“Some days, the little extra push of our competition makes the difference for me getting out to do my daily exercise. Our competition is making a difference for me. It has only been a few weeks. But I’ve lost weight. I’m stronger. And I’m thankful to participate and leverage our competition for the extra bit of motivation that I need some days.” -Kent Campbell, Product Assurance Engineer

For the past three months, Juniper Systems employees have worked to improve themselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially through a variety of activities and challenges presented by Juniper’s Human Resources team. Split into groups of 8-9, these seven teams fought hard to earn points and bring their team to the top. Points were scored on both the individual and team level with a number of points awarded for 30 minutes of daily exercise, including others in your exercise, tracking diet, planning/participating in company-wide activities, mental/emotional self-assessments, getting a physical, and much more. And though this program was voluntary, more than half of the company chose to participate. Talk about a tight bunch. Continue Reading…

Ron Campbell 2

Following a long and successful career, Juniper Systems Founder and Chairman Ron Campbell retired from the company on May 31, 2017. With a retirement open house held on May 25 to celebrate his impactful career, his family, friends, coworkers, and colleagues gathered to wish him well and reminisce on the many memory-filled years together.

At the open house, several Juniper Systems employees spoke about the achievements Ron has made over the years, and the positive impact he has had on each one of them. During the program, it was announced that a perpetual college scholarship would be established in Ron’s name to honor his love for education and life-long learning. Ron was also presented with a plaque and a book filled with thoughtful entries from almost every employee at Juniper to serve as a reminder of how appreciated his efforts truly are and how much he means to this organization.

ESRI™, a leader in mapping and spatial analytics software, has recently provided an article covering old vs. new methods of mapping on their ArcNews page. This article works to explain how ESRI’s software comes together to create a seamless mapping workflow from field to office. As a long-standing partner of theirs, we’re excited to share.

Call us biased, but using ESRI software on Juniper’s rugged data collectors and our new Geode Sub-meter GPS Receiver is the ideal way to completely transform your current workflow system and improve accuracy and communication, saving hours of time and money. Check out the full article below to understand how you can integrate ESRI software into your current practices.

Mesa 2 In Hand 2

For those of you who are new to the world of RFID and rugged handheld computing, welcome. We hope this post serves as a guide to help you better understand which information collection option best suits the needs of your project. A common question often answered here at Juniper is, “Which RFID frequency should I use?” We want to make sure you’re getting the tools you need, without overpaying for features that won’t be useful in your situation. Because identification readers are used in so many different cases, it’s hard to identify a customer’s exact needs without speaking to them directly. However, we hope these questions serve as a starting point to launch you in the right direction and prepare you to ask the right questions when determining the best option for your project.

DSC04173-Taking Readings

With more than 1.9 million tons of bombs and ammunitions dropped over Germany alone during World War II, thousands of ordnance still remain buried and undetonated beneath the earth’s surface. These UXOs live up to several meters deep, unstable and ready to blow at the first available opportunity. In the case of undetonated air drop bombs, the fuses are extremely unstable due to corrosion and aging. This creates a serious issue with construction and excavation projects, among other applications. Vibration from large equipment and digging operations have the potential to set off these UXO buried in the ground below, triggering the long-dormant objects to detonate.

Juniper Systems established a partnership with Industrial Networks this month after an extensive, collaborative effort in integrating ATA/AEI long-range UHF RFID tag readers into the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet. As the only existing solution of its kind, it will serve as a complete identification and tracking system for the railroad industry, as well as other industries requiring long-range UHF RFID tag reading.

Industrial Networks President Jimmy Finster contacted Juniper Systems seeking a sleek and innovative option that included a solid rugged handheld with ATA reading capabilities and an all-day battery life and the Mesa 2 jumped at the opportunity. What a showoff.

For those unfamiliar with our latest rugged tablet, The Mesa 2 with ATA UHF RFID runs on a complete Windows 10 operating system, allowing users to operate the rugged tablet as a full desktop computer. Its Class 1, Div II classification ensures it’s built to be used in hazardous locations, while its IP68 rating provides the highest-rated protection against water and dust.

The current standard solution for tracking and identification systems in the railroad industry is a Windows Mobile handheld with an external RFID antenna. With an increased battery life and Windows 10 capability, Industrial Networks was pleased to look into this product, as new solution able to fit the high demands of the railroad industry.

Here at Juniper we’re excited about both the product we’ve created and a long-term partnership with Industrial Networks.
