19 Apr 18

Enterprise mobility solutions provider Spectralink has launched a new handset to the market – the first in a series of product announcements since the launch of the company’s DECT innovation program.

Spectralink says the 7502 DECT handset provides businesses with a robust and affordable solution that delivers superior voice communications and targeted messaging for businesses of all sizes, combined with scalability.

“Our new handset is ideal for businesses looking for an affordable entry-point mobility solution to improve employee communications and efficiencies - but are also conscious that they require a solution that will grow with their business,” comments Spectralink chief executive officer Doug Werking.

“For me, offering a portfolio of solutions that integrate with each other and new technologies, including business applications, ensures our customers benefit from solutions that meet their needs today, and protects their investment by meeting their needs tomorrow.” 

“Spectralink’s Spectralink’s managing director of APAC & EMEA sales, Simon Rayne, notes that the handset supports plug-and-play deployment thanks to centralised provisioning. It also supports over-the-air firmware updates and a reduction in endpoint administration and maintenance costs.

Any business focusing on growth are looking for entry-point mobile handsets to manage operational efficiencies and improve staff productivity,” comments Rayne.

Spectralink explains the 7502 DECT handset further:

“The 7502 provides superior voice quality as well as targeted messaging, enterprise-grade security and the combination of robust design with Li-ion batteries for day-long use even across shifts and therefore ideal for environments where ensuring staff are always reachable (such as healthcare, retail, warehousing, catering and hospitality to name just a few).”

Other key features include: 
-certified and simple integration with market-leading Call Control and UC Platforms such as Broadsoft, Cisco, Microsoft, Mitel, Digium (Asterisk) 
- secure targeted messages delivering up to 24-character notifications from a central location to local outlets such as franchise or retail stores 
- robust design for extended life expectancy compared with consumer grade products 
- DECT Air encryption and enterprise-grade security protocols for enhanced protection 
- handset vibration and wired headset support for noisy environments and hands-free tasks 
- application integration for tools ranging from messaging to alerts

“We designed this new affordable handset with this in mind: it’s a user-friendly voice centric solution with enhanced security features that maximises employee communications and productivity,” Rayne concludes.

Wavelink is the distributor for Spectralink products.

Since 1990, Spectralink has deployed millions of mobile devices and UC solutions worldwide – providing enterprises with reliable, high quality and secure mobility solutions.
