    Taipei, Taiwan, April 27, 2010 – Unitech electronics co., ltd. (Taiwan Over-the-Counter market, code 3652), a worldwide leader in the automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) industry, today announced that five of its rugged mobile computers have been certified as compliant with Cisco Compatible Extensions, or CCX. All five devices use CCX-certified Wi-Fi solutions from Summit Data Communications.
     
    “Having market-leading Wi-Fi capabilities is important in the competitive AIDC market,” said Howard Weng, product manager of the Unitech mobile computer line. “Our strategic alliance with Summit enables our devices to leverage the latest Summit solutions and their technological innovations, including CCX support.”
     
    All Summit Wi-Fi solutions are certified for Version 4 of CCX, the highest level of Cisco compatibility for business-critical mobile devices. CCX V4 certification signifies not just interoperability with enterprise Wi-Fi infrastructure products from Cisco but also support for Cisco Wi-Fi innovations in areas such as security, mobility, quality of service, and network management.
     
    “In the Wi-Fi world, today’s Cisco innovations often are tomorrow’s standards,” said Chris Bolinger, Summit’s VP of Business Development. “A Wi-Fi standard is valuable only if a broad set of devices support that standard. As more and more client devices achieve CCX certification, the Cisco innovations in CCX can be transitioned to standards, and that improves Wi-Fi for everybody.”
     
    CCX includes the top Wi-Fi industry standard for security, known as the Enterprise version of Wi-Fi Protected Access 2®, or WPA2-Enterprise®. With Summit Wi-Fi inside, Unitech computers meet the retail industry security standard known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
     
    The five Unitech devices that have earned a CCX V4 certification are:
    ·         PA968 rugged industrial PDA
    ·         RH767 rugged UHF industrial PDA
    ·         HT680 rugged handheld terminal
    ·         PA800 ultra-rugged industrial PDA (Coming soon)
    ·         PA600 Standard (624MHz) industrial PDA
