OTTAWA, Oct. 4 /CNW/ - GTEC Week, Booth No. 211 -- Route1(TM) (TSX-V:ROI), an innovator in wireless remote computing, today will show off its groundbreaking Mobi Solution at GTEC Week 2005, an event which is expected to attract more than 7,000 public sector IT professionals from Canada and delegates from at least 34 countries. The event will feature speakers and up to 600 exhibits and demos of solutions for e-government. The Mobi Solution is a mobile thin-client that utilizes all of the existing wireless and mobile network infrastructures available today: data cellular, WiFi, and LAN -- to give government employees seamless and secure control of their desktop. The solution comes pre-configured with all the functionality and essential security requirements that allow users to remotely operate their office applications, but unlike existing remote access solutions, all applications and data with the Mobi Solution remain safely behind the IT firewall. At a time when it seems work is no longer a place, but simply what we do, Route1's solution squarely addresses the needs of government staff and departmental requirements driven by: privacy, data security, operational continuity, and network and application integrity. "The solution from Route1 directly addresses the risk, cost and compliance concerns that many large enterprises have today," said Paul Wing, former VP Risk Management & CISO, Great West Life. "Route1 manages and takes away a lot of the risk by providing a secure platform that allows the end-user computing workforce and customers to link directly to centralized, consistent data processing resources knowing that only authorized persons are connected and that the devices are able to talk to each other." The Mobi Solution consists of the MobiBook PRO device that is based on hardware from Psion Teklogix, a 2.4 lbs. full-featured, solid-state, semi-rugged handheld computer with an Intel XScale processor running Microsoft Windows CE.NET 4.2. The system includes a resistive touch screen for pen navigation and 58-key touch-type keyboard. It comes with an AC adapter and can run for up to 10 hours on battery. Internet connectivity is provided via wired Ethernet, Wi-Fi (802.11b), GSM/GPRS/EDGE or CDMA 1xRTT (an optional serial modem is also available) and is easily upgradeable to new high-speed wireless networks, such as WiMAX, as they become available. The system comes configured with the MobiRemote(TM) and MobiHost(TM) applications that manage and integrate all the necessary connections and session security using 256-bit AES encryption, which is based on RSA KEON and RSA BSAFE technologies, through Route1's MobiNET service. "The key component of the Mobi Solution is MobiNET, which is a new paradigm for delivering remoting services as systems inside the firewall are allowed to follow users," said Andrew White, CEO, Route1. "The service is developed around our unique workSecure(TM) technology and Seamless Workspace(TM) architecture, which keeps users persistently connected, safely switching between networks while managing secure sessions even in the middle of a document edit." The MobiBook PRO is available directly from Route1 or through MobiAlliance channel partners. It carries an SRP of $1995 CDN along with an annual subscription of $240 to the MobiNET service.
