Paging systems are everywhere. You may have seen them in schools, businesses, hospitals or factories. It is a common system that we use for mass notification in a large, spacious area. Traditionally, businesses use analog paging systems, which are proprietary, inflexible and not easily managed. Nowadays, more and more organizations are switching to an IP paging system.

What is IP Paging?

Different from a traditional analog paging system, IP paging is a more powerful version of the analog notification system that can be combined with your VoIP phone system and data networks. With an IP paging system, you will be able to increase efficiency significantly and better utilize the technology you already have in place.


How Can I Benefit From Using an IP Paging System?

We know you might not be excited about changing your existing paging system that has been there forever, however, the benefits you can get from installing an IP paging system will significantly outweigh what you’ve sacrificed and make your organization more competitive.

A properly installed IP paging system will allow you to quickly communicate with your mobile workers and will lessen hold times for internal and external calls. It is also more reliable than an analog system. Most IP paging systems can be powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE), which receives power via your network switches. By using uninterruptible power sources for your network switches, your IP paging will operate even when the power is down. See below for some other popular benefits of having an IP paging system:

  • Shared network infrastructure
  • Lower installation and implementation costs
  • Seamless integration into existing networks including legacy analog wiring
  • Simple installation and configuration
  • Scalable to intercoms and paging stations – locally, regionally or globally
  • Remote control and simple end-point expansion in intercom systems
  • Software based zone management in paging systems

IP Security Systems

VoIP is an excellent choice that a lot of business people are familiar with.  CyberData was a leader when the time came, and with their nearly 40 years of experience, they know how to integrate IP technology into existing security systems.  These systems are ideal for system networks already in place, or even for existing analog systems.  If there was an existing analog door strike, CyberData products are made to replace an old box with a new network box, and then the user sets up as expected. CyberData is very confident about their products offering free technical support to users and they handle all their 2 year warranty work, so you’re dealing with the company directly.

Recently CyberData has released several new VoIP products and updated several existing and favorable devices such as the CyberData 011214 Keypad Outdoor Intercom and the CyberData 011209 Indoor Emergency Intercom.  These intercoms, and more like them, offer varying functionalities including concurrent SIP and Multicast, adaptive full duplex voice, emergency phone capabilities, mass notification, peer-to-peer capabilities, door closure, auto provisioning support, and more.


CyberData knows their users are concerned about tampering, and that’s why they’ve incorporated new tamper alert notifications and Open-Door event notifications into their products.  From a web GUI, the administrator can program the system to alert if someone is trying to pry into the outdoor intercoms, or to alert if the door has been open longer than your predetermined amount of time, such as if someone stuck a rock in it for their buddies to come in.  Also, in noisy areas such as factory floors or warehouses, call notifications can trigger a SIP-enabled CyberData 011087 IP Strobe to signal when the intercom or phone needs to be answered.
