The Plantronics CA12-CD-S been around and it’s been the standard for the last 15 years by dispatches as traffic controllers as it offers the Push To Talk (PTT) feature that allows the user to mute the mic while in a console and reactivate it by pressing a button. However as time goes by the new technology and new requirements makes this a now discontinued unit and with this it brings the new Poly CA22CD-SC and CA22CD-DC now to takes its place. The difference between the CA12CD-S and the new CA22CD family adapters is that now it offers a higher encryption on the DECT frequency, now it offers 256-AES encryption, also known as Military level FIPS 140-2 thanks to its new chip. The CA22CD family now offers a micro USB port in the back of the base, allowing the user to plug it to a computer using a micro USB to USB-A cable, so no more need of special adapters. One special note that we have to address to the CA22CD family is that the CA12CD-S parts such as batteries, remotes, cables or adapters are not backwards compatible with the new CA22CD family, so you will have to get new batteries and remotes. The only thing that old users of the CA12CD-S adapters can use with the new CA22CD family is your Plantronics corded headsets.
