Making Sense of Wireless-Broadband Network Changes: Panasonic is Here to Help Guide You

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding 4G networks recently, and I wanted to take time and address this, exciting and sometimes a bit confusing, time of change with you. First and foremost, I wanted to let you know that we have already gone through this transition with our customers before – with the move from 2G to 3G networks – so we can proudly say that we have a lot of experience under our belts.  Over time and given our focus on wireless technology, we have developed strategic relationships with major U.S. carriers in order to build and deploy products that maximize the latest in network performance.

Since 1998 and the introduction of the first Toughbook mobile computer with Wireless LAN capabilities, Panasonic Solutions Company (PSC) has been at the forefront of wireless broadband developments. We have designed embedded wireless solutions to deliver the most robust network connectivity possible. This, in turn, provides our customers with an elegant and seamless wireless-broadband experience.

We believe that wireless innovations are just as important as rugged features of Toughbook mobile computers, which means that the hardware must be able to stand up to the rigors of the field, but the connectivity is key to providing customers with access to information and to increasing productivity. For this reason, PSC continually focuses on not only improving its products’ durability but also on improving their connectivity.

Just like in the past, Panasonic is in lock step with our customers and wireless partners during this transition. As 4G networks mature, we are committed and dedicated to collaborating with carrier partners to provide an optimized end-user experience for anywhere, anytime connectivity.

Due to our 14 years in delivering wireless solutions, we are in a unique position to provide our clients with a well-formulated and seamless transition to the new emerging 4G technologies. We have a clear roadmap to meet our customers’ ever-changing mobility needs. We are here to help you decide which solutions are the best for your evolving business requirements, and we plan to support a variety of connected solutions to meet our your mobility needs.

With regards to our current and future wireless offerings, we wanted to let you know that:

  • We will continue to support Gobi2000 in 2011/2012, based on customer requirements
  • We have already launched 4G-cabable devices, the Toughbook 53 and Toughbook 31mk2, with carrier certifications coming later this year

Change is good but it is never simple and easy. With our in-depth industry knowledge, my team of seasoned professionals and I are here to be your trusted, strategic advisor, and to help you make the best wireless-broadband decisions that are tailored to your specific needs.
