BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FreeLinc Technologies Inc., the world’s leader in Near Field Magnetic Induction (NFMI) Intellectual Property and solutions, and David Clark Company, a leading manufacturer of communication headset solutions for high-noise and hazardous environments, have entered into a strategic alliance that will significantly impact the markets served by both companies.
FreeLinc Technologies’ NFMI provides David Clark with a highly secure, reliable and power efficient solution for eliminating the cords to its hearing protection and communications products – without using RF. Law enforcement and public safety officers have used FreeLinc’s NFMI-enabled radio accessories for more than a decade, and there are now over 2500 separate federal, state and local U.S. public safety agencies using FreeLinc products, including the FBI and the US Secret Service.
“David Clark Company is very excited to be an early adopter of FreeLinc’s NFMI technology. Integrating NFMI to our ruggedized communication product portfolio adds a new level of safety, security and freedom for our customers,” said Rich Urella, President of David Clark Company, Inc.
FreeLinc’s NFMI creates a low-power magnetic field around devices and uses that field to transfer voice and data. The result is a wireless ‘bubble’ around the user; devices only connect when inside the bubble, and from the outside their signals cannot be seen. NFMI is invisible to Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, does not cause interference in other devices or networks, and NFMI can even be used to provide wireless communications underwater and with deeply implanted medical devices.
“By integrating NFMI across the breadth of its product lines, David Clark has demonstrated that it will continue to lead the world with communications accessories designed to meet the needs of the most demanding customers, and that they have prepared for the arrival of the Internet of Things in each of its market segments,” said Dr. Michael Abrams, CEO of FreeLinc Technologies.
