Clear-Com Adds Edge Base Station To FreeSpeak Range

Clear-Com’s FreeSpeak Edge Base Station is an IP base station that supports the full range of FreeSpeak digital wireless intercom solutions including 1.9 GHz (including both E1 and IP transceivers), 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, as well as third-party Dante devices.

The FreeSpeak Edge Base Station provides a standalone solution for FreeSpeak Edge 5 GHz systems, as well as support for FreeSpeak 1.9 GHz IP Transceivers via AES67 connections, previously only available through Eclipse Digital Matrix systems with an E-IPA card. The single 1RU device supports up to 16 total beltpacks and 6 IP transceivers, (10 E1 Transceivers), with the flexibility to mix and match bands, as well as up to eight ports of IP interoperability with third-party Dante connections. With a mixture of IP, 2-wire and 4-wire audio ports, the FreeSpeak Edge Base Station can integrate a variety of systems, including Clear-Com Encore partyline and even two-way radio systems with an intelligent GPIO interface.

FreeSpeak Edge Base Station is configured through Clear-Com's browser-based CCM software which has been redesigned from the ground up to improve the configuration experience through intuitive menus and functions. The new CCM software offers at-a-glance system monitoring reducing the potential for downtime.

Designed to be quick to deploy, users can be up and running with a transceiver and two beltpacks in less than 5 minutes. Other features include a default system set-up right out of the box, the ability to add transceivers on the fly right from the front panel, and the ability to add beltpacks via USB. All of these result in a system that is ideally suited for live event settings, or any application where time is of the essence.

The 1RU station features two full-color high-resolution touch screen displays with four rotary encoders allowing four talk and listen channels, enabling the station operator to be able to communicate with the wireless beltpacks.
