GD Itronix Signs Reseller Agreement with In Motion Technology to Deliver Reliable Connectivity for Vehicle-Rugged Mobile Computing Solutions
Rugged computing solutions connected through a consolidated, secure mobile wireless communications platform lowers operating costs and enhances productivity for the mobile workforce
Vancouver, BC, January 24, 2012 – In Motion Technology, the leader in flexible, secure and enduring wireless systems that improve organization’s ability to communicate on the move, announced today that General Dynamics Itronix has signed a reseller agreement to supply In Motion’s highly resilient, rugged and integrated mobile communications solution for mobile workers in a vehicle environment. Through this reseller agreement organizations will be able to purchase the complete mobile computing and communications solution from General Dynamics Itronix. Rather than having separate systems or mobile devices operate using their own cellular data plans, organizations can connect mobile workers to and from the enterprise through a single, secure, shareable, in-vehicle broadband connection, enabling improved productivity for users and reducing wireless communications costs for organizations.
General Dynamics Itronix offers a suite of fully rugged and semi-rugged notebooks, tablet PCs and ultra-mobile devices that deliver fast, reliable, power-efficient computing for mobile professionals. Designed to perform in punishing field conditions that can include drops, shock, vibration, extreme heat and cold, computers by General Dynamics Itronix also have an Ingress Protection (IP) 65 rating, which ensures that the unit is sealed against dust and water.
“Adding In Motion Technology’s mobile communications solution to the General Dynamics Itronix product portfolio gives our customers an innovative new option for providing mobile workers with the secure and reliable connectivity they require,” said Doug Petteway, vice president of Marketing for General Dynamics Itronix.
In Motion Technology’s onBoard™ system turns utility vehicles into secure, manageable, multi-network mobile hotspots that provides connectivity for all in-vehicle applications and computing devices. It provides mobile workers with seamless and secure access to corporate applications over the best available wireless broadband network (including Wi-Fi, private and commercial 4G LTE or 3G cellular, public safety 700MHz, municipal mesh, private radio networks and satellite). The onBoard Mobile Gateway turns vehicles into mobile wireless hotspots, connecting tablets, handhelds, laptops, bar-code readers, and video cameras in and around the vehicle over any wireless network. The onBoard Mobility Manager is a powerful network management system that allows operations to manage and monitor the health of the vehicle fleet – including remote configuration, network coverage, and vehicle diagnostic data for heavy and light duty utility trucks. The onBoard Connection Manager is a mobile-optimized VPN server, providing IP mobility and sub-second switching in a multi-network environment designed to work with the mobile gateway and network management system. This complete system provides the fastest, simplest, and most cost-effective way to extend the enterprise network to the vehicle fleet.
“In Motion Technology is excited to be able to have General Dynamics Itronix as a reseller and provide complete vehicle-rugged solutions that help organizations gain real-time situational awareness of the vehicles and mobile workers that are critical to their business operations,” said Tony Morris, In Motion Technology’s vp of sales and marketing. “Together, our solutions will allow our customers to lower the cost of connecting its mobile fleet to the enterprise while improving worker productivity.”
