The WiPath Wireless Data Network

The WiPath Wireless Data Network (WDN) is the collective name given to the combination of our mobile data terminals and Gatekeeper mobile data gateway software working with integrated CAD or job management systems supplied by our dealers or partnered systems integrators.

The WDN provides the framework around which an extremely versatile and flexible voiceless dispatch system can be created for mobile job management and field service automation.

The WDN can be integrated into almost any computer aided dispatch, job management, logistics or maintenance management system with a number of easily configured software tools.
