San Jose Police Department Selects New Intermec CN3 Rugged Mobile Computers for Patrol Officers

EVERETT, Wash. - The City of San Jose, Calif. selected CN3 mobile computers from Intermec Inc. (NYSE:IN) for its police department as part of the city's Electronic Citation Project. The project is being developed in partnership with Intermec Honours Program partners 3i Infotech Inc., MobileFrame LLC, and Cogent Systems (Nasdaq: COGT).

Equipped with a magnetic strip reader, the CN3 scans drivers' licenses and displays the information on the screen. Drivers can sign the ticket on the screen or officers can make a quick print out for them to sign. The citation information is stored on the CN3 and downloaded into the court system's database.

The San Jose Electronic Citation Project has a bundled solution created by 3i Infotech and MobileFrame. MobileFrame's Configurable Mobile Application software has a point-and-click graphical user interface, allowing users to create their own mobile applications. 3i Infotech provided integration of the CN3 with MobileFrame's software and created the backend software for the system.

The CN3 is partnered with Cogent's BlueCheck fingerprint reader, a mobile tool designed for use in the field.

"MobileFrame's eCitation solution will dramatically decrease the number of citation errors and avoid the need to enter data into two systems. 3i Infotech's technology will also provide us with the ability to access citation data during critical investigations," said San Jose police chief Robert Davis. "The Intermec CN3 system turned this around for us. We will be able to provide our patrol officers with the tools they need to do their jobs well, and ensure our citizens an accurate and fiscally responsible system."

With integrated GPS and with a Bluetooth headset, the CN3 enables onscreen and hands-free turn-by-turn voice navigation.

With cellular built-in capabilities and Cisco Compatible WiFi connectivity, users can be connected with voice and data anywhere. Users also have the ability to choose between GSM/EDGE and CDMA/EV-DO. And the choice between area imager and 1.3 megapixel camera means CN3 users can scan and decode any barcode or capture still images, such as signatures or video images that can be stored for later use or sent anywhere.
