Education is at the forefront of technology, they teach it and they use it! From K-12 to Tafe to Universities, all education facilities are using technology to enhance the way students are being taught. Alloy offer a large range of products ranging from infrastructure equipment to hands on equipment used by both students and teachers to help bring today's education solutions into a world of their own.
Education today continues to develop and the way that we are being educated is changing. More and more education facilities are electing to offer a way for students to gain access to course materials online and allowing them to remotely communicate with their educators. Video Conferencing is playing a major role in this move, allowing students to talk face to face with their educators without having to leave the comfort of their own home.
As well as distance learning, video conferencing is allowing professionals to talk face to face with students without the need to leave their work place.
VoIP Telephone Systems
The costs associated with installing and maintaining a traditional PABX have long been exhausted for schools. The increasing need for parents to communicate with teachers, the heightened security risks associated with schools and the need to enhance school safety are driving the need for more sophisticated networking and telephony infrastructure.
It's hard to find a school these days that is not running a data network, making the move to a VoIP telephony solution is the next step.
IP Telephony adds many advantages:
- Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
- Use existing data infrastructure
- Lower costs allow IP Phones to be installed for every class room
- Improve productivity and communication with UC clients, Voicemail to email etc.
- Integrate existing or new Paging and Emergency announcement equipment
- Integrate Video capabilities including security cameras
VoIP Paging Systems
All schools have the need for paging and emergency notifications systems. As schools migrate their telephone systems to VoIP, the need to integrate existing analogue paging systems or to upgrade existing paging systems is required. Cyberdata have a large range of products to help integrate existing analogue paging infrastructure to SIP to allow integration with VoIP products. Alternatively they have a large range of SIP enabled speakers that can be used to replace older paging equipment.
As networks become more data intensive and the load on networks grow, we need to ensure our infrastructure is suited for the task at hand. With switching solutions ranging from the classroom to the data centre, Alloy have products suited for your requirements.
As traditional phone systems are replaced with VoIP, CCTV security cameras all move to IP and Wireless Access Points become a necessity, PoE switches play a major role in minimising unnecessary powering expenses on schools. Alloy have a large range of PoE switches, allowing easy configuration and implementation of your PoE devices.
