Smith Micro Provides Wireless Connection Management Software for Getac Rugged Laptops and Tablets
Getac Rugged devices get equipped with simple, secure, and reliable wireless connectivity features from Smith Micro’s QuickLink Mobility
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. –Smith Micro Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) today announced Getac Inc., a leading manufacturer of rugged computers, is offering the QuickLink® Mobility connection management solution to enable simple, secure, and reliable wireless network access on select Getac devices.
Getac’s rugged computers allow mobile users working in extremely challenging environments, such as military, public safety, utility and field service industries to get their jobs done. These customers expect dependable and secure wireless connections, so Getac tapped Smith Micro, the long-time leader in mobile connectivity, as their software partner to meet these needs. Smith Micro’s QuickLink Mobility makes wireless network connections fast and reliable, helping first responders, field soldiers and other users of rugged devices to get online and stay online, safely and easily.
“The mobile field workers we serve are often in areas of limited coverage or in situations where they move from network to network. Our rugged laptops and tablets are durable and reliable for any situation they may encounter, so the software they use needs to have the same durability and reliability," said Tom Wang, product marketing manager for Getac. “Smith Micro has supplied many of the largest wireless operators and device makers with QuickLink connection management solutions for years, so combining their QuickLink Mobility application with our rugged computers made perfect sense.”
“For these mobile users of rugged devices, dependable connectivity is not optional - a lost connection could put lives at stake,” said Doug Louie, senior director or product marketing for Smith Micro. “Getac products are known for their quality and durability, and we’re proud that Getac has chosen to offer our QuickLink Mobility solution to their customers.”
