Ascom Receives Follow-Up Order for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy from Sanatorium Kilchberg

Ascom received a follow-up order for psychiatry and psychotherapy, Sanatorium Kilchberg. The clinic equips its personnel with Ascom i62 Protector and Messenger versions. For many years the Sanatorium Kilchberg in the Swiss town of the same name has relied on solutions from Ascom for its communications infrastructure. In the context of modernization, the clinic staff was provided with a contemporary WLAN-based telephone system. In the process, VoWiFi handsets supporting the IEEE-802.11 standards a, b, g and n are being used for the first time in Switzerland. The eight year-old telePROTECT alarm paging system with infrared localization system was replaced in the past year with a WLAN-based solution. The new infrastructure was also delivered and installed ready for use by Ascom. 190 mobile devices of the type Ascom i62 Protector and 15 devices of the i62 Messenger variant are now being used as a personal emergency system in the form of receiving units and alarm devices. All devices of the series i62 can be easily integrated into the most varied network topologies. The Ascom i62 is the first VoWiFi handset that is compatible with all IEEE-802.11-a/b/g/n networks. With complete support of the standard IEEE-802.11 n, the system offers higher throughput and improved range, without having a negative impact on network capacities. Updates can also be installed via wireless fidelity. The device configurations are saved centrally, which simplifies replacement of the device and usage by several persons.
