To ease the migration of emergency communications equipment to IP, Talk-A-Phone Co. of Chicago introduces native VoIP 500-Series emergency phones that can be connected directly into existing routers and LAN infrastructure.
The new unit replaces the Talk-A-Phone 400-Series analog phone. Many custom faceplate sizes are available, allowing other manufacturer's analog phones to be easily upgraded to the VoIP 500-Series.
The phone's built-in Layer 2 switch allows other IP devices to be connected directly into the VoIP 500-Series phone, further enhancing IP-integration options.
As an added benefit, VoIP 500-Series emergency phones can be paged at high volume with WEBS Contact mass notification software, allowing emergency personnel to issue targeted alerts to any segment of a facility. The software automatically tests and verifies connectivity of VoIP 500-Series phones and sends e-mail alerts on failure detection.
