Symbol MC9000-G Series Supports Stay-Linked RF/Wireless Terminal Software

eBusiness Solution Pros Inc. (eSP) announced that its Stay-Linked RF/wireless terminal solution now supports Symbol Technologies' new MC9000-G series, a ruggedized hand-held mobile computer for data collection in supply chain environments. Stay-Linked is a real-time enterprise mobility solution that reliably extends 5250/3270 and VT screen applications running on the IBM AS/400-iSeries (and other platforms) to wireless devices.

Although the MC9000-G ships with Wavelink terminal emulation software, this default "thick-client" software may not be sufficient for all installations, according to Patricia Converse, eSP's vice president, sales and marketing. Stay-Linked, she added, preserves productivity for wireless data capture users and IT staff with host-server-based session persistence and centralized management.

With Stay-Linked, a "thin-client" software, all terminal emulation and client device/session control runs natively on the application host platform for optimum availability and productivity. When disruptions in wireless-device access occur, Stay-Linked keeps user scanning sessions alive on the host. As soon as wireless access is restored, users are automatically returned to their original wireless session, exactly where they were immediately prior to the disruption.

Stay-Linked is available from eSP-authorized resellers and marketed through a worldwide channel. Stay-Linked is licensed according to the maximum number of concurrently active user sessions required; the competitively priced thin-client licenses are not fixed to a specific device, and there is no limit to configured users. Stay-Linked installs quickly on host systems and is available, fully functional, on a 30-day free-trial basis.
