Icom IP100H WLAN Radio
Icom IP100H WLAN Radio
A new radio system that will provide licence free, yet secure communications for business sectors that are unable to gain coverage or run conventional two-way radios. The simplicity of this new system is that the communication is licence free and via a Wireless Local Access Network (WLAN) point….it literally uses the same technology we use to operate our tablets, mobile phones or PC’s.
Icom’s new IP Advanced Radio System provides organisations with a simple radio system which is only restricted in its range by the coverage area of a wireless LAN network. The communication range can easily be extended by adding more access points on an IP network. This makes it an ideal communication tool in areas where radio was previously difficult to reach such as in upper and lower storeys and in complicated building layouts…you can use it in any building that has WLAN. Also as the system uses licence free technology, there are no annual licence fees or call charges to be paid once the systems has been set up. In addition you can add an IP phone or conventional radio equipment to your scheme when used in conjunction with the optional VE-PG3 communication expansion unit.

There are many organisations such as hotels, restaurants and small shops that have typically used licence free radios because of cost issues and relatively small coverage requirement. They usually suffer from interference, lack of privacy, limited calling features and communication instability because of other users on a busy shared band. For these customers, licensed full powered radios can be difficult to use because of the unavailability of frequency spectrum or the expense of maintaining and licensing a radio scheme. This new Licence free Wireless LAN system brings back cost effective and efficient private communication to this previously unserved customer base.
These are still preliminarily details for this radio system and specifications may change.
