Rugged mobile technology can help coordinate utility team activities from the field to the office. Tasks like reading field meters, testing transmission equipment, and creating infrastructure inventories can all be streamlined with mobile applications. Rugged technology can also withstand harsh environments that utility workers are subject to. This includes extreme temperatures, rain, drops, and vibrations. Workers can count on the technology to provide them with access to the data resources that are necessary to do their job and decrease technology downtime with less occurrences of malfunctions or damage.

Typically, you’ll find handheld computers used for meter reading and inventory management; while laptops and tablets are used for other mobile and field-use applications that require an on-the-go office experience. Often laptops or tablets are mounted in the vehicles for driver convenience and equipment tracking. Utility companies will use integrated GPS receivers, as well as mobile broadband wireless cards for data communication.
