JLT Mobile Computers AB: JLT Announces Significant Uprating to Wireless Connectivity Across its Existing Product Range of Rugged Computers

The latest Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G RF solutions deliver ultra-high performance
connectivity for rugged computers in the harshest of environments

Växjö, Sweden, 30 March 2015 * * *
JLT Mobile Computers,
Swedish developer and manufacturer of rugged computers for demanding
environments, has announced a significant technology leap forward for its
market-leading products by upgrading their wireless connectivity, giving
customers immediate access to the best wireless WAN, LAN and Bluetooth
performance in the rugged market.

Wireless connectivity is now arguably the primary method of communication,
particularly for mobile computers. By investing in upgrading its existing
product portfolio, JLT is leading the way in making rugged computing more
accessible and reliable for all mobile users. Using wireless technologies in
harsh environments can present end-customers with unique challenges; JLT
Mobile Computers' expertise in developing robust and reliable equipment for
use in exactly these environments makes it a leading solutions provider in
its field. Ensuring a reliable wireless connection in working environments
where most technologies would be rendered useless requires a sophisticated
connectivity solution leveraging the latest technology.

By integrating support for dual-band 802.11 ac, JLT delivers dramatically
faster Wi-Fi network speeds of up to 867 Mbit/s. It brings the freedom of
Gigabit-Ethernet to the mobile environment, even in the harshest of working
conditions. The new technology also supports more channels and therefore more
clients on a network's access point. This increased bandwidth delivers even
higher reliability, as well as much lower latency over the network. In short,
it allows more operatives to work more efficiently in even more diverse
locations.

In addition to dual-band Wireless-AC Wi-Fi, JLT has also integrated the latest
Bluetooth EDR 4.0 technology, which simplifies pairing with a
Bluetooth-enabled peripheral. The VERSO range has also the option to specify
4G LTE WAN connectivity with fallback capability to 3G and GSM, further
increasing bandwidth and improving overall connectivity. The 4G option also
includes Assisted GPS/GLONASS support.

By being the first to offer this level of reliable high-performance wireless
connectivity, JLT will extend its leadership in its existing markets within
warehousing, ports, manufacturing and mining, to other vertical markets that
demand high reliability coupled with performance.

Smarter networking

The new Wi-Fi technology now being deployed in the JLT VERSO series and the
JLT1214N logistics computers brings not only greater bandwidth but more
intelligent network management, supporting bandwidth balancing that can adapt
to the conditions of the network, such as demand and number of users.
Furthermore, all of JLT's computers come with built-in highly sensitive
Planar Inverted-F Antenna (PIFA) technology for both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
radio, designed specifically to deliver higher coverage in environments that
offer poor RF coverage. For more challenging RF environments, such as steel
cabins, the computers also support external antennas for both the Wi-Fi and
Bluetooth radio, which can be configured in the field, even after initial
installation.

"The decision to upgrade not only our future products or those currently in
development, but also our existing products, with the very latest in wireless
connectivity is yet another display of our commitment to remaining a leader
in the high-performance rugged market," said Per Holmberg, CEO, JLT Mobile
Computers. "This step dramatically improves the connectivity performance and
customer experience within the rugged space."

Availability

The JLT1214N, the VERSO series and the VERSO+ 10 products are available today
with the new technology upgrade.
