Cisco News - Singlewire Software Releases InformaCast Basic Paging with Cisco
By Nathesh, TMCnet Contributor
Singlewire Software, a developer of network-centric notification software for emergency communication and IP paging, stated that its InformaCast Basic Paging will be bundled and shipped along with Cisco (News - Alert) Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) 9.1 and Cisco Business Edition 6000.
According to Singlewire, the InformaCast is an emergency notification solution that allows one to simultaneously send an audio stream and text message to multiple Cisco IP phones, IP speaker endpoints, computer desktops, and overhead paging systems.
Singlewire is said to be a Preferred Solution Developer in the UC category of the Cisco Developer Network, and reportedly completed the interoperability verification testing required by Cisco.
The bundled offering will have InformaCast either in basic mode or advanced mode. With the Basic mode, one can make the phone-to-phone live audio paging available for all CUCM users to a maximum single group size of 50 Cisco IP phones simultaneously.
The advanced mode is for customers who demand additional functionality.
Cisco Unified Communications (News - Alert) Manager is an enterprise-class IP telephony call-processing system that provides traditional telephony features as well as mobility, presence, preference and conferencing services.
Now with the newly announced InformaCast Advanced Notification and Cisco CUCM bundle, all CUCM users operating on version 8.5 and greater have the option of emergency notifications built into their environment, and by buying a subscription license from Singlewire, to avail further advanced features.
Ken Bywaters, executive vice president for product development at Singlewire Software commented, “Cisco CUCM users will immediately realize the benefit of a basic paging solution now included with their Cisco IP phone system. When emergency notification is needed, the advanced features of InformaCast can be unlocked and implemented in a matter of minutes.”
Mike Sanders, general manager at Netech Corporation added, “InformaCast is a proven solution for delivering paging and emergency notification to organizations of any size. This agreement is a big win for any organization that currently has Cisco CUCM installed as their phone system and wants to implement or improve their paging and emergency notification capabilities.”
