Ascom Introduces Award Winning Integrated On-Site Communications for Senior Living Facilities in North America

Ascom Wireless Solutions, a global leader in mission-critical communications systems, announces availability for its award-winning teleCARE IP emergency call systems to senior living facilities in the United States and Canada.

Ascom’s teleCARE IP systems are the most flexible and comprehensive on-site communications solutions available for senior living facilities. The solution’s state-of-the-art technology is among the first in emergency call systems to comply with the new UL 2560 standard. Ascom’s teleCARE IP continues to build upon its successful launch in the European market, and has twice received the prestigious Red Dot design award for its Resident Handset and Wireless Alarm Transceiver product design.

“Our goal is to help senior living facilities reassure residents whenever they need assistance by providing reliable communication and visual confirmation that their request has been received,” says Jan Ringenier, Product Manager at Ascom.

Proven in facilities around the world, teleCARE IP delivers unmatched quality, reliability and ease of installation. This state of the art solution is also well-equipped to meet the requirements for large and small senior living establishments since the system is highly scalable and configurable.

Additionally, teleCARE IP provides an optional voice module for immediate communication between residents and staff. Increased safety is made possible by the integrated positioning technology built into the mobile devices worn by residents and staff. Also, the teleCARE IP system gives senior living providers the capability of offering residents a choice of either a wireless pendant or wrist alarm transceiver. Other resident choices that can be made available include several remote control styled handsets ranging from the most simplistic design to one that provides advanced features such as room lighting, window shade, additional radio/TV controls, flashlight, and more.

“Ascom’s complete communication solution, including emergency call systems, Unite Messaging Suite and wireless voice systems, helps minimize interoperability risks and ensures end-to-end functionality, all from a single manufacturer. This allows caregivers to focus on what they do best, caring for residents, while utilizing an intuitive and dependable clinical communication solution“, says Sai Kolluri, Director Global Marketing, Patient Systems at Ascom.

Distribution is provided by Ascom’s Strategic Partner channel which consists of highly trained resellers to ensure installation consistency and responsive support and service.

The teleCARE IP emergency call system will be displayed at Ascom’s Booth #1219 at the ALFA show which runs from May 19-22, 2014 in Phoenix, AZ

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle.
