The Benefits Of A Unified Platform For Mobile Computing
Taking Control of Your Enterprise Mobile Devices Doesn’t Need to be as Complex as Decoding the Genome
Siloed Provisioning, Multiple Operating Systems and Devices, Proprietary Connectors, and No Single Method for Managing Security: Welcome to the Minefield of Industrial Mobile Device Management.
Today, many organisations have disparate devices in multiple form factors for many uses, a myriad of applications for different tasks, and complex IT infrastructure – all of which are difficult and costly to maintain. These mobile solutions are also built on different technology platforms that force companies into siloed provisioning and application support. It’s a technology minefield. Honeywell’s mobile device platform can help navigate.
Honeywell has the clarity of vision, domain expertise, and solution to your mobile device challenges: Mobility Edge™. Mobility Edge is based upon extensive research gathered from Honeywell’s global community of customers from a range of technologies. Honeywell recognised that businesses wanted a unified hardware and software platform for all form factors – one that allowed for rapid deployments, robust performance, and adaptability to changing needs.
Honeywell completely rethought their approach to meeting the challenges of supporting a mobile workforce, and Mobility Edge was the answer. This unified, dynamic platform for mobile computing is designed to:
- Accelerate Deployments
- Optimise Business Performance
- Extend Lifecycle
- Strengthen Security
Established service and support data went into the development of Mobility Edge. Honeywell optimised their mobility devices based on the work patterns of many customers and actual users to deliver more realistic testing and precise engineering requirements. Using historical insights from service data, they addressed common failure points during the design phase, making their Mobility Edge products more resilient and stable. They also mined their detailed support data to further improve and refine product quality. By providing a unified hardware and software platform with an agile approach, they can bring you more secure and reliable solutions across your operation.
Mobility Edge offers an integrated, repeatable, scalable approach to workflow automation that is based on a common hardware and software platform. Designed for Android™, it delivers a unified platform that all software solutions are based on. Businesses can develop and deploy faster while reducing development costs.
The Mobility Edge unified platform is composed of:
- Common Hardware (System On Module, or SOM), which includes the CPU, memory, WWAN (in selected devices), WLAN, Bluetooth®, near-field communication (NFC), and
Zigbee (in selected devices).
- Common Operating System Image with support for multiple generations of Android, from Android O through Android R.
- Common Software Ecosystem that includes not just Honeywell software, but also Honeywell-approved ISVs (independent software vendors).
Together these common elements minimise your company’s cost, effort, and risk. They accelerate your time-to-value so you can start deploying devices into the hands of your mobile workers much faster. And they maximise your ROI by extending the lifecycle of your devices.
