2 Who is 1 - Source Electronics Moores Law RFID: The costs, expense and practicality of deploying How Do You Deploy Mobile Computing Solutions for SMBs? Hardware Solutions that make Bottom-Line Sense The Question: Future of Wireless Mobile Computing Total Cost of Ownership models

3 We are a certified Value Added Solutions Provider of the worlds leading manufacturers including Janam Technologies and Motorola. Our Mission: Continue in our quest to develop innovative services and applications that provide bottom-line value for our customers that match our world class suite of devices. From device deployment, servicing and application development, with thousands of units on the streets we know what our customers needs. 1-Source Electronics Who we are and what we do?

4 Moores Law Q: Why is it that hardware solutions are outpacing software applications? A: Software engineers have not been able to keep up with the steady growth of microprocessor technology. Motorola end of lifes Palm operating system and Windows 5.0 becomes the worlds dominant mobile computing software. This was done in an attempt to bridge the software and hardware gap.

5 Reliable Hardware and Stable OS The Palm operating system gets a second chance. In 2007, Janam Technologies signed a five-year contract with Palm. The Palm operating system allows customers to reduce true total cost of ownership on devices that will stand the test of time. By keeping the Palm operating system alive and well, large companies that invested heavily in the operating system were able to protect their investment, and at the same time, they were able to upgrade their hardware base without rewriting new software.

6 RFID is the best example of hardware outpacing software applications! RFID: Why its still not practical for SMBs!

9 The Future of Wireless Mobile Computing Technology will change rapidly –Can your hardware partner keep up? –Can your software partner keep up –Do they have a global & capable support team Both Technical Support and Break/Fix –Are they proven and widely installed? –Can they scale their operations? –Can they offer you more than just an PDA product?

10 Janam XP30 Janam XP20 MC70 MC35 MC9090 Hardware options Wired/wireless networking Motorolas –WS2000 –WS5100 –RFS7000 –AP-5131 –AP-5181 Covered Hardware

11 How Do You Deploy Mobile Computing Solutions for SMBs? Identify your or your partners long and short term goals for wireless and enterprise development. Establish a budget for the project and ensure your service provider will keep to that budget. Have the appropriate buy-in across the organization, Upper Management, Operation and IT. Key business decision makers must buy in to the program efficacy and be willing to invest in the $$$ for infrastructure. Overruns and over budget will kill a program, your project and team of developers are critical.

12 Motorola WLAN Products WS2000 –delivers simplified and cost-effective wired and wireless networking, significantly reducing upfront and ongoing networking costs. WS5100 –delivers an unprecedented level of technology simplicity, operational efficiency and employee productivity, while providing a foundation for the next generation of mobile applications and brings a new level of cost-efficiency to the mixed RF environment. RFS7000 –provides robust, highly scalable support for seamless enterprise mobility. AP-5131 & AP-5181 –offers the flexibility to connect securely to remote corporate private networks, the Internet and local network resources with the speed and reliability to support the most demanding applications, including real-time video and voice.

13 Motorola LAN Planner Key Functionality Five Key LAN Planner Functions: 1.Adapt the building model to make it RF Intelligent and classify user regions by application 2.Place Equipment 3.Simulate Wi-Fi Network Performance 4.Measure and Validate Deployed Network 5.Optimize and Fine Tune Network Plan Auditorium with 50 users who require basic Internet access Glass windows at entrance cause signal to reach outside the facility into the Visitor parking area Additional access point needed to cover southeast wing of building Legend: Green = average throughput Yellow = good throughput Red = high throughput

14 The Future of Wireless Mobile Computing Eventually the Palm operating system, as well as the Windows operating system will be replaced by open source Unix based systems that allow software writers much more flexibility. Wireless connectivity will be a hybrid between campus Wi-Fi solutions, and Wi-Max, which will start to be implemented on a large scale. Systems like Motorolas MSP software will become more efficient. There is no one solution, we are in a mixed marketplace and device companies like Janam that understand TCO combined with service and application developers are the solution to cost effective deployments to SMBs.

15 What is MSP 2.X? The Mobility Services Platform (MSP) is a highly scalable hardware and software solution that provides a single point of control for managing mobile devices, mobile applications, and wireless infrastructure elements. With full management of fault, configuration, accounting, performance and security support, MSPs single point of control puts the power at your fingertips to quickly and easily: Deploy mobile devices, right out of the box, complete with the right software Manage the software on all your mobile devices automatically and remotely update applications, software and firmware.
