Zebra Mobilty DNA

Zebra Mobility DNA

Android provides the opportunity to implement a mobility strategy to solve multiple business challenges across the supply chain. OpalTec recommends Android devices from Zebra technologies for multiple applications across the supply chain whether it is the MC3300 being used for receiving deliveries, the WT6000 for picking orders, the TC75 for managing the delivery process, or the ET50 Tablets and TC51 for serving customers in store. The devices are rugged and capable so it is important that the software tools are secure and reliable too. OpalTec uses Zebra Mobility DNA to enhance the capabilities, and security of Android mobile devices and to make implementation rapid and trouble free.

Mobility DNA is the genetic code that gives Zebra mobile computers distinct enterprise capabilities. Its unique ecosystem of software transforms Android™, the world’s most popular consumer operating system, into an enterprise-ready force. Now, the pains common to other enterprise mobility platforms disappear—making operations a powerhouse of productivity, management simpler, and integration problem-free.

Mobile operating systems are changing – Are you ready?

Organisations with mobile devices currently running applications that require a legacy Microsoft mobile operating system (Windows CE 6 or Windows Mobile/Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5) will soon face the end of support for their platform.

Mainstream support, which includes regular updates, has ended for both legacy systems, and Microsoft extended support (security fixes etc.) will end for Windows CE 6 in the first half of 2018, and for Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 at the beginning of 2020. After these dates, organisations will be unable to obtain fixes should a vulnerability or error be found in Microsoft code.

OpalTec has prepared a short document detailing how mobile operating systems are changing.

 

OpalTec can provide a pain free transition to Android

Transitioning from legacy Windows platforms to Android involves writing new apps, adapting workflows and changing the mobile devices that workers use, which can prove to be a significant undertaking for any IT department.

OpalTec exhibits at RBTE

  

The RBTE Exhibition at Olympia in London, provided OpalTec with a great opportunity to meet with our customers and show them how we are Innovating Enterprise Mobility within the retail sector.

Business Development Manager James Mellor said “Some of the media is predicting a difficult time for retailers in the UK, but it was good to speak to retailers and understand how innovation and technology is enabling them to embrace the omni-channel world and challenge this trend. Particular areas of interest were mobile payment technologies, using RFID for better inventory management, and how OpalTec’s EMM (Enterprise Mobility Management) solution can help retailers deliver an agile and responsive mobile technology strategy.”

OpalTec's stand exhibited products from its key partners including Zebra Technologies, Honeywell, Datalogic, Cipherlab, Nordic ID and SOTI

 

 

Zebra ET50 – The Enterprise Tablet

The standards Configuration includes Google Mobile Services (GMS) and Android for Work (AFW). GMS provides intergrated Google applications such as Gmail, Google Maps, and Google Play Store, while AFW offers enterprise features such as Mobile Application Management (MAM). The Professional Configuration ships without Google GMS and AFW, eliminating all service connexions, thereby maintaining system privacy while retaining Zebra value-adds.  Both configurations are built on Android Open Source (AOSP).

Zebra TC51 is here!

BEAUTY, BRAWN AND BRAINS — EVERYTHING YOUR WORKERS WANT, WITH EVERYTHING YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS


Today’s workers want a device that is every bit as contemporary and easy to use as the smartphone they use every day. You need a device that will last for years, built for all-day every day enterprise use, with all the features you need to enable your workers to achieve peak productivity and keep your data secure. Now you can have it all with the TC51 and TC56 Touch Computers from Zebra. No more compromising device design for enterprise functionality — or enterprise functionality for device design. Built for the new business world, you get an industrial design that looks and feels like the most popular pocketable consumer-style smartphones to meet worker expectations, along with the durability, enterprise-class features, power, security and manageability your business requires. And with many unique Zebra-only features, you get a touch computer that is truly in a class of its own. The TC51 and TC56 — the next evolution in enterprise touch computing.

tc51Active Edge™ Touch Zone for One-touch Access to the Features Your Workers Use the Most

Create unique dedicated keys on either side of the display for one-touch access to the most frequently used device features and applications, from the scanner, camera and line-of-business applications to telephony features such as push-to-talk and text messaging.

Maximum Display Size with Advanced Technology

The 5 in. display offers plenty of real estate for graphics-intensive intuitive applications. This capacitive touch panel gives your workers easy, familiar and flexible multitouch operation that works even when wet, with a gloved finger or a stylus. And with best-in-class outdoor readability, the screen is easy to read, even in bright sunlight.

