The university can provide both routine and emergency paging.
The Revolution paging system from Intrado (formerly known as Syn-Apps) works in conjunction with the campus phone system. All current campus phones are supported endpoint devices for this service with the page being played through the speakerphone. Revolution can also use a number of certified third-party devices, such paging speakers or strobe lights, which are compatible with the campus VoIP system.
Please note that the Jabber softphone client is not a supported device to receive pages. It can, however, be used to initiate a page.
Further details on supported third-party devices can be found on the Intrado/Syn-Apps website.
Each device is placed within a paging group as an endpoint and each paging group is assigned a unique dial code. Paging group members can dial the code and enter a security PIN (optional) to begin paging. Pages may be routine in which busy phones within the group do not receive the page or as an emergency in which all group phones receive the page, regardless of status.
