AtlasIED IP-SM indoor wall / ceiling mount IP speakers with talkback leverage the VoIP Communication solution to extend tele-presence with enhanced audio for those environments where network-wide communication is desired and that require large speakers with high output to overcome high ambient noise areas or large spaces. AtlasIED IP-SM registers as a communication endpoint directly within InformaCast, and SA-Announce 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, & intercom, while leveraging the WAN/LAN Network Architecture. When used within a Cisco Environment, these same IP speakers 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 I8SM+ speakers can register as SIP devices directly to a SIP server or VoIP Communications Manager for critical alerts /public address applications and two-way communication. Ideal for Corporate Applications, Education Institutions, Entertainment Complexes, Industrial Facilities, Government Buildings, Healthcare Facilities, Houses of Worship, Transportation Hubs - anywhere critical alerts / public address needs exist, and prefer using a single enterprise-class communications platform. Features IP-SM indoor speakers are fitted with an 8" (205mm) coaxial speaker that is optimized for voice intelligibility. The grills for the IP-SM IP speakers are made of 18-gauge metal construction that provides security and durability in commercial applications. The baffle is finished in neutral white electrostatic powder coat and is packaged with all necessary mounting screws. IP-SM includes an omni directional subminiature, electret condenser microphone that is mounted behind the grille's steel perforation material adjacent to the speaker to allow two-way communication and/or monitoring from the speaker location to any PC or phone handset. All Atlas IP speakers consist of a factory assembled speaker, grill, and PCB amp/control board that is securely mounted to the rear of the grill. The IP-SM features include auto-provisioning and auto-registration. This is an easy and time-saving way to configure our IP speakers on your Voice VLAN, similar to a VoIP handset. By sitting on the same VLAN, both VoIP phones and IP speakers share the same Quality of Service (QoS) so communications are always secure and guaranteed Features include GPI/O ports offer trigger for intercom request, critical alert notification, or unified connectivity of third party systems.
