Teams on the go

Enterprise mobility solutions provider Spectralink is bringing the benefits of cloud-based collaboration tools to ‘deskless workers’ in healthcare, manufacturing, retail and logistics by launching its DECT devices integrated with Microsoft Teams SIP Gateway. Mahendra Sekaran, Vice President of Teams Engineering at Microsoft, said: “Spectralink DECT integration with Microsoft Teams SIP Gateway enables Teams users to use their DECT devices as another Teams endpoint, while getting access to all of Teams collaboration capabilities.

Version 1.1 offers expanded network testing, including verification of connectivity and response times to key network devices with one touch of the screen; two-pair cable performance tests up to 100 Mb/s; support for 12 languages; and a new version of LinkWare PC software, the industry’s de facto reporting solution. Robert Luijten, Field Marketing Director, Fluke Networks, said: “Our network test features give systems integrators and network administrators visibility into network connectivity and response times of key resources, allowing them to verify and troubleshoot end-to-end network issues.”




Network roll out

Altnet provider Digital Infrastructure (and full-fibre broadband provider BeFibre), which in December 2021 announced £100m of private investment to support
its goal to deliver FTTP connectivity to 80 towns and 1,000,000 properties by 2027, has announced new locations in the roll-out of its next generation full-fibre network. These are Oundle, Maltby, Dinnington, Hyde, Hattersley, Heysham, Skelmersdale and parts of Rotherham and Lancaster. Digital Infrastructure/BeFibre has already started building its network and offering a choice of four broadband packages with speeds of up to 900Mbps in Brentwood, Worcester, Clacton on Sea, Crewe and Nantwich. It expects to create up to 500 engineering and white-collar jobs to support the growth of both organisations and the business supply chain by the end of 2022.

Precise locating

Reliance Protect, a provider of lone worker solutions, has launched a next generation keyfob-style personal safety device, Pulse+, combining proven technology from the company’s Ultra ID device with new features to ensure those in need are helped as quickly as possible after activating an alarm. For example, use of the latest 4G technology enables Pulse+ to make alarm calls and send a user’s current location in parallel, rather than in sequence as with traditional lone worker devices, while built-in WiFi locating technology ensures more accurate positioning of lone workers within buildings. Chris Allcard, Lone Worker Services Director at Reliance Protect, said: “While GPS is a great location finding technology when used outdoors, its capabilities are significantly restricted when a device is used indoors – at best it will give an inaccurate location position and in many cases will not provide a location position at all. At this point, older technology lone worker devices have to rely on sending a previous last known location. Pulse+ utilises both GPS and WiFi locating technologies to quickly generate accurate location positions regardless of whether the user is indoors or outdoors.” lone-worker-devices/pulse-3/
