Category: Communication Systems | 10/09/2010 - 07:46:22
Phonak Condor is the world's first truly hands-free secure encrypted mobile communications system.
Condor provides small groups – such as mobile units and covert teams - with the ultimate in on-the-go communication flexibility.
This highly durable, license-free all-in-one solution, produced by miniaturized hearing device specialist Phonak Communications of Murten, Switzerland, is usable straight out-of-the-box and comprises a palm-sized, easy-to-wear radio unit and the user’s choice of Phonak market-leading headset.
Full-Duplex Communications (no PTT)
Condor frees small teams by allowing up to six colleagues to communicate in full duplex mode (simultaneously talking and listening), without ever having to use a ‘push-to-talk’ button. (Any number of additional colleagues can also listen in via the same closed network).
Condor communicates over a fully secure channel and crucially for small mobile teams, Condor does not require a base station.
Condor users are also free from time-consuming and hasslesome red tape-free; the system employs free-to-use frequencies so no licenses are required and the system can be deployed instantly wherever and whenever it is required.
Small, light, durable and comfortable to wear, Condor is flexible enough to perform in all types of environment: teams can communicate at distances of up to 800 meters; the system is quick to configure (with simple pairing and no PC required); and team leaders can quickly and easily create the user-defined networks they require for simple, effective on-site communications. 3 configurations of Condor are available to suit every type of use:
