AtlasIED IP-to-analog gateways are perfect for connecting your unified communication platform to off network analog third party systems, including, but not limited to, sending notifications to analog overhead paging, trigger or be triggered by access-control systems, assist to fire alarm, and two-way audio support for video-surveillance, simply plug and play.
AtlasIED IP-ZCM registers as a communication endpoint directly within InformaCast, GCK, and Syn-Apps' Revolution advanced notification applications, supporting audio broadcast to enhance physical security while improving day-to-day communications through advanced alerting, bell schedules, pre-recorded, & scheduled announcements, while leveraging the WAN or LAN network architecture.
The IP-ZCM bridges the network to analog world utilizing CAT5e cable to transmit audio broadcasts from the advanced notification applications to analog loudspeakers or amplifiers. The integrated amplifier can deliver up to 25-watts of total power to loudspeakers at either 70.7V or 8?. The line output can be used to connect a commercial power amplifier that can power larger numbers of loudspeakers allowing the system to cover large areas like quads, athletic fields, parking lots, or other common areas that are too large to be handled by a standard IP loudspeakers.
When used within a Cisco environment, this IP-to-Analog gateway from AtlasIED can join Cisco's Unified Survivable Remote Site Telephony (SRST) as a supported device within SRST endpoint Architecture. Cisco's SRST provides remote location call-processing redundancy when access to the centralized Cisco Unified Communications Manager is interrupted because of a WAN outage. The ability of LAN communication between any combination of phones and speakers is particularly critical during an emergency (which may be the actual cause of the WAN outage).
Where 3rd party notification applications are not required, the IP-ZCM IP-to-Analog gateways can register as SIP devices directly to a SIP server or VoIP Communications Manager for critical alerts /public address applications.
