High Performance Wireless Router – Wireless must be secured and must not block LAN connectivity via wireless isolation nor port/protocol blocking in its firewall. Wireless coverage should have strong signal in all areas, including outside, where a Service Advisor or Technician will come in to contact with the vehicle. Wireless access points may be required at different, strategically located, points to achieve this. Only one device on the network should control DHCP (IP Address Assignment). If more than one device controls DHCP, this will create multiple sub-nets on the shops LAN and wireless devices will only work when connected to the same device that the data host machine is connected to. All computers on the network should be behind the same router that is issuing DHCP.
The data host machine should have a high end multi-core processor with 8GB RAM or more. This allows for a better user experience. Lower end processors with smaller amounts of RAM will work but will not perform as quickly. Remember that SQL server is designed for many concurrent connections. What point would it be to have a lower end CPU with smaller amounts of RAM hosting a SQL server database if all those concurrent connections have to wait in line to process? Again, it will work, just not as fast.
Mobile Device – Android OS version 4.2.2 or better with a 5 megapixel or better rear facing camera.
