Laird Summit 40 radio modules support Android

Laird Technologies has released Android 2.3 Gingerbread support for its Summit 40 Series radio modules, that support dual-band 802.11n (802.11a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1.

“Business-critical mobile devices such as handheld mobile computers are beginning to run Android instead of Windows Embedded Handheld or Windows Embedded Compact,” said Laird Technologies Product Director Chris Bolinger. “40 Series radio modules now offer the same proven enterprise-grade features on both Windows and Android.”

Those enterprise-grade features include secure, reliable connectivity in both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, fast roaming from one access point to another, certified support for Version 4 of Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX), and easy configuration and management using the Summit Client Utility (SCU), trusted on more than one million mobile devices worldwide.

With 40 Series radio modules, SCU also supports configuration and management of Bluetooth profiles, giving administrators a single interface for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

40 Series radio module software is available for Android 2.3 Gingerbread, Linux kernel version 2.6.37, Windows Embedded Handheld 6 and 7, and Windows Embedded Compact 6 and 7. The software and a full array of technical support services are included with every 40 Series module at no additional charge.
