Janam Technologies LLC, a provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly, today announced a strategic alliance with Summit Data Communications, the leading provider of wireless LAN radio modules and cards for business-critical mobile devices. Summit's embedded Wi-Fi solutions enable Janam's mobile devices to establish secure and reliable wireless network connections in the most challenging operating environments.

"Janam is committed to delivering superior quality and performance to customers with mission-critical operations, and wireless LAN functionality is a vital component of most data capture solutions," said Harry B. Lerner, CEO of Janam. "Summit's Wi-Fi solutions are an ideal fit with our product requirements because they offer reliable wireless network connectivity, excellent security and superb Wi-Fi administration."

A key differentiator for Summit solutions is support for Cisco Compatible Extensions, or CCX.

Wi-Fi security, known as the Enterprise version of Wi-Fi Protected Access, or WPA2-Enterprise.

"With Summit Wi-Fi inside, Janam computers support WPA2-Enterprise with a broad range of options, including all popular authentication types," said Ron Seide, Summit's president.
