The Toughbook Advantage
For 15 years, Toughbooks have been the industry's
most reliable and
notebook computers. And as wireless data has evolved from a
low-speed luxury to high-speed digital technologies over the
years, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company has remained at
Toughbooks are designed with built in data
radios and modems that allow you to take advantage of the all
the current wireless technologies. The self-contained data transmitters
and antennas provide you with superior performance and a sure
way to connect to your carrier's network.
The way we construct Toughbooks also provides
you with protection on your investment from the environmental
conditions your mobile workers do business in everyday. We embed
the OEM modules to shield them from interference caused by noise
and heat and integrate the antennas next to the LCD to provide
an unblocked transmission area. For anyone who relies on wireless
data to get their job done, nothing compares to a Toughbook.
The Toughbook Advantage:
- Greater return on investment, for the past three years,
damage rates have risen 22.5%, with an average damage incident
cost of $2,900. At the same time, the functions that mobile
PCs are required to perform have evolved to mission critical
status. Professionals cannot afford to be without their
computers-offline, unproductive, out-of-touch.
With Panasonic Toughbooks, time isn't wasted transferring
data from damaged systems, recovering lost work, hiring
expensive IT consultants or replacing failed notebooks.
Designed for unparalleled performance and durability, Panasonic
Toughbooks have become the industry's most reliable mobile
PCs-they're your best defense against downtime.
- Toughbooks have embedded OEM modules that are shielded
against interference caused by noise and heat
- Toughbooks have integrated antennas that are located next
to the LCD which provides for an unblocked transmission
- Toughbooks provide users with the most robust reception
available in the marketplace.Toughbooks provide users an
integrated system that provides the user with a longer life
expectancy for the laptop and the battery.
Why your company needs to be wireless
The remote and mobile worker population is at 78 million employees
and growing. From traveling executives to repair technicians,
this wireless workforce includes millions of employees who work
in the field and rarely if ever sit at a desk, much less frequent
a main office. These mobile workers need to stay connected to
what's going on in their organization. As a result, in order
for your company to stay competitive in the marketplace, wireless
communication has become an everyday necessity.
Putting the Tough in Toughbooks
We build Toughbooks with a durability that's designed into every
hinge, keyboard and connector. Toughbooks endure stringent U.S.
Military MIL-STD-810F testing procedures that measure for dust,
water, vibration, extreme temperature and moisture resistance,
as well as drop shock absorption. Toughbooks can take it-day in
and day out.
Integrated Wireless Options
Each Toughbook is designed to solve different business challenges,
and can be fitted with WLan, Bluetooth or GPS depending on customer
Integrated Wireless vs. PC Cards
The biggest obstacle mobile workers face is the downtime they
experience from slow transmission speeds caused by internal
and external interference. The amount of interference a user
experiences varies based on their laptop. However, it has been
proven that mobile workers who use laptops with PC cards experience
the most interference and mobile workers who use laptops with
integrated wireless experience the least amount of interference.
Laptop users with PC cards experience more internal RF and heat
interference because the card is located right next to the noise
and heat-generating components like the CPU. Do you remember
watching TV and the screen would go fuzzy when other electrical
appliances were used at the same time? The fuzzy screen on your
TV was caused by RF interference.
The same type of RF interference can be experienced by the PC
card in a laptop. Additional interference is caused by these
components from the heat they generate. Heat can cause a user
to experience frequency shifts and less-than-optimal performance
from a laptop. And, it will degrade the laptop's internal components.
Panasonic understands the major causes of interference and has
designed laptops with goal of minimizing it.
Laptop users experience external interference, not only from
the location of the antenna, but also from their work environment.
And, other computer companies don't appear to take the work
environment into consideration when they continue to insert
PC cards into their laptops. When a worker is mobile, the PC
card is likely to get hit and possibility disconnected. This
situation is easy to fix but can create additional downtime.
The other most common problem involves pieces of the broken
PC card causing internal damage to the laptop. This situation
can be more severe and costly to fix. There is also the issue
of environmental interference caused by the transmission area.
