With new Gobi mobile broadband technology from Qualcomm, Panasonic Toughbook® mobile computer users can connect globally using Panasonic’s next-generation wireless computers. Users can take advantage of high-speed 3G mobile internet networks to increase productivity and reduce downtime, while securing a reliable connection virtually anywhere a cell phone can be used.
Gobi is the first multi-mode (EVDO/HSPA) embedded wireless solution for mobile computers, giving users the ability to connect with major wireless carriers. Through the Panasonic Carrier Selection Application (CSA) software platform, the need to physically switch out various single-module, carrier-specific modems to select a different carrier has been eliminated. Gobi-enabled Toughbook mobile computers can access AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless wireless networks with one wireless device. Using the CSA, users are able to select or change to the best carrier for any geographic area.
The CSA will allow IT administrators to manage the wireless access of entire fleets without being locked into a specific carrier at time of purchase. Toughbook mobile computers enabled with Gobi mobile broadband technology will reduce the challenges and hassles of retrieving computer units out in the field simply for the purpose of changing wireless carriers.
Before Gobi, global connectivity required multiple SKUs and network cards as well as complex inventory procedures, making system management a challenge. But, with Gobi, IT administrators only have to contend with a single SKU for all regions and no external cards, lowering IT procurement, qualification, support and management costs.
Panasonic, pioneer of the industry’s most rugged, battle-hardened, time-tested portable mobile computers, will, in the third quarter of 2008, offer Gobi mobile broadband technology on its business, semi and fully-rugged mobile computers, saving organizations both time and money practically anywhere in the world.
