Ascom teleCARE IP was introduced last year to the market. This is theplatform to branch out from, a solid foundation to build new features andinnovations on. Now the next step has come; with VoIP. This new voicecommunication feature will make everyday life for hospital staff even moreconvenient. Communication is done while on the move, by means of Ascom DECTor VoWiFi wireless handsets. Conversation is possible between patient andstaff, and naturally also between the staff themselves. All communication isdone over the LAN using VoIP and SIP clients. Using the LAN makes it possibleto connect multiple sites to one large united site.
"To create a truly future proof environment with solid communicationsolutions for our customers is one of the most important tasks we got," saysJan Ringenier, Product Manager at Ascom. He continues, "With VoIP thehealthcare sector can benefit from reducing communication and infrastructureexpenses by routing phone calls over existing data networks and avoidduplicate network systems. The Ascom teleCARE IP system is highly secure inoperation and makes it possible to reuse the existing infrastructure, whichmeans less investment for the hospital."
