Enabling a safer, more efficient University experience
Universities are large, diverse organisations with facilities often spread over large campuses or dispersed across cities. To ensure operational efficiency and safety on campus and student dormitories campus security, wardens and other staff require reliable communications able to unite different sites into one effective entity.
Hytera offers PMR and PoC solutions as well as converged technology platforms that enable the integration of multiple technologies for improved efficiency and situational awareness.
Good communications are paramount in helping universities run efficiently and enabling teaching, administration, and service staff to work more productively and to deliver a more effective and quality experience for students.
Universities are complex organisations. PTT communications help them run smoothly and enable teachers, admin, maintenance, welfare, cleaning, catering and caretaker/security staff to carry out their duties more efficiently.
Instant PTT connectivity via radios or PoC devices enables university administrators to communicate with particular call groups simultaneously, rather than have to contact them all individually, for faster response.
Radios can support job ticketing, status messaging and workflow management systems to enable university support staff to carry out electronically assigned tasks and to confirm when jobs are completed.
Hands-Free Wireless operation
Integrated Bluetooth technology enables discreet wireless earpieces to be worn allowing university staff and security personnel to keep in touch with supervisors and colleagues, while still carrying out tasks.
Enhanced Worker Safety
A variety of safety features can be added to radios, so in addition to emergency calling they can send automatic safety alerts meaning university staff are better protected.
Radios come with an emergency ‘panic’ button, which can be programmed to send an alarm to the command centre and to other radios, along with the person’s ID.
Man Down and Lone Worker
Higher tier radios support Man Down alarms, that are triggered if a user has fallen over and the radio is horizontal and Lone Worker alarms if the radio is inactive beyond a set time.
GPS-enabled radios allow users to be located and tracked outdoors, while indoor location beacons or Wi-Fi can be used to locate school personnel working indoors.
Small personal alarms issued to female teaching staff and students, which will sound an alarm when pressed and send an alert to control centres and to security guard radios.
Private radio systems provide dependable coverage than mobile cellular networks across large university campuses with high levels of availability and reliability. PoC broadband communications can also be used to extend the network.
Reliable RF coverage
Relying on mobile phones can be problematic. Private radio networks can provide coverage and capacity exactly where it is needed thereby eliminating not-spots across the university footprint.
Connecting alarms to devices
DMR radios can be connected to alarms such as smoke detectors and intrusion alerts ensuring the right people are informed immediately and enabling a faster response to any problem.
SCADA and IoT
The DMR network can transmit SCADA and M2M data enabling remote automation and asset control such as smart building control for air conditioning, heating, lights, CCTV and alarms.
University FM and security staff with bodycams can record incidents or faults. If Wi-Fi or broadband is available live video can be streamed to control centres for greater situational awareness.
