If you deploy VoIP solutions, you’re used to creating customized networks to help customers users communicate, be more productive, and work more efficiently. Recently, companies around the world have also started to utilize Wi-Fi technology more and more to achieve this same goal.

If you're use to deploying VoIP, Wi-Fi is a natural addition to add to your offering – and one that your customers will soon be looking for. In this blog post, we’ll go over some of the crossovers and similarities between Wi-Fi and VoIP and why you should add Wi-Fi networking to your offering.
2020 is here, and sometimes it looks like communication and collaboration platforms used in healthcare are not keeping up with the times. According to a study, nearly 80 percent of hospitals still use pagers and a survey showed that almost 52% of physicians said that these devices are one of their most significant sources of frustration. Pagers have existed since the 1950s, and because they work on a much higher frequency than cell phones, they allow doctors to be reachable despite x-ray proof walls and poor cell phone coverage, so it seems like pagers will still hang around at least for a few more years, but... how can we get healthcare professionals better communicated?
Deploying K-12 Communication Networks
A communication network is one of the most vital pieces of infrastructure for any educational institution. Parents, teachers, administration, and sometimes even students rely on this network to stay informed and productive.

How one feature enhances facility communications
Education campuses, hotels, commercial buildings, hospitals, and large office complexes are all able to streamline communications and security by paging an entire network or group of devices. Adding an intercom or paging solution to your deployment enables users to take advantage of facility-wide communications. However, sometimes this paging system is used by multiple departments and users. This high demand on the paging system could cause critical pages to be delayed or go completely unheard. Multicast paging helps solve this dilemma.
