Features and Benefits

Features Benefits
Remote Hard Reset In the event that a 'hard power-on' is required, the BlueBird allows the operator to remotely re-boot the field-installed equipment.
Shut Off Protection The BlueBird automatically restarts the field-installed equipment after a power loss, minimizing downtime.
Remote Diagnostics Operators can remotely check the status of the wireless network and cellular phone for signal strength and conditions such as 'Fast Busy', 'No Service' and 'Locked' reducing the need for on-site intervention.
Auto Re-try on 'Fast Busy' and 'No Service' The BlueBird recognizes 'Fast Busy' and 'No Service', conditions unique to wireless communications. It will automatically initiate an auto re-dial process guaranteeing the call is completed regardless of network status.
MNP10TM Error Correction The BlueBird supports the industry standard MNP10TM, ensuring the integrity of data over a variable signal and enhancing wireless communication performance.
Single Power Source Only one power source is required for both the BlueBird and cellular phone, increasing portability and simplifying installation.
