Built for Change, Adaptive CrossfirePro Tablet Energizes Customized Mobility

entegra technologies Addresses Obsolescence in the Enterprise With an Open, Modular Hardware and Software Platform Designed for Long Life and Adaptability for Ever Changing Technology

PLANO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- entegra technologies Inc., a leader in customizable tablets, today announced CrossfirePro™ a truly modular platform for mobile tablet users. CrossfirePro revolutionizes the traditional tablet, built for change with modular components that can incrementally adapt to keep pace with new and ever-changing business requirements and technologies. CrossfirePro supports both ARM and x86 processors running Microsoft Windows, Android, and Linux operating ecosystems.

The CrossfirePro tablet is engineered to perform in all environments, indoors or out, hot or cold, wet or dry, and can be easily upgraded by swapping out individual pieces to incorporate new technology options. CrossfirePro will be especially useful for commercial and military customers that require performance, security, and longevity. Customers across a number of industries including restaurants, retail, energy, and military have expressed their interest and have confirmed the need for a modular platform, with a number of them having placed pre-orders for CrossfirePro.

"With CrossfirePro, we've built a modular tablet that offers our customers choices today and tomorrow between operating systems, processor ecosystems, I/O ports, integrated accessories, and wireless connectivity, while including a daylight-readable, multi-input display, and a rugged IP65 design," said Steve Carpenter, CEO, entegra technologies. "Adaptive performance is at the core of CrossfirePro. This will be highly beneficial for IT and users alike as it delivers a tailored solution for exacting daily activities, resulting in greater efficiencies, improved response times, productivity and customer service levels."

"CrossfirePro is a dynamically different approach to the current tablet landscape," said Shaunna Black, managing partner, Venture Pacific Group. "It solves a big issue facing enterprise IT and field project teams -- the need to support different users and use cases with a common, secure platform. The CrossfirePro modularity allows the tablet to be uniquely tailored to meet the specific needs of each user group while making life simpler for IT with a single platform to manage."

"This is a significant shift that helps an enterprise to move beyond the days of built-in hardware obsolescence and disposing of mobile devices," said Toni Portmann, CEO at Lockin. "Corporate budgets are getting tighter and ROI requirements are being calculated over longer periods so companies need a mobile platform that performs today and adapts tomorrow to their evolving needs. CrossfirePro from entegra technologies enables a business model of incremental change and adapting to an evolving mobile landscape."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
