Staying Connected But Remote

Product: Padcom 8100 remote access router
Company: Padcom Inc.

For retail merchants with more than one location, including back office operations, it's important to stay connected and communicating information such as current pricing, inventory and customer information all the time.

Padcom Inc., a provider of mobile virtual network solutions, helps businesses overcome gaps in wireless data communication by connecting locations, employees and devices, with its 8100 remote access router.

The Padcom 8100 is a wireless hardware platform that creates secure wireless connections. The company says its solution is more affordable and efficient than traditional "wire line" or satellite connections.

With a retail business, for instance, customers can create seamless two-way connections between the home office and any POS terminal and communicate information at speeds equivalent to a wired connection broadband line, but with about a third of the access fees.

>From POS terminals to laptops and PDAs, the 8100 keeps devices in sync. Merchant benefits include reducing customer wait times, increasing throughput to speed up credit card verifications, and tracking customer, sales and inventory information no matter where terminals are located.

The 8100 supports the following networks:

CDPD; GPRS; EDGE; CDMA 1xRTT; EVDO; iDEN; Wireless LAN - 802.11a/b/g; Dataradio DMP; Motorola RD-LAP; M/A-COM EDACS; M/A-COM OpenSky; and satellite.

Some of its standard components include: 8100 PC Motherboard; two type II PC card slots; integrated GPS capability; two external RS-232 serial ports; two USB external ports; three independent 10/100 Mbits/s ethernet ports; Windows-embedded XP operating system; imbedded wireless LAN - 802.11a/b/g.

Padcom holds three mobile data patents and has other U.S. and international patents pending.
