    Unitech Electronics Co., Ltd., a leading global manufacturer of automatic identification and data collection (AIDC) products, today announced that is has forged a strategic alliance with Summit Data Communications, which provides embedded Wi-FiR solutions for business-critical mobile devices. The partnership ensures that enterprise-class Unitech mobile computers will include the latest Summit features, including support for Cisco Compatible Extensions, or CCX.

    “Having market-leading Wi-Fi capabilities is important in the competitive AIDC market,” said Howard Weng, Director of Product Management at Unitech. “That’s why many Unitech mobile devices already feature Summit technology. Thanks to our new strategic alliance with Summit, we will receive all key Summit 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 for enhanced security, mobility, quality of service, and network management. This quarter, Unitech plans to have several devices certified for CCX V4.

    “Sales of Unitech mobile computers are growing because the devices deliver value to businesses of all sizes and types,” said Weng. “Innovation increases value. By focusing on Wi-Fi technology, Summit delivers innovation that we can leverage in our devices.”

    In addition to supporting Cisco Wi-Fi innovations, Summit solutions support all key Wi-Fi industry standards, including the top security standard, known as the Enterprise version of Wi-Fi Protected Access 2R, or WPA2-EnterpriseR. With Summit Wi-Fi, Unitech computers meet the retail industry security standard known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
