COBS adds a virtual IP-DECT Server to the portfolio

unnamed

Traditionally, DECT servers are an additional piece of hardware that must be included in any DECT mobility deployment. However, COBS has just released a unique software-only virtual IP-DECT server. The virtual-DECT server enables greater flexibility and scalability for DECT deployments, increases efficiency and reduces costs. 

Four benefits of a virtual IP-DECT Server

1. Single Common Point of Control for Multisite Enterprises
Centralizing virtual IP-DECT mobility networks provides a single common point of control that conforms to enterprise IT security standards and can be centrally configured, managed, and monitored for a reliable and future-proof network solution. Our new Virtual-DECT solution features a fast and secure web portal for administration, configuration and maintenance making it simpler than ever to manage large DECT deployment across multiple locations.

2. Quick, Virtual Installation
Software-only IP-DECT servers enable fast, virtual installation, can be deployed as a virtual appliance on existing hypervisor environments. This eliminates the need for separate hardware platforms, increasing efficiency and reducing costs.

3. Easily Scale DECT Deployments
The introduction of virtual IP-DECT servers significantly improves the scalability of DECT mobility deployments, now enabling projects in multi building campuses with up to 100,000 users. As a result, large distributed enterprises can finally realize the benefits of simplified DECT deployments.

4. Seamless Integration with Existing Systems
COBS virtual-DECT Server seamlessly integrates with all major UC/UCaaS SIP call control platforms and third-party applications without requiring advanced integration project saving time and reducing costs. The introduction of the virtual IP-DECT server responds specifically to the needs of enterprises that are consolidating their IT environments and enables businesses to scale their mobile networks without changing their existing hardware or security policies.

Safe Zone - in collaboration with ParCom  

Imagine working in a risk exposed environment. For example, in a prison, psychiatric care facility or perhaps alone at a manufacturing site. In these environments, there is often a strong need to divide the working environment into safety zones, due to risk levels, such as safe office zones and less safe zones (e.g. patrol routes) where there may be a risk of assault, exposure to violence or being left hurt in a lone working situation.  

At COBS, we have developed a functionality that enables the wireless locationing system to be divided into safe and unsafe security zones. Automatic alarms will only trigger from a device when it’s located within pre-defined unsafe zones where, for example, a person:  

  • has fallen or dropped the device  
  • has been assaulted and is lying still for a certain period of time  
  • is running  
  • has the device stolen or pulled away. 

The back-up team will automatically receive a location of the triggered alarm for immediate locationing and support. COBS was able to develop this solution in record time based on end customer requirements and excellent collaboration with our partner ParCom Systems AG. 

Do you work in a risk exposed work environment and want to create a safe workplace through reliable and secure communication?  We are happy to assist you with our solutions.  

The SMART1 just got a little smarter (and it will get even smarter!)

 Our DECT smartphone, the SMART1, has many unique advantages and is used by customers who require a defined radio coverage and reliable on-site voice, messaging and alarm connectivity. These customers operate in industries such as marine, security institutions, hotel and hospitality and elderly care.SMART1 Android ver.5

 SMART1 is appreciated for its user-friendly and content-rich user interface and see precise location functionality as an essential feature for the backup team to locate a colleague in distress. This is where the SMART1 platform from COBS provides an outstanding communication solution.

We recently made a few generic improvements and further developed the Push-To-Talk (PTT), locationing and messaging service to the platform.

“Our DECT platform, including SMART1 is used in risk-exposed environments where reliability on the wireless network and connected handsets is critical to the user. It's important that we are constantly looking for improvements to create a safer work environment for our users," says Mikael Hamlin, developer at COBS.

We continue to extend the SMART1 software in order to further satisfy our customers' expectations for the platform.
