“The ramifications of such instant connectivity with people half-way across the globe are mind-boggling,” says Hans Chia, regional sales manager – Southeast Asia, Clear-Com (booth 4Q4-01).
“With our LQ Series of audio-over-IP (AoIP) interfaces, you can network geographically dispersed audio and communications devices of any brand or technology type over secure LAN, WAN or even the public Internet, at a very low cost.”
Chia explains that the LQ Series are AoIP interfaces for moving and distributing audio and communications signals to or from one or more communication points, depending on the user’s configuration.
“You can also use LQ Series to scale your existing traditional intercom for system expansion and greatly enhance communication with IP capabilities with SIP telephony and mobile apps,” he says.
“As you know, laying down new cables for every new communication set-up could be daunting. With LQ, all connections are virtual — over the Internet or IP network — enabling users to only be concerned with the end-point positions.
“It is truly as easy as plug-and-play.”
The product can be deployed with the peace of mind that the user’s IT/IP infrastructure will remain unaffected by the LQ network, thanks to efficient use of IT bandwidth. LQ works over a wide range of networks with different quality of service (QoS) parameters and signal distribution speed remains high throughout the network.
“Another advantage is that you can expand your intercom footprint by deploying LQ interfaces at your desired intercom access points,” says Chia.
“Industry-standard analogue partyline systems can be extended by simply adding beltpacks at the remote location without another system. So what was once technically impossible or cost-prohibitive to connect is now easily achieved over secure IP networks.”
