The Intermec CN50 is the only 3.75G wireless mobile computer that combines a small and lightweight form factor with a rugged design to deliver the most advanced, high performance voice and data communication solution specifically designed for the highly mobile field worker.

With the class leading capabilities of the CN50 in their mobile workers’ hands, enterprises can improve their business processes, expand their service offerings and reduce the cost and complexity of a field mobility solution.

As the first device in the industry to offer a 3.75G wireless WAN Flexible Network™ Radio, the CN50 allows enterprises to finally standardize on a single hardware platform that can be configured for either CDMA or UMTS wireless networks. This gives enterprises the flexibility to choose the network that provides the best geographic coverage and the lowest cost.

With a single hardware solution to deploy, enterprises can simplify application development, lessen verification complexity, reduce deployment costs, and dramatically lower overall cost-of-ownership. As your business needs change or coverage options evolve, the Flexible Network Radio can be re-provisioned to a different carrier network.

The CN50 has the latest 3.75G wireless WAN radio to deliver the fastest data and voice communications available on both CDMA and UMTS wireless networks. With high speed uplink packet access (HSUPA) technology, the CN50 provides fast and reliable data connectivity for uploading large documents, real-time images or synchronization with your enterprise data base. Compared with previous 2.5G radio technology, the CN50 provides improved productivity today, and allows enterprises to realize future benefits as the network capabilities continue to improve.

The CN50 is built on a unique multi-processor architecture with dedicated ARM and DSP processors to deliver robust application processing with nearly instantaneous response, all at the lowest levels of power consumption. The extended-life battery provides ample power to drive consistent, full-featured functionality without compromise to the compact and lightweight design.

The EA11 imager provides a familiar “laser-like” aimer and scanning performance that is optimized for scan intensive applications, including small or damaged barcodes. The EA21 imager provides great performance for 1D/2D barcodes as well as Intermec document imaging.

The CN50 with EA21 imager, features an optional imaging application called Intermec Enhanced Mobile Document Imaging (eMDI) which gives mobile workers a fast and reliable way to convert paper documents into electronic files. eMDI helps streamline back office operations and improves cash flow by reducing time-to-payment for services rendered because delivery confirmations can be imaged in the field and sent wirelessly to the home office. Customer service and other staff gain real-time access to document images, via the enterprise systems, which can be used to answer customer queries, issue invoices, and update records.

The integrated digital compass provides a real-time indication of directional heading to enhance the functionality of the GPS radio. By improving the accuracy of the turn-by-turn directions, mobile workers are able to deliver better customer service and improve on-time delivery.

A built-in accelerometer allows the CN50 to rotate the display based on the orientation of the device, improving worker efficiency and the user experience during signature capture or similar operations. A bright 3.5” QVGA display provides exceptional viewing indoors and outside.

The CN50 features a Bluetooth® v2.1 EDR radio which provides secure wireless connectivity to headsets, Intermec mobile printers and other Bluetooth compatible devices for simple and convenient connectivity. The Wi-Fi certified 802.11 radio enables fast and secure voice communications or end-of-day synchronization with your enterprise network.

With industry-leading cell phone technology at its core, the small and lightweight CN50 bridges the gap between a mobile computer and a traditional cell phone to provide high-quality voice communications without the expense of deploying and maintaining a separate device.

The no compromise design includes both a high performance 3 MP color camera with auto-focus and flash, and a dedicated area imager for responsive 1D and 2D barcode reading.

The industry standard platform in the CN50 includes either Microsoft® Windows Mobile 6.1 or Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 which enables the device to integrate quickly and easily with existing systems and provides familiar operation for end users. These two operating system options provide integrated support for Systems Center Mobile Device Manager (SCMDM), allowing enterprise IT Managers to securely provision, configure, and deploy application software, device settings, and policies for populations of CN50 devices from the convenience of their management consoles.

Developers can access a comprehensive software toolkit through the Intermec Developer Library to simplify application development and shorten time to deployment.

Intermec SmartSystems™ software simplifies remote device management, by automatic staging, applying periodic system and software updates, as well as configuration changes, to keep on-going system maintenance costs low, and your CN50s performing in top condition.

The Intermec CN50 mobile computer is designed specifically for on-the-go field mobility customer service operations that need to be completed faster using only a single device that combines robust application processing, automated barcode data scanning and document capture, digital camera functionality, and 3G wireless WAN voice and data communication in a rugged compact package necessary to achieve better customer service and bottom line results, now and in the future.
