Intermec Hand Held
Connectivity to Nextel
Background
Many of our target customers are currently using Nextel for voice communications.
Using Nextel as the "wireless radio" tethered to our handheld has many advantages
1. The customer has already validated coverage. Any place they have voice
communications they will have data.
2. The customer has already invested in the phone (which may have been
subsidized when they signed their contract, furthering lowering the "investment"
cost of the radio) so the cost of the cable is a minor purchase. This makes
wireless enablement much cheaper than a vehicle-based or hand held integrated
radio. It is also very cost competitive, and often less expensive, than a Type II or
Compact Flash radio card.
3. The technician will still have voice as well as data communications with the
dispatcher.
At this time, Nextel is supporting circuit switched and packet wireless data
communications. The cable and docking solutions identified here will be the same for
circuit or packet. Wireless data requires activation of Nextel Online Dial Up Services.
Some items identified here must be purchased from Motorola or Nextel. Also, the
customer's software application must be capable of supporting circuit (dial-up) or packet
data.
If you have a customer interested in using Nextel, be sure to engage the Nextel
representative (the customer should know who his contact is). We want Nextel
involved in all our data rollouts. Nextel will help the customer validate the version of
phone, the version of firmware on the phone, and their contract to make sure data is
enabled.
There are three solutions for connecting an Intermec 602 or Intermec 700 to a Nextel
phone data capable phone Motorola i500plus, i550plus, i700plus, i1000plus).
1. Cable connection to the phone
2. Cable connection from the phone to an Intermec vehicle dock
3. Motorola car kit with junction box cabled to the Intermec vehicle dock.

Solution #3: Intermec dock with cable connection to Motorola Vehicle Car Kit
Supported Equipment
•
Intermec 602, Intermec 700
•
Nextel/Motorola i500plus, i550plus, i700plus

This does not support the i1000 plus phone, Motorola does not manufacturer a
vehicle cradle for the i1000plus phone
This is the recommended configuration for users who will require regular
communications between the phone and mobile computer. (The user may also want a
data cable option for communication when out of the truck). Not only does it provide
power, security and data communications, the use of the vehicle docks will minimize
service calls and equipment downtime. For ultimate ruggedability, the Motorola i700plus
phone is recommended. The durable i700plus portable meets environmental test
requirements for vibration and mechanical shock per Military Spec: MIL-STD-810 C/D/E.
It is available in yellow or black.
The Intermec vehicle dock provides charging, data communications, and a secure place
to view and store the mobile computer while in the vehicle. The Motorola Car Kit
includes a phone cradle which provides power and data communications to the phone.
A DB9 to DB9 cable provides data communication between the junction box (which is
mounted under the dash or seat) and the Intermec dock. A Y-Power cable connects to
the vehicle's battery and provides power to the Intermec dock and junction box, which in
turn provides power to the phone cradle. The junction box provides signal conditioning
and surge protection as well as a serial connector for external data terminal connection.
The Intermec dock provides signal conditioning and surge protection as well as a serial
connector.
