Juniper Systems Partners with Accelent Systems for Development of Vertical Market Handheld

7/29/2002 - Accelent Systems Inc. today announced that Juniper Systems, Inc, a leading producer of rugged field computers and mobile GIS/GPS packages, chose Accelent’s embedded device development solutions to enable its recently released next generation field PC, the Allegro CE. The Allegro CE is waterproof, withstands extreme environmental conditions, runs Microsoft Windows CE 3.0, and features Intel’s StrongARM SA1110 processor.

Juniper Systems utilized a wide variety of Accelent’s leading technologies to get the Allegro CE from concept to production in 5 months. Accelent’s robust IDP - Integrated Development Platform (Windows CE 3.0 / StrongARM) was used as a basis for application development and also used IDP schematics as a reference for building the board design. Accelent engineering services were used to review and verify the hardware design and to port Accelent’s leading system software (device drivers) to the final hardware design.

According to Gary Spence, V.P. of Engineering for Juniper Systems, “Accelent possesses a unique blend of both hardware and software expertise that is extremely hard to find in a systems integrator. We found that most had strengths in one or the other, but not both. It was this powerful combination that led us to choose Accelent and, ultimately, what enabled us to get our product to market in the tight time frame we required.”

“The development of Juniper’s Allegro CE used nearly every aspect of our development solutions from our IDP platform to system software to engineering services,” said Albert McCabe, EVP of sales and marketing for Accelent Systems. “The 5 month development of the Allegro CE serves testament to the stability and power of our solutions in developing highly complex embedded devices in a short period of time.”
