May 12, 2022 by Ying-Hui Chen

How To Deploy An Emergency Notification System Without A VoIP System

May 6, 2022 by Ying-Hui Chen

Can you deploy emergency notification endpoints into an environment without a Phone system? The answer is yes! 

While phone systems make setup extremely easy and provide an extension number to call, they are not necessary; they are a convenience, not a requirement.

How to deploy an IP Call Button without a Phone System

Multicast allows you to send messages to a variety of CyberData endpoints from a single device; all without a phone system. Plus, compared to a traditional notification system, the costs are much lower with CyberData’s endpoints!

When a CyberData call button is depressed, a few things will happen:

  • A user uploaded audio message will be sent to all the Loudspeaker Amplifiers connected to the Network
  • The message will then repeat for a duration set on the device web interface
  • The Loudspeaker Amplifier will play the audio and an attached strobe kit will blink for the duration of the message in a color and blink rate set in the web interface.

The certification means that a product has been tested in numerous configurations with a diverse sample of other devices to validate interoperability with other CERTIFIED Wi-Fi equipment operating in the same frequency band.

Why Should I Choose Wi-Fi 6?

The interest in Wi-Fi 6 is a global improvement that users will experience in increasingly common situations where many devices are connected to the same network. There will also be an improvement in lower latency and security.
