Verizon Wireless and Kyocera Wireless have joined forces to bring efficient mobile computing and communications to business customers, including the U.S. Navy and GE’s Consumer and Industrial Appliance Division. Using Kyocera’s suite of data solutions that are implemented over Verizon Wireless’ EV-DO wireless broadband network, business customers can increase customer and employee satisfaction while lowering operating costs and increasing return on investment.
Verizon Wireless and Kyocera congratulate the U.S. Navy and GE Consumer and Industrial Appliance Division for winning recent A-List awards, announced in September at the CTIA Wireless I.T. & Entertainment 2006 in Los Angeles. Nominees were judged on creativity, innovation, overall business impact and quantifiable return on investment (ROI).
“Kyocera’s suite of data solutions leverage the inherent advantages of CDMA 3G networks to make seamless communications and true mobility a reality for a wide range of organizations,” said Tom Maguire, vice president of global marketing at Kyocera Wireless. “The U.S. Navy and GE are two powerful examples of how smart investments in mobile technology can improve overall efficiency, increase return on investment, lower operating expenses, and raise customer and employee satisfaction.”
“The freedom of true mobility to work efficiently is critical for large enterprises and small to medium-sized businesses,” said Cindy Patterson, vice president enterprise data sales for Verizon Wireless. “Our combined efforts with Kyocera, as highlighted with our deployments with the U.S. Navy and GE, are helping businesses lead the way in deploying effective wireless data technologies to improve their operations.”
With more than 700,000 users, the Navy Marine Corps Intranet is the world’s largest and most secure private network which provides unique challenges to offering secure access for truly mobile communications and computing. Working with Verizon Wireless and Kyocera, the U.S. Navy equipped personnel with Dell laptops, Kyocera KPC650 1xEV-DO PC Cards that connect to the Verizon Wireless broadband network and a Juniper VPN for security, so they now have a secure and efficient mobile alternative to get their work done while on the road.
GE’s Consumer and Industrial Appliance Division
GE Consumer and Industrial implemented a sophisticated fleet management solution designed by ServicePower that uses the Kyocera 200 Module to instantly locate vehicles over the Verizon Wireless network. It integrates award-winning technology from a team of industry leading providers, including GE Security, CalAmp, Panasonic, Intel and Verizon Wireless. The solution enables faster, more responsive scheduling of service appointments, better on- time delivery and first time fix rates, and improved communication between field service technicians and dispatchers to reduce the need for more than one visit to repair appliances or units.
