A.R.C. - Active Remote Configuration
Deploy Your Mobile Devices With Ease
Psion Active Remote Configuration (A.R.C.) is designed to make deployment of your mobile devices easy. By capturing and replicating a device’s configuration and installed applications, you minimize your deployment setup time and cost. No need to fumble with cross referencing settings as the desired configuration is intuitively done properly on the device, then uploaded to the server for deployment across a fleet of devices.
Key Features & Benefits
Minimize Deployment Setup Time
A.R.C. allows administrators to replicate the configuration and installed applications of one device and then deploy across multiple devices - saving time and cost during both the initial deployment of devices and the redeployment of serviced devices.
Local and Remote Device Management
Software changes, including application installation, configuration and OS updates, are easily provisioned from a single management console. Furthermore, A.R.C. enables businesses to adhere to security policies through configure encryption and device lock down.
Using A.R.C., you can perform detailed and site specific deployments with many unique features. Conducting system updates, installing software, and configuring device specific settings can all be done reliably straight out of the box. These tasks can be applied to several devices at the same time over any network, through an ActiveSync connection, or remotely through the A.R.C. offline deployment feature.
Connectionless Device Deployment
A.R.C. does not require a network connection. Through provisioning packages via external (SD card/Flash drive), you can deploy configurations and applications while offline.
Maximum Return on Investment
By ensuring your devices are up-to-date in the field and saving time and money in deployment setup, A.R.C. allows your business to achieve a maximum ROI.
Powerful Configuration Management
With A.R.C., you can easily configure Open TekTerm parameters that must be unique system-wide, such as static IP addresses.
Extensive Device Data Collection
A.R.C. allows you to create reports listing all Psion computers on a site by serial number and collect device details such as WiFi settings, installed hardware modules, system software, and battery settings.
Flexible System Updates
A.R.C provides the flexibility to install new applications, operating system and device drivers as well as update mobile computers on a regular schedule without having to locate the device or connect to a network.
Easy Device Discovery
Auto-discover remote devices, use the Rules feature to automatically assign a device, and easily connect to a network through A.R.C.’s Auto Connect or Offline deployment feature.
The File and Folder Activities task in A.R.C. lets you download files to devices, modify files and folders, and run command line executables.
Advanced Network Utilization
With the adaptive download feature, the A.R.C. Server does not impede on other network traffic when the network is busy, or can increase its transmission speed when there is little other traffic.
