Some of the most demanding jobs are performed beyond workplace walls. First responders, police officers, hurricane researchers, construction managers, soldiers, power company crews, public safety officials—these are just a few of the workers who need a portable computing device strong enough to withstand harsh environments.

You’ll also learn about:

- The ideal candidates for rugged devices
- How to determine if rugged devices are right for your team or organization
