Essential Technologies for Vehicle-Rugged Notebooks

White Paper from General Dynamics

IT managers, equipping employees whose offices are on wheels, must determine which computers can survive the demanding vehicle environment without carrying the cost premium associated with fully-rugged systems. For many professions, such as law enforcement, public safety and telecom, notebooks are docked in either vehicles or offices and aren’t exposed to the harshest conditions, like a rainstorm. The mobile workforce needs a notebook with the right mix of durability, performance, security and cost, somewhere between commercial-grade and fully-rugged. A new category of notebooks, called “vehicle-rugged,” meets these requirements.

This white paper reviews leading-edge technologies that IT managers should evaluate and consider when selecting a vehicle-rugged notebook. These technologies provide durability for the road, office-level computing performance, and added security to protect confidential data. For the full whitepaper, visit http://bit.ly/mfTM42.
