The MC9090-G delivers voice and data services inside the four walls, while the MC9090-K/S extends voice and data to mobile workers inside the enterprise and out in the field.

Voice services:

Voice over WLAN (VoWLAN)
Voice over WWAN (VoWWAN)
Fixed Mobile Convergence (FMC)

Voice functionality (Windows Mobile only devices):

Peer-to-peer (direct device to device calls)
1-to-1 (device to device paging)
IP Telephony (extension of PBX desk phone functionality and cost-saving features)

Voice modalities:

Wired Headset
Bluetooth Headset

Voice-specific features:

Voice mode-related features:

  • Tap-to-toggle icon enables instant re-routing of audio between handset and speakerphone modes.
  • Front receiver and microphone supports handset use.
  • Back loudspeaker supports speakerphone mode.
  • Call notification by ringer (audio), LED (visual) and vibration (touch) function enables users to select the mode most suitable as the working environment situation changes.. For example, when salespeople on the retail floor are with a customer, vibrate mode eliminates any perceived interruption by the customer yet allows the worker to still receive incoming calls.
  • Flexibility to choose the headset style that is most comfortable: 2.5mm standard headset jack provides support for headset mode and enables use of standard phone headsets; Bluetooth supports wireless headsets for hands-free safety.

Voice quality-related features:

  • Mechanically and acoustically designed to deliver outstanding voice quality.
  • Intel® XScale™ 624MHz processor provides the power to support simultaneous voice communications and data capture/applications. Users can place a call to obtain needed information while scanning bar codes or entering information into a business application.
  • Dual-band 802.11a/b/g provides the flexibility to segregate voice traffic to 802.11a and data to 802.11b/g for improved voice quality and availability.
  • SIP-based partner applications are supported, which work in conjunction with the wireless LAN to ensure quality of service (QoS) for voice calls.
  • Acoustic Echo Cancel (AEC) eliminates the annoying echo which often occurs in speakerphone mode.
  • Smart power management ensures ample battery power for full shift (application dependent), allowing the device to remain in a low-power mode without missing voice calls or data messages.
  • Fast Wi-Fi roaming via unique and patented Motorola features ensures little or no interruption during VoWLAN calls over Motorola wireless LANs. For example, pre-emptive roaming and load balancing work to ensure users roam to the next access port before connection quality erodes.
  • Designed to TIA-810A standard for interoperability and performance for seamless integration with your existing telecommunications equipment.

A full selection of standard and vertical market voice and data accessories, including:

  • Keypad options: 28-, 33-, 43- and 53-key; (53-key terminal emulation – 5250, 3270, VT on MC909X-G only)
  • Belts, holsters and hand straps provide convenient 'wearability'
  • Wide variety of cradles for charging devices and batteries
  • Mobile printers
  • Snap-on GPS
  • Magnetic stripe reader for a wide variety of on-the-spot transactions, from executing purchases to swiping a customer loyalty card to view information to best serve the customer
