ATLANTA, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), a global leader in wireless communications, today announced the Motorola CLS1450c Business Two-Way Radio with Digital 2.4 GHz Cordless Phone Capability. Designed to enable businesses to better manage both employees and customer needs, the CLS1450c is a simple, cost-effective, and versatile solution for today's fast-paced business environments. Seamlessly integrating a business two-way radio with digital 2.4 GHz cordless phone capability, the Motorola CLS1450c provides the ability to better fulfill customer requests. Easily switching back and forth between the integrated two-way radio and telephone functions provides a high level of communication versatility for fast-paced business environments. A perfect tool for managers who need to be mobile in a work environment, the CLS1450c lets managers take customer calls, while at the same time, alerting employees via the two-way radio function. Such rapid response capabilities ensure that model CLS1450c will be very much at home in any business environment. "At Motorola, we always look to respond to customer demand by providing products that manage as many needs as possible," said Motorola marketing communications manager, Rafael Rivera. "We aim for flexibility, mobility, and simplicity, and the CLS1450c is an excellent example of Motorola's commitment to its customers. It's hard to believe so much capability can be packed into such a small form factor, but Motorola understands its customers and works hard to supply them with products that fit their needs." With today's fast-paced and demanding business environment it is important to run a tight ship. The CLS1450c not only helps cut operational costs by reducing the number of communications devices needed for any business environment, but it also boasts no monthly fees or service contracts (FCC license required. Monthly bill for telephone service still applies). With 56 business exclusive frequencies, you can avoid hearing chatter from GMRS/FRS radios that feature frequencies intended for recreational use. Helping to eliminate wasted time and inefficient processes is simple with the one-to-one or group communication provided at the touch of a button. The expandable functionality allows up to four CLS1450c units to be designated to a single phone base (must be connected to an analog phone line). An unlimited number of business two-way radios can be used to communicate with the CLS1450c (must be set to a common frequency and code).
