Motion Computing's New LINCWorks Portable Wireless Devices Make Instant Network Connectivity a Reality Anywhere

This innovative portable technology lets users quickly establish reliable WAN/LAN, cell and/or mesh connectivity at worksites and events that require a simple, rugged, self-contained solution.

When lives are at stake, first responders, search-and rescue personnel, law enforcement, healthcare personnel and other officials need immediate, dependable connectivity with central command – and each other – to manage critical situations. However this has been a long-time challenge for those responding to rural locations or large-scale emergencies like natural disasters, attacks and explosions. Whether the traditional communications networks are sporadic or non-existent becomes irrelevant when communications aren’t going through; the team just needs something that will work without disruption, one way or another. Many have tried rapid deployment of a portable communications networks, but it has been difficult, if not impossible, until now. The new Motion Computing LINCWorks RDA (Rugged Deploy Anywhere) wireless solution was designed specifically for otherwise unstable, hostile response environments. With the RDA’s self-contained, portable design and standalone battery power, dead zones in disaster areas become active, standalone – yet reliable – wireless networks with both voice and data connectivity capabilities in minutes.

The new devices make it easy to instantly create a cohesive WAN/LAN, cell and/or mesh communications infrastructure – anytime, anywhere.  Housed in a tough, NEMA-rated weatherproof case, the units are ideally suited for deployment in harsh, non-traditional environments like construction sites, oil and gas exploration platforms, emergency command centers and anywhere dependable connectivity is needed.

In addition, on-the-go workers in these fields have long tried to manage their own set of connectivity challenges in areas with less-than-reliable wireless signals. However, with the new LINCWorks VAN (Vehicle Area Network), private, company and fleet vehicles become a powerful mobile communications tool – allowing you to pull up to an emergency aide site and enjoy immediate, automated connectivity with established WAN/LAN, cell and/or mesh networks.

The LINCWorks RDA (Rugged Deploy Anywhere) products are self-contained, portable units built on cutting-edge wireless technology that integrates a proprietary six-antenna array and automated configuration software. These products allow users to quickly establish fast, reliable connectivity for field workers at remote, or temporary worksites.

“Motion’s focus and leadership in rugged computing has shown us that infrastructure connectivity across harsh, remote and other non-traditional environments that is essential for productivity has been lacking” said Dave Mackie, Head of Wireless Networking Products, Motion Computing.  “This concept takes a ‘network in a box’ approach that lets users instantly establish a WAN/LAN, cell and/or mesh infrastructure for the reliable exchange of mission-critical information anytime, anywhere.”

LINCWorks RDA and VAN products are currently available in North America.
