In recent years, rugged devices have progressed to integrate features that enable frontline connectivity. Three-quarters of market users we surveyed said that enhancing coordination and connectivity was a significant advantage of rugged technology and enjoyed being linked in any situation.

FREMONT, CA: Rugged devices are all over. If one has recently been to the supermarket, accepted delivery, or had the building work done on the house, a sturdy mobile or tablet may have been part of the process. What was once considered a niche genre, characterized by bulky hardware, was revamped. The new rugged device blends the conventional telephone's versatility and reliability with the design and design of a consumer smartphone.

Facilitating Frontline Communication

When one talks about networking, they speak about networks and sensors and the way people communicate. People lie at the core of these sectors and will be the main drivers of whether or not emerging technology will be effective. As such, the instruments they use must be purpose-built to facilitate connectivity in the most intense of conditions.

In recent years, rugged devices have progressed to integrate features that enable frontline connectivity. Three-quarters of market users we surveyed said that enhancing coordination and connectivity was a significant advantage of rugged technology and enjoyed being linked in any situation. This connectivity is activated by features such as the push-to-talk functionality, enabling staff to use their computer as a walkie-talkie without having to open their device and access the call program. This functionality is essential for first responders needing immediate contact, with one in five emergency response staff believing that it will have the most significant effect on their business. The ability to access heavy-duty gloves is invaluable for those employed in commercial settings, with 83 percent of consumers benefiting from increased time management by using durable handsets.

This instant usability level is symbolic of how rugged handsets have been used in recent years and is now a significant pull factor for those looking to invest in modern hardware. The days of low pixel screens and old operating systems are gone, with new handsets now running the same interface as staff can have with their own devices. The easy-to-use Android OS that one runs on their rugged devices has proven to be a standard familiarity for those with the same interface on their consumer device; it is as easy-to-use as it's hard to crack.
