Clear-com FSE-BASE Base Station for FreeSpeak Edge Intercom

Clear-com FreeSpeak Edge Base Station is a standalone 1RU device that provides extensive
connectivity to a wide range of Clear-Com endpoints along with third-party Dante devices. Built primarily to deploy 5 GHz transceivers and beltpacks, the base station also provides support to FreeSpeak II splitters, 1.9 GHz E1 and IP transceivers/beltpacks*, and 2.4 GHz E1 transceivers/beltpacks. The base supports up to 6 IPT or FreeSpeak Edge (FSE) transceivers, up to 10 E1 transceivers (1.9 or 2.4GHz), and up to 100 channels. The base station also provides multiple software-defined interoperable IP ports that support both Dante and third-party devices. This third-party connection capability gives the base station a wide powerful breadth of device coverage for professional intercom users. .
