Intercom & Overhead Paging

Lots of places such as schools, businesses, hospitals, and factories use mass notification paging systems.

IP Paging is a more powerful version of standard analog notification systems. IP Paging can be combined with your VoIP phone system and data networks. This is what’s known as IP convergence and it will significantly increase the efficiency of the technology you already have in place.

Traditional zoned paging systems are proprietary, inflexible, and not easily managed. Oh, and they don’t exactly play well with your new IP PBX either. IP Paging Systems, like anything else that is IP-based, offer much greater flexibility than their analog counterparts.

IP networking allows you to:

  • Converge all of your separate communication systems into a singular unit.
  • Greatly increase organizational efficiency.
  • Reduce the number of user-interface devices.

Targeted Messaging

The abilities of an IP Paging system are not limited like traditional systems. IP Paging is not only a common system for all public announcements and emergency alerts but it allows you to target messages to specific telephones, speakers, or areas of the building.

This is accomplished, for example, by the IP Paging system’s ability to assign public address speakers a unique address.

Don’t have paging? What are the benefits?

Having an efficient paging system may not be a top priority for most management teams but a properly installed system allows you to quickly communicate with your mobile workers and will lessen hold times for internal and external calls.

Also, being able to designate a particular zone for a page will emphasize to employees that they need to pay particular attention to that message. IP Paging systems are a great tool to improve the work flow of your organization which will also benefit your customer’s experience.
