The Education sector is a broad one, with multiple users and applications covering many different roles: from security and maintenance management, housekeeping and waste disposal to exam invigilators and student services, all of which need to be contactable and in contact 24/7. One of the common challenges to providing effective radio communications systems in this sector is that the school, college or university is campus-based across multiple sites in different locations, frequently with multi-storey buildings and underground parking.
Capcom’s solution to ensure 24/7 coverage in these ‘difficult to reach’ areas is to install a connected communications IP network based system with signal repeaters in critical areas, specifically identified to deliver a full range of facilities to manage staff efficiently. Facilities include: lone worker, emergency call, GPS and CCTV tracking and recording, voice calls and recording, text messaging in areas where noise is an issue and control room functionality which records all activity in the previous 24 hours, with data easily retrievable by management. This solution enables the most efficient and cost effective communications and operational systems for campus-based organisations, allowing even the largest and most widely distributed sites to be run smoothly and efficiently with minimum staff.
