Paging Gateway

A solution for deploying InformaCast® across a wide area network


A solution for deploying InformaCast® across a wide area network

Some environments make it difficult to use multicast audio streaming across the WAN (wide area network), due to either routing or bandwidth limitations. With the Singlewire Paging Gateway™ you can send audio across the WAN without needing to route multicast across the WAN.

How it works ...

  • An audio message 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.
