The next generation of its Mobile Computing Platform series, the MCP110, has been announced by Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM).
MCP110 is designed to optimize company operations while supporting all current MCP100 series applications. It also offers several new capabilities, including a PDF viewer with optional in-cab printer that allow drivers to print documents right from the cab, making it easy to receive instructions from the home office.
“The MCP110 platform delivers new features that add value to transportation company operations,” said Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. “The addition of this platform to Qualcomm’s product portfolio further expands our ability to deliver industry-leading applications and services to a wide spectrum of fleets.”
On-board driver tutorials are available to assist in the usage of MCP110 applications. The driver interface unit offers a high-resolution display with vibrant colors, the company said. The MCP110, which will be available this fall, uses terrestrial communication with the option to upgrade to terrestrial plus WiFi communications.
With WiFi enabled, customers have access to static content on both the Internet and web-based email programs, as well as the ability to scan documents over the WiFi network without paying a per page charge. In addition, customers can utilize Qualcomm’s Content Delivery Service, which allows audio messages to be broadcast to the fleet without an additional charge.
