KAINDL FLOORING WAREHOUSE DEPLOYS NETLINK WIRELESS PHONES.

SpectraLink Corporation (Nasdaq: SLNK), Boulder, Colo., an industry pioneer in enterprise wireless communications, has announced that Kaindl Flooring GmbH, a leading manufacturer of laminated flooring products, has deployed NetLink Wireless Telephones in its primary warehouse in Salzburg, Austria. The deployment was added to Kaindl Flooring's existing wireless local area network (LAN) that is used for inventory management and scanning, in order to give users in the warehouse the ability to communicate with one another. Kaindl Flooring worked through IBM Global Services to purchase and install the new system. The NetLink Wireless Telephones are integrated with a Cisco CallManager IP telephony application, which is tied to the company's existing Alcatel PBX. Calls are relayed over an 802.11b wireless LAN through a network of Cisco Aironet access points installed throughout the 150 by 100 meter facility. Unlike DECT, a cordless telephone technology common in Europe that Kaindl Flooring also considered, the wireless LAN gives the ability to combine voice and data traffic on a converged wireless infrastructure. This capability will save the flooring manufacturer on telecommunications resources while making employees more efficient through increased mobility.

"By using the NetLink Wireless Telephones to leverage our existing wireless LAN to bring voice service into our warehouse, we were able to save the investment a DECT system would have cost, and the corresponding expense of upgrading our PBX," said Andreas Schlager, project manager and network specialist at Kaindl Flooring. "The voice quality is exceptional and the handsets' rugged design is perfect for our demanding environment." "By leveraging its existing 802.11 wireless LAN, Kaindl Flooring has demonstrated the value of converged voice and data on a single network over voice-only solutions such as DECT," said Mike Cronin, vice president of sales and marketing for SpectraLink. "We are proud that our technology contributes to higher levels of efficiency at Kaindl Flooring."
