Spectralink refreshes DECT handset portfolio of WorkSmart products

Wavelink LogoSeptember 8, 2015 — Spectralink Corporation (“Spectralink”), a global leader in wireless solutions for the workplace, has has announced a refresh of its 7000 Portfolio of DECT handsets, along with the addition of new models to the series to even better meet end user needs.

In today’s connected world, organisations are increasingly looking for devices that offer flexible mobility alongside the secure reliability required for the workplace. Designed with reliability and durability in mind, the Spectralink 7000 Portfolio handsets are built to address these challenges. They cater especially to usage within demanding workplace environments like those of the retail, manufacturing and healthcare sectors.

Spectralink will be rolling out upgrades to its 7000 Portfolio of handsets over the course of the remainder of the year, with updates to the functionality, design and usability of the devices.

“The latest refresh of Spectralink’s DECT portfolio demonstrates our continued dedication to solving the growing demand for workplace mobility and communications,” said Dan Mondor, CEO, Spectralink Corporation. “By adding new functionality to the DECT handsets, staff can be more efficient while also ensuring they operate safely in the most demanding workplace environments.”

The first of these updates is the 7522 DECT handset, which maintains the form factor’s elegant yet robust existing feature set, including a large colour display and intuitive menu structure, while also providing support for Software Updates over the Air (SUOTA). This means that device software can be updated quickly and easily from a central location over the air, rather than having each handset manually updated. The Spectralink 7522 is now available in Australia and New Zealand.

Going forward, Spectralink will be implementing further upgrades to the handset portfolio. The changes will bring newer industrial design, features and technology to the devices, while retaining the robust long-term dependability catering to harsh environments.

Built for users with a focus on usability, functionality, design and quality, the Spectralink 7000 Portfolio handsets consist of a wide range of reliable and durable models. They are specialised for use in environments from general office applications to intrinsically safe surroundings. Additionally, the handsets support integration with third-party applications to maximise their performance in manufacturing and healthcare environments. All Spectralink 7000 Portfolio handsets are interoperable allowing for deployments with a mix of handsets.
