AtHoc-Cisco Emergency Mass Notification Partnership
Available from AtHoc, Inc.
AtHoc’s innovative net-centric emergency mass notification solution leverages an organization’s most pervasive asset: the IP network. When integrated with the Cisco Unified Communications Manager (CUCM), AtHoc IWSAlerts Unified Notification Server (UNS) transforms the IP network into a comprehensive, enterprise-class, bi-directional alert system.
Through a unifying Web-based console, operators can instantly reach a mass audience as well as targeted individuals and groups from any connected computer to all supported Cisco IP phone speakers and displays. This solution enables the alert recipient’s response to be communicated to the operator, providing real-time reports for rapid accountability.
Through this integrated system, the organization can leverage their Cisco VoIP technology to effectively trigger, manage, track, and control the emergency notification process, resulting in a seamless solution that transforms all Cisco IP phones into an audio/visual indoor public address system.
When integrated with CUCM, AtHoc IWSAlerts provides:
• Predefined tones and prepackaged image library indicate levels of emergencies
• Silent “Panic” buttons
• Predefined and configurable scenarios
• Remote webcam view on Cisco IP phone display
• High-delivery throughput
• and more…
The AtHoc-Cisco collaboration achieves a critical life safety mass notification solution and has been successfully deployed among major high-profile organizations.
