The BlackBerry® AtHoc® management system uses the
IIMadd-on module interface with Giant Voice (GV) outdoor warning devices to enable wide area Mass Notification System (MNS) broadcasts. Giant Voice features can broadcast critical information using voice messages, wave files, musical tones, or text-to-speech (TTS) conversion. This guide describes the
AtHocinteroperability using the
IP Integration Module (IIM)utilizing the OASIS Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) 1.2 standard. This ability via non-IP means, will combine the
AtHocnetwork-centric enterprise alerting capabilities with
SiRcomGiant Voice notification systems, while integrating over non IP interfaces.
BlackBerry AtHocmanagement system is integrated with the
SiRcomGiant Voice System, operators can disseminate emergency alerts to the siren system from the
BlackBerry AtHocmanagement console. Alert messages can be delivered using key functions programmed in the
SiRcomGiant Voice hardware or software, text-to-speech or pre-recorded audio files to dynamically selected targets. Targeting choices are All Poles simultaneously, individual Zones of poles, and Poles.
BlackBerry AtHocintegration with
SiRcomvoice notification systems provides the following capabilities:
- EnableBlackBerry AtHocto activate emergency notifications inSiRcomVoice notification systems.
- End previously activated messages.
- Monitor the connectivity status to theSiRcomGiant Voice notification system and view its operational states: All operational, partially operational (degraded), and failure.
