Wireless Mobile Computing
Wireless mobile computing, sometimes referred to as enterprise mobility solutions, consists of hardware and software used to perform information capture and transfer. Some hardware components include handheld terminals and PDAs, notebook and laptop computers, wireless networks (local area and wide area), connectors, and a variety of other AIDC technologies, including laser and imaging scanners, RFID interrogators, and voice recognition components.
As the wireless part of AIDC has progressed, terminals can now be used for communication and for connecting to the Internet. Voice communication can be achieved through portable terminals using traditional wireless technology (such as cell phones) or by using voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
Wireless mobile computing is poised for phenomenal growth. Field service is just one example of where wireless mobile computing can save companies millions of dollars. Technicians can check replacement part availability, record service calls, and even send a message to a billing department in real time. Sales and route accounting are still other applications that stand to benefit from this new technology.
Most of all, wireless mobile computing enables workers to have complete access to the information they need whether in or out of a company’s headquarters. Mobile workers can now have the same benefits as workers who are assigned to stationary work environments.
