Qualcomm Inc., a provider of business-to-business wireless enterprise applications and services, announced its new Mobile Computing Platform 200 Series (MCP200). An addition to the Qualcomm Mobile Computing Platform product line originally launched in September 2006, the MCP200 is designed to deliver an expanded set of OmniVision Transportation Services, adding Wi-Fi, in-cab video training, Internet access and multimode capability.
The MCP200 Series will enable fleets to effectively transform their cabs into mobile operations centers, the company says. For example, drivers now can access training, targeted customer information and relevant back-office data such as payroll information from the cab.
“Carriers can take advantage of the MCP200’s power capabilities to grow their revenues and provide a higher level of customer service,” says Norm Ellis, vice president of transportation and logistics sales and service for Qualcomm Enterprise Services. The MCP200 will be available in summer 2009.
Qualcomm also announced that its first MCP, launched in 2006 as OmniVision, has reached 33,000 active units with nearly 300 carriers.
