RAM Mounts for Mountain/Trail Biking

There are so many reasons for people to start biking as a hobby or a form of exercise. First of all, it’s one of the most eco-friendly ways to commute. Biking is also a great way to get a workout in. The average person will burn between 450 to 750 calories per hour cycling. The number of calories depends on your weight, speed and time spent biking.

Biking is also a great way to connect with nature. A lot of bike trails such as Magnetic Island in Queensland and trails in Tasmania, offer immaculate views and challenging terrains.

Strike offers RAM mobile phone mounting options that are specially made for biking. These mounts can help give an elevated experience for bikers. You can easily use your navigation apps, take videos of the trail and even listen to some music or your podcast to complete the experience.

The RAM EZ-ON/OFF™ Bicycle Mount w/ X-Grip® Universal Cradle is perfect for your average size phones. It offers a secure grip to ensure the safety of your device even on bumpy trails. The X-Grip® includes a device tether recommended for outdoor applications.

For larger devices like phablets or small tablets, you can opt for the RAM EZ-ON/OFF™ Bicycle Mount w/ X-Grip® Large Phone Cradle. This phone holder is made of high strength composite but doesn’t add weight to the mount. You can adjust it to the perfect viewing angle for a comfortable and convenient biking experience.

For bases, we have the RAM EZ-ON/OFF™ Bicycle Mount with Strap Base. The press on the diamond adapter of the EZ-ON/OFF™ system allows users to easily take their phone cradles in and out of the base. This base is also adjustable to achieve the best angle for use.

    Improve Productivity in Rural Sites

    Mobile devices serve a lot of purposes that contribute to the overall productivity of companies. Aside from traditional communication such as calls and texts, users may also use phones and tablets for conferencing, working on documents remotely, or storing and transferring data.

    Last year, when companies were pushed to go for a more flexible working set-up, the use of mobile devices has been highlighted even more. Connectivity is a vital asset for businesses in today’s competitive market. That is why it is important to make sure the devices are online, especially in crucial moments.

    Companies that have sites in rural areas have been the pioneers of remote work. However, during the work from home setup brought about by the pandemic, more businesses have followed suit.

    The most common problem when it comes to working in rural sites is a poor connection. Employees can lose valuable hours of work when offline and can affect the business negatively. Access to real-time data such as inventory availability can mean winning or losing clients.

    Strike offers a variety of antenna and patch lead solutions that can help connectivity problems.

    What’s New: The Latest Nokia XR20 and PTT Solutions

    Posted on Nov 5, 2021

    Nokia's Newest Flagship – Nokia XR20

    Nokia recently released their latest rugged device that's meant for the long run with the Nokia XR20. Nokia went above and beyond with designing a device that's built to last. Its design is sleek and not the typical rugged device that's bulky. The Nokia XR20 comfortably fits your hands and pockets. For a device made for industries with harsh conditions and professionals working in the field, the Nokia XR20 is equipped with features that are also suitable for lifestyle enjoyment. Nokia XR20's cameras can take sharp photos, great for capturing memories and documentation of important materials. Plus, Nokia also designed the device with OZO Playback for consumers to enjoy the best of audio entertainment.

    Overall, the Nokia XR20 will be a tough contender in the rugged device market. It has a comfortable design, military-grade durability, and is one of the toughest screens from Nokia yet. And with its Android 11 Operating System, businesses can maximise the use of the device for work applications.

    Push to Talk Services: Then and Now

    Motorola has been a leading provider of PTT devices for the past few years. Their two-way radios and rugged devices have played a great contribution in the field of various industries.

    The company's acquisition of the Kodiak Network became the talk of the town for the mission-critical market a few years back in 2017. Motorola Solutions already had leverage when it came to mission- critical communication solutions. Acquiring Kodiak Networks further strengthened their hold in the market, as the company was a known cloud-based PTT solution platform. Kodiak back then also added a complementary PTToC solution for Motorola's Wave PTT device. This enabled WAVE to connect between smartphones, radios, and computers through wireless and broadband. Up to date, Motorola still services global platforms which use technology from Kodiak Networks.

    Technology is moving fast, and businesses can now get the same functionality as a two-way radio on their Android or Apple device with just an application. Two-way radios and PTT devices had their golden age, but with today's smartphones, most workers can do the same thing and more on their devices. It has led to the industry's transition from PTT to Push to Talk Over Cellular web-based applications.

    One factor that's crucial for industries is real-time communication. Aside from Motorola, companies like Telstra provide services that allow constant communication among teams with a wider reach. Back then, two-way radios only had coverage for up to a few kilometers.

    Why are companies making the switch with web-based applications? Some of Telstra's Push to Talk Services Key Features are one-touch calling, advanced multimedia sharing, flexible device compatibility, and carrier-integrated solutions.

    What will your next move be for your business?
