ATLANTA -- LXE Inc. announced today that the Port of Houston Authority (PHA) has chosen LXE to provide a turnkey RF (wireless) network and rugged mobile computers for its 63+ acre Bayport Terminal, its second fully-automated intermodal container-handling facility. The solution will include all components of the RF network plus LXE's rugged VX6 vehicle-mounted computers and MX5 handheld computers. The system will interface with the Navis EXPRESS and SPARCS terminal software systems.
As part of the agreement, LXE will also provide its patented Spire(r) Antennas. The unique design of the Spire Antenna provides increased coverage, superior performance and greater throughput than conventional antennas. The Spire Antenna makes 2.4 GHz wireless technology a viable and preferred option for port facilities over traditional narrowband RF technology options.
"The RF network and terminals need to be reliable, even in inclement weather, short of a hurricane," says Jeff Davis, PHA's container operations manager. "Given LXE's 'rugged and reliable' reputation and their significant experience working with ports, we have full confidence that LXE's products will do well in Houston's often hot and humid climate."
"Container ports are probably the most demanding environments for rugged computers and wireless data networks," says Jim Childress, LXE president and general manager. "Using the experience gained from installing and supporting RF systems in over 200 port facilities around the world, we have designed our products are designed to thrive in these salty, wet, hot and humid environments."
