Why would anyone still want to use "old fashioned" communications systems these days? It’s an obvious question now the world and his wife seem to own network-based cellphones. Well, the need to have a network that is in full working order at all times, for one, explains why walkie-talkies aren’t likely to bite the dust any time soon. Workers on oil rigs, soldiers on foreign territory, expedition parties, medical staff in large hospitals, and many others besides all make good use of these simple, reliable and secure communication devices. This explains the need for ongoing efforts to develop better and especially smaller devices, as the premiere of the innovative ROLLTS WEARABLE RADIO S1/E1 at CeBIT 2016 shows.
The ROLLTS WEARABLE RADIO, the world’s most compact and lightweight digital full-duplex, three-way voice communication system, currently uses two different components. Its extremely compact S1 speaker module, which weighs just 38 grams (1.34 ounces), is a standalone, two-way, push-to-talk transmitter that is perfect for communicating with its partner at the touch of a button. With approx. 120 hours of talk time or 1,000 hours on standby and a range of up to three kilometers, it’s a bit more powerful than the even smaller 16-gram E1 earpiece. Even so, the E1 provides 32 hours’ talk time or 240 hours’ standby on a single charge and has a range of two kilometers. Both modules boast extremely clear sound and use the same frequency-hopping privacy technology and integrated AES-256 encoding.
