Getac Technology Corporation’s Sub-6 5G certified rugged laptop B360 joins the B360’s existing robust communications options consisting of 4G, Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200, 802.11ax, Bluetooth 5.2, optional dedicated GPS.

The B360 Sub-6 5G has increased throughput, reduced latency, and more simultaneous connections in comparison to current 4G LTE technology.

The laptop offers improved consistency in dense areas, higher-user capacity per tower, enhanced spectral efficiencies for more robust and reliable network connections, and a solid platform for future development.

“Integrating 5G into the Getac B360 makes possible a host of new applications for light and heavy industries, public service agencies, field forces and other key vertical market rugged computer customers,” Mike McMahon, President of Getac North America says. 

“At this point, there is no end in sight for the benefits 5G will ultimately deliver, but ensuring it is part of demanding users’ mobile capability is critical and the new B360 with integrated 5G is a leading platform for implementing that future.”

Available in two variants, including a ‘Pro’ model with enhancements specific to military needs, the B360 is highlighted by Intel’s high-powered 10th Generation CPUs, massive amounts of optional RAM and SSD storage space, shock protection, an IP66 rating, proprietary salt water spray protection and extreme temperature resistance.

Both models feature a 13.3” IPS TFT LCD FHD LumiBond 2.0 screen offering a maximum brightness of 1400nits at 1920×1080 pixels, Getac’s proprietary sunlight-readability/anti-glare solution and ability to accept input from industrial weight gloves. 

An optional power-efficient NVIDIA GeForce 10 series GTX portable computing graphics engine combining cutting-edge design, award-winning NVIDIA Pascal GPU architecture, ultra-fast FinFET and DirectX 12 support is also available.
