The Ascom VoWiFi system is ‘vendor agnostic’ supporting a full range of open standards, such as IEEE 802.11i and IEEE 802.11e. This ensures a high level of security and voice quality, while also accommodating a comprehensive spectrum of existing communication platforms including a full range of, PBXs, switches, access points, LAN, PBXs and existing IT-infrastructure. Our solution can also be integrated with virtually any third party management and control tools such ERP, fire alarms and OPC.
VoWiFi can be conducted over any Internet accessible device with a WiFi connection, including laptops, PDAs or VoWiFi phones, such as Ascom’s i75. The effect of using a LAN or WAN, also enables any location away from the main site to be seamlessly coverd without the need for additional PBX equipment. There is no upper size limit to the Ascom solution, it is only constrained by the capacity of the wireless LAN.
