Avaya Safe School Solution
The new SIP-enabled endpoints are capable of powering electronic door locks, emergency call buttons, strobe lights, paging systems, and video cameras. Today, the great advantage for schools is that their networking, communications, and security solutions can all be powered by the same resilient and reliable Avaya technology backbone.
There's always an interest in making schools safer for our children. In fact, recent legislation in a number of countries now require school administrators to upgrade their security measures. You may already be familiar with Avaya's work in schools. We currently have our communications and networking solutions in thousands of schools worldwide.
Now get a exciting partnership with Dev Connect partner Algo Communications. Were expanding our functionality into security solutions built on existing, reliable Avaya infrastructure. The purpose of the video is to give you a brief overview of those security solutions. Many of Avaya's communication products are built on sanction initiation protocol, or SIP.
SIP can power many different things like internet enabled phones and video conferencing units. However, what you might not realize is that SIP is also capable of powering a whole range of solutions. Solutions like security devices. Let's take a look at the five major types of SIP-enabled security devices available through Avaya and Dev Connect partner Algo Communications Solutions.
Electronic door locks, emergency call buttons, strobe lights, paging systems, and video cameras. Let's start with physical access. Avaya solution offers three types of algo sip enabled door locks. An audio only door lock, a one way video door lock, and a two way video door lock. With audio only door locks, visitors press a brightly illuminated button outside the door, which automatically dials a preprogrammed number inside the school.
Perhaps an office administrator's desk phone. The security officer's mobile phone or a school administrator's PC or tablet device. Visitors identify themself and the school official can open the door remotely using the keypad on their device. Video enabled electronic door locks work in much the same way. Except, they provide the additional level of visual security if required.
Emergency call buttons allow students or teachers to press a brightly illuminated button, immediately initiating a two-way voice conversation with staff. Another key element in campus environment is broadcast alerting. Using SIP-enabled strobe lights, either inside or outside of classrooms can be programmed to flash during school emergencies. This can occur before an all-school broadcast or after someone presses an emergency call button.
Auto-alerting through existing paging systems allow the broadcast of daily messages, emergency notifications, or music. A problem found in many older schools, is that the paging system is usually analog, and require proprietary equipment. The new SIP enabled paging systems offered by Avaya can easily transform these existing analog paging systems, into modern SIP enabled endpoints.
These repages systems can be either wall or ceiling mountain. This paging's solution allow for two-way communication and during the emergencies. School administrators or police can access the ambient audio in a specific area or class room to discretely observe and evaluate the threat level of an incident in progress.
Finally, network video cameras, supported on top of Avaya's ethernet router switch technology, provide valuable situational awareness of an incident, and are accessible from any browser-enabled device. Today, the great advantage for schools Is that their networking, communications, and security solutions can all be powered tomorrow by the same resilient and reliable Avaya technology backbone.
This technology stack means that teachers, students, And staff have a single system to learn. For IT administrators, a single stack technology solution deploys faster and is easier to maintain. Representing a significant cost savings to any school infrastructure.
