Motion Upgrades Popular F5 and C5 Tablet Series with 4G XLTE and Intel's Latest Core-Series Processors
New rugged tablets deliver wireless connectivity, security, and processing power required for public safety’s demanding work environments
Motion Computing® unveiled two powerful new tablet PCs - purpose-built for the needs of public safety, healthcare, utility, and other workforces. Within its iconic chassis design, Motion has packed in critical upgrades to connectivity, processing power, security, and image capture technology. The new F5m and C5m rugged Windows®-based tablets make field workers more productive by increasing efficiency, helping to reduce data capture errors and improving real-time communication capability resulting in better decision making and labor cost savings.
Designed to deliver connectivity when it matters most, the F5m and C5m Tablets include new ultra-high speed 4G XLTE broadband radios that equip mobile workers with twice the bandwidth to boost productivity capabilities in the field. In combination with the tablets’ integrated 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology for local access network connectivity, the devices’ mobile broadband solution ensures reliable voice and data support in both high-traffic urban locales and remote job sites.
“Many of our public safety and utility customers operate within dense metropolitan areas where cellular network saturation can impact 4G wireless performance,” explained Peter Poulin, CEO for Motion. “Not all enterprise-focused mobile devices are compatible with the latest 4G wireless technology, which means signal availability and data speeds can be unpredictable for many. With Motion’s investment in XLTE and specifically the additional spectrum it provides, we are ensuring that those customers can access the fastest networks available when using our tablets.”
However, in today’s data-driven environment, it is critical that security not be compromised as data speeds - and consumption – increase. Long focused on protecting customers’ most sensitive data from malicious attack, Motion enables multi-factor authentication capabilities through a combination of password, fingerprint scanner and optional smart card reader for enterprise environments such as healthcare, public safety and manufacturing. The F5m and C5m now feature an optional self-encrypting drive*, and the security profile is further enhanced with the inclusion of WinMagic's SecureDocTM full disk encryption software and the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) as standard features. Additional theft recovery protection and remote manageability options are also available with the optional Absolute® Computrace® add-on.
Motion has also given the F5m and C5m series a significant upgrade that delivers high-end, lasting processing power. The addition of 5th Gen Intel® Core™ processors (Broadwell-U 2+3), including the highest performing i7 vPro™ chipset, provides the power to quickly move through computation-intensive applications, while increasing overall power efficiency. Paired with the ability to hot-swap the battery in the field, the F5m and C5m series tablets give you the power you need to stay productive for the duration of the job.
