Solution connects fixed and mobile devices, strips away “complexity of IP”
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, March 18, 2013 — IP audio and control specialist Barix heads to ISC West with a new IP paging solution that allows end users and integrators to set up multi-point systems within minutes.
The plug-and-play solution combines fixed and mobile paging to extend reach and capability, while removing configuration hassles typically associated with IP. This ensures that schools, hospitals, office buildings and other commercial and public facilities can be up and running quickly instead of configuring IP addresses, servers and ports for receiving devices.
Importantly, the dedicated Barix Paging firmware enables the paging master to automatically identify all zones and Barix IP hardware on the network, including other paging stations and receivers. Furthermore, a Barix iOS paging app enables iPhones and iPads as paging devices — cleanly integrating the mobile capability into the overall solution.
“The Barix IP Paging solution retains the flexibility of IP without the complexity of IP, simplifying connections and removing headaches for businesses and security professionals,” said Johannes G. Rietschel, CEO and Founder of Barix AG. “We’re essentially delivering a solution where customers can plug in cables, connect loudspeakers and talk.”
The Barix IP Paging solution includes all pre-configured hardware, including paging masters and receiving devices equipped with the IP Paging firmware. Complete solutions can scale to the end customer’s needs, with no limits to the number of paging zones. The company’s two-way VoIP devices can be used at receiving points to enable intercom capability over the same network, and integrated amplifier options are available to further reduce costs and infrastructure.
Barix will showcase various hardware options and mobile capability for its IP Paging solution at ISC West (Booth 16138), taking place April 10-12 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas.
