Two Technologies Extends Data Communication Range, Security of Its Most Popular Hand Held Computers

Horsham, PA & Lindon, Utah, May 16, 2006- With its new JETT®"¢Wave Radio option, Two Technologies' ( now offers its most popular brands of hand held computers with the longest range wireless data communications solution in the industry. By taking advantage of the JETT"¢Pack™ peripheral connection system, the JETT"¢Wave Radio can be easily added to many of Two Technologies' hand held computers, including the JETT®"¢XL and JETT"¢eye™. With this module, Two Technologies' hand held computers can wirelessly communicate with equipment and other handheld computers at longer ranges -- up to several miles in line-of-sight applications and up to 3,000 feet in typical indoor/urban environments.

"With the JETT"¢Wave Radio option, our mobile hand held computers can be used to remotely monitor surveying instruments and other types of robotic machinery at long distances with freedom of movement," said Joan Rickards, Two Technologies, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "The JETT"¢Wave Radio also makes our hand helds ideal for monitoring equipment in hostile environments such as nuclear plants, while serving as reliable long-range communications devices that will survive even the most severe environments."

Incorporating a 900MHz spread spectrum radio supplied by MaxStream (, the JETT"¢Wave Radio supports various communication configurations, including point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and multi-drop networking topologies. With this module, Two Technologies' hand held computers can selectively communicate different sets of data to specific points with minimal configuration. And because the JETT"¢Wave Radio supports 65,000 network addresses on 10 hop sequences, multiple hand held computers can be configured to operate on different channels or to communicate with each other wirelessly within the security of a single network.

"With the JETT"¢Wave Radio, one hand held device can be configured on a network address to securely monitor specific locations or multiple hand helds can be configured together to communicate with various remote equipment," explains Rickards. "Incorporating government-standard 256-bit AES encryption and advanced interference immunity, the JETT"¢Wave Radio provides secure and reliable connections."

Two Technologies chose the MaxStream radio modem for the wireless communications capabilities of the JETT"¢Wave Radio because of its quality, high reliability and superior receiver sensitivity.

"MaxStream radio modems achieve up to eight times the range of competing RF solutions," said Damon Darais, MaxStream Vice President of Marketing. "They can extend the range of a hand held computer from 300 feet to up to a half-mile in business and residential environments."

The JETT"¢WAVE Radio is just one of many options that customers can choose to customize Two Technologies hand held computers. Using its new JETT"¢Pack hardware interface, Two Technologies can integrate many different peripherals including RFID, GPS and more into the JETT"¢Pack, which can then be used on a Pack Ready hand held computer.
