Safe Campus Solution Improves Response Time in Emergency

School safety is a top concern of administrators in every district. 

Modern campuses are equipped with a variety of cameras, sensors and alarms to monitor activity across multiple facilities. Often these systems are overseen by a variety of staff in separate locations, so that an emergency event takes time to be communicated campus-wide. Knowing that every second counts in an emergency, Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise has developed its Safe Campus solution to facilitate response when a safety event arises at a school.

Most modern security systems are designed to provide notification in an emergency. Safe Campus provides mass notification procedures, too, and it addresses needs for integrated awareness as well as coordination and collaboration with emergency response teams.

Toshiba Corporation to "wind-down Telecommunication Systems Division business starting immediately" according to recent announcement posted on March 21st.

It was announced yesterday that Toshiba Corporation is dissolving it's Telecommunications System Division (TSD) to North America, Canada, and Mexico resellers effective May 22nd 2017.  Read the announcement

What does this mean for current TSD customers? Toshiba claims to honor warranty and maintenance obligations; however, their availability of hardware replacements for RMA's, EOL, and basic phone replacements are currently unclear.

What is the "good news" within this announcement?  According to TSD, early termination fees will be waived.  What does this mean for you?  That looking into new options, or alternative systems should be explored as soon as possible to ensure your not stuck with a technology that is un-supported in the coming months.  There is no telling when the clock will run out on the claimed obligations and un-supported technology is never a confidence booster for an organization trying to operate at highest efficiency.  

This is not only a burden on operations for an organization, but this is also an unexpected financial burden for all organizations currently on the Toshiba platform.  How can Dice Communications help?  By providing trade-in options for your current Toshiba systems for a migration to our Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise voice system.  With those trade-in's, Dice will be donating those used Toshiba systems overseas where the systems are still supported at no charge to the end user.   Our goal is to get the current Toshiba base of customers operating as normal as quickly as possible with little interruption to the day-to-day.  

Call us today to set up a time to review your current telecommunications landscape and let us assist you with a smooth transition to our best-in-class telecom platforms.
