Wavelink and Casio Announce Partnership

SALT LAKE CITY – March 20, 2012 – Enterprise mobility management provider, Wavelink Corporation , today announced a partnership with Casio to provide their Terminal Emulation (TE) software for the Casio DT-X8 rugged hand-held terminal.

Through this partnership, new Casio DT-X8 customers can quickly deploy Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE) across their enterprise. Wavelink Avalanche will also be an approved option which can be purchased and loaded separately as required. Existing DT-X8 customers will also be able to retrospectively download the mobility software onto their device.

John Martin, Director of Sales EMEA at Wavelink explains "Managing a mobile device environment across an enterprise is an extremely challenging job. This partnership simplifies the deployment and management of that environment with Avalanche, while also giving Casio DT-X8 customers the most widely used TE platform on the market.”

Guy Boxall, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Casio explains “This partnership further supports Casio’s growth within the mobility sector. Having Wavelink’s mobility software operating on the ultra-rugged DT-X8 provides faster and very efficient product integration for our customers.”

The ultra-rugged DT-X8 hand-held terminal was introduced by Casio in 2011, and is proving to be very successful. It is particularly ideal for use in very tough applications where the rugged design is paramount; having an IP67 rating (total water submersion), drop tested to 3 metres and a battery life of up to 25 hours is a key benefit to the user.

There are some clear benefits from using Wavelink software on the Casio DT-X8:

  • Wavelink Terminal Emulation (TE) is the market leader with over 4 million clients installed. TE is a complete environment, available to every device running Wavelink TE at no additional cost. The environment includes Session Persistence, Screen Reformatter, and high level of customization with settings and configuration options, and automation of data entry using scripting tools.

The optional Wavelink software includes:

  • Wavelink Avalanche enables remote hands-free setup and management of hand-held devices from the initial stages of provisioning, all phases of mobile computer use, returning devices into the population from service, repair or alternative use, and into retirement.
  • Wavelink Industrial Browser allows customers to access traditional host-based apps and web-based apps with one software deliverable. The Industrial Browser offers features to integrate scanning, security, speech and security for workers using web-based apps.
