Product Update: Janam and Stay-Linked Join Forces in Rugged Gun Market

Janam's new XG100 rugged gun-shaped mobile computer to ship as Stay-Linked Ready™ with pre-loaded thin-client software

Woodbury, NY - January 13, 2009 - Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, today announced that it intends to certify its newly-announced XG100 Series rugged, gun-shaped, mobile computer as “Stay-Linked Ready™”, meaning that Janam’s XG100 Series devices will ship from the factory with the thin-client component of the Stay-Linked software solution pre-loaded.

With its low center of gravity, sleek form factor, wide keypad area, super-tough construction and robust Summit 802.11b/g WLAN radio, Janam’s XG100 Series is optimized for environments where rugged, gun-shaped mobile computers are deployed. Many of these environments are warehouses, factories and distribution centers where formerly wired, legacy, terminal emulation programs are now running over the air via WLAN, creating a new set of challenges related to dropped sessions, lost data packets, poor connections, inadequate security and lack of device management. By utilizing stable, host-based terminal emulation sessions that are managed by Stay-Linked’s proven server software and remotely accessed using Stay-Linked’s thin-client software running on Janam’s XG100, mobile workers will now have wireless access to legacy applications with no downtime, disruption or loss of productivity.

“We are very pleased to offer a Stay-Linked Ready™ solution with the XG100 Series,” said Harry B. Lerner, CEO of Janam. “The combination of Stay-Linked’s powerful thin-client architecture and device management capability with Janam’s user-optimized rugged gun product will give our customers unprecedented remote access to 5250, 3270 and VT host-based screen applications that are mission-critical to their operations, all at a price point they cannot ignore.”

Janam represents fresh thinking in the rugged mobile computing space, and the new XG100 Series clearly comes from a team that understands the needs of today’s customer,” said David Griffith, President of Stay-Linked. “We are excited by how easy and cost-effective it will be for customers to replace legacy hardware and software solutions with Janam’s rugged mobile computers running Stay-Linked thin-client software.”

The XG100 Series from Janam is available for beta testing immediately and scheduled for full release to production at the end of Q1.
