FreeLinc Offers World's First Wireless Accessories for Two-Way Radios

5/26/2005 - Breaking new ground in field-force communications, FreeLinc introduces a suite of wireless accessory products that increases safety, comfort and convenience for two-way radio users. The complete line of rugged wireless headsets and speaker-microphones “frees” the user from radio-to-headset cables, removing a common point of failure and enabling full physical range of motion in the field. Freelinc’s introductory family of products includes:

The wireless capability of all FreeLinc two-way radio accessories is supported by “near-field magnetic” technology. Magnetic communication provides superior reliability, security and battery life over typical radio frequency (RF) based solutions in extremely short-range applications. Its small magnetic communication “bubble” envelopes only the space of a sole two-way radio user, supporting privacy, security, power efficiency and interference immunity.

FreeLinc has partnered with Aura® Communications to integrate their LibertyLink® near-field magnetic solution. “LibertyLink is ideally suited for wireless headsets that operate aside any mobile electronic device—including MP3 players, portable DVD players and two-way radios,” says Kenneth Kokinakis, Aura’s President and CEO. “Our technology is poised to become the de-facto standard for any short-range wireless application that requires secure, efficient transmission of streaming audio, voice or data. With LibertyLink, FreeLinc’s customers will enjoy the most reliable personal-range wireless available.”

“FreeLinc is pioneering its market as the first to offer dependable wireless accessories for two-way radios,” says Anthony Sutera, FreeLinc’s CEO. “Our solutions will greatly benefit users of two-way radios through greater freedom of movement and safety. What’s more, many of our patent-pending products go beyond ‘cutting the cable’ to offer the latest-and-greatest features in headsets. For example, voice operated transmission (VOX), which allows for completely hands-free, secure communication, is unprecedented in the push-to-talk radio world.”

FreeLinc wireless accessories for two-way radios suit a vast range of field-force applications, including emergency response (fire, law, medical), military, even hospitality. The FreeMotion 200 is available now directly from FreeLinc. Pricing for single units begins at $349.00; discounts will be applied to volume orders. FreeMotion 100, FreeMic 200 and FreeRange 200 will be available this fall.