The Ultimate Scanning Performance

With our advanced scanning technology and PRZM Intelligent Imaging, your workers get lightning fast capture of 1D and 2D barcodes, even if they are damaged, dirty and poorly printed — or displayed on a screen. An extraordinary working range plus a wide field of view increases application flexibility — workers can scan barcodes nearer and farther away. And omnidirectional scanning delivers true point and shoot — there is no need to ever align barcode and scanner.

Automatically Capture and Process Entire Documents

With SimulScan Document Capture, a Mobility DNA ingredient, your workers can simultaneously capture barcodes, text fields, phone numbers, images, signatures and even check boxes in the time it takes to press a button, improving invoicing and order speed and more.

Business Tough

Ultra-high Resolution Photos

The 13 MP camera allows workers to easily document proof-of-condition, proof-ofdelivery, proof-of-service and much more.

The Processing Power to Do It All

The blazing 1.8 GHz hexa-core 64-bit processor can run everything your workers need to take care of business, from multiple graphics-intensive lineof- business apps to PBX deskphone functionality. You get better performance and better power consumption — while the processor uses up to 15% less power, apps run up to 5 times faster. And with support for Marshmallow and the next two versions of Android (‘N’ and ‘O’), you get superior investment protection.

Rugged and Ready for Business

While the TC51 and TC56 look like a smartphone, your workers can drop it in water or onto concrete, use it in dusty areas and more — and still expect reliable operation. The unibody design provides extra impact protection for the sensitive electronics. And the Corning Gorilla Glass touch panel and imager window bring maximum scratch- and shatter-proofing to two of the most vulnerable device features.

PowerPrecision+ Battery for Bestin-class Power and Manageability

Your workers depend on their mobile devices nearly every minute of the workday. This user replaceable battery delivers up to an impressive 14 hours of power,2 ensuring that workers have plenty of power for the longest shift and devices are always available. A wealth of easily accessible battery metrics make it easier than ever to identify, remove and replace aging batteries. And with Warm Swap mode, users can change the battery without losing connectivity — no reboot is required.

Unsurpassed Security with Zebra’s Mobility Extensions (Mx)

Mx is a series of features that make Android a more robust enterprise class operating system. Another Mobility DNA ingredient, Mx is pre-installed on every TC51/TC56 device and is simple to deploy, allowing you to easily create the most secure, purpose-built, enterprise class Android device. With Android and Mx, you can prevent unauthorized users from accessing the device, as well as the installation and opening of unauthorized apps. Additional device controls prevent configuration errors that can take the device offline and erode worker productivity. The ability to actively detect vulnerabilities and automatically execute the right corrective action helps prevent data leaks and more.

Multiple Configurations to Meet Different Business Needs

Standard Configuration devices come with Google Mobile Services (GMS) and Android for Work (AFW). GMS provides integrated Google applications such as Gmail and Google Maps, and AFW adds more enterprise-class features. Professional Configuration devices ship without GMS and AFW, promoting greater privacy and security of personal information. Both configurations are based on Android Open Source (AOSP).

Every strand of your mobility platform is simpler with Zebra’s Mobility DNA. That’s because right from the start, you have the industry’s most comprehensive suite of mobility must-haves to accelerate your solution.

The Highest Quality Voice in its Class for Crystal Clear Voice Calls

Speakers that deliver four times the loudness of popular smartphones and noise-cancellation technology ensure that callers on both ends of every call can hear every word — regardless of the volume of background noise.

The Fastest, Most Dependable Wireless Connections Inside and Outside the Four Walls

The Wi-Fi enabled TC51 supports the fastest Wi-Fi connections with the most robust roaming support. The Wi-Fi and 4G LTE cellular-enabled TC56 keeps workers connected no matter where they are — in your facility or out in the field.

A Complete Suite of Enterprise Accessories

A trigger handle and a variety of holsters make it easy to use the TC51 and TC56 in just about any workflow. Backroom management is easier with the ShareCradle that can charge it all — device and batteries, plus convenient multi-slot chargers. With an Ethernet connection option available for hare Cradles, syncing data with backend applications is easy. And vehicle cradles are ideal for delivery drivers and technicians out in the field.
