GetWireless, LLC takes first place at Rural Telecom Industry Expo 2013
Featuring AirTouch U250 SmartLinX
MINNETONKA – GetWireless, LLC was selected as one of 13 companies to participate in the Hot Technologies showcase at the NTCA/OPATSCO Rural Telecom Industry Expo ’13, and chose to feature the AirTouch U250 SmartLinX. GetWireless is proud to be the AirTouch distributor of this product to regional/rural Telcos.
The U250 SmartLinX connects to a landline and wireless router so that landline calls can be made using a Smartphone. The showcase display by GetWireless was designed to recreate how a U250 SmartLinX would be installed in a home and how the use of a Smartphone with the free AirTouch app installed can be used as a landline extension.
Acceptance into the Hot Technologies showcase was at the discretion of the EXPO Advisory Sub-council and NTCA/OPATSCO show management. The winners were picked based on level of innovation, usefulness, significance of improvement, relevance in the rural marketplace and creativity of display.
Mike Wyatt, Vice President of North American Sales indicated that AirTouch was very pleased with the recognition. “We are excited about receiving an award from the NCTA Rural Telecom Expo. The SmartLinX is an innovative device that connects a home (landline) to one’s Smartphone. The need for a landline continues today, and with SmartLinX technology we are able to provide a product that gives the consumer more ways to enjoy their landline service.”
The value of the U250 SmartLinX product to regional/rural Telcos is that it can be a unique customer retention tool as it allows customers to “keep the cord” when many customers are choosing to eliminate phone service via landline.
The U250 SmartLinX offers a variety of flexible features, making this an ideal value-added product for regional/rural Telco’s. They include:
- Access to Smartphone contacts for landline calling
- Conference and intercom with other paired Smartphones
- Receive cellular calls – even while using your Smartphone for landline calls
- Installs easily in minutes
- Works with all major Smartphone brands
- No internet connection needed
