  • Clear Voice™ Planar Speakers for Emergency Paging Now Available

    Clear Voice Planar SpeakersTelecom & Data introduces Clear Voice™ planar speakers for emergency and general paging in manufacturing, sports stadiums and entertainment venues, and police and fire operations use. Originally developed for military applications, planar speakers deliver an unprecedented level of clear voice communication over distances greater than a mile, even in very noisy environments.

    Clear Voice planar speakers can save lives by delivering loud and extremely intelligible messages via a compact speaker. They are ideal any time there’s a need for voice communication in a loud environment, a large coverage area, or a long distance. Telecom & Data offers Clear Voice planar speakers that throw sound for distances of 100 yards, 140 yards, 250 yards, and 650 yards.

    The power and exciting ingenuity of this disruptive technology is hard to convey in words. Magnetic planar technology disperses sound waves differently – more like a beam of light, so sound waves do not scatter as the sound moves away from the speaker. As a result, the speaker transmits sound much farther without losing clarity. In fact, the acoustics become more powerful as the listening distance is extended, up to a mile.

    Clear Voice has integrated magnetic planar technology in mountable speakers designed for demanding environments such as manufacturing plants, distribution centers, sports stadiums, college campuses and concert and festival venues. Small, portable and durable hand-held speakers are available for police, fire and search-and-rescue operations – anywhere long-distance clarity and intelligibility are key.

    Clear Voice speakers can be installed separately or as an addition to existing paging systems, with three options for connectivity: Wireless, IP paging and analog. Fewer planar speakers are needed than conventional speakers, which reduces installation time and costs. Manufactured in the United States, Clear Voice speakers are weather-proof and built to deliver consistent, superior performance even with heavy-duty outdoor use.

  • Telcom & Data Integrates NOAA Weather Radio Tornado Early Warning System

    Great news for businesses located in tornado effected areas.  Telcom & Data has been working with Thunder Eagle, Inc., a leading manufacturer of Tornado Early Warning industrial grade NOAA weather radios for the past 25 years, to deliver early warning solutions to large commercial sound systems.  The Weather Eagle 100 receiver and the

    Tornado Early Warning NOAA Radio

    Alert Eagle 120 (SAME) Specific Area Message Decoder provide real time, reliable, and automatic source of weather alerts, filtered by specific weather events and geographical location into public address systems.

    The Thunder Eagle system was engineered for, and has been in active service in, weather mission critical locations such as PSAPS, business headquarters, factories, schools, security offices, sports venues, and command centers for decades. For example, Thunder Eagle systems are in active use automatically opening FEMA tornado shelter doors and setting off municipal tornado sirens throughout the country when the National Weather Service (NWS) issues tornado warnings.

    Thunder Eagle is happy to pre-program the receivers for specific weather threats such as tornados, flash floods, hurricanes, and blizzards and county locations to make installation as plug and play as possible.

    When asked about why Telcom & Data was recommending and installing the Thunder Eagle radios the President of Telcom & Data said, “ Thunder Eagle radios are able to provide severe weather detection faster and better than other sources. Giving people the ability to evacuate even 1 minute sooner can make the difference between life and death.”

    Thunder Eagle radios have many sophisticated diagnostic features that help to verify that the NWS alerts are actually being received and properly decoded, including recording the last weather alert into the receiver, both in analog audio format and decoded SAME for later playback and analysis. The NWS has often used these features to troubleshoot and maintain the national NOAA weather radio system. Consumer grade NOAA radios do not provide this level of sophistication and reliability. Special radio filters limit locally generated RF from interfering with the reception of weather alerts.

    For facilities that need full time weather forecasts, information and radar, in addition to warnings, Thunder Eagle integrates the Weather Eagle into a full web site with local professional weather station that is accessible through web browsers.

    The Thunder Eagle radio and encoder can be connected to Supervised Paging System to automatically broadcast a weather alert throughout a building notifying employees to take shelter.  For more information please call 800-335-0229 ext 834

    The Terra Server software can also be installed on multiple computers at the same time, associate with microphone paging desks, IP matrix, and IP terminals. In the network, at least one computer must act as TERRA-SERVER and carrier the content of prerecorded messages and the music libraries. This server-PC is also used for system configuration settings and logging. Because this server plays a vital role in the system it can be linked to a back-up server system.

    The system offers features such as single button access to individual classrooms, page all rooms, inputs for background music or recordings, and tone signals for class start and stop times.

  • 10 Ways to Reducing Exposure to Telephone Hacking

    Telephone system hacking is as old as the telephone it’s self. From climbing telephone poles like our favorite Eddie Albert’s character Oliver Wendell Douglas on the 60s TV show Green Acres to the latest high profile FEMA phone system hacking, making free phone calls has not lost it’s appeal. Most hacker calls being made are going to the Middle East to countries like Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, India, Turkey and Yemen, Once a system has been hacked the code is often sold on the street. From small businesses to the phone companies, hacking is big business. How big can a hacking problem get? Consider Edwin Pena. He set up two companies Fortes Telecom Inc. and Miami Tech & Consulting Inc. and through sophisticated hacking and VoIP call routing, profited over one million dollars back in 2006. With today’s sophisticated VoIP phone systems hackers have more opportunities then ever before. Below is a list of 10 ways you can help protect your company from hackers. 1. Hire a company to do a thorough security analysis of your phone system security. If you can’t afford a $ 12,000.00 phone bill from hackers your company may need this more then a large company. 2. Hackers that left FEMA holding the bag for $ 12,000.00 recently used the Voice Mail system to get in to the system. Make sure your voice mail system does not have the default passwords and that out bound calling features are turned off or addressed. Many voice mail systems can make out bound calls to notify you of messages. This can be used to make calls through your phone system. 3. Old voice mail boxes need to be deleted. If your business is like most, people come and go but voice mail boxes remain active and do not get removed. Delete all old voice mail boxes. 4. DISA is a phone system feature designed to allow companies to use their phone systems to place out going calls remotely. DISA or Direct Inward System Access allows just that. Access to your phone systems telephone lines through the phone system. It was developed long before Cell Phones as a way to reduce old expensive telephone calling cards. Really a favorite among hackers. 5. Auto Attendant used for routing calls can also transfer calls to off site locations make sure if you aren’t doing this that this feature is turned off. If you are using it this feature change your passwords frequently. 6. Call forwarding to outside numbers is another feature while wonderful for working remotely leaves open a window of opportunity. Make sure who ever needs this feature really needs it and make sure this feature is turned off for everyone else. 7. Operator transfers are another way hackers can use your phone lines to make calls. A caller posing as a telephone company repairman will call and say he is testing the phone lines and if the operator would please transfer them to 910333 or 910XXX— these are access numbers to Sprint or any other phone company to make calls direct through your lines through the phone companies network. The phone company will then bill back the call to you at the most expensive calling rate. For more on this check out Sprint’s Corporate security guide. 8. Old Direct Dial Numbers that are no longer being used should be removed for your phone systems numbering scheme until needed again. Hackers are looking for anyway in to your systems. 9. Conference Call Systems and Conference Bridges should be password protected. Hackers can get in to conference bridges to listen to sensitive corporate information. Use in house bridge as opposed to an out side conference call service for maximum protection. An in house conference bridge can be placed behind your company’s firewall and passwords can be changed for every conference. 10. Call Accounting Software such as Tapit Call Accounting can help reduce un authorized phone calls. The Tapit Fraud alert module alarms you when set calling parameters are being breached by sounding an alarm and a text message.
