Two Technologies' Hand Held Computers Streamline Enterprise Air Mobile Security Solutions
Horsham, Pennsylvania, May 30, 2006-Enterprise Air recently selected Two Technologies' JETT®.XL hand held computer with JETT.PACK(TM) in their pursuit to offer a more user-friendly and rugged hardware solution for its Mobile Badge Management Suite of Physical Security & Emergency Management Tools.
A leading provider of mobile solutions for the physical security and emergency first responder segments of the Homeland Security market, Enterprise Air (www.enterpriseair.com) offers an integrated suite of mobile software applications that address the physical security and emergency needs of both the government and public sectors. Using secured hand held devices to host its software, Enterprise Air creates mobile solutions that enable law enforcement officers, emergency response workers and other authorized personnel to scan badges, verify ID credentials, check license plate numbers and run ad-hoc checks on individuals from any location. Information can be transmitted to a central server for processing.
Previously, Enterprise Air utilized bulky, non-rugged external attachments to hand held computers to house the iClass, smart card, and proximity card technology required as part of its access control and security solutions. Units were cumbersome and heavy, while peripherals were exposed to the environment.
Through its JETT.PACK application hardware interface, Two Technologies (www.2t.com) can integrate virtually any sensor or communication device into a variety of its Pack Ready hand held computers. With the JETT.PACK option, Enterprise Air was able to build an interchangeable ID card reader that integrates into Two Technologies' most powerful and rugged handheld computer, the JETT.XL. This enabled the development of a compact, one-piece Mobile ID Card Reader that was both rugged and user-friendly.
"The JETT.XL allows us to offer our Mobile ID Card Reader as a convenient, one-piece unit without any add-ons to accommodate additional peripherals," explains Michael Hejtmanek, Founder & CEO, Enterprise Air. "No other hand held computer on the market could offer us this capability."
In addition to smart card and proximity card technology, Enterprise Air integrates its own OEM reader modules to support different card technologies and interfaces. "Using the JETT.PACK with the JETT.XL hand held, we are able to exclusively build an interchangeable ID Card Reader module that is completely integrated with the hand held," reports Hejtmanek.
Along with its capacity to integrate a variety of peripherals and communication devices with the JETT.PACK option, the JETT.XL is one of the fastest, most powerful mobile computers on the market. Incorporating a powerful Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET 5.0 operating system, along with an Intel® PXA270 XScale(TM) technology processor, the JETT.XL delivers high performance (624 MHz) for fast information processing. Featuring Xscale RISC, with on-the-fly voltage and frequency scaling, the JETToXL has sophisticated power management to provide industry-leading performance.
Designed with a rugged IP65 rated package, the JETToXL is completely dust-tight and can withstand exposure to jets of water as well as operating temperatures of -20ºC to 50ºC. A casing made of GE Xenoy makes it one of the most durable, chemical-resistant hand held computers available on the market today.
"As our mobile solutions are often used in changing weather conditions and dropped by users, it is important that the hand held device be very durable," noted Elizabeth Nichols, Account Executive. "In addition to being rugged, the JETT.XL offers a backlit keypad that allows users to see the screen and keys at night."
Offering a variety of customization options, the JETT.XL hand held computer enabled Enterprise Air to customize features such as the keyboard, overlays and logos. Now, Enterprise Air can customize keyboard commands to customer requirements.
"With these different options, we can satisfy each customer's specific requirements," says Nichols. "For example, if a customer needs a keypad to function in low light conditions, we will be able to provide them with a solution for that problem. If another user requires a streamlined appearance for their keypad, we will also be able to accommodate their needs without compromising the technology."
