Robust, Secure Remote Access to any FLEX-6000 – Operate from Anywhere
Simple Click connect. It’s that simple. SmartLinkTM is designed from the ground up to make operating your radio remotely quick and simple. Anyone who has operated their HF station remote before will tell you that while it’s possible, there are a lot of moving parts, extra devices to buy, and lots of pieces to setup. With SmartLink, you use existing SmartSDR™ implementations on Windows®, iOS®, and Maestro™ and simply select your radio at a remote location and begin operating. What could be simplier?
Affordable With SmartLink, there is nothing else to buy. Everything is included with SmartSDR. While other solutions require the purchase of expensive radio front panels, interface boxes and network hardware, SmartLink works on what you have now. Have a Windows laptop with Internet access? You’re set. Have an iPad or iPhone already running SmartSDR for iOS*? You’re set. Own a Maestro from FlexRadio? It’s all included with SmartSDR.
High Performance The FLEX-6000 Series was designed from the ground up to be an Internet radio. When the FLEX-6000 was introduced in 2013, seamless remote was a promise FlexRadio made to the amateur community and we are delivering on that promise.
What makes a high-peformance remote radio solution? One that provides the same high-quality data to the operator while remote as it does while operating in the shack; and does it with minimal bandwidth usage. By minimizing bandwidth and preserving the best-in-class graphical interface of SmartSDR, you have a winning combination that lets you fish out the DX or operate casually just like you were in front of your radio.
While carrying a Maestro anywhere and operating with it is truly a joy, you may find yourself traveling or away from the shack with just an iPhone, iPad or Windows computer. Need to work DX from the grocery store? Done. From a buiness trip? Done. From a family vacation? Done. SmartLink’s flexibility ensures that it’s available wherever you are.
Infinitely Expandable With SmartLink, the sky is the limit. Today, SmartLink offers seamless remote operation. No matter where you are, if there is Internet, your radio is there with you. Using a remote solution designed by the leader in Software Defined Radio means that you will continue to stay up to date with the latest features and capabilities throughout the life of your radio. FlexRadio Systems is dedicated to bringing the most innovative radio capabilities to their customers through convenient software delivery on the most advanced SDR platform available in the amateur world.
Secure SmartLink is built on a secure foundation using today’s most advanced Internet protocols. By using authentication services, SmartLink ensures that only you or those you authorize can operate your radio remotely.
