The first rugged enterprise digital assistant
The flagship MC70 Enterprise Digital Assistant
(EDA) is a rugged handheld mobile device that
incorporates a mobile phone, PDA, computer,
scanner and imager in a single unit designed for
the rigors of all-day, everyday usage. This compact,
lightweight device combines multi-mode wireless
networking, voice and data communications, and
advanced data capture in an enterprise productivity
tool that can support nearly any application in any
environment. Superior voice functionality includes
outstanding acoustic performance and voice quality,
handset, headset and speakerphone modes. Your
mobile workers will have everything they need
to increase productivity and efficiency inside and
outside your four walls — from field workers reading
meters and repairing equipment to drivers delivering
packages, hospital workers checking lab results and
medication orders, and more.
Rugged construction delivers a low TCO
The industry leading innovative mechanical design
and technology platform offer superior construction
and expandability, delivering outstanding investment
protection and a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Engineered to withstand rigorous use in extreme
environments and working conditions, the MC70,
including the internal WLAN and external WWAN
antennas, can endure multiple drops, a wide range
of temperatures, moisture, dust, and more and still
deliver reliable performance.
The MC70 offers robust and cost-effective anytime,
anywhere voice and data connectivity. For workers
outside of your facility, support for GSM/EDGE and
CDMA-EVDO networks delivers global coverage, fast
wireless data speeds that enable rich applications,
and enterprise level security. Inside your facility, the
MC70 connects to your wireless LAN for voice and
data communications, providing better control over
wireless WAN usage — and costs. And wireless PAN
functionality, via Bluetooth, further increases employee
productivity through wireless printing and more.
Reduce the cost and complexity of mobility
The versatile, effective MC70 is a smart investment,
providing a cell phone, PDA and more - all in a single
rugged device. Capital expenditures and IT support
costs are significantly reduced. Superior manageability
enables you to easily and remotely provision, track
and support all your MC70 devices from one central
location through our Mobility Services Platform.
A full suite of accessories provides maximum
application flexibility. And when you purchase Service
from the Start with Comprehensive Coverage, we
will repair damaged displays, plastics, keyboards,
circuit boards, and other internal and external
components at no extra charge — helping you protect
your investment and maintain peak performance.
