Preserving continuity so you can reach people—no matter what

No matter how urgent a message is, it still needs to be sent in a way that will ensure people see and respond to it quickly. That’s why Singlewire Software offers InformaCast with Microsoft Teams to deliver emergency notifications directly to individuals via Microsoft Teams.

InformaCast High Availability

Fusion Failover

Failover is data center resiliency. A typical architecture has two InformaCast Fusion servers deployed at separate data center locations. One houses the primary InformaCast Fusion server, while the other houses the backup. If the data center housing the primary Fusion server goes down, it would be detected by the InformaCast Fusion cloud infrastructure. The InformaCast Fusion cloud infrastructure would notify the backup InformaCast Fusion server, which would then activate and become the primary Fusion server.

See the High Availability Planning Guide and User Documentation to ensure your environment, devices, and use cases are supported.

Survivable Remote Site Notification (SRSN)

When the network is down between your data center and your remote site, you want messages to continue to be sent and received at those remote sites. Configuring Survivable Remote Site Notification with the InformaCast Fusion server at a site (either virtual or hardware appliance), notifications continue to operate. This includes live, ad hoc, and pre-recorded audio, as well as DialCast, bell schedules, and more, to keep everything running smoothly.

Distributed Activation

Distributed Activation refers to this feature’s ability to distribute the notification workload across multiple InformaCast Fusion servers. For organizations with thousands of IP phones and IP speakers, Distributed Activation offers an easy way to scale on-premises notifications, so thousands of IP devices can receive critical messages as fast as possible.

InformaCast Fusion Server Appliance

The software version of InformaCast Fusion requires users to have virtual computing resources, but this can be a challenge at remote sites, such as rural schools, remote campuses, and clinics, where these resources are more difficult to access.

With the InformaCast Fusion Server Appliance, these remote locations can have an on-site server that makes it possible to still send mass notifications without the virtual computing resources.

The InformaCast Fusion Server Appliance is IEC and UL 60950 certified and is delivered to you ready to run on a compact, integrated server designed for indoor use.
