3 Ways the Honeywell Mobility Edge Platform Will Transform Enterprise Mobility
The Honeywell Mobility Edge Platform reduces the complexity to build, deploy, manage, and extend the lifecycle of mobile solutions—and it does it all better, faster, with less risk, and with lower costs than how you were able to manage enterprise mobility in the past. The Honeywell Edge Platform has three key components that allow it to deliver these results:
- A new system on module (SOM) Android-based platform
- Deployment and performance optimizing tools
- Android support and security services
The platform has the attention of businesses with enterprise mobility deployments, such as warehouses, distribution centers, and transportation and logistics providers. Miles Data joined more than 500 other attendees at Honeywell’s Sensor and Productivity Solutions (SPS) Partner Conference, Grow 2018, February 13-15, 2018, in Dallas, to learn more.
The SOM Core
We attended the “Accelerating the Edge by Rethinking the Core” presentation at Grow 2018, for details of the platform’s SOM core, created through a partnership with QualComm, Google Android, and Honeywell. Why is the SOM core so revolutionary? The scalable architecture allows enterprises to develop once and deploy across many device types, since the hardware and software the computer is essentially the same.
The SOM core is a single, certified module that includes:
- Near-field communication (NFC)
With the SOM core, enterprise mobility deployments are transformed for the modern enterprise. Development costs are drastically decreased, since the same code can be deployed across form factors including traditional handhelds and tablets as well as wearable devices, voice-directed technology, vehicle mounted computers, and more.
Deployment and Performance Optimizing Tools
The second key component of the Honeywell Mobility Edge Platform is its deployment and performance optimizing features. Its rapid deployment suite is designed to get devices into service more quickly, and includes a set up wizard, secure provisioning, a settings editor, staging hub, and keypad creator. The suite enables you to validate apps and updates once, and then deploy them across all form factors. It also empowers you to customize the user experience for your workforce to help them do their jobs more easily and productively.
The platform’s productivity and performance optimizing tools include a scan wedge, voice wedge, wireless tether, device locator, and Zigbee communications support. To help get the most value out of your deployment, the platform also includes a machine learning, artificial intelligence-based engine that will optimize performance over time.
Security and Support
The Honeywell Mobility Edge Platform gives you peace of mind that your deployment is protected with robust Honeywell Cyber Security. The platform has been tested by white hat hackers for vulnerabilities and is monitored by Honeywell’s Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT), which rapidly responds to security issues.
The platform also includes Android support for four generations—from N to Q—on a single piece of hardware. In fact, industry partners that designed the platform are committed to hardware and software through 2025, helping to reduce risk and the total cost of ownership during the mobility deployment’s lifecycle.
