All Transceivers are connected to an AES67 IP-router and to the Eclipse HX system fitted with Clear-Com’s E-IPA high density audio-and-intercom-over IP system card. Each E-IPA card—also native AES67 based– provides up to 64 ports of IP connections which effectively supports 64 IPTs. The IPT Transceiver can be powered from a PoE switch or local power source. Direct fiber connection is also available on each IPT.
Distributed 1.9GHz FreeSpeak II IP Transceivers form an entire wireless communication network that is only limited by the user’s LAN. Within the LAN, one or more zones of wireless connections can be created with strategically-placed IPTs. FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks are seamlessly handed off from IPT to IPT, never losing connection on the intercom as long as the user stays within the zone. Each Transceiver supports up to 10 FreeSpeak II wireless beltpacks – twice as many beltpacks as the FreeSpeak II E1 transceiver.
“With the addition of the new IP Transceivers, FreeSpeak II users now have even more options with their wireless solution than any other system on the market,” said Simon Browne, Vice President of Clear-Com. “Today, FreeSpeak II operates on 1.9Ghz and 2.4GHz bands over fiber connections. By allowing the IP Transceivers to connect over AES IP networks, we have enhanced FreeSpeak II’s flexibility, providing an additional option for addressing customer’s ever-shifting intercom requirements.”
Existing FreeSpeak II beltpacks can easily be made compatible with the IPT through a simple firmware upgrade, eliminating the need for costly replacements.
The FSII IP Transceiver will be available to view on Clear-Com’s Booth 4Q4-01 at BCA2018, together with a wide range of Clear-Com’s trusted communication solutions.
