Bittium exhibits renewed Bittium Tough Mobile™ smartphone and Bittium Secure Suite™ device management and encryption software at British APCO exhibition

Oulu, Finland, March 21, 2017 – Bittium exhibits its innovative products and mobile security solutions at the British APCO exhibition to be held in Telford, United Kingdom, March 21 – 22. The event is directed at authorities and one of the main themes of the event is UK’s transition starting in the year 2018 from TETRA-based call and messaging applications to the Emergency Services Network (ESN), where LTE broadband solutions will be used for the communications of police, fire and ambulance services.

At the event Bittium will demonstrate the functionalities of the newly launched Confidential classification level version of Bittium Tough Mobile LTE smartphone together with the related Bittium Secure Suite device management and encryption software. Bittium will also showcase a selection of different special accessories and software solutions for Bittium Tough Mobile that have been designed for demanding police and military use cases.

Bittium Tough Mobile’s unique dual-boot functionality for the Confidential classification level makes it possible to operate the device with two completely separate operating systems: Public and Confidential. The operating system classified as Public is meant for personal communications and the operating system classified as Confidential is completely isolated and hardened for secure authority and information security use. Bittium Tough Mobile’s information security solutions are based on the close integration of the device’s unique hardware solutions together with Bittium Secure Suite secure software solution, therefore making Bittium Tough Mobile uniquely secure. The entity enables the user to have only one device for calls and messaging for both personal and for demanding information security needs, thus eliminating the need to carry two separate devices.

Bittium’s products and solutions are exhibited at stand D10. Bittium’s partner Getac is exhibiting on stand L1 rugged tablets that can be equipped with Bittium SafeMove® Mobile VPN and Analytics software. By equipping Getac’s products with Bittium’s software, the productivity, security and user experience of field workers operating in demanding conditions, can be improved.
