Bangalore, July 31, 2018: Remember that famous advertisement tagline of Tatas during the 1970s: We also make steel? We won't be surprised if Korean tech giant Samsung came up with its own take on the lines: We also make smartphones!
That is because the Korean tech giant is into some many things besides its flagship consumer handset line. Besides its own brand of LED and QLED TV sets, it offers TV displays and PC monitors as OEM products to many other makers including Thomson; storage products, audio accessories.. you name it.
Last week at its 'Mobility Conclave 2018’, an exclusive meet featuring cutting edge mobility solutions in Bengaluru. The day-long exhibition showcased Samsung’s latest next-generation mobility solutions that Samsung has to offer to the enterprises: Augmented Reality; Virtual Reality; Artificial Intelligence; Sales Force/ Field Force Automation Solutions and Bio-metric authentication solutions.
"Samsung offers reliable and secure enterprise mobility solutions as a crucial last mile enabling productivity, collaboration and smarter way of doing business,” explained Sukesh Jain, Senior Vice President, IT and Mobile Enterprise Business,Samsung India in a chat with IndiaTechOnline on the sidelines of the event.
Arguably the most visited demo was the stand displaying Samsung's Knox platform which was shown in remote device management scenarios; and neatly enabling the same device to be partitioned into separate personal and work silos -- a cool way to work and play on the same phone or tablet. Knox can also be used to create custom terminals for any industry application
Biometric Authentication Solutions
Samsung was the first in India to built iris-based authentication for the Aadhaar unique ID system in India into a portable device ( Here is our story about the Samsung Galaxy Tab Iris tablet)
Samsung smartphones and Tabs could be connected with third party biometric and peripheral devices like Finger Print Sensors, Thermal/Bluetooth Printers, Card Readers, etc. Integrating Samsung Smart Devices along with third party biometric and other peripherals into a single device is also possible to avoid carrying multiple devices. The integrated devices can be used for attendance system, micro ATMs, eKYC, direct benefit transfers, account openings, credit card payment collection, etc.
The Industry Solutions of Samsung include VR and AR solutions put to use for virtual trainings, design/preview of designs, education, simulations, tourism, multimedia, healthcare, automobile, retail, etc.
Smart Education Solutions address technology from K1-12, higher education, test preparation content and requirements, and highlighted collaborative power of digital learning.
