Juniper Systems has selected Paragon Software Group‘s proprietary File System Link (FSL, formerly Universal File System Driver (UFSD)) cross-platform technology for use in the company’s Mesa Tablet product line.
Available now, Juniper has incorporated Paragon’s exFAT FSL driver in the recently launched Mesa 3 Rugged Tablet. Now shipping worldwide, Juniper’s Mesa 3 tablet runs on the Android 9.0 operating system and offers the next evolution in handheld computing and data collection for all Android-based application needs, the company said.
To add to the device’s capabilities, Paragon exFAT file system technology is said to give the tablet the industry’s highest read/write access speeds for data residing on Android-formatted HDD, SSD or flash drives – all while maintaining the exFAT file system integrity of the removable Secure Digital (SD) card and protecting against data loss.
Paragon’s FSL embedded drivers support exFAT under all popular operating systems, including Android, Linux, QNX and others. The drivers can be used by OEMs to support SDXC cards formatted to exFAT for deployment in mobile, storage, network, IoT, digital home, and car infotainment products.
In addition, Juniper has also secured a Microsoft exFAT patent technology distribution license through Paragon. exFAT, a modern file system from Microsoft, facilitates large files for audiovisual media and enables seamless data portability and an easy interchange between desktop PCs and other electronic devices.
Using exFAT technology, consumers can securely transfer multimedia content to entertainment devices, or to external storage for later playback.
