With the Internet having become a significant medium of communication and, more essentially, an effective mode of conducting business transactions cost-effectively, mobility has become an important issue that several IT companies are seeking to address at Gitex Dubai 2001.

A user’s primary need is to be able to access the services he wants, when he wants it, where he wants it, using which ever device is appropriate in a specific situation. As a result, there is an increasing demand for devices that enable easy connectivity while mobile and for mobility solutions as well.

Mobility solutions will extend wired access to client devices with wireless access. It will enable mobile-client devices and roaming, which will be supported by stationary devices. Mobility will require IT infrastructure to be re-engineered and made flexible enough to mobilise users to support their needs while roaming.

Mobility solutions include various components such as access devices (wired and wireless), network, applications and services, security aspects and reliable infrastructures. Fujitsu Siemens is one of the exhibitors that will be focusing on mobility and business-critical computing solutions in order to show visitors how the two have become the key drivers of the new era of eBusiness.

The company defends the combination stating that mobility and business-critical computing may be independent issues but they form complementary parts of end-to-end customer solutions that enable applications and services to be available to the end user anytime, anywhere on any device.

On display at the Fujitsu Siemens Computers stand will be client devices for both mobile and desktop units. The low-cost, high-performance AMILO notebook designed for mobile computing and notebooks for the professional user called LIFEBOOK will be displayed as well.

The company will also focus on technology solutions such as SMART cards and fingerprint devices that address the key issues of mobility: information security, access control and user authentication.

“Business-critical computing builds on the core competencies of Fujitsu Siemens Computers and guarantees extremely scalable, secure and always-on IT infrastructures for both current and future eBusiness environments,” says Anthony Peck, Marketing Director, MENA/ International. “The company’s strategy is also addressing the dramatically increasing demand for advanced solutions that support the mobility of users with anytime access to Internet services and applications — independent of location and device,” he added.
