Voice-over Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) system for healthcare staff
integrates easily with existing voice and data networks and can interconnect with public networks
Voice-over Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) system for healthcare staff. A new Voice-over-WiFi (Wireless Fidelity) communications system that combines Voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology, wireless-enabled local area networks and VoIP handsets to provide organisations with complete staff mobility at a low cost, while ensuring high levels of reliability and security. The system offers an integrated personal alarm function, alert messaging, paging and voice telephony with access to a range of sophisticated communications services. The system includes the Ascom's i75 wireless VoWiFi handset, Portable Device Manager and Integrated Messaging Server as well as the VoIP gateway. These can be combined with third-party equipment such as WLAN access points, wireless switches and PBXs or IP-PBXs.The handset is a key part of the system. It is compact, robust and easy to use, designed for tough working environments. It not only provides voice telephony, but also offers text messaging and can interact with other internal business systems to deliver automated reminders and alerts. An in-built alarm system, represented by a thumb-sized button on the handset means that should it be necessary, users can summon assistance very easily. This is invaluable in sectors where a rapid response can be critical. The handset also has a built-in loudspeaker for hands-free calls. Furthermore, any unit can be used as a shared device. A simple log-in procedure recognises the users and loads their individual settings. Thanks to a virtual SIM, if a handset is lost, its functions can be quickly transferred to a replacement unit as all the user settings including menu, local phonebook and alarm features are stored on a central server.A choice of batteries offers from four hours talking and 40 hours stand-by to six hours talking to 60 hours on stand-by.
