Washington County deploys IPcelerate wireless system.
A wireless security environment has been deployed by IPcelerate Inc, a provider of advanced communications-based software applications, for all county judges in Washington County, PA, in the US.
IPcelerate integrated wireless panic buttons into an IP telephony environment, using its IPsession 2500 system, to ensure a direct and immediate response to any panic signal issued in the county courthouse, grounds and parking areas.
Judges, who are often threatened by criminals and ex-criminals, will each be issued with a radio-frequency alert button to carry with them. Should a panic button be pressed, the IPsession server uses the Cisco IP Communications network to identify each judge uniquely by name and location.
IPcelerate's system works with the Washington County VoIP network and is expected to improve security measures for judges and resolve their safety concerns. The IPsession server is also being used by Washington County to improve other areas of communication and increase situational awareness solutions, such as PTSN-dial out, paging and intercom functions.
