3G kicker for Motorola enterprise assistant

Motorola is banking on the need for organisations to run applications over high-speed 3G networks with the latest local release in its enterprise digital assistant line, the MC75.

Territory account manager for Motorola’s enterprise mobility business, Ross Taylor, says 3G is a “safe technology bet” and a way for firms to “future proof their wide-area communications”.

“There are applications that would relish high speed, such as video. 3G will give rise to a lot of innovation and better way of doing things,” Taylor says.

Three local firms, in the transport and security industries, are evaluating the latest device in New Zealand using Vodafone’s 3G network, and Taylor expects adoption to increase around October.

The device supports 3.5G HSDPA (high speed downlink packet access) and 3G CDMA-EVDO for fast voice and data, along with integrated VOIP supporting peer to peer; PBX; push-to-talk; a built-in GPS receiver; 1D and 2D bar code scanning; a 2MP still and video camera; a, b and g wireless support; Bluetooth and infrared connectivity.

The rugged device can withstand drops of about 1.5 metres onto concrete and can operate at temperatures from 10 degrees below freezing point to 50 degrees Celsius.

Taylor says high speed video could especially suit the security industry and the health sector for remote patient management. Transport and logistics firms could also use the GPS capabilities to achieve efficiency in route planning and save on fuel costs.

The MC75 replaces its predecessor MC70, and costs $3000 to $4000 depending on the configuration
