xMax is an end-to-end Internet Protocol (IP) network so you can use any application and any WiFi enabled device on it. And when we say “any device” we mean any smart phone, tablet, or laptop affiliated with any cellular carrier including AT&T, Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint or any of the dozens of smaller cellular providers.
It also means that data gathered by task-specific devices and their associated applications such as biometric scanners, license plate readers, video recorders, rugged mobile devices, infrastructure sensors and mobile point of sale devices can all be sent over your xMax private mobile wireless network.
This is important for a number of reasons. First, many other private systems require proprietary end user devices that can be very expensive to buy, manage and repair. In some cases, these devices still use a walkie-talkie form factor with small, low resolution screens that simply don’t work well for complex images or video. In addition, these networks often require hardware modifications to off-the-shelf devices if you want to use them for data, which increases your costs even more.
The end-to-end IP infrastructure of xMax delivers a network that is inherently “future-proof,” supports your organization’s BYOD policy, and allows you to utilize low-cost consumer devices with large, color-rich, high-definition screens for more precise data communications. Plus, these devices can interwork with more traditional radio systems such as P25 through a simple gateway.
In addition, xMax works perfectly with your chosen applications so there is little to no downtime associated with learning new processes or interfaces. Your teams use what they are familiar with to keep productivity high and costs as low as possible.
