Eurocom’s EOTG and SOTG deployment drives increased productivity with innovative, CPU- and GPU-upgradeable, heavy-duty, long lifespan Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers for high-performance company-wide use for engineering innovation with capability, mobility, and portability

Eurocom Corporation (www.eurocom.com), a developer of long lifespan, fully CPU- and GPU-upgradeable, heavy-duty, high-performance Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers, is offering a complete line of 15.6” and 17.3” laptops for Engineering-on-the-Go (EOTG), Server-on-the-Go (SOTG), and Rapid Engineering Deployment (RED Team). These deployment solutions offer gains in productivity, efficiency, and revenue.

Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers
By deploying Eurocom’s Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers, the productivity impact is palpable with gains in efficiency and reduction of non-productive time, especially when travel is involved. As well, new, more profitable revenue streams are possible with EOTG and SOTG deployment, which offer innovation to engineers.

Created with Engineers and Designers in mind, Eurocom’s Mobile Workstations are built to offer unmatched performance, long lifespan of 3-5 years, and full upgradeability of the processor, memory, storage, operating system, and graphics technology. They are designed with the most innovative technology and components available, from workstation-class desktop Intel Xeon processors and RAID 0/1/5/10 support to dual GPU support. Mobile Workstations have a high-performance cooling system to keep internal temperatures low for extended computing sessions. These laptops are easy to relocate for availability on-the-go; they come in at a weight of between 2.92 kg and 4.8 kg with the battery. For future expansion, there is an easy-to-access storage bay, and the CPU and GPU can be upgraded for changing operational and performance requirements. Mobile Workstations have a heavy-duty mechanical design that is designed to handle unintentional abuse.

Eurocom’s Mobile Servers come in a laptop form factor, meaning they include an integrated screen, keyboard, and built-in uninterruptable power supply (UPS) with up to 2.5 hours of backup power. Eurocom Mobile Servers are small enough be hand-carried, and there is no server room required. Mobile Server technology includes a combination of energy-optimized design, enterprise-class components, and an innovative form factor. Mobile Servers weigh between 2.92 kg and 3.9 kg with the battery.

Jon Peddie Research Workstation Report author and Senior Analyst, Alex Herrera stated, "PC and workstation products are built off much of the same core technologies, but the workstation is designed and built with different priorities in mind: maximum reliability and application-optimized performance for high-demand, visual applications. Many mainstream PC users have found their primary applications still run fine on machines three or more years old — or even run acceptably on phones or tablets — so there's little motivation to pay for a new one. But the same is not at all true for users in areas like CAD, digital media and entertainment, geoscience, and finance. These buyers need and value the return a new, higher-performance machine can provide in increased productivity."

Engineering-on-the-Go (EOTG)
Engineering-on-the-Go is defined by Eurocom as “having the ability to perform engineering activities anywhere in the world, made available by capable mobile hardware solutions that allows engineers to receive and process feedback while being face-to-face with customers, co-developers, final users, and other third parties.”

Server-on-the-Go (SOTG)
Server-on-the-Go allows for either “on-the-go”, “rapid server deployment”, “private cloud” or “Ad Hoc” (temporary network setup) when single server capability is required, multiple operating system compatibility is needed and running virtual machines is necessary. An SOTG solution is perfect for network monitoring and auditing, testing new applications, software and database developers, training centers, military personnel, manufacturing, marketing and trade shows, emergency relief, and service organizations. It also allows start-up companies and other organizations to acquire full network capabilities instantly “out-of-the-box”.

Rapid Engineering Deployment (RED) Team
RED Team stands for Rapid Engineering Deployment Team and allows companies to deploy teams of engineers on customer sites fully equipped with Eurocom Mobile Workstations and Mobile Server Technology to perform Engineering-on-the-Go activities. This allows engineers to adjust their design in their CAD, CAE, GIS, CAM, or other engineering programs at customer sites based on direct feedback from final users, customers, co-developers, and other third parties.

Business Benefits

  • Out-of-the-box solution: Complete, all-in-one, turn-key deployment of Mobile Workstations and Mobile Servers for EOTG, SOTG, and RED Team.

  • Reduce non-productive time: With equipment ready to go at the press of a button, downtime is greatly reduced – work anywhere, even when traveling.

  • Make changes as you go: Ability to design products and address concerns in the field, directly interfacing with clients. Get feedback and make quick, face-to-face adjustments with final users, customers, co-developers, and other third parties.

  • Easily relocate: Offer clients engineering capacity onsite, anywhere, and easily move locations with efficient set-up and tear-down.

  • Reduce costs: Your time to market is reduced, no downtime, and reduce development costs of projects.

  • Increase profit: Ability to increase company revenue and market share by moving quickly, efficiently, and effectively. Ability to introduce new services to new vertical markets due to increased capabilities and reduced downtime.


Real-life use cases
Drone Management
Eurocom’s Mobile Workstations can manage drones through EOTG deployment. Drone technology is useful in numerous fields, including journalism, film, photography, monitoring, disaster management, search and rescue, shipping, delivery, mapping, safety inspections, precision agriculture, wildlife monitoring, law enforcement and border patrol, construction, storm tracking and forecasting, and for fun.

Eurocom Mobile Workstations are in use for 3D Laser Scanning and UAV Mapping through drone deployment at Earl Dudley Inc (EDI), whose specialties include UAV Mapping, Laser Scanning, Machine Control, Mobile Mapping, Surveying, and global navigation satellite systems (GNSS). The high-end processing software applications used at EDI require customized laptops for high-end performance. Eurocom’s laptops are able manage the highly detailed three-dimensional data and images required in these applications, such as Pocket 3D, ScanMaster, eMotion 3 Software, Pix4Dmapper Pro, VG4D, and Virtual Surveyor Software.

Seismic Surveying
Streamline geotechnical operations with RED Team deployment onsite. Managing planning software, acquiring data, processing, interpretation, and surveys are easier with reliable and built-to-order hardware. There are numerous environmental challenges with surveying – with Eurocom’s RED Team solution, portability and imaging challenges are eliminated.
