Kirk Telecom Adds Wi-Fi To Wireless Product Portfolio

Kirk Telecom, a SpectraLink company, has announced the introduction of SpectraLink NetLink Wireless Telephones into its product portfolio consisting of enterprise wireless telephone solutions. The company says the move, a result of Kirk telecom having been acquired by SpectraLink, enforces their position as a leading provider of wireless solutions, comprising the two major enterprise wireless voice technologies, Wi-Fi and DECT.

The addition of NetLink Wireless Telephones complements the existing KIRK wireless product line, which includes wireless DECT solutions with analogue, ISDN and IP interfaces to the PBX. The Wi-Fi handsets furthermore fit well into the KIRK vertical market strategy and broaden the selection presented to the customer – in terms of technology and in terms of handset functionalities targeted at specific vertical market segments.

The SpectraLink VIEW Certification Program ensures interoperability between the SpectraLink Wi-Fi handsets and 802.11 access points (APs). There are a number of VIEW certified APs from companies such as 3COM, Nortel, Alcatel, Aruba, Symbol and Trapeze.

“We are delighted to be able to use this year’s CeBIT stand to show our customers our expanded product portfolio and look forward to providing the market with an even broader spectrum of wireless solutions – now encompassing Wi-Fi as well as DECT,” stated Ole Lysgaard Madsen, president and managing director at KIRK telecom A/S.

“With this product launch we are at the first step of leveraging our acquisition of KIRK telecom A/S. The launch of Wi-Fi products in the KIRK sales channels – as well as the launch of DECT products in the existing SpectraLink channels – is increasing our international reach, making us a truly global leader in enterprise wireless voice solutions,” said John Elms, CEO at SpectraLink.

The NetLink handsets will be displayed at the KIRK telecom A/S stand together with the range of KIRK DECT handsets at CeBIT. Furthermore the KIRK Wireless Server 600/3 will be displayed and demonstrated along with different third party applications to enhance functionalities.
