Multicom Quantum IP

Bogen’s Multicom Quantum IP is a comprehensive communications network that connects administrative areas and staff locations in a single building, multiple building sites throughout a school campus, or an entire school district. It is filled with a variety of quality features and functions you can rely on every day for routine communications as well as depend on should an emergency situation occur.

Programming and changes are securely accessed and conveniently configured over the facility’s network, or the internet. Authorized personnel may access Quantum using a web browser on any computer at the school or off-site. For new constructions and schools or districts that are expanding in size, Quantum uses the LAN/WAN connections for programming and sending of audio messages and pages so there is no need for dedicated intercom cables between buildings or across long distances.

Zone paging and All-Call Emergency Paging assures that messages sent from an Administrator location are distributed exactly and only to the desired locations. Sophisticated emergency features and functions help you, your staff, and students in a crisis situation.

Options and access can be customized for each station. System options include direct dial 911, re-routing of emergency calls to a different station type in the same location if busy, choice of 4 dedicated emergency alarm tones, and system-wide emergency All-Call.

Already Have Multicom? Just Add Quantum! Existing Multicom 2000 systems can be easily and cost effectively upgraded to Quantum functionality since the Quantum processor card is backwards compatible. Quantum seamlessly integrates with existing Multicom 2000 hardware, connected to a network, and provides greatly enhanced features and functions.

Benefits for School Administrators

Browser-Based Remote Access

Administrators get easy browser-based control of facility bell schedules, prerecorded announcements, and alarm tones. Since the control is browser-based, special software is not needed. A URL and a password is all you need to access Quantum Commander from any location.

Instant Notification When Secure Areas Accessed

Quantum’s Security Zones can provide real-time notification of access into sensitive facility areas. As soon as a sensor is tripped, Quantum sends an alert via the administrator’s phone or wall display.

Station Call Rollover

When a speaker and a telephone device are both located in a classroom, an administrator will always get through with Quantum’s rollover feature. If one device is being used, then the administrator’s call will automatically rollover to the other device.

Administrator Phone Groups

Quantum allows administrator phones to be assigned into groups to ease managing calls when others are out of the office. If the destination phone isn’t answered within 30 seconds, Quantum will automatically route the call to the other phones in the group.

Survivability — Distributed Integration

Quantum is designed to survive network crashes by allowing individual processor nodes to operate autonomously. Losing network communications to one piece of Quantum hardware does not affect the others and even the affected hardware continues to operate, delivering bells and providing communications for devices connected to it locally.

Fail-Safe Features

As an added safety measure, a mass notification feature can be hard-wired to all Quantum nodes within a facility, ensuring that Emergency All-Calls can be made during a complete system-wide network failure.

Programmable Calendar and Holiday Schedules

Quantum contains a complete calendar function and holiday schedule feature that allow accurate and automatic execution of bell schedules throughout the year or years to come. Schedules are customizable, and easy to change. Calendars also allow automatic Daylight Savings Time adjustment.

Limit Outgoing Student Phone Calls

Quantum’s Student Phone feature provides students with the ability to make outgoing calls without abusing the privilege.

Benefits for Facility Managers

Scalable To Your Needs

Quantum is extremely scalable and flexible. Quantum processor nodes can be deployed in the appropriate capacity for each location to make installation and maintenance as effective as possible.

Runs On Existing Network

Quantum uses the school’s existing network to trunk the voice and data signals between processor nodes. This can eliminate thousands of feet of interconnecting home-run wire, as well as any associated conduit, trenching, surge protectors and labor costs. This provides obvious benefits in the installation phase as well as the system’s long-term maintenance.

Network/Internet Setup & Maintenance

Quantum allows facility maintenance personnel or contracted dealers a simple means to remotely configure and diagnose the system operation through the facility’s network or over the Internet.

Network Time Synchronization

If provided with internet access, Quantum can synchronize with network time servers. This ensures accurate time and correctly sets and adjusts daylight savings time.

Benefits for District Superintendents

A System That Grows As You Need It To

Quantum is an expandable system. You can configure the system for your entire district all at once, or you can purchase for each individual school or building location over time.

Communications For All, As Needed

Point-to-point calls between different facilities, All-Call paging into individual facilities, and District-Wide All-Call paging to all facilities.

Benefits for IT Directors

Leverage Existing Network

Quantum leverages the facility’s existing network to interconnect multiple processor nodes located throughout the facility. The network carries Quantum’s system control data and VoIP-based communications to other system nodes. Nodes then convert the calls to and from the analog domain for delivery to their associated classroom end-of-line devices.

SIP Telephones

Since Quantum is VoIP-based, VoIP (SIP) telephone devices can communicate with it. These devices allow a simple and effective way of adding stations to an existing system.

Duplicate Databases Secures Critical Data

The Quantum Commander, which is resident on each Quantum node, acts as a web server and provides browser-based access to the configuration and diagnostic features of the system. Each node holds duplicate databases for the system, providing redundancy for critical data.

Node Operation Not Affected By Network Outages

Since even robust networks may fail, Quantum is designed to survive network crashes. All processor nodes can operate independently of one another. If a network connection is lost to one, the others remain operational. Even the affected node continues to operate, servicing bell schedules and local calls.

Powerful Processor Card

The Quantum processor card is designed around a 250MHz Power PC microprocessor platform running a Linux OS. This provides plenty of processing power and a processor card that will keep up with enhancements in system software for many years to come.
