Belkin introduces Secure and Charge for K-12 Education
Playa Vista, CA-based Belkin, a provider of technology solutions for classroom, IT infrastructure, office, and mobile environments, today introduced Belkin Secure and Charge, the company's newest mobile device management solution for classroom use. The Belkin Secure and Charge makes it easy to securely deploy and support tablets and Chromebooks so teachers and students can focus more on the learning experience, and less on the hassles of managing their mobile devices.
“As we've continued working with education customers to better understand their technology challenges, it became clear that they required an increased level of mobile device protection, while reducing the hassles of managing these devices”
Designed for learning environments, the Secure and Charge stores and charges up to 10 tablets, USB-charging compatible Chromebooks, and e-readers at easy-to-reach angles, keeping them organized, available, fully charged, and ready for classroom use. The station can store and charge different kinds of devices at the same time, each with its own charging cable or adapter. An open setup facilitates easy access and seamless wireless syncing.
The Secure and Charge comes with a lockable security enclosure to deter tampering and theft. Because the station is lock type and brand agnostic, users may choose their preferred lockset for easy device management.
Some additional Secure and Charge features include integrated cable management features that minimize tangles and clutter; labeling space for personalization and identification; compatibility with standard AV carts for ease of transport from classroom to classroom or tabletop to storage location; ability to mount up to three Secure and Charge systems together for the ultimate mobile device charging station; and surface mounting features that allow units to be securely attached to tables or carts.
"As we've continued working with education customers to better understand their technology challenges, it became clear that they required an increased level of mobile device protection, while reducing the hassles of managing these devices," said Jon Roepke, senior product manager, Business Division, Belkin International. "With lockable security features, the Secure and Charge offers an elegant, accessible, and affordable mobile device management solution designed to optimize digital learning."
The Belkin Secure and Charge will be available in May through the company's global network of distributors and resellers.
