Source: Intermec, Inc.

Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Communications has grown from its initial cable cutting wireless specification in IEEE 802.11 in 1997 to a ubiquitous broadband wireless access technology with the release of current specifications in 802.11n - 2009. Enterprise operations have come to depend on WLAN for everyday business operations whether in the warehouse, over carpeted space, or on the road at available hot spots. Wi-Fi is simply everywhere. Intermec has been involved with 802.11 since its inception and understands the demanding requirements of using Wi-Fi for business operations.

The Intermec 70 Series ultra-rugged mobile computing platform represents the state-of-the-art in technology and industrial standards for handheld mobile devices using Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Communications. No matter what WLAN compatible infrastructure deployment (IEEE802.11abgn), no matter what the frequency band of operation (2.4 GHz or 5 GHz), the 70 Series Wi-Fi integration is designed to comply with Wi-FiAlliance requirements and offer exceptional performance. A wide range of Wi-Fi legacy and current security standards operation are supported; WPA, WPA2 personal and enterprise. Most importantly, the 70 Series computers are the industry’s first ruggedized handheld computers to contain the latest in Wi-Fi technology with IEEE802.11n operation.
