Resellers across Germany and Europe now have access to some of the most advanced wireless voice technology from the US using the IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN standard.
SpectraLink, provider of wireless telephone systems for the workplace, and specialist wireless distributor, ARtem, have signed an agreement to distribute the NetLink Wireless Telephone System™ (NetLink WTS) to the European market.
NetLink WTS delivers voice over IP capabilities to wireless LANs, so that companies can operate a single internal wireless network for voice and data, which makes better use of management time, and is more economical.
Organisations using NetLink WTS can provide their staff with wireless telephones for two-way calling anywhere in the workplace, over a shared wireless network. This gives greater mobility, and allows a rapid response to customers’ enquiries.
“The agreement with SpectraLink will help us provide resellers in Germany with the very latest in feature-rich wireless voice technology,” said Markus Deisböck, CEO for marketing and sales at ARtem.
“The German market is leading Europe with its advanced telecommunications solutions. Using a specialist such as ARtem will mean organisations across the region will have access to the very latest wireless technology, supported by expert advice,” said Michael Cronin, president of SpectraLink International.
ARtem evolved from Daimler-Benz Aerospace AG in early 1997, and in 1999 attracted DaimlerChrysler Venture GmbH as a shareholder. Its key business is the integration and distribution of wireless communication systems. Due to its open system philosophy, ARtem is able to guarantee compatibility with international standards.
