Clear-Com updates LQ Series of IP interfaces15 June 2017
Clear-Com has enhanced its LQ Series, adding SIP capability for telephone and interoperability, connecting traditional intercom with Agent-IC mobile application users, and increasing the available input/output ports for HelixNet digital partyline.
Currently LQ interfaces can link any 2-wire partyline and/or 4-wire digital solutions over IP networks. With the updated LQ devices that now host Clear-Com’s Agent-IC, core users on traditional intercom systems can communicate in full duplex with Intercom Mobile App users on smart devices. All setups and configurations are easily managed within the browser-based Core Configuration Manager (CCM).
Clear-Com’s HelixNet digital networked partyline system receives a six-fold increase in I/O ports with the updated LQ interfaces. LQ will provide up to 24 audio ports assigned to any of the 12/24 intercom channels in HelixNet. These supplement the HelixNet ports for interfacing with 2-wire and/or 4-wire intercom or audio devices, effectively creating a much higher-density digital partyline intercom system. Signals from any remote devices are routed over IP to the assigned HelixNet end point(s).
The LQ Series also offers much more connectivity with its SIP interfacing capability. Now, users on any Clear-Com or third-party intercom systems can make direct calls over SIP-based phone systems and digital two-way radios cost-effectively over LQ.
“The LQ solution was designed to facilitate the connection and distribution of audio signals among any industry-standard intercom and audio devices over secure IP networks. They achieve this through high-speed data links providing up to the full 20kHz audio bandwidth through the adaptable OPUS Codec,” said Stephen Sandford, Product Manager, Clear-Com. “In this release, Clear-Com has further expanded LQ capabilities with other communications systems, making it a flexible, platform-agnostic, ultra-fast and high-quality IoIP solution.”
