Singlewire Paging Gateway™ for deploying InformaCast  Across a WAN

paging-gateway.jpgSinglewire’s InformaCast® solution uses multicast in order to provide the speed and scalability of network-based mass notification. Some environments make it difficult to use multicast audio streaming across the WAN (wide area network), either due to routing or bandwidth limitations. With the Singlewire Paging Gateway™ you can send audio across the WAN without needing to route multicast across the WAN.

Here's how it works:

  • Within InformaCast, send an audio message
  • Audio is sent from InformaCast unicast to the Paging Gateway over the WAN
  • The Paging Gateway at the remote site turns the unicast audio into multicast audio
  • The phones and IP speakers receive and play the multicast audio

You can choose whether to run Paging Gateway on a server you supply or on a ready-to-run appliance from Singlewire. To deploy one or more Paging Gateways, you must also be running the InformaCast virtual appliance 8.0.2 or higher.

Podcast - Singlewire Multicast and SNMP Network Testing Kit Overview

Singlewire Software has developed two simple software tools that network engineers can use to determine whether your organization has multicast, SNMP, and AXL set up correctly on the network. These tools offer a great “quick check” of the network and are an easy way to validate that your systems are configured correctly. The Singlewire Multicast Tester can be used when your organization is not getting audio but insist that multicast is working on the network.

Learn more about this tool from Singlewire by listening to the podcast or transcript below.

OK, Peter can you tell us about the multicast and the SNMP network testing kit that you have on the site?

Yeah, the SNMP networking tool or the CUCM tester as I like to call it and the multicast testing tool are things that I developed for our support team mainly and for implementation engineers because when some of the more common errors that people run into involve these items.
