TMCNet:  Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet with USB OTG To Be Compatible with LOK-IT

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet with USB OTG To Be Compatible with LOK-IT

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Deerfield Beach, Florida (PRWEB) February 08, 2013 The LOK-IT Secure Flash Drive will be adding another tablet PC to its list of compatible smartphones and tablets, as it is widely anticipated that Samsung continue its trend of including USB On-The-Go (OTG) capability on its devices, including the soon to be launched Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet PC.

It is widely accepted that tablet PCs provide significant advantages in many situations to the notebook PC and desktop PC counterparts. A recent study from an NPD Group study indicates that 37 percent of consumers who used to access content on their PCs switched to their tablets and smartphones. Common reasons for this movement are the tablet’s convenient form and the fact that tablets are always “on” and accessible – no booting required.

Yet, there remain obstacles to even wider acceptance. In 2011, Jack Wallen identified the top 10 ways tablets must improve, but many of these improvements have yet to emerge such as Better USB Support.

Samsung has been the primary manufacturer to take this issue seriously, as it has incorporated USB OTG into the majority of its branded tablet PC lines. USB OTG allows users to connect a peripheral device and operate it directly from the tablet, such as a mouse, keyboard or USB flash drive. USB OTG is active in previous releases of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, Samsung Galaxy Note, and Samsung ATIV families of tablets.

George Wolf, President of Systematic Development stated, “The portability of tablets provides business travelers a much lighter option to carrying a notebook. There may not always be an Internet connection while traveling or at a destination. Business must go on, so there must be another way to access and back up important files, while still upholding corporate data security policies.” The LOK-IT Secure Flash Drive is an encrypted USB flash drive that meets even the most strict portable data security standards. LOK-IT is completely O/S independent, so works with Android tablets and smartphones. The transfer of files between LOK-IT and tablets is made even easier with the free LOK-IT File Sync app that provides a way to do so, quickly.

Samsung has stated that the company’s primary goal for 2013 is to have its devices adopted my more corporations and enterprise users. The inclusion of USB OTG appears to be a difference-maker in Samsung’s favor and could be a factor in furthering its growth into the enterprise.

Apple does not allow USB OTG communication on any of its iPad tablets, and Google has currently opted out of USB OTG for use with portable storage in its line of Nexus tablets.

About Systematic Development Group SDG is the developer, manufacturer and distributor of the LOK-IT Secure Flash Drive®. LOK-IT protects all contents with 256-bit AES hardware encryption and provides the means for authentication via an onboard PIN-pad, utilizing the patents pending DataLock® technology from ClevX, LLC.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
