THE ASCOM VOWIFI COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
The Ascom VoWiFi system consists of market-specific WLAN
handsets, a robust messaging system and supports IEEE 802.11
a/b/g/n standards. This professional communication solution
may be integrated with IP-PBXs via a direct SIP interface or with
TDM PBX’s via Ascom VoIP Gateways.
We asked nurses and clinicians what they wanted from a communication tool, then used their feedback to design the Ascom Myco handset. Offering an IP54 rating, top display, barcode scanning and a rear camera, this hardened Android device is much more than a typical smartphone. The Ascom i62 handset features programmable soft keys, a four-way navigation pad, hands-free speaker mode, inverted text option and one touch alarm button, in addition to user profiles, extended battery life and remote programming.
The Ascom Unite Messaging Suite provides select Ascom handsets with two-way messaging, user originated data and mobile alarms. The message is instantly displayed allowing quick and accurate response. All messaging activities are recorded in the Ascom Communications Server providing real-time activity logging for complete audit trail records and reporting.
T1 VoIP Gateway
The T1 VoIP Gateway enables seamless integration with a circuit-switched PBX or public-switched telephone network (PSTN) to provide high quality voice communication between the handsets and any other telephone. Containing two T1 or E1 interfaces, the VoIP Gateway supports QSIG, NI-2, 5ESS, DMS100 ISDN and E&M CAS protocols, in addition to performing handset registration and call routing to optimize channel usage. The T1 VoIP Gateway is designed for enterprise environments and contains no moving components. Gateways can be stacked to optimize the grade of service to the PBX, while maintaining a single browser-based management application.
Analog VoIP Gateway
The Analog VoIP Gateway enables seamless integration with a circuit-switched PBX or public-switched telephone network (PSTN) to provide high quality voice communication between the handsets and any other telephone. Containing 8 analog, FXO interfaces, the Analog VoIP Gateway provides a cost effective interface for small to medium enterprise environments with highly advanced call features.
The Analog VoIP Gateway is compact and designed for high availability with its embedded appliance architecture, no moving components, and powered by Asterisk Business Edition software. It provides an intuitive web browser interface to allow central management to branch offices. Gateways can be stacked, providing additional analog port interfaces when necessary.
Portable Device Manager
The Ascom PDM is a software application that provides firmware updates via a USB cradle or over-the-air. The PDM allows users to utilize any portable handset to access their personal configuration settings. Portable handset replacement is facilitated by the central storage of configuration information.
The Ascom VoWiFi solution supports various enterprise WLAN systems following IEEE standards. For optimum quality and feature support, WLAN products need to be certified with the system. Please contact an Ascom Regional Channel Manager for a list of certified WLAN systems.
As the world’s first VoWiFi handset operating on 802.11n network, the Ascom i62 is truly unique. It supports the deployment of voice over the network without degrading the performance of an existing .11n network capacity.
