Singlewire InformaCast Is Now Bundled With Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Cisco Business Edition 6000 to Provide Basic Paging and Emergency Notification

MADISON, WI, Jan 28, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- Singlewire Software, a developer of network-centric notification software for emergency communication and IP paging, today announced the release of InformaCast Basic Paging with Cisco. InformaCast Basic Paging will initially be bundled and shipped with the latest release of Cisco Unified Communication Manager (CUCM) 9.1 and Cisco Business Edition 6000, followed shortly thereafter with availability for all Cisco CUCM customers running version 8.5 or greater. As a Preferred Solution Developer in the Unified Communications category of the Cisco Developer Network, Singlewire has completed interoperability verification testing required by Cisco.


As part of this offering, InformaCast will now operate in two modes: Basic or Advanced. InformaCast Basic Paging provides phone-to-phone live audio paging for all CUCM users to a maximum single group size of 50 Cisco IP phones simultaneously. Unlimited paging groups can be configured with 50 users per group. The solution can be configured and used for sending an audio announcement to a single phone or groups of phones within an organization, and is available free of charge.

For those customers requiring additional functionality, InformaCast Advanced Notification is a full-featured emergency notification solution that enables organizations to reach an unlimited number of phones with text, and live or pre-recorded audio messages.

Notification can also be sent to IP speakers, existing analog overhead paging systems, computer desktops via a pop-up client or Cisco Jabber IM, IP-based digital signage, email, and social media sites including Facebook and Twitter. In addition, InformaCast Advanced Notification can also be used for automatically sending weather alerts, monitoring for 911/emergency numbers dialed within an organization, initiating an emergency conference call session with managers, and triggering notification to and from other networked systems.

The bundling of InformaCast Advanced Notification with Cisco CUCM means that all Cisco CUCM customers operating version 8.5 and greater will have a powerful emergency notification platform built into their environment and can easily unlock these advanced features with the purchase of a subscription license from Singlewire.

The Cisco Developer Network unites Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers, harnessing the power and intelligence of the network.
