Tough Corp Announces Agreement with NextComputing

By: Tough Corp  05-Apr-2012

Tough Corp today announces an agreement with Next Computing to supply, promote and service the range of NextComputing, manufacturer of rugged portable and dense form factor work-stations, throughout Australia.

The combination of the NextComputing’s market-leading products and Tough Corp’s considerable knowledge and existing client base in the rugged sector, will help establish NextComputing as a market leader in rugged portables and dense form factor workstations on an international scale.

Government and military organisations have many mission critical responsibilities demanding the utmost in computer performance. For Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) applications, commercial notebooks – ruggedised or not – simply do not possess the required performance, power, or storage capabilities and transporting bulky, fragile servers that can't hold up in a harsh environment and that consume large amounts of electrical power is only a liability when the stakes are high.

“I take great pleasure in announcing the relationship between NextComputing and Tough Corp. Next Computing is known for producing innovative and high quality products. This addition will complement our existing range of rugged field computer equipment and fills a niche that has been under represented in our offering. It should assist us in creating new opportunities in the rugged server and workstation space.” said Justin Spencer, Tough Corp’s National Manager for Defence, Security and Intelligence.
