There is no questioning that keeping your school moving in lockstep takes the right solution. All the while, being asked to do more with less financially puts technology decision-makers in a challenging place. How do you keep campus communications connected and secure while working within a tight budget? The answer can be simple - expansion versus replacement!


When considering the investment of upgrading to a district-wide critical communications system, options are essential. The Telecenter U (TCU) system offers several migration options to help you make the most of your current technology investments while gaining the benefits of a modern comprehensive district-wide solution.

1. Telecenter U as an Overlay to your existing Rauland System:
Invest in future communications technologies slowly over time. Enhance your existing Telecenter paging and intercom systems with district-wide emergency communications and management. Leverage your current investment in infrastructure and upgrade to district-wide communications through browser-enabled bell scheduling and district-wide lockdowns. No matter where you are or virtually what device you are on, you can securely control your district's communications with browser-enabled access.

2. Use Your Existing Network:
Manage your district-wide and local emergency communications through your network without the need to install analog wiring. Telecenter U is entirely IP compatible and topology agnostic allowing it to communicate through your network to deliver a best-in-class solution for handling emergencies, events and everyday communications.

3. Optional Add-Ons:
As an enhancement to all system notifications, you can add status lights and message boards, with the ability to stream to SIP-enabled endpoints. You can also access building and district-wide real-time mapping. Additionally, integrations are available to your building and security systems with an advanced API interface. With any migration option, you can add-on visual communications to the system to increase the effectiveness of your messaging.
