Education Zones Examples

GLOBALCOM.EDU is an entire network-based ecosystem of unified communication technologies that sets a new standard in interoperability.

An entire school's paging, audio, video, digital signage, and emergency systems can communicate together under one solution - even off-campus and district-wide.

The core results are Improved Daily Communications with better collaboration and productivity. This same system is also the Best and Most Proven Mass Notification & Emergency Platform.

Implementing a GLOBALCOM.EDU system is made simple with factory pre-loaded settings that are optimized for educational facilities.

The devices come configured and ready to operate. You save time and money, while gaining all the system advantages from the start.

Pre-Loaded Factory Templates
Easy Adoption with Pre-Loaded Factory Templates

Supports a wide array of networked and analog endpoint devices.

GLOBALCOM.EDU transforms an existing VoIP telco system into a wide audience coverage system and adds levels of world-class automation technology.

With this integration, you can easily communicate with the exact audience you are targeting.

Expands VoIP capability
Live & Pre-Recorded Paging

Live or pre-recorded paging can be broadcast campus wide or into specified zones.

Reduce time and effort by making routine announcements automated by pre-recording them and placing them on a very customizable time schedule.

Bells and tones are synced to your system clock. With the time scheduler, it is easy to match your facility’s daily schedule needs, plus support for half-days, assembly days, and teacher in-service workdays. Tones may also be triggered by contact closures._

Automated & Scheduled Bells and Tone
Hands-Free, Full-Duplex Communication

AtlasIED IP enabled speakers used for announcements and bells can also provide hands-free, full-duplex intercom anywhere across the campus.

Campus zones requiring live sound reinforcement, such as indoor & outdoor athletics, performance halls, and lecture halls, can be monitored and supervised within the GLOBALCOM.EDU environment. This means that priority messaging can reach the venue, and audio from the event can be fed out to other areas of the campus.

GLOBALCOM.EDU supports Audio over Ethernet (AoE) with the two most common protocols - Audinate Dante™ and CobraNet®.

This provides real-time digital audio for high-fidelity, low-latency professional audio. Because of the fidelity and latency constraints, Audio over Ethernet systems generally do not utilize audio data compression. AoE systems use a much higher bit rate (typically 1 Mbit per channel) and much lower latency (typically less than 10 milliseconds) than VoIP.

Supports Dante™ and CobraNet®
The Same System Provides the BEST and MOST Proven Emergency Evacuation Platform
Support Lockdown Protocols

When seconds count, GLOBALCOM®.EDU ensures the right people are immediately informed when an emergency trigger happens from multiple sources.

Our pre-recorded messages and visual notifications are broadcast automatically across the facility and calmly lead everyone to safety. Be prepared with an AtlasIED Smart Automation Solution.

This software plugin provides system administrators with an immediate visual method to centrally monitor a situation when a critical alert happens anywhere in the school campus. Once triggered, it sends an automated alert notification to all administrators, security personnel, or operations staff and displays a “S.A.F.E. Campus Console” of all defined lock-down areas.

The S.A.F.E. Campus Console shows all zones in an “Alert” status. Simultaneously, S.A.F.E. discretely sends an automated notification to all faculty personnel requesting them to respond if their zone is safe or not. As each of the faculty members responds, the Campus Console will show statuses changing from Alert (as Red) to SAFE (as Green). Once emergency responders arrive, they can immediately view which zones within the school are still in alert and which ones have been secured.

Smart Alerts for Emergencies
Easy System Access for First Responders

GLOBALCOM®.EDU provides system override capability. This allows an authorized on-site or off-site emergency responder to take control of the system and broadcast live announcements.

GLOBALCOM®.EDU Unifies All Zones Within A School Campus

GLOBALCOM®.EDU manages where media will be broadcast throughout an entire school facility and also allows messaging across a wide-area network to the entire school district enabling entire system control and supervision.
