SOTI MobiControl 14: Proven Mobility Management

Business mobility is complicated, and becoming more so. Within just a few years, we can expect to see billions of new, connected devices, ‘things’ and IoT endpoints. Market-leading companies are embracing this new technology to help reinvent their business. SOTI MobiControl delivers management and security for these new mobile devices, sensors and endpoints, as well as their applications and back-end systems. It takes mobility to endless possibilities, and frees your workforce to transform your business.

MOBILITY MANAGEMENT MADE EASY

SOTI MobiControl is an enterprise mobility management solution that secures and manages Apple® iOS, Google Android™, Microsoft Windows®, and Linux® devices, throughout their entire lifecycle, from deployment to retirement. It controls all aspects of business mobility — tracking physical assets, managing applications and content, as well as keeping devices and data safe and secure. SOTI is the proven leader for managing rugged, special-purpose devices used in key industries, such as: healthcare, transportation, logistics, retail and field services. It removes the complexity from managing a multi-OS, multi-vendor and multi-purpose business mobility program.

WHAT SOTI MOBICONTROL CAN DO

Rapid Deployment and Provisioning

Provision devices remotely using profiles and packages based on user role or geographic location. Use SOTI stage and third party solutions (Apple DEP, Android O zero-touch enrollment, Samsung KME, and Zebra StageNow) to simplify device deployment.

Multi-OS Capable

Secure and manage all of your mobile devices and intelligent IoT endpoints (iOS, Android, Windows and Linux) from a single, integrated user interface.

Application Management

Tight integrations with Apple VPP and Google Play delivers the right application to the right employee on the right device quickly and securely. IT staff use blacklists/whitelists to control what corporate apps are available.

Content Management

SOTI Hub and SOTI Surf containerize corporate files and web content. IT staff set data leakage prevention (DLP) rules and use LDAP integration to control who sees what files and websites, and what they are allowed to do with them on the mobile device.

Remote Support

Remote control/view devices on any HTML5-based web browser, including browsers on smartphones and tablets. SOTI’s remote control technology ensures remote controlling/viewing devices is possible even when internet/network connectivity is a challenge.

Device and Data Security

IT administrators prevent rogue applications and malware by controlling exactly what can or cannot be installed on a device. Authentication and password features protect mobile device assets, and encryption keeps corporate content private.

Enterprise Integration

SAML integration with leading identity providers improves the device enrollment experience for end users and secures corporate credentials. IT staff use LDAP to create policies based on corporate group membership. SOTI MobiControl’s REST API allows easy integration with strategic enterprise applications.

SOTI ONE Integration

Create an incident ticket from within SOTI MobiControl and automatically link the device to the ticket in SOTI Assist, improving accuracy and speed of ticket creation.

MC9200 Mobile Computer: Android in Manufacturing

The MC9200 is the next generation in the MC9000 Series, the industry’s gold standard for mobility in inventory and asset management in the most demanding environments — from the warehouse floor to the dock door. With over two and a half million sold, no other rugged mobile computer offers the same level of unsurpassed proven reliability. The MC9200 boasts the same unrivaled rugged feature set as its predecessor, the MC9190-G, offering:

Durable, Shock-Resistant Housing
The integrated one-piece gun handle is part of the housing, greatly increasing durability over snap-on handles. A Torque Cell design replaces the traditional clamshell construction — the two halves of the housing slide together and are connected with a series of 28 hooks and locks instead of a handful of plastic ‘flanges’ (known as bosses) and screws. The force of a drop is no longer concentrated on the bosses, instead dispersed throughout the 28 connection points, eliminating twisting and flexing in any one spot.

Durable Battery Design
A flat corrosion-proof battery connector replaces traditional pin-style connectors, where a single broken pin prevents operation. And since the connector is part of the battery instead of part of the device, you get a new connector every time you replace the battery.

Ready for the Cold
Use the MC9200 to streamline your cold chain operations. With a temperature rating of -4° F to 122° F/-20° C to 50° C; an IP64 sealing rating and an internal replaceable desiccant pack* that prevents condensation from forming inside the device, the MC9200 is ready for your refrigerators and temperature controlled loading dock.

Protection for Sensitive Electronics
Our innovative tuned external rubber bumpers are constructed of materials that significantly reduce the effects of shock during a drop. Sensitive electronics moved less than 6/1000ths of an inch in tests, approximately 40 times less than the ¼ inch movement common in clamshell housings. In addition, the circuit board is not attached to the housing with screws. Instead, it is held in place with floating rubber-wrapped magnesium frames. Since the entire electronic assembly “floats” inside the housing, it doesn’t bend when the unit is dropped.

Reliable Sealing
Our polycarbonate display is rated to a 4H hardness factor instead of the typical 3H for most touchscreens, making it more resistant to wear and tear. And an air gap between the touchscreen and the display further protects the display.

Ultra Strong Scanner Exit Window
Incredibly tough Corning® Gorilla® glass is virtually scratch and shatter proof, protecting one of the most business-critical features of the MC9200 — barcode scanning.

Zebra Technologies: Android in Manufacturing

Manufacturers are the unsung heroes of invention and innovation. Their ingenuity builds stronger economies in their organizations, their communities and around the world. We're helping manufacturers succeed with technology solutions that connect them to the real-time enterprise asset intelligence they need to shave off seconds, drive down defects and work more safely -- all so they can keep doing what will always stand them apart...Building Efficiency. Growing Economies.

The Challenge:

MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE QUALITY, REDUCE DOWNTIME AND IMPROVE TRACEABILITY

Every detail counts, from the moment a component arrives at a goods-in bay, to the moment a finished item is shipped. Mobile technologies are rapidly moving into every area of manufacturing, but it is in traceability, quality assurance and process compliance that mobile computers are making the most immediate impact.

Industry 4.0 is adding momentum, with machine-to-machine communication and increasing automation, driven by digital technologies. In this scenario, accurate data capture and real-time collaboration between teams become critical concerns.

With global competition and perpetual economic volatility, margins are under continuous pressure. Customers expect outstanding just-in-time service, while demanding rock-bottom prices. Every second of downtime saved, and every small efficiency gain, can quickly add up to significant competitive advantage.

The Solution:

USE ZEBRA FOR ANDROID TO IMPROVE DATA CAPTURE, CONNECT TEAMS AND TRACK ASSETS

Zebra for Android bridges the gap between people and machines in the era of automation. The global dominance of Android (the world’s most popular mobile operating system) means there is a shorter learning curve for users, because so many people are now familiar with the intuitive touch screen interface. It also means that users will be more willing and able to make full use of the apps and communication capabilities now available to them.

For example, the MC9200 mobile computer combines industrial-grade strength and resilience with the versatility and ease-of-use of Android. It’s tested to more than 2,000 tumbles, and has a scratch and shatter-proof scanner window, as well as a shock-resistant housing and added corner protection. Zebra for Android moves the familiar, consumer-style Android interface firmly into the demanding world of work.

Zebra’s Mobility Extensions (Mx) add an extra layer of security and control to Android, helping to ensure the security and integrity of data. And with the Zebra Mobility DNA software ecosystem, Zebra for Android devices can easily be integrated into your existing systems.
