Do you work at a port? Rail yard? Are you an outdoors person obsessed with improving inventory and asset management at your company but the harsh work environment wreaks havoc on your wireless signals?

We know who you are, and we’re working harder than ever to provide you with the most complete solution in an economical way. Zebra’s new narrowband-enabled Omnii XT15 handheld mobile computer and the VH10 vehicle-mount computer are now available for large outdoor work settings.

Narrowband is a secure, low-bandwidth, long-range wireless network specifically designed to deliver very affordable and dependable digital wireless connectivity for data applications in large outdoor areas. It uses licensed frequencies that customers own and doesn’t conflict with other 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks.

According to Joe White, senior vice president of Mobile Computing at Zebra Technologies, “Together, these new offerings, combined with our digital narrowband infrastructure, allow customers to have better performing communications at a much lower operating cost ” This industrial solution offers a wireless infrastructure which as a result provides a lower total cost of ownership compared to Wi-Fi and cellular networks that come with monthly data costs.
