Juniper Systems recently unveiled Cedar Tree Technologies, a new rugged handheld company. Based in Corvallis, Oregon, Cedar Tree brings ruggedness, affordability, and intuitive software to its customers—mainly consisting of mapping and field service professionals.

Cedar Tree’s new products—the CT7 tablet and CT4 handheld—run on the Google Android operating system, providing access to thousands of business and field-ready apps on the Google Play Store. Both devices can easily be customized by users via software. The CT7 tablet features a large and vibrant 7-inch display, while the CT4 handheld has a more compact design, with a smaller 4.3-inch display. Both devices provide useful features such as GPS and camera, as well as excellent durability and functionality—all for around the price of a smartphone. The CT7 and CT4 will be shipping within the next 30 days.

“By leveraging the wide array of apps and services available through the Android operating system, Cedar Tree Technologies offers users a complete rugged data collection solution out of the box,” said Rob Davis, Cedar Tree Technologies’ General Manager. “Add to that the fact that you can purchase one of these durable devices for about the same price as your smartphone, and it really makes it an easy decision.”

Juniper Systems’ CEO, Rob Campbell, said about the new company: “Cedar Tree Technologies builds upon Juniper’s product offering, providing customers with a broader range of choices. This additional product variety allows customers to find the best fit for their needs, whether they need maximum ruggedness from a Juniper Systems product, or whether they need a very durable product that runs on more consumer-like platforms, like Cedar Tree’s products.”
