Casio’s ultra-rugged DT-X8 to ship pre-loaded with Wavelink’s mobile device management and terminal emulation software
Casio has announced a partnership with Wavelink to pre-load the Avalanche, Terminal Emulation (TE), and Industrial Browser products on the DT-X8 rugged hand-held terminal.
Through this partnership with Wavelink, new Casio DT-X8 customers can quickly deploy the pre-loaded Wavelink Avalanche, Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE), and Wavelink Industrial Browser across their enterprise estate. Existing Casio DT-X8 customers will also be able to retrospectively download the mobility software onto their device.
John Martin, Director of Sales EMEA at Wavelink explains “Managing a mobile device environment across an enterprise is an extremely challenging job. This partnership simplifies the deployment and management of that environment with Avalanche, while also giving Casio DT-X8 customers the most widely used TE platform on the market.”
Guy Boxall, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Casio explains “This partnership further supports Casio’s growth within the mobility sector. Having Wavelink’s mobility software preloaded on the ultra-rugged DT-X8 provides faster and very efficient product integration for our customers”.
The ultra-rugged DT-X8 hand-held terminal was introduced by Casio in 2011, and is proving to be very successful. It is particularly ideal for use in very tough applications where the rugged design is paramount; having an IP67 rating (total water submersion), drop tested to 3 metres and a battery life of up to 25 hours is a key benefit to the user.
Every Casio DT-X8 will be supplied pre-loaded with the following Wavelink software:
• Wavelink Avalanche enables remote hands-free setup and management of hand-held devices from the initial stages of provisioning, all phases of mobile computer use, returning devices into the population from service, repair or alternative use, and into retirement.
• Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE) is the market leader with over 4 million clients installed. TE is a complete environment, available to every device running Wavelink TE at no additional cost. The environment includes Session Persistence, Screen Reformatter, and high level of customization with settings and configuration options, and automation of data entry using scripting tools.
• Wavelink Industrial Browser allows customers to access traditional host-based apps and web-based apps with one software deliverable. The Industrial Browser offers features to integrate scanning, security, speech and security for workers using web-based apps.
