choose the network with the best geographic coverage and lowest cost.
Intermec Mobile Solutions Business Unit senior vice-president Earl Thompson said Intermec reduces connectivity limitations with the ability to deploy the 70 Series on virtually any 3G network and increases the speed of business with faster processing power.
"This increased flexibility reinforces Intermec’s commitment to delivering best-in-class rugged mobile computers with the capabilities necessary to conduct business anywhere, anytime in the field," said Thompson.
