Power management company Eaton today announced that its Cooper Notification business has introduced a holistic line of Internet Protocol (IP) network-based Mass Notification Systems (MNS). The newest solution from the company’s ALERiTY line of unified interoperable platform offers WAVES over IP (WoIP) for emergency communications.
“Our advanced IP-based MNS furthers our commitment of developing innovative solutions that provide reliability, ease-of-use and interoperability,” said Scott Hearn, president, Eaton’s Cooper Notification business. “For customers, this provides a one-click solution that can launch critical messages across all three layers of MNS: in-building, wide-area and distributed recipient. For our partners, the system is easy to install and maintain with the ability to remotely monitor and upgrade the system.”
Through advanced programming interfaces, ALERiTY offers full-featured, bi-directional interoperability, integrating with other systems, software and devices for enhanced situational awareness. Examples include fire alarm control panels (FACP), chemical sensors, detection systems and paging systems.
The WoIP mass notification network is comprised of a collection of secure, robust and reliable Ethernet communication devices, IP Communicators (IPC). This enterprise system solution allows organizations to leverage their Local Area Network (LAN) or utilize the IPC private network to send audible, visual and data messages. Through Ethernet radios, a wireless solution is also available.
This systems also allows multiple sites and facilities located anywhere in the world to be tied together through a Web-client Graphical User Interface (GUI) for managing global notification and system monitoring. The system redundancy allows multiple users to be simultaneously logged into the system for additional points of command and control.
