Wireless Link visits Icom Japan

Wireless Link Technologies, Inc. technical engineers successfully finished and passed the Icom IP Advanced Radio System Technical Service Training Course last October 7 – 9, 2014 held at Wakayama Icom Inc. in Wakayama, Japan.

Wireless Link, distributor of Icom in the Philippines, together with distributors from Myanmar, Vietnam, Thailand and China also visited the Icom Headquarters in Osaka, Japan during their five-day stay at the said city.

The training focused on the Icom’s newest IP Advance Radio System, or commonly referred to as IP100H. The said license-free IP Radio enables full-duplex communication over a wireless local area network (WLAN). This has been also tested to work seamlessly with Ubiquiti Networks UniFi Enterprise System, a WiFi Enterprise system distributed by Wireless Link as well.

The training also tackled the integration of Analog Radios, Icom Digital Advance System (IDAS) Radios, IP100H and IP Phones.  Migration to Digital System has been proven to be cost-effective as the old analog two-way radios can still be integrated into the new digital system.

Mariah Carey Struggling during The Elusive Chanteuse Tour

What happened Mariah Carey? Is this the reason why you no longer sing live? Your voice is not in condition; sounding tired and defenseless.

Should I still watch your concert in Manila this October 28 if this the performance you will give?

The video of Mariah Carey circulating online which showed how she struggled belting her biggest hits and forgetting some of the lyrics has been taken down already.

Mariah Carey's Elusive Chanteuse Tour started in Tokyo Japan last October 4 and has been getting negative reviews both from Japanese Fans and Online viewers. Same negative reviews have been coming out after her tour in Korea the week after.

For true fans, bad performance of their idol won't make them love her less. Here is another video I found.
