Skokie, IL (PRWEB) March 29, 2006
Rauland-Borg, a leader in communications and media management solutions for K-12 schools, has published “Safety Through Communications”, a 15-page report on the impact of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in K-12 school life safety applications. The white paper, authored by noted VoIP expert Gary Audin, is being made available free of charge to schools and school districts throughout the United States.
According to the author, “There is confusion in the K-12 community about what VoIP is and its advantages over legacy systems in school safety. Sadly, tragic events in the past several years have accelerated the need for reliable and effective communications, especially in our nation’s schools. That was really the genesis for this white paper -- to explain, in simple terms, VoIP basics and its applications for school communications.”
“Safety Through Communications” is a straightforward, non-technical publication that takes the reader through a basic discussion of VoIP applications for K-12 schools. It covers network, hardware and software considerations and includes life safety scenarios in which VoIP offers specific solutions. It is written for individuals in K-12 schools -- from educators and school superintendents to IT managers and physical plant managers -- that are responsible for school safety, communications and telephony.
“We commissioned this publication to help our customers successfully navigate through the truths and the misconceptions about VoIP as it applies to school communications systems,” noted Stacie Dinse, Product Manager for Rauland-Borg’s Telecenter VI system. “It’s been very well received, so It only made sense to offer it to a wider audience. We’re hoping that it will help to educate individual schools and school districts.”
