New Q-Zone Subscription Service Rings In Courtesy System Options  

(CHARLOTTE, NC) --- Soon large enterprises will have an affordable solution to the problem of mobile phone disturbances.  BlueLinx, Inc., announces that its Q-Zone cell phone courtesy system will be available through a monthly subscription plan. 

Q-Zone is a location-based courtesy system that allows public venues to prevent interruptions from mobile phones and other wireless electronic devices. This
patent-pending system creates “quiet zones” in hotels, theaters, and meeting facilities by automatically lowering ring volumes while users are inside the zone. When users leave the zone, alert systems return to normal settings.  Q-Zone is based on Bluetooth™ wireless technology.

“Venue operators are looking for methods to control disruptions, but the initial costs can be an issue for larger enterprises with multiple sites,” said Mary Beth Griffin, BlueLinx executive vice president.  “By adding a subscription-based service, Q-Zone becomes an attractive solution for both large and small-scale enterprises.”

The subscription service will make use of existing cellular networks and be administered by carriers.  This structure allows providers to activate or deactivate the system remotely – lowering maintenance costs 

“By utilizing the existing cellular networks, we can provide our customers with an affordable solution to a recognized problem,” said Griffin.  “The new product has the added benefit of creating an entirely new market segment for wireless carriers as well as introducing a profitable application for them based on Bluetooth.”

Company officials expect the system to be fully operational within six months of widespread Bluetooth mobile phone offerings.  Pricing will be based on the number of Q-Zone nodes installed.

Bluetooth wireless technology is set to revolutionize the personal connectivity market by providing freedom from wired connections. It is a specification for a small form-factor, low-cost radio solution providing links between mobile computers, mobile phones and other portable and handheld devices, and connectivity to the Internet. The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), comprised of leaders in the telecommunications, computing, and network industries, is driving development of the technology and bringing it to market. The Bluetooth SIG includes promoter companies 3Com, Ericsson, IBM, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia and Toshiba, and more than 2400 adopter companies.
